New Anthem trailer shows off Anthem’s world and story

The Game Awards brought us a new trailer for BioWare’s third-person looter shooter

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

During The Game Awards, BioWare introduced new footage from its upcoming online-multiplayer game, Anthem. The new trailer for EA’s third-person looter shooter showed off a story trailer for the upcoming game, finally giving a face to the evil in the world.

The new trailer helps give some additional context to the world of Anthem. While the developers have been hosting some livestreams on their own Twitch channel, this is a good look at how Anthem’s story will look once the full game is available.

Despite being a game more akin to Destiny than Dragon Age, Anthem will still strive to have a story and player choice within it. While these choices will only be visible to the player that made them’s world, the game aims to keep the dialogue focused gameplay that BioWare fans are used to intact for the most part.

Anthem will be released for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on Feb. 22 of next year. The closed alpha for Anthem will be available for select players later this weekend.
