"Anthem" is seemingly focused on mobility

Whereas "Destiny" is laser-focused on being a great first-person shooter, "Anthem" is seemingly focused on mobility. To that end, each of the Cheap Anthem Items game's suits has its own type of jet pack — the primary form of travel in "Anthem."Those jet packs enable players to fly through the air, and also to fly through underwater sections of the world. If we're being honest, it looks delightful — there are even little flourishes to embellish your flying. And who doesn't want to embellish their flying?

The planet that "Anthem" is set on is a bizarre world of monsters, ancient gods, and a tiny contingent of humanity that's barely hanging on.As a "Freelancer" — a human who wears a sweet, Iron Man-esque robot suit — you're in charge of keeping your fellow humans safe. And that means going out into the wild, taking on crazy monsters, and defeating them.

The overarching threat to the world is the monsters, but more specifically, that the monsters will get control of various "tools of the Gods" that were left behind. So the story of "Anthem" goes: The Gods set out to create the world in nine days, but stopped after three and disappeared. What they left behind is their tools — powerful artifacts that you, as a Freelancer, must keep from falling into the wrong hands.What this means in practice, most likely, is you'll find lots of sweet stuff to power up your character with out in the wilderness.

But "Anthem" is more than just fighting monsters and flying around — there's a whole city to explore when you're not taking down bad guys. The studio behind "Anthem," BioWare, is known for narrative-driven affairs — the "Dragon Age" series, the "Mass Effect" series, and more.That's why "Anthem" is such a surprise. It's a gameplay-driven, online-only game. That's a first for BioWare, and it has some fans worried. Where is the story? Where are the characters?

The answer, it seems, is "in Fort Tarsis."In humanity's last stronghold, you'll encounter characters who may or may not give you missions. You'll interact with the crew that maintains your crazy robot suit. Perhaps you'll visit a vendor or two and pick up some swanky gear upgrades? The point is that the main "story" of the game plays out in Fort Tarsis — the missions you do outside of the fort are the same missions that everyone else will play, and they focus on combat more than narrative storytelling.  image
