[Update: Anthem’s developer BioWare has promised a big story for Anthem after Mass Effect Andromeda fell short of fan expectations. Writing in a blog post, the studio’s general manager Casey Hudson emphasised the importance of world, character and storytelling and promised that they would be a part of Anthem, "a game designed to create a whole new world of story and character that you can experience with friends in an ongoing series of adventures.” Hudson goes on to say that though it will be unlike "anything you’ve ever played”, if it’s done as planned it will still feel "very distinctly BioWare.”
Hudson said that he plans to continue using the blog to update fans on the development process of the game.]

E3 is always full of surprises, and one announcement we weren’t expecting at E3 2017 was a whole new game from BioWare, called Anthem.

But while EA gave us our first taste of the game and what we might find in its Pandora-esque world, Microsoft gave us our first true look at its keynote presentation.
BioWare describes Anthem as “a new game from EA’s BioWare studio, explore a landscape of primeval beauty, confront the dangers you find, and grow in power with every step”.
