Anthem’s Lead Producer Reveals Lot’s of Juicy Information
BioWare’s lead producer Michael Gamble breaks down the Anthem trailer that was released by EA and BioWare at The Game Awards this past week. Gamble reveals various details of the game’s story and the world, as well as the background of the characters in the video.
Notably, Gamble explores the game’s main protagonist, Monitor, whose goal is to harness the Anthem for his own desires. In addition, Monitor works with a group called Dominion.
“I think what we want people to understand is, while Anthem is a very different game from games that BioWare’s done before, there’s still storytelling at its heart,” the game’s executive producer Mark Darrah said in a previous interview. “It’s still about characters, it’s still about getting to know people in the world and that we’re telling story through this new way of, what we call ‘Our World, My Story,’ which is about going out into a shared world where story things happen. But then your true storytelling agency happens in Fort Tarsis where those choices live and you have that single-player, more player-driven narrative experience.”
Anthem is set for a February 22 release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
