At last, BioWare representatives came out with the game peculiarities and a plot of the fantastic shooter Anthem. The information was presented during the press interview at PAX West 2018 held in Seattle.
The developers tried not to revolve around the chosen one who influences the future of the Universe. The motto of Anthem is ‘Our World, My Story’. This reflects the concept that lies in small but important parts of the game and interpersonal communication. Anthem adventures are expected to be diversified and stories – be maximally familiar to each player. One of the approaches towards the plot provided by BioWare is MMORPG by Square Enix.
Players are to be plunged into the changeable world. They will be led by the Agents, special characters of the Universe. According to the idea of the developers, the characters will be able to communicate with a user after the mission ending: provide new details and hold dialogs. Each of the heroes is a created and well-worked identity whose character will develop during the walkthrough.
Dialogs will be first-person, which would diversify the usual for role-playing games image. BioWare representatives emphasize that the choice is players’. It is they who decide the further turn of events. Thus, different players may have completely different universes.
By the way, certain plotlines cannot be changed due to the idea of the developers. Meanwhile, the decisions made by a player will entirely change the game. Sometimes the changes will be slight, but later they will affect the plot.
The distinctive features of BioWare are also here: role-playing games and dialogs with their well-known and unchangeable style. Communication will help gamers make a choice concerning the further steps and solutions. Only two choices are available at one during the dialog.
The game database contains all the information about the characters allowing gamers to choose fellows out of multiple variants. The developers tried their best to create diversified and interesting characters. The development of personal relationships will take place at Fort Tarsis.
BioWare offers a special research mode for all the interested. It allows a gamer to independently and freely move around the Universe, observe locations, look for the artifacts, and get deep into the plot.
