BioWare shows off 15 more minutes of Anthem gameplay footage

Anthem receives 15 minutes of 'Lost Arcanist' gameplay footage, and boy does it look BORING

BioWare's next game isn't too far away with Anthem set for release on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC on February 22 - but now IGN is ramping up the hype with 15 minutes from the game.



The new Anthem gameplay footage opens with a new mission from the start of the game where you'll need to track down and rescue an Arcanist called Mathias. The world and the mission itself is open-ended, and while the environment looks good the motion blur and lower quality graphics aren't great. This is an alpha build however, so things should hopefully improve in the coming weeks.


I don't know if it's just me, but holy crap does Anthem look boring. This isn't the type of pre-release hype video the game needs during CES 2019 and all of its hoopla, with Origin/EA Access members open to try the game out with a demo on January 25, I can see this being tested and sales being low and then EA discounting the game a few weeks after release and then BioWare staff jumping ship.


Maybe I'm just a cynic.
