At EA Play, EA's pre-E3 2018 event the company also showed off some new multiplayer gameplay including movable weapon structures and an unprecedented level of destruction. The players' job, at its core, is to protect the free people of Tarkus, the name of the planet on which Anthem takes place. With all of the Star Wars hype surrounding the most recent trilogy and EA's own Star Wars Battlefront II, we definitely have this special universe on our minds and hopefully soon on our platforms. Oh, but it WILL feature a battle royale mode, creatively titled Royale. The new trailer surrounds a storm that's on the verge of wiping out civilization as we know it. For the first time since Madden '08, EA Sports will launch a full Madden game for Windows PC via its Origin service. This is obviously a very new and different path for BioWare games, as they're typically associated with romance - games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age had players swooning all over, but it looks like Anthem won't feature that at all. Doesn't sound too far from reality to me.

Anthem finally got its moment in the spotlight today, and while there was lots of buzz words being thrown around, we did see some gameplay and learn the game is releasing on 22nd February 2019. We've got more in-depth stories on all of these announcements elsewhere, and that's number one on the E3 2018 list ticked off.
