Remember Anthem? It’s BioWare’s Destiny, which they introduced to various (our personal) pleasure again at E3. There’s been exactly zero information since with it even skipping Gamescom fully. Now, because of a tweet from sport director Jonathan Warner, we now know will probably be getting a beta – which, yeah, nearly everybody had guessed already.
For every thing we learn about Anthem’s javelin exo-suits, plus way more, examine our devoted article.
Here’s the tweet:

After the tweet was picked up by the small-but-dedicated Anthem subreddit, he answered just a few follow-up questions asking for particulars, however couldn’t actually say any extra. Anthem remains to be “a distance out” so it’s “too soon for details” on whether or not the beta will probably be open or closed, and which platforms we’ll get it on or the rest. It might merely be a Mass Effect: Andromeda model pre-order bonus, reasonably than something that can have an effect on improvement.
Honestly, we thought this had already been introduced, as a result of clearly it should want one given the complexity and promise of the mission and its on-line nature, plus it is simply a part of making large video games now. But I checked round and could not see an official announcement wherever, and everybody’s fairly shocked over on Reddit, so right here we’re.
In any case, Anthem’s nonetheless not anticipated till 2018. The subsequent time we’re more likely to hear something is without doubt one of the two upcoming PlayStation reveals – Paris Games Week on the finish of October or PlayStation Experience in December. Of course, it could skip them fully and easily be re-shown throughout E3 2018 for the large almost-here reveal.
