Anthem releases at the end of February 2019 and is shaping up quite nicely. Using four different types of unique armors called Javelins, you must team up with your friends and conquer a massive open world. This world was revealed by Bioware and EA earlier in the year, showing off the map size that’s set to include plenty of monster variety and mission types.
