The upcoming new property from Bioware, Anthem, brought a conclusion to Microsoft’s E3 2017 press conference. All six minutes, to be precise. Although teased at EA’s press conference yesterday, this marks the first time we’ve seen proper gameplay of the studio’s new IP.

From first impressions, Anthem mixes the lush world of the filmĀ Avatar with gameplay elements of Destiny and Titanfall. You take the role of a freelance monster hunter, going after beasts in shoot-em-up action with your friends online. You’ll don mech suits called Javelins that are fully customizable and allow the power of flight. All this takes place in a lush open world under a live service game component (think, again, Destiny or The Division).

Anthem is being developed at Bioware Edmonton, the legendary Bioware studio, under the code-name Dylan. EA confirmed that the game won’t be out until after March 2018.
