Best Upcoming Open World Games in 2019
BioWare’s first foray into the shared-world shooter genre is fast approaching. Anthem promises to deliver both an entertaining gameplay experience and a compelling narrative, which is a combination that has so far alluded developers trying to blend shooting and MMORPG design.
From what we’ve seen in extensive gameplay demonstrations, Anthem’s combat, traversal, and graphics look absolutely top notch. The production quality really is astonishing. But we’re less convinced that BioWare is actually going to be able to incorporate a decent story void of the branching narrative that its reputation has been built on.
What we can say is that Anthem’s open world looks absolutely stunning. Flying through the air in a Javelin suit, diving underwater, and then traversing dense jungles reminds us sci-fi settings like Avatar. The visual appeal is undeniable.
Let’s hope Anthem is the total package right from the off and BioWare is back to its best when the game launches Feb. 22.
