The game surely turned heads with so many incredible features and created the right amount of hype but got into the skepticism of many with their disastrous demo launch, overly complex release schedule and overpriced cosmetic loot boxes in general.

Overall, Anthem could live up to be its own title with true potential given some time and even have a great fan-following like Destiny franchise. BioWare currently has plans of releasing post-launch content and updates to support the game for long.

With the newest generation of gaming consoles are about to be introduced and then soon launched into the market, it would be a great aspect for the online multiplayer title to let players carry over saves to PlayStation 5 or next-gen Xbox consoles.

One may think that BioWare and Electronic Arts dropped the trailer too early but they are going full throttle with Anthem marketing campaign to redeem the credibility of the publisher in market and make up to their VIP Demo disaster earlier.

Top 10 Most Anticipated Video Games of 2019

New Year looks promising for gaming fans and we are here with our top 10 most anticipated video games of 2019 that are going to blow everyone away.

Along with numerous bumps in the road, 2018 went somewhat well in terms of video games released throughout the year mostly because of wonderful games like God of War (2018), Marvel's Spider-Man, Monster Hunter: World and Red Dead Redemption 2.

We had few unfortunate stinkers like Fallout 76 and Metal Gear Survive but despite all that, 2019 is looking very promising with all the new and remake titles headed to launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One all year long.

Here are the top 10 most anticipated and long-awaited list of games players are waiting for in 2019 to launch on their favorite platforms.

01. Resident Evil 2

01. Resident Evil 2 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Of course this one will be at the top. Fans have been waiting like crazy for this anticipated remake of the ageless survivor horror classic for the last few years and even though this is a reiteration of the original Resident Evil 2, people are still excited as hell!

Rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield finds them amidst a zombie apocalypse in Raccoon City and tries to fight their way out. Developer/publisher Capcom went back to the root of horror with RE2Make using their revolutionary RE Engine.

02. Anthem

02. Anthem (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Although developer BioWare was not very successful in satisfying the fans with their last game Mass Effect: Andromeda, players are still willing to give them a chance with this one and admit it or not, it might actually course correct its way where Destiny 2 has failed.

This online multiplayer shooter avoids the typical norms of an open world environment and regardless of what some may think, it could really become a blockbuster hit. An Open Beta is currently scheduled for early February that you should take part in to see what they are offering.

kingdom hearts 3 playstation 4 xbox one
03. Kingdom Hearts III

03. Kingdom Hearts III (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Even though it basically is the twelfth installment from Kingdom Hearts series, it is the latest main entry coming on consoles from developer/publisher Square Enix, fourteen years after the release of Kingdom Hearts II as a worthy successor.

Series protagonist Sora is returning with his friends Donald Duck, Goofy, King Mickey and Riku to prevent the second Keyblade War. Popular Disney and Pixar characters will crossover during the journey alongside some familiar faces from Final Fantasy franchise.

04. Crackdown 3

04. Crackdown 3 (PC, Xbox One)
Okay, if Microsoft Studios delays the game for some reason this year again, we are officially not interested in it anymore. Because, the title was all set to launch in 2016 which is then got pushed to next year and the next after it settled for February 2019.

Despite all the skepticism it has given us, we still believe that the game can be one of the most successful title of the year 2019 if it can manage to live up to the promises it made to fans. The sort of in-game destructive mechanism it is offering is essential for an addictive multiplayer mode.

sekiro shadows die twice pc playstation 4 xbox one
05. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

05. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
In past, developer From Software has worked on games like Bloodborne and Dark Souls, which should give you an idea of the quality for their upcoming action-adventure title Sekiro and if you have seen any in-game footage so far, you know that we are not exaggerating.

However, the studio has no intention of making it anything like their past games at all. The game follows the chronicles of a fallen shinobi with a prosthetic arm who took it upon himself to go after a samurai for attacking him and kidnapping his lord.

devil may cry 5 pc playstation 4 xbox one
06. Devil May Cry 5

06. Devil May Cry 5 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
After a long departure following the commercial failure of DmC: Devil May Cry in 2013, developer/publisher Capcom brings back the action-adventure hack and slash game series with Devil May Cry 5 that is currently aiming at March 2019 release.

Both Dante and Nero are returning as playable characters in DMC5, which is set after the second game of the franchise. Aside from the signature combat system and photo-realistic graphics style, the game introduces The Void mode for extensive training.

star wars jedi fallen order pc playstation 4 xbox one
07. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

07. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
After the debacle of Star Wars Battlefront II, fans are not trusting Electronic Arts or EA DICE with the franchise anymore but with Respawn Entertainment on the development wheel, we have some hope that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will actually be good.

The game follows the narrative of a Padawan survived the Jedi purge after the events of Star Wars Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The title is going to focus on an action-adventure gameplay from third-person perspective and we may get an exclusive reveal before E3 2019 as well.

days gone playstation 4
08. Days Gone

08. Days Gone (PlayStation 4)
Zombie apocalypse is quite a cliché in the world of video game now that except for a few established franchises, not everyone is making it exciting anymore but developer Bend Studio showed enough promise with their upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive Days Gone that we were hooked.

The game took a different approach with the horde and making them fast runners like the ones from 28 Days Later but calling them "Freakers". Players will enter this journey of survival horror by assuming the role of bounty hunter Deacon St. John.

the division 2 pc playstation 4 xbox one
09. The Division 2

09. The Division 2 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Although the original game died down after a time by losing players for not having engaging endgame content and due to lack of updates, developer Massive Entertainment assures that they will not repeat the mistake with the anticipated sequel that is offering Year One DLC for free.

The series arguably has one of the best core gameplay that can outshine many other AAA titles but coming up with a satisfying endgame experience is also crucial to its success. A better progressing system can keep the upcoming online action RPG alive in the long-run.

mortal kombat 11 nintendo switch pc playstation 4 xbox one
10. Mortal Kombat 11

10. Mortal Kombat 11 (Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
For long, game director Ed Boon has been teasing the fans of Mortal Kombat series on the next release but each time they backed out of revealing it. Finally, developer NetherRealm Studios dropped an announcement trailer of MK11 during The Game Awards 2018.

The long-awaited game is going to release more details this month in a "Community Reveal" and will return in its gory glory within next four months with a possibility of introducing the Multiverse. The iconic brawler looks better and badass than ever.

To our deepest regrets, some of the top-notch game everyone has been looking for has not made it to the list because they do not have a definitive year of release officially announced yet, namely Cyberpunk 2077, Death Stranding and The Last of Us Part II.

Depending on your taste and viewpoint, you may have a completely different list in mind and we believe that is perfectly normal, because so many titles have been keeping the fans hyped up for 2019 and it is too damn hard to pass most of them from including into the list.

Anthem Game Awards 2018 Trailer

Brand-new footage from BioWare's online multiplayer game Anthem is released at Game Awards 2018.

Developer BioWare is returning to race of great game making and helming an ambitious project that is the first new IP for publisher Electronic Arts in a decade. We are talking about upcoming third-person shooter Anthem, which is due to February 22, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The studio already revealed major gameplay details during E3 2018 and a trailer alongside their stand with cross-play. Recently, they made a show at The Game Awards 2018 by releasing another spectacular video of their anticipated title.

The newest official trailer of the game explores further into the story and it offers an extended look into the futuristic world.

The video opens up once again on how Freelancers are fighting for generations to keep a remaining part of humanity from the hostility of a world that hides a lot more than it reveals. The Shaper gods that created the world has abandoned the planet long ago.

A mysterious force that is known as the Anthem of Creation which surrounds everything and impacts the life of everyone is the main focus of all. Moreover, there is a big-bad guy who seeks that absolute power for him to wield and has some sinister plan in mind for sure.

RELATED: Anthem E3 Trailer

Even though BioWare is renowned for their work on the Dragon Age series and Star Wars: The Old Republic, they failed to live up to expectation with Mass Effect: Andromeda; the last entry in Mass Effect series. However, the game looks promising enough to live up to their name and create its own legacy.

The closed alpha will be available later this weekend and the world of Anthem will open up for select players who sign up on the EA community website. Though the alpha program will be limited to some extent, it will be stress testing the servers while tweaking the matchmaking.

Anthem Won't Have Cross-Play or DLC at Launch

Though BioWare's Anthem is an intriguing project, it has no plans for cross-platform play or post-launch DLC content just yet!

With game-playing experience for players evolving every passing hour, cross-play is already the next big-thing for gaming industry and while everyone else is embracing this trend, Sony decides to be the grumpy uncle in all of this. Microsoft Studios and Nintendo have lately teamed up for sandbox video game Minecraft in a commercial, which made Sony look even bad. Looks like developer BioWare is also planning to lag behind with their upcoming action role-playing game Anthem.

Being an online multiplayer game, Anthem sure has the potential to be enjoyed over cross-platform play. What we saw by far at E3 2018 press conference, huge scope for exploring the story and rich gameplay will only be increased if players are allowed to play together over PC and consoles concurrently. However, despite everyone hoping for the game to be a milestone example of how much fun cross-play can be, BioWare is apparently opting out of that idea for now if not permanently.

RELATED: Top 10 Most Anticipated Video Games of 2018

Executive producer Mark Darrah of the developer studio has been answering a lot of questions from fans on Twitter and one such topic was about cross-play. When asked, he simply stated that currently they have no plans for that during the release but that doesn't mean they would never do that in any point. So, we can probably keep our hope alive just on the basis of that comment. Belonging to PC, who has many friends over consoles have to sit this one down for now and the time being.

Playing in squads are always fun and the way BioWare has build a vast world for their action RPG could become a huge hit if they would've embraced the movement but this push-back might not be appreciated by the players. Then in another Tweet, someone asked for their plans regarding any post-launch DLC content and that particular response wasn't very cheering either. It appears that the developers are treating the project on "games-as-service" model but that can change as well.



RELATED: Anthem Gameplay Details

If they could only considered this idea of playing over all platforms together, it could become a huge selling point for the game for sure. BioWare's online multiplayer game Anthem is currently marked for a February 22, 2019 release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. No matter how anticipating the game is, the news of it being devoid of cross-play or any post-launch DLC sounds like a nightmare that would diminish the fun in overall.

Anthem Gameplay Details

After long period of waiting, Bioware and Electronic Arts finally released more than a trailer and offered details on gameplay of Anthem.

Long after the first unveiling of the game, developer Bioware and publisher Electronic Arts finally released an official trailer for their open-world action role-playing game Anthem. The game is a main talking topic at E3 2018 press conference as it is coming from the same developers who previously worked on games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age. To satisfy many eagerly waiting fans, some gameplay details and plot elements of the title were revealed as well.

We already know that it sets up in a dystopian future where society has fallen because "God" has left them but humanity has found shelter. Freelancers among humans are trying to save their peers from a rival group called the Dominion. They are after a force known as "Anthem of Creation" to destroy whatever remains of civilization.

The game allows you to take part with three of your teammates to go and fight against Dominion. Freelancers wearing Javelin exosuits have four different types; Colossus, Interceptor, Ranger and Storm. Just as their name suggests, Colossus is good with hitting hard, Interceptor is lightning-fast, Ranger is versatile in features and Storm is a destructive force. Despite each of these suits have distinct nature; all of them are loaded with enough firepower to take down major obstacles.

These Javelins are up for some major customization, whether that is gear or guns. As you make sweet progress along the way, every kit and weapon will be unlocked, which means you don't have to buy loot boxes for advancement. There will be micro-transaction but the contents are strictly just some cosmetic items and skins. No pay-to-win mechanism there.

As a multiplayer action role-playing game, it will share a world with whole community of players. It could be night time or day, a stormy weather or clear sky, everyone playing online will experience that simultaneously. The world around you will never be the same and always be on constant change. Bioware has plans of providing post-launch content to expand the story further and maybe arranging time-limited events for everyone to join in to have some good time together.

Anthem release date is currently set for February 22, 2019 when it will see release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game seems to be a fun-ride, which will deliver a unique gameplaying experience mostly when played in teams, because the developers made it to play as group. That way, it is more rewarding for gamers but that doesn't mean you can't ditch a squad and join solo. Although many people are already trying to draw its resemblance with Destiny, it sure is different in many aspects and that will be settled once it comes out.

BioWare and EA finally showcased its shared world action-RPG of Anthem during EA Play, coming in February 2019.

After Mass Effect: Andromeda saw an unexpected sales drop in 2017; developer Bioware and publisher Electronic Arts effectively killed the Mass Effect series. All of their efforts are then invested into the Anthem game project, which also happens to be one of the top 10 most anticipated video games of 2018. We've been promised to get some glimpse at the game in development for some time after it was teased back at E3 2014 but had no luck so far until now.

Judging by its action-based gameplay, it is safe to assume that Bioware is finally stepping out of their comfort zone to create something extraordinary. Some are even saying that Anthem is going straight for Destiny's throat but we need to consider that both are two different types of game. After fighting long period in development hell, we sure are glad to see the game finally coming out of closet and hope that EA does not mess it up post-launch with some of their corporate agenda!
