BioWare Teased Dragon Age Announcement

Developer BioWare hinted at possible announcement of an upcoming sequel of their fantasy RPG franchise Dragon Age.

While talking about their upcoming project Anthem, developers BioWare has revealed that they are also working on some secret Dragon Age stuff and thus, straight out hinted at an upcoming announcement of something big at The Game Awards 2018.

General Manager Casey Hudson of the studio mentioned their work as "secret" in a Blog Post and given the upcoming event is a place for many companies to reveal their upcoming release, a new installment from the popular fantasy RPG franchise would not be a shocker.

We thought we would straight up quote Casey Hudson on what he just wrote in his Blog for your own convenience.

If you’ve been following these blogs, or myself and Mark Darrah on Twitter, you know we’re also working on some secret Dragon Age stuff.  Dragon Age is an incredibly important franchise in our studio, and we’re excited to continue its legacy.  Look for more on this in the coming month (though I won’t tell you where to look…)

Players clearly have their fond memories with the first game, Dragon Age: Origins for countless hours and now that executive producer of Dragon Age: Inquisition, Mark Darrah is involved, we can hope for a fourth installment currently in development.

Inquisition was also the last game that came out in 2014 and followed up by downloadable contents till 2015. The studio also disclosed adding Alexis Kennedy of Failbetter Games as a guest writer for the next project of the series to expand a bit of lore.

We just hope and pray that this announcement doesn't end up being some major disaster like the reveal event of Diablo Immortal, because people didn't expect a mobile-only new game that was so hyped up from the past few months of the big reveal.

Hopefully, BioWare won't make a stupid move like that and whatever they are cooking up and ready to announce soon will be a new release for PC and other major consoles, so that the franchise can return to its glory days once again.

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.

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.

Below is a clip that elaborates on the combat gameplay features you are going to experience in Anthem game.

The exciting gameplay footage offers the closer look players have been waiting for all along, following the new cinematic trailer. 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.

You and three of your teammates can pick the one that suits your own style of approaching a mission or just go with the wind. 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.

Anthem E3 Trailer

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.

In its E3 2018 reveal, open-world action role-playing game Anthem unveils a brand-new cinematic trailer that will give the fans enough reasons to wait some more till it releases.

This expansive trailer offers a much better look and understanding of Anthem game, which is set in a futuristic dystopia. Civilization is ruined long ago but humanity still managed to save itself by surrounding some sort of wall around. Bio-mechanical extra-terrestrial creatures are rampaging everywhere and a small band of human survivors forming a fraction known as Freelancers wearing Javelin exosuit fights back in groups against those hostiles a savage environment.

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!

Anthem is an online multiplayer action role-playing game from Bioware and EA, which is set to release in February 22, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While many players are trying to compare the game to Mass Effect and Dragon Age, it actually departs itself from any past influence of studio's previous projects to create a persona of its own. Another video featuring gameplay details is about to drop soon and by the time the game releases, we will likely be seeing more footage of Anthem as well.

2017 has been a great year for PC gamers and console gamers as there were tons of great games out in the market the whole year-long that kept the players busy in their seats. While players around the world was hyped with games like Call of Duty: WWII, Destiny 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Super Mario Odyssey and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, many far greater titles were also announced and made headlines while left the bedazzled spectators in waiting for them to come out this year.

Yes, we are here now to talk about the most anticipated video game titles that people have been waiting for some time to drop in and chances are, you might find out some of your favorites among the list.

1. Monster Hunter: World (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Capcom is bringing the biggest and the best version of Monster Hunter game with the latest title of the series, Monster Hunter: World. Gaining a massive fan-base from all over the world, the game has gotten players on the edge of their seats for some time and these days, the popularity of the Monster Hunter series is not only limited to Japan anymore.




Hunting ferocious monsters while wielding large weapons and crafting tough armor to save your skin has never been this much fun before. You may not start playing this game as a fan but it will soon turn you into one if you give it some time. Plus, it will give you the multiplayer experience that you've been yearning for years.

2. Far Cry 5 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Ubisoft's latest installment from the Far Cry series comes the newest sequel of the action-adventure first-person shooter; Far Cry 5. Since their last title of the series, Far Cry 4 was more of a close re-incarnation of the third game and they were chastised by the fans for it, Ubisoft has emphasized on bringing enough change to prevent that from happening again. The game has been delayed for several times now because of the recent unstable state in American politics to avoid unwanted issues.




This is the first time the game took its open-world to USA and you may expect a little less wildlife around this new location with rural setting. When the game comes out, your job is to deal with the doomsday cult of Hope County known as Eden's Gate, formed by a radical preacher named Joseph Seed. This new approach to the established franchise may just work fine but we have to wait some more to be sure about it completely.

3. Red Dead Redemption 2 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Looks like fans of the Western-themed action-adventure cannot just wait for the tie of 2018, when they will get their hands on Red Dead Redemption 2. Though very little to no significant details about the game are out yet but players who've played Red Dead Redemption and had a good time are already dying on anticipation for the sequel.




As outlaw Arthur Morgan, players will experience an extensive story campaign and possibilities are that there will be online features. For now, the game is only limited to console players only but who knows if developer Rockstar Studios have any future plans to release the game on PC or not! We can only hope and wait for that.

4. God of War

4. God of War (PlayStation 4)
The first PlayStation exclusive game that entered the chart is Sony's newest release from the God of War series. Spartan warrior and a vengeful demigod Kratos returns to god-slaying business once again with the title simple called God of War. After slaying all the Greek gods, Olympians and Titans in previous installments, Kratos has set his sights on the gods of Norse myth. From the E3 press conference two years back, we haven't been able to gather too much of information about the game.




Since this one is a reboot on the original continuation after God of War III, some even regards it as God of War 4 as well. The game has largely revamped its gameplay and made major improvement on that part of simple hack n' slash it was mostly based on. Now that e is a father, his "rage meter" also constantly fluctuates during his quest. Perhaps, this new take on the game far from the original series may eventually bring it back to the glory it deserves.

5. Sea of Thieves

5. Sea of Thieves (PC, Xbox One)
Set on the heart of Caribbean, developer Rare's upcoming pirate-themed action-adventure cooperative multiplayer Sea of Thieves is one of the promising entry on the list even though many believes that it has the same potential of falling onto its face as it has the qualities of rising above all. Many “realistic” elements of the pirate culture are brought on board that players would enjoy with these marine outlaws.




If you hang out with the right crews then this loot-hunting multiplayer could be a great fun of your life. Whether you love to hunt for treasures or attack your rival crews, Sea of Thieves will never cease to entertain you. You can also customize your crews and cruise as you see fit before you set off exploring islands and caves. PlayStation 4 owners have to sit this one down for the moment as this one is only limited to PC and Xbox One right now.

6. Crackdown 3

6. Crackdown 3 (PC, Xbox One)
With Sony releasing so many fan-favorites this year for their home console, Microsoft Studios had to bring something to the table and Crackdown 3 was their pick that actually made it to the top. An action-adventure game set in an advanced, futuristic Metropolis, this one is the third chapter of the franchise that is coming after nearly eight years of its predecessor and that was back in 2010.




This one is not a game where a back-story actually matters that much or anyone really cares, Crackdown 3 is all about the superhero-like protagonists of that world jumping and crushing stuffs from their surrounding open-world environment. Though the game will also be released on PC, it surely will make use of the features of Xbox One. So, you get onto a spree of destruction with your hands behind the wheel of these hi-tech Agents once the game comes out.

kingdom hearts 3 release date
7. Kingdom Hearts III

7. Kingdom Hearts III (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
The last game that we ever played from Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts series was twelve years ago and in the mean time a handful of spin-off games and re-releases came out based on the original. Luckily, we are not having any of those and a full title is being released as Kingdom Hearts III. Donald, Goofy and Sora will be out in quest for the "guardians of light" to oppose the evil villain Master Xehanort.




The latest release will explore other classic worlds of Disney like Big Hero 6, Tangled and Toy Story. The protagonists of the story will have new abilities, improved combat system and five party members are now allowed to join for more epic battles. Unfortunately, the game is only meant for consoles and so PC gamers cannot seemingly take part in the adventure. With the release of Kingdom Hearts III, Disney and Square Enix is looking to make a sure score this year.

8. Dragon Ball FighterZ (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Literally thousands of anime loving fans were blown out of their minds when they first learned of Dragon Ball FighterZ, a fighting game from Arc System Works and Bandai Namco. Usually, the latter company makes Dragon Ball based video game titles and Arc System taking over on such a project was a bit hard for many to digest. However, the end result is a true spectacles because they really get it right for the first time in never before, thus giving Marvel Vs. Capcom series a run for their money.




From the design to the fighting nature of the Dragon Ball universe, everything is so much accurate that it's nearly unbelievable. Popular characters of the series like Goku, Vegeta and the rest of the roster are going to be available for you to best your skills in a fight. While the game is 2.5D, everything is actually rendered in 3D and the end result looks exact anime-like. For this amazing feat, Arc System Works truly deserves our praise and we cannot see any reason why the game will not rule on all platforms.

9. A Way Out

9. A Way Out (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
This one is almost certainly the only game in our list that actually kept heads down until E3 2017 and no one may have even heard about it ever. Other than the people who worked on the game, A Way Out from Hazelight Studios and Electronic Arts, none other was aware of the development. It is simply an action-adventure game from a third-person perspective, where you play through a split-screen and attempt for a prison break.




You will partner-up with another player whom you can randomly pick from online or you can just ask your best friend to play it with you. All you will be doing is try to escape from a prison where you two are kept in and the split-screen will give you a re-defined experience of co-op games. Critics are already in favor of this game and many players are already feeling hyped. So, let's see if this one actually makes it big upon debut.

anthem game pc
10. Anthem 

10. Anthem (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
For the sake of the Anthem game project, Bioware and EA have literally killed the Mass Effect series and put all the money and effort intended for. Following the unexpected sales drop Mass Effect: Andromeda has suffered, the company decided to invest their resources somewhere else. The creators of Anthem were really pushed to create a better quality open-world for this game, which will not disappoint the players.




Whatever little peak the developers have shown us till date makes it look all promising as far as the hero flies wearing those cool Javelin exosuit concerns. Now, whether or not Anthem turns out to be a successful project for them is just a matter of time to find out. Good news is that the game comes to all consoles and PC, so everyone who is excited about it can at least try it out for once.

All the game that had the close potential to make it to the list is Detroit: Become Human, Days Gone, Metro: Exodus, The Last of Us Part II, Marvel’s Spider-Man, State of Decay 2 and Shenmue III. Being PlayStation exclusives and also two of the most prominent release of 2018, the exclusion of both The Last of Us Part II and Marvel’s Spider-Man seemed pretty abnormal considering how crazy fans were about the games and how much promising they are. Code Vein, Yoshi, Darksiders III, Metroid Prime 4 and Psychonauts 2 also couldn't get into the top 10 for some unknown reason or perhaps fans were less enthusiastic about them in real than we thought.

We were surprised the most when maestro Hideo Kojima's newest project, the upcoming Death Stranding video game did not make itself count either. However, we strongly believe if there were any disbelief or doubts among the fans about the game, they will be surprised to see how wrong they were once the game makes its debut.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Free Trial Weekend

Since the moment developer studio BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts have released Mass Effect: Andromeda this March 2017, there's been some different buzz among the fans. Some, have loved it, some were not-so-nice about the latest release. But if you have been dubious about the game after hearing all that crazy rumor, here is your chance to test the water for yourself. Yes, BioWare has just announced on Twitter that you can have a trial of Mass Effect: Andromeda this weekend.

Also, the trial is available for all the platforms, which means, you can play it on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Here's the official Tweet regarding the announcement as well as a short reel from the game.



The players can play up to ten hours on the first planet of the game, Eos until entering the first vault and they are able to choose to play both single player and multiplayer. All they need is an EA Origin account and then choose their esteemed platform. After that, they are all set to unleash ten hours of RPG action. There was a new patch for Andromeda released recently, with added difficulty for multiplayer, other improvements and cinematic.

Should anyone choose to continue playing the game, all the progress made during the trial period will be carried over to the full game. So far, Andromeda didn't fare well upon release and especially critics was not somewhat favorable to the game that much. So, hopefully this helps EA change the tide a bit.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Launch Trailer

BioWare's upcoming action role-playing video game Mass Effect: Andromeda is going to be released within two weeks and gamers are being teased with many elements of the game every day, which makes the waiting even harder. But looks like the waiting part is gonna be over soon as BioWare and Electronic Arts has just dropped the official launch trailer for the game and it's spectacularly fantastic.

If you have not checked out the clip yet, then here goes the official launch trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda for you. Enjoy!



In this new chapter of Mass Effect, players will be taken to a voyage to the Andromeda galaxy as the Pathfinder to fight for a new home. Whatever they chose, as their course of action in that hostile environment will be deciding the fate of humanity, because, the dangerous new species of enemy, Archon, will not be showing any mercy or compassion towards us. Since Lieutenant Commander Shepard isn't around at the time of this crisis, it's up to Scott and Sara Ryder to save the day.

Canonically, Andromeda takes place between the events of Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. But the fine fact of this installment is that even if you haven't played any previous versions of the game, you can have a fresh-start from Andromeda without having to feel like left-off. Previously meant to release on holiday 2016, Mass Effect: Andromeda will hit the stores on 21st March in United States and will be available for playing on PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and PC.
