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.
