At last night’s EA Play event at The Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, EA revealed that Anthem would launch on February 22nd, 2019.
Anthem, the brand-new IP from BioWare, is a social, connected action-RPG focused on co-operative multiplayer. Set on an unfinished world, abandoned by the Gods, players must wear powerful Javelin exosuits to survive. Teaming up they must face the dangerous and ever-changing world through exploration and combat.
In Anthem, up to four players can explore and battle together. Players will also create stories of their own while they play, so no two journeys are the same. Javelin exosuits make their pilots powerful heroes in the world, with awesome weapons and incredible special abilities. Players will be able to customize and personalize their suits with unique paint jobs and gear so they’ll have the right tools to confront almost any situation, and look good doing it.

Players excited to enter the dangerous world of Anthem are now able to pre-order the game. Those who do will receive VIP demo access and a unique in-game Founders banner. Those who pre-order the Anthem standard edition will also receive a legendary weapon and the Legion of Dawn Armor Pack for the Ranger Javelin as part of their pre-order content. In addition, those who purchase the Legion of Dawn Edition of Anthem for pre-order or after launch will also receive the full set of Legion of Dawn Armor Packs (including the Ranger Javelin Legion of Dawn Armor Pack), a Ranger Javelin gear attachment, the digital soundtrack and more.
Anthem is developed by BioWare and will be available for Origin for PC, Xbox One and PS4. Origin Access Premier members can be the first to play the full game, with unlimited access, on PC starting February 15th, and EA Access and Origin Access Basic members can enjoy up to 10 hours of play time as part of the Play First Trial.
