Anthem- PS4, Xbox One, PC – February 22

Mass Effect Andromeda was a pretty colossal failure for BioWare, disappointing in both combat and its science-fiction narrative, but the studio has a chance to right its past wrongs with Anthem. A social action-role-playing game similar in structure to Destiny 2 or The Division, Anthem gives players incredible freedom thanks to their “Javelin” suits, which offer the ability to fly, launch storms of rockets, and deal damage to targets up close. More Star Wars than Star Trek, it’s a departure from the nitty-gritty storytelling of BioWare’s past, but it points to a bright and different future for the company.
