Anthem To be “Emotional Shooter”

by on February 1, 2019

Just how deep will Anthem’s story be? What’s the team got to say on this?

Anthem is the next big release from Bioware, and it’s only a few weeks away from release, so the team are dishing out what they think about the game. Director Jonathan Warner has high praise for its story, telling EDGE Magazine:

“[We might have] the most emotional shooter of our decade,” he told EDGE. “Games you don’t connect with emotionally are not games that you end up talking about years later. To me, that is the delight of making games, because I know that somewhere some young person is going to pick up Anthem and play it, and it is going to be that game for them. It’ll be their game. That’s such an amazing privilege.

“It can sound so pretentious to say, ‘We really want you to emotionally connect to this game.’ I do, but I want it to connect to lots of different people emotionally in different ways – whether it’s a touching story, or a character that you particularly love, or an adventure that you tell your friends about, or whether it’s just that adrenaline rush. It’s all emotional.”
