The first time we got a glimpse of Anthem was at last year's E3. The announcement/reveal of the title was an important moment for BioWare after everything it had gone through the past few months with Mass Effect: Andromeda. What was teased then certainly sounded promising, and it was hard not to draw some comparisons between it Destiny. Since then, however, things have been relatively quiet.

Anthem is Jetpacking Its Way into 2019Jason Love

This news comes quickly on the heels of a report from Kotaku that, according to sources familiar with the project, the original fall 2018 window that was given during E3 was "never realistic," and that EA won't let the game slide any further into 2019 than March at the latest (end of the fiscal year).

While there are some similarities in the overall action RPG/loot shooter idea that one could draw between Anthem and Bungie's Destiny, the few minutes of gameplay that was shown also had some Mass Effect vibes to it in the way the combat plays out and the overall player mobility (players have jet packs and can boost run). Players will don exosuits - called Javelins - that come in a few different class types, each of which can be customized with abilities and gear of varying degrees of rarity. The "balanced" Ranger and "heavy-hitter" Colossus are specifically mentioned and shown off in the footage, but we also catch a glimpse of another exosuit that seems to be a little more "magical" (for lack of a better descriptor) towards the end. In combat, players appear to have three abilities that are mapped to the bumper buttons in addition to their guns.
