BioWare's Anthem Is Multiplayer, But You Can Still Play Solo

Battlefield 5 will feature “unique battles” and new challenges, Anthem to be designed around player input

Electronic Arts reports FY18 financial results

"There were, understandably, some questions and concerns about story in multiplayer", Casey writes about Anhtem.

Per the figures, 18 million players engaged in "competitive gaming" across Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 and Madden NFL 18, up more than 75% year-over-year (yoy). "You create your own character, you decide what happens next, and you become the hero", he said. And while Anthem does have single-player, it's the multiplayer aspect that has left some fans feeling as though those strong elements that make Bioware games so fun and replayable for them.

Every BioWare game should feel like the story is about the player, Hudson said.

Following Jorgensen's comments, EA CEO Andrew Wilson got investors and fans more excited about the game. Stating Anthem would be "an ever-changing multiplayer world", players will be able to "choose to play through the story with only your friends, or even on your own".

Most other estimates have put the Xbox One at around 35 million worldwide, but while you'd think EA would know for sure the lack of any official figures from Microsoft means it's all still speculation. Games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age feature AI companions while games like Star Wars: The Old Republic are all about playing with other real people. And, "I like to be the one making choices in my story-if it's multiplayer, won't the story get watered down?" Despite the crowded fall release calendar containing games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2, the publisher is confident in the Battlefield brand and doesn't appear to be shifting away from its traditional October release window. Later in the year, Laidlaw announced he was leaving BioWare, so it's possible this new game Hudson is teasing was the next Dragon Age, but has since been refocused into something else. Combined, more than 90 million players have played an EA Sports game in this console generation. With microtransactions nearly certainly finding their way into games like Anthem and the upcoming Battlefield title, EA puts less emphasis on total game sales than it did in the past - instead, cultivating a community of players into recurrent spenders now drives revenue.
