What we know about Anthem so far

Anthem is the new project of BioWare and is probably their answer to Destiny 2. It will be an action-adventure game combined with a few RPG characteristics. At E3 in 2017 they said that it is going to be released in Fall 2018 but things changed and they need more time. So the developers moved the release date back to early 2019. This is what is planned as of now maybe they will need even more time nobody can answer that question.

The Story or What it is about

As of now there is little to no detail known about the Story of Anthem and how the planet was settled or how the Cities were built. EA officials stated that BioWare who are known for creating amazing story based games like BioShock will do a good job.

The only thing that we know so far is that there will be magical storms called “Shaper Storms” that will call for you. You will than fly into these storms with several other players to explore new parts of the Anthem story.

Anthem Gameplay

You are playing a Freelancer who is equipped with a powerful exosuite that are badly needed to go outside the wall. Anthem includes several different variations of exosuites but we only know two so far.

Colossus: This is a tanking exosuite who can take lots of damage as weapon a mortar was featured in the latest Anthem trailer.

Ranger: This is the other exosuite we know about. It offers you a jetpack for better mobility and a rocket launcher to attack several targets at once.

The enemies

The game features a broad variety of different enemies that all have different weapons and abilities. Depending on their strength you get rewarded with experience points and gear. Some of your opponents use pure strength to deal damage to you others might be able to use beam or pulse weapons which can cause some critical damage.

We are excited what the first bosses and dungeons will look like as the map looks very realistic as of now.

How to Level up?

Experience is gained through completing missions and taking out enemies. If you combine these two things you can get the most out of it and reach the level cap as fast as possible. Dungeons and Events will also probably be a way to get some additional exp and loot.

So far we expect the maximum level to be at 35 so you should make use of all the above tactics to make the fastest way to this level. Don’t expect to get there too quick as RPG’s are know to be the most time consuming game genre.

Play together with friends

Anthem makes it possible to group up with three friends and play through the game together. This is definitely a great option and will make you have much more fun. As playing with friends is always more fun than it is also so make sure to group up with your mates.

The best games of E3 in 2017

There were many games to test at the E3 and below we have made a short list of the ones that we found the best and most interesting. If you think we missed a game on the list feel free to tell us via the comment section we would like to see what you like to play.

Super Mario Odyssey

The best game will probably be Super Mario Odyssey as it continues the worlds most sold game from all times. In the new Mario game he is able to control other things due to magic powers. It can be anything you can imagine for example a normal human being, an huge T-Rex or a rocket ship. Mario can control all of them using his new Magical Powers and is able to make unimaginable things now. This will be a complete game changer for Super Mario Odyssey compared to other Mario games.

It get’s released on October 27th 2017 so make sure to get your copy if you are a owner of a Nintendo Switch. As this is probably one of the best games to play as a Switch player.

Star Wars Battlefront II also features an amazing campaign where you play as Imperial Commander between the Return of the Jedi and the Awakening of the Sith. The campaign is heavily story driven and will make the one or other Star Wars fan flip out because of they accuracy in detail. By far this is one of the most advanced and best story modes that we have ever sawn. Everyone of you who had fun playing the previous Star Wars games will definitely going to love this.

Further great news are that all post-release content is going to be released completely free including maps, modes and new heroes as well.

anthem game 2017


Seems to be the next big Sci-Fi game hit for consoles including PS4/Xbox One but also for PC. From all the three games Anthem is going to need the longest development time until its being released in early 2019. As Anthem is still in such early stage there is still a lot what we don’t know about. So far it looks already promising and could be the next big game in 2019 so stay tuned for the release of Anthem.

Overwatch is one of the best games to play in 2017

If you like to play Mutliplayer-Ego-Shooters with comic graphics Overwatch will be the perfect choice for you. It features 25 different heroes with unique abilities and weapons. All of them are separated into different types as Tank, Defense, Attack and Support. To make the best experiences with your team you should always have enough characters of each type.

On the defense side you are mostly required to play with two tanks so you goal is it to always stay alive and hold the point or block the lore to not reach the last checkpoint. No matter what you will have to survive to do this so having at least two characters that have higher hp will only help you. Than you should also focus on having good healers in your team like Lucio and Mercy. Ana can also be a powerful healer but you need a better aiming to perform good with her so she’s quite the hardest healer to play.

Play for the objectives not kill:death ratio

This is not like Counter Strike or COD in Overwatch you have to play for the objectives not for the kills. The opponent team can have 10x the kills than your team has if you push the lore even a cm further you are going to win the match. It’s less likely to happen if they would be this superior but it may happen.

Do not just play one hero

It is important that you can play more than just one hero to become a good and successful Overwatch player. The reason behind this is if you join a match and your main hero is already picked you are going to have a bad match. So make sure to always have a plan B in your offhand. It is highly advisable to be able to play three to four champions on a good level. You mustn’t master all of them but you should just be good enough to not cost your team the win if you can not play your main character for whatever reason.

Team setup

Depending on what game mode you are playing you should either setup your team like this 3-1-2 or 2-2-2. If you are playing ranked you should definitely play the 2-2-2 variation as this one is the safest and most played team setup in Overwatch.

Counter your enemy team if you can

Have an eye on the enemy team and focus on countering the strongest of their players. If you switch the character to counter your opponent focus on him and harass him whenever you got a chance to take on him. But only do this if you are used to the character that counters him, do not try to counter someone using a character that you have never played as it will be completely useless.

Play normals to train new champions

Do others a favor and do not play champions that you have absolutely no experience with. If all the champs that you are used to should be picked kindly ask over the voice or text chat if somebody could switch for you. If nobody should respond you have done everything that you could. So just pick the most useful hero if there was no response and try to make the best out of the situation. This may be frustrating but don’t quit the game or go afk because you can not play one of your better picks as leaving may get you banned if you do it too often.
