Anthem is an open world action role-playing game from BioWare and Electronic Arts where you step into the role of a sci-fi explorer known as a Freelancer. Freelancers are intrepid men and women who have the skill and courage to leave the known world behind to go explore a primeval and unknown land. Unknown dangers await, but so does the promise of discover, the excitement of exploration. To help you, you have a customizable exosuit known as a Javelins, and different types of exosuits will help you in specific tasks. The world is vast, constantly changing, and dangerous. Now, go explore it.
