Anthem’s End-Game Leaves Room For Future Content, According To Executive Producer
A lot of information was uncovered at this year’s E3 event. During the EA Play presentation, quite a few details were revealed of Bioware’s upcoming shared-world shooter, Anthem. In response to the abounding questions from fans executive producer, Mark Darrah, stepped up to bat to answer fans on social media, unearthing even more interesting information about the title. According to Darrah, the game is fairly open-ended, which allows for the developers to add in content as they see fit. In response to fan inquiry, here’s what he had to say:
One of the great thing about a world that was left unfinished by its gods is that it opens the door to us changing things that affect the fundamental way you play the game https://t.co/qJhoh5VZNh

Darrah adds, “The main story has a climax and a conclusion, but the game continues after that.” While he doesn’t mention whether or not gear will be fixed or if there’s potential to upgrade, he does mention that there will be a progression system.
“We want to make sure we present the whole loot and progression system at once so everything clicks together,” said the executive producer. As a matter of fact, kill and loot stealing won’t be a problem either. Darrah also mentioned that the game will be massive; so big, in fact, that it’s nearly impossible to compare to other in their franchise vault. While BioWare isn’t yet ready to talk about end-game content, there will be plenty of challenging in-game play waiting, some of which will require chat. While there may not be PvP at the game’s launch, there may be some form of multiplayer down the road.
There will be challenging endgame mechanics. We aren’t talking about those yet.
Some of those may require chat. https://t.co/w4NuVo8cMN
