Anthem combines third-person shooter and action role-playing game elements in a “contiguous open world” shared with up to three other players. Each player takes the role of a Freelancer donning fully customizable exosuits called Javelins.
Anthem features four unique Javelin variants which the player unlocks while progressing through the game. Each Javelin features unique attributes and abilities that encourage different styles of play and evoke classic RPG character archetypes. The Ranger is the Javelin all players begin the game with, and is considered the “all-around master of combat,” the Colossus is the largest, slowest, but most resilient Javelin, and features a large shield to absorb attacks or hit enemies, the Interceptor is the fastest and most agile Javelin, specializing in quick close-quarters melee strikes, and the Storm is the least armored Javelin, but can remain airborne the longest, allowing it to attack from a distance with blasts of elemental energies.
Players can build relationships with various non-playable characters, but they cannot establish romantic relationships with them, as was a trademark of previous BioWare games. The central meeting point of the game takes place in Fort Tarsis, the central stronghold of Anthem. Built by the eponymous General Helena Tarsis, it serves as a fortified settlement against the threats of the outside world and is also the point where the player goes to receive new missions and freelance assignments. It is a melting pot where all the different factions of the game meet, including the Sentinels, Corvus, Cyphers, and Arcanists.
The game features both single-player and co-operative multiplayer elements in a “shared world” that can have up to four squad members per team. Teams can fight savage beasts and ruthless marauders while exploring lost ruins and experiencing massive, world-altering terrain occurrences, such as “Shaper Storms”.
