Creating an environment

    image.jpeg I wanted to highlight a few aspects within this image from Anthem's E3 trailer. As you know this is the jumping off point (no pun intended) to the wilds. There are a lot of individuals within this area, plus two large caliber guns to either side. Notice the shells on the floor denoting resent activity. A nicely constructed atmospher that creates an impression of a living world. Notice the icon of a skull, a location of a high level enemy or creature in that general direction? The vista gives you a sense of scale of the environment plus this location is part of the world. Not a loading screen. This BioWare team has a track record of creating strong environments. I think they have achieved it in this image.

      Bioware does indeed have that track record. I've played many of their games and this is something I always take note of. I love the scale of this image! It gives you of sense of "lets explore."

        The scope an depth of this new IP and the environment/world that has been created seems to be intentional. Anthem could be a game that develops its own lore. Again this team has a track record of developing a environment/world that is sustainable. If so, there needs to be the development and dedication to the lore of this new environment/world.

          Lore is something that is important. We've already seen a glimpse of some monsters. I wonder if there will be crafting with plants, etc. I hope that they've expanded everything with back stories.
