    I thought it would be a good idea to compile all the information we know about the game so far in one place. :)

    What is Anthem?
    Anthem is a shared-world action-RPG, you and your friends are Freelancers—the bold few with the courage to leave civilization behind, explore a landscape of primeval beauty, and confront the dangers you find.

    What platforms will Anthem be available on?
    Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC
    What is the release date?
    Exact release date is currently unknown, but we know it will fall into Fall of 2018.
    About the Game
    How is the game played?
    Gameplay revolves around players wearing an exo-suit that players control. There are multiple types of exo-suits which allow for varied play styles. Right now, the only exo-suits we know of are dedicated to taking damage (tank), supporting allies, and damage (DPS).

    In the "Hub Area" the player plays in first-person perspective. When you go beyond the wall, you'll be switched to third-person perspective.
    Solo or Multiplayer?
    Anthem is a multiplayer based game. You can team with friends of four, but you can also complete the game solo. It features drop-in, drop-out Co-op, allowing your friends to hop in at anytime.

    It is unknown whether or not Anthem will include any type of Player vs Player combat.
    What type of game is it?
    Anthem is an multiplayer open-world shooter. It looks like there is a central hub where players can obtain quests and socialize, but there are also several other smaller locations. Quests an appear while exploring and discovering new locations: this indicated that the map may not be complete from the start of the game, which would encourage exploration.

    A type of event appeared in the gameplay trailor called a "Shaper Storm." At the end of the game play trailor, the 4 players can be seen jumping into it. It is currently unknown what these "Shaper Storms" are for.
    What is the story?
    The story is currently unknown, but it appears to be centered around a post-apocalyptic world. We were shown a wall like structure which protects us from outside threads. We do know that Anthem will take place on alien planet.
    Official Synopsis
    This is the official synopsis from the official Anthem website.
