The gaming industry has proved to be a competitive field, where developers are continuously trying to outwit existing games. Old games are merely toppled by newer releases that outsmart the former by new and improved updates.
BioWare for instance is set to give some tough competition to Bungie and Activision’s Destiny series. BioWare will launch Anthem by the end of this year and is expected to give Destiny 2 some serious competition. The latest development highlights that the game would feature a new update that would truly give it a competitive advantage.
Anthem is a multiplayer game shooting game that is expected to have better and bigger patrol zones/planets found in Destiny. As reported by DailyStar, in an interview with a Reddit user that had direct links with a member of the game’s development team, Technical Design Director Brennon Holmes revealed that “ “We’re taking a different approach (we have different tech) [from Destiny], so our areas are a fair bit larger,” He added that “But there will likely be some loads between some of the areas. We’re still figuring out the exact details on a lot of this stuff.”
Another feature that might go well with the fans is the advent of customized gears. Anthem could include Application Programming Interface (API) which can allow players to customize inventory and loadouts. This feature is likely to make life easier for the fans if compared with Destiny and is likely to attract a larger fan base.
Brennon Holmes further added that the combat of the game looks good as well. He expressed faith in Chris King (Anthem’s lead Gameplay Designer) who has significant experience in game design. While all of the things currently are in favor of Anthem, one thing that ticked off fans was how the game was depicted in E3. The developers themselves pretended to be gamers, leading to concerns that the game was staged. Hopefully BioWare will address these concerns in the coming days.
