“Science-fantasy.”

Anthem is a very different game from what we’ve become used to seeing by RPG-developers BioWare. It’s a shared world experience, so obviously people have been concerned about the fact that maybe there won’t be much of a focus on the story and characters. BioWare, however, have claimed several times that that won’t be the case.

Recently, in an interview with CBC Radio, BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn spoke about the game’s story and setting, likening it to Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, saying that while Mass Effect was a more grounded science fiction story, Anthem is more of “science-fantasy”.

“The story is that you are part of humanity, and you’re a member of a group called the “Freelancers”, who are out there to protect and save humanity on an alien planet far away,” Flynn said. “t’s in a genre we call “science-fantasy”, it’s very much like Star Wars, very much like the Marvel universe where you see a lot of amazing things happening but we don’t worry too much about why they’re happening or how they’re happening, the science of it. Mass Effect is more of a real hardcore science-fiction IP, this one is much more about just having fun in a game world that is lush and exotic and really sucks you in.”

That definitely sounds interesting, though it remains to be seen just how much of a focus the story and storytelling aspects will really be in the game. Anthem is due out next year for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for continued coverage on the game.
