E3 2018 is approaching quickly, and ahead of the big event, BioWare continues to drop more teases for its mysterious new IP, Anthem. Following a cryptic tweet posted earlier this week, the studio has shared a new piece of key art for the game, as well as a brief clip that reveals when fans can expect to see its next trailer.
The clip, which you can watch below, was shared on Twitter. It only lasts for six seconds and doesn’t provide a look at any gameplay, but it establishes the tone of the game. “There is something waiting for us beyond the wall…” the accompanying tweet reads, while the narrator of the clip says, “Something is out there… It wants to destroy us all.”
The clip ends with with a tease for the game’s next trailer, which will be shared on June 9–the day of publisher EA’s big pre-E3 event, EA Play. The event is scheduled to begin at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 7 PM BST and will shed some more light on BioWare’s enigmatic action-RPG, along with other major upcoming titles from EA, such as the recently revealed Battlefield V and this year’s Madden game, Madden NFL 19.
In addition to the clip, BioWare shared new key art for Anthem, which you can see below. This follows recent activity on the game’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, both of which have lain dormant since last year. Studio boss Casey Hudson also confirmed on Twitter that BioWare will talk more about the game during EA Play and even answer some fan questions live on stage.
Anthem was first announced during last year’s E3 and was originally planned to launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018; however, EA recently confirmed that the game is now slated to release on the aforementioned platforms in early 2019. The publisher didn’t elaborate on why Anthem was pushed back into next year, but it asserted that this isn’t actually a delay.
Despite being revealed nearly a year ago, we still know very little about Anthem. It’s a Destiny-esque cooperative action game with a heavy emphasis on multiplayer, although BioWare says the game will still be playable solo.
