BioWare’s Anthem is the new upcoming co-op shooter that is a sci-fi RPG game that casts players in the world as Freelancers, who are soldiers equipped with a Javelin. This is a high-tech exosuit that allows flying around the environment completing quests and fighting enemies.
Javelin exosuits have everything a skilled pilot needs to survive in the wilds and take down any opposition. They can fly over difficult terrain, swim through underwater tunnels, and employ a full kit of weapons and gear against their enemies.
Each model of Javelin has its own strengths, and it’s up to each pilot to choose which javelin in their arsenal is best for the mission ahead.
More details have been added by EA over at their website that details the combat gameplay with the javelin exosuit that you can expect in the game: Anthem. In the gameplay, your javelin exosuit is the key to combat. Its incredible mobility and firepower allow a pilot to evade enemies, get into a strategic position, and unleash utter destruction.
Expert pilots use every advantage as they take down enemies with ruthless efficiency. Here the Colossus takes out an enemy at range, only to immediately jump up and fly in for an overhead smash attack to finish off the second target.
Since Anthem is based on a large planet that will require you to fly around to places for combat, EA also adds that on long missions, ammo and health pickups are crucial to survival. Ammo and health pick ups can be obtained by killing a few enemies and looting the items that they drop.
You javelin will also come with cyphers that will help you determine the trajectory of your long range shots. Explosive rounds like grenades, mortars will be highlighted to where they will land, this will help you adjust to the target you want to hit.
Anthem is a co-op game that will require the assistance of your team mates around you to take down enemies. Teamwork is a vital part of javelin combat, and the best way to maximize your damage as a team is to set up your teammates for massive combos. For example, you can use Storm javelin for a electricity attack that can be allowed to deal area damage, and finishing up with a blast from the Colossus.
