Elsewhere, Darrah confirmed that Anthem will require an internet connection to play even if you're looking to go solo. Community response to EA's decision resulted in the publisher backtracking on the extent to which additional paid add-ons would affect the player's experience in "Battlefront II" and future titles. Be sure to check it out and then let us know your own thoughts on Anthem, Battlefield V, and EA's showing as a whole at the bottom of the page. The highly anticipated action-RPG will arrive on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on February 22, 2019. Apparently not, alas. Game Informer reports that BioWare's Anthem will feature zero smooching.

To stop them you'll be able to take control of one of four Javelin power armors.

This year, fans can expect some big game announcements at EA Play, as EA has already announced several massive games set to be released at the end of 2018. Bioware are a beloved developer but their last project, Mass Effect Andromeda, wasn't successful or popular, and new mechanics in Anthem like a multiplayer open world haven't gone down very well. While no footage was shown, the idea of a battle royale mode made by Battlefield developer DICE was exciting enough to elicit a cacophony of cheers from the conference room.

Tropical Storm Bud grows off Mexico's Pacific coast
The first hurricane, and the first major hurricane, of 2018 has formed (a major hurricane is considered a Category 3 or higher). With strengthening, Bud is expected to become a hurricane late Sunday or early Monday.

Since other players will only ever see you decked out in your mecha armor, you'll obviously want to make it as rad as possible.

Thanks to a world ravaged by natural disasters, players will have to traverse Anthem's world in Iron-Man-esque suits known as javelins.

Battlefield 5 will be another big game featured during EA Play, whiel Respawn Entertainment have also teased that one of their new projects will be teased during the show. They have taken a step back, overhauled the progression and changed all loot boxes to cosmetic items only, adding a new hunt mode which has been hugely popular so far, and are now in the process of updating the squad system to improve they way the game is played. Those who grab the Legion of Dawn Edition of Anthem will get a full set of Legion of Dawn Armor Packs, a Ranger Javelin gear attachment, the soundtrack, and "more". Essentially, BioWare's goal is to get Anthem players playing together and the implication is that having NPC squadmates would take something away from that sort of experience.
