[E3 2017] Bioware's Next Title is the Cooperative Anthem

about X hours ago from

In what feels like the usual fashion these days, the new Bioware IP was teased at yesterday's EA press conference with the promise of more being shown at this afternoon's Microsoft event. In the midst of all that talk about teraflops and the Xbox One X, Anthem was given its time to shine and we're liking what we are seeing so far.While there are some similarities in the overall action RPG/loot shooter idea that one could draw between Anthem and Bungie's Destiny, the few minutes of gameplay that was shown also had some Mass Effect vibes to it in the way the combat plays out and the overall player mobility (players have jet packs and can boost run). Players will don exosuits - called Javelins - that come in a few different class types, each of which can be customized with abilities and gear of varying degrees of rarity. The "balanced" Ranger and "heavy-hitter" Colossus are specifically mentioned and shown off in the footage, but we also catch a glimpse of another exosuit that seems to be a little more "magical" (for lack of a better descriptor) towards the end. In combat, players appear to have three abilities that are mapped to the bumper buttons in addition to their guns.

[E3 2017] - Rebellion Announces Strange Brigade for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4

Rebellion, developers of the Sniper Elite series, have announced Strange Brigade. The game is a 1930s adventure for one to four players that promises to be full of "peril, intrigue, and good old derring-do." Sounds dapper.From the reveal video and description it sounds like a co-op version of Uncharted or Tombraider, where you'll be hunting treasure in ancient ruins from civilizations long gone. Players will have to survive traps, solve puzzles, and of course shoot creepy creatures. Perhaps the most interesting sounding bit out of the game, other than the unique setting, is the promise of "superhuman powers" available to characters. With four player co-op support, this could prove to be an experience we haven't seen yet with friends. Strange Brigade does not have a release date yet.
