We'll be live blogging EA Play in about a half hour and will keep eagle eyes out to see if the leak is true!

Anthem closed out this year's EA Play press conference with extensive details on the project's single-player credentials, world building, and story being revealed. It is planned to be their biggest and most immersive Battlefield game yet.

Anthem also marks the return of Casey Hudson, formerly the director of the Mass Effect trilogy, to Bioware, and his imprint seems to be evident on the game's development. We already know that EA is going to have a big reveal for Battlefield 5 there, and there's a chance that a Skate 4 announcement might be squeezed in as well.

The story features players living in a world that is unfinished. While the game looked gorgeous in its new trailer, EA recently released a new set of screenshots for the game that further highlights the attractive graphics.

The decision to move away from "pay-for-power" advantages comes with a backstory for the publisher, which was highly criticized after revealing the extent of microtransactions in "Star Wars: Battlefront II" past year. The world is shared when out in the open with other players. When it releases, Anthem will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC. These exosuits, called Javelins, will be available in four different varieties suited to different playstyles, and users will be able to cycle between them at will. The Ranger is a general suit for up close and personal combat, the Colossus is heavier and has big weapons, and there is also the Interceptor and the Storm.

BioWare has confirmed "no loot boxes" and "no ability to pay for power" within Anthem's wholly-cosmetic DLC model, but the dev didn't make clear exactly what kind of season pass or DLC chapter content might be sold for the game at a later time.

Lead writer Cathleen Rootsart said the game was "designed so they could add more storylines" - describing how they wanted to build a game which changes every time you play.
