BioWare’s upcoming online action RPG Anthem has certainly captured the attention of many after its latest presentation at EA Play in Los Angeles, and Executive Producer Mark Darrah is continuing to provide answers and interesting information on Twitter.

If you’re curious about what he shared today, you can check out a handy summary below.

  • The game will have voice-overs in English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian. Subtitles will be in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Brazillian Portuguese, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Korean. There are currently no plans for Arabic, but there have been requests for it. Supported languages are not decided by BioWare.
  • Matchmaking can be used for all activities in the game.
  • Items above a certain rarity tier simply appear back at the base at the end of the mission and don’t need to be looted manually.
  • If you leave a Stronghold mission early, “usually” you get rewards up until the point where you left, but you won’t get the “sweet end loot.”
  • When you play solo, you won’t have AI support.
  • The demo of the game at EA Play was running at 4K resolution and 60 frames-per-second on PC rigs sporting two 1080ti video cards each. Developers will continue to optimize the game until release.
  • There will be a level cap in the game, and it will change over time as the service progresses. More details will be provided on this over time.
  • Each Javelin has a different form of damage mitigation. The Colossus has a shield.
  • A new game plus wouldn’t be relevant to the game’s style.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
