Over on BioWare’s official blog, BioWare general manager Casey Hudson gave updates regarding the studio’s recent showings of Anthem at E3 2018, and shared a bit more of what to expect from the game in the coming future.

Hudson explained that BioWare will be hosting a panel at PAX West that will specifically address fan questions and details on Anthem‘s storytelling and approach to narrative, which he said that the studio is calling “Our World, My Story.” PAX West will be taking place in Seattle, WA from August 31st through September 3rd, 2018.

As storytelling and characters have been among the most asked questions from fans, Hudson explained that the panel will shed some more light on how Anthem will blend a multiplayer-focused gameplay experience with a more intimate single-player narrative in its world, which Hudson said is “one of the most innovative things” about the game in regard to its design between storytelling and gameplay.

In addition to the updates about Anthem, Hudson also gave a bit more insight into some of BioWare’s other properties, notably Dragon Age and Mass Effect. As Hudson said that the studio hears fan interest “loud and clear” in regard to new projects from these series, Hudson said that fans can “rest assured that we have some teams hidden away working on some secret stuff” in regard to both of these franchises, though no more specific details will be announced “for a little while.”

Alongside those titles, Hudson also expressed that the studio’s team for Star Wars: The Old Republic is also “hard at work on some amazing plans for the coming year,” with Hudson specifically adding that those plans will include “new features and surprises that I think makes it the game’s most exciting year yet.”

Anthem will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on February 22nd, 2019. If you have yet to pre-order the game yet, you can head over to Amazon and grab the game now before its release early next year.
