The highly anticipated action-RPG will arrive on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on February 22, 2019.

The press conference promises "gameplay reveals", "big announcements", and "some of the biggest content creators in gaming". Apparently not, alas. Game Informer reports that BioWare's Anthem will feature zero smooching. Thee will still be cosmetic DLC, but zero play to win. Some mysterious culture basically up and left the world that Anthem takes place on. The studio also confirmed that whatever interactions players will have with NPCs in zones like Fort Tarsis, those will not include any romances, breaking from the traditions established in the likes of Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Not only did they show off a bit of new gameplay but we also got the release date as well.

Much of the EA Play press conference revolved around expected announcements for the EA Sports line, including new entries in Madden, NBA Live, and Federation Internationale de Football Association coming this fall-but with one surprise. Players who are members of the EA Access or Origin Access will get to jump onto the game on the 11th October for a Play First Trial.
