The official EA Play 2018 live stream will be kicking off very soon. The event will commence with a press conference at 11:00 PM PT / 2:00 PM ET on Saturday, June 9th, where the publisher will show off all of the games it has in store for the coming months.
Anthem is a game with plenty to prove as its the first from Mass Effect and Dragon Age studio Bioware since the critical flop of Mass Effect: Andromeda and a restructuring of the developer's Montreal studio in 2017, but its flashy showing at EA's briefing was a step in the right direction.
Thanks to its strong focus on story, Bioware promised they wanted to keep this a world the players are invested in for years to come. With the lack of reveals that weren't expected, other than the new Star Wars game - which didn't even include an actual reveal - and the Clone Wars expansion for Star Wars Battlefront II, the rest was all sort of just. meh.
When it comes to new details being shared during EA Play, fans are hoping for a few things. You are on a world where the "old gods" left behind their weapons. They also debuted a number of visual Javelin customization options, noting that vanity items, but no gameplay altering items, will be available for purchase as non-loot box micro-transactions. There is no PvP mode and you can play the entire game by yourself, which should please those who get annoyed by Destiny's locked off content. Mark Darrah also seemed to hint that a public beta will occur.

Expect no letup in Halep-Stephens final
There is no-one else I'd rather lose to than the number one in the world", Stephens, who will rise to four in the rankings, said. She broke to grab the second set when Stephens sailed a backhand wide, all part of a seven-game run that made it 5-0 in third.
The game looks to feature four separate classes, Ranger, Colossus, Interceptor, and Storm, which are represented by the Javelin exosuits you can choose from.
Expect EA to go hard on Anthem during their presentation this year, most likely with a lengthy demo. It sounds like more Javelins will be added post launch.
