Anthem is a social, connected action-RPG focused on co-operative multiplayer for up to four players. Set on an unfinished world, abandoned by the Gods, players must wear powerful Javelin exosuits to survive. Teaming up they must face the dangerous and ever-changing world through exploration and combat.
The VIP demo is designed to give players a taste of everything the game will have to offer at launch on February 22nd. Players will begin the demo at level 10 and the rewards and economy have been adjusted to allow players to see and do more in the short timeframe.
