Anthem For PS4 Is Almost $10 Off At Amazon Now
Well, that didn't take long.
Bioware's new loot-shooter, Anthem, released on February 22 after a week-long period of early access, but just five days later, the game's PS4 version has had a price drop on Amazon, where it's available for $52 instead of $60. (Update: The PS4 price has dropped again to $51, and the Xbox One price is now $59.)
So far, Anthem is still listed at $60 on other retailer's sites.
In Anthem, you team up with three other players in online co-op to defeat enemies, and each member of your squad will have different offensive and defensive abilities based on which javelin suit they choose. Anthem really sets itself apart from similar shooters like Destiny or The Division with its flying mechanic, which allows you to soar through the air as you fight. You're also able to switch between various classes more quickly thanks to your suit-shifting character, a pilot known as a "Freelancer."
The game has received mixed reviews from critics, many of whom expressed frustration at its lackluster story and gameplay that feels unfinished. GameSpot gave the game a 6/10 in our Anthem review. "Anthem has good ideas, but it struggles significantly with the execution," wrote reviews editor Kallie Plagge. "It's a co-op game that works best with no one talking; it buries genuinely interesting character moments and puts its most incomprehensible story bits at the forefront; its combat is exciting until you get to the boss fights and find your wings have been clipped."
