Anthem: BioWare's Big Gamble

With Anthem's impending release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, we explore the pitfalls of the "games-as-service" genre, and the risks of BioWare's new loot shooter.

Anthem's full release is right around the corner, and with it, BioWare's next chance to prove it still has a place in the modern video game landscape.

In the video above, Mike Mahardy explores the many pitfalls Anthem faces, the dangers of making games-as-service, and the competition The Division 2 poses when it releases in March. With so many lifestyle games still going strong, BioWare has its work cut out for it with a game that relies on player loyalty to survive.

Anthem releases Feb. 22 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Stay tuned to GameSpot throughout the coming months for more news, features, and videos about BioWare's loot shooter.
