BioWare have revealed Anthem – previously known as Project Dylan. It’s meant to be their answer to the MMO-lite, hobby-game genre that Destiny, The Division, and others have all spent time fighting over but what we’ve seen of it gives no hints. See that below.

We still don’t know much about it, other than that it’ll feature a city under siege, penned in by a wall. Outside the wall are monsters. You’ll be playing as a mech-suit-clad hero who heads out into the wastes to murder those monsters – videogames? Videogames.
Here’s the teaser:
