Anthem was the final game that was showcased at Microsoft’s E3 2017 conference. It looked absolutely gorgeous on screen and since it was powered by Frostbite Engine, some people were in doubt that it was actually running on the Xbox One X hardware.
EA’s Patrick Soderlund has confirmed to Digital Foundry that Anthem was running in real-time on actual Xbox One X hardware. Digital Foundry then took their own technical analysis of the demo and confirmed that it runs at 2160p checkerboarding resolution which is something that has been used with Frostbite Engine games on consoles. They state that given the resolution, it is possible the game was running on Xbox One X.
Anthem is an open world seamless online third person shooter from Bioware. It has been in development for a while now and it is powered by the same Frostbite Engine that was used for Mass Effect: Andromeda. The developers haven’t shared any major details from the game aside from giving a release window of 2018.
Anthem is confirmed for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One and will be published by EA. It is the next major franchise by EA that aims to get the same exposure as Destiny with its seamless open world and multiplayer experience.
