Anthem: Is Anthem Open World?

Anthem, one of the most anticipated titles of this year is now available. Those who are wondering if Anthem comes with an open world map, this article has all the answers you need.

The title is a third-person shooter, Action RPG that only supports online play. Moreover, Anthem has an ever-changing map that will develop and expand over time introducing new challenges. Basically, it’s an unfinished world and the developer have confirmed that they will be adding to the game over the course of time.

It will definitely be an exciting experience to explore the map during missions with your Freelancer squad but it does raise the question that does Anthem have Open World map? Read on to find out.

Does Anthem have an Open World map?

In simple words, yes the map of Anthem is indeed Open Word. However, the lead producer for Anthem and previously the producer for Mass Effect Andromeda, Mike Gamble stated at an EA play event that “Once you’re in the open world, you just run around the open world. There are no load [screens]. Everything’s contiguous. You have access to the whole thing.” Basically, after choosing Free Play from Fort Travis which is the Hub area, you will be completely free from any kind of side quests or loading screen. You can roam around completely free on the entire map of the game. But, it’s important to add that almost all missions are started from Fort Travis and you will see a loading screen when switching between Open World and Fort Travis.

Should you explore the Open World?

Although, it is exciting for people to leave the main story behind and explore the Open World map freely. Yet, we would recommend that the players start with the Anthem Campaign first. Playing the missions will help you understand the map better before you aimlessly set out to explore the map.
