Anthem 2.0 is in the process of trying to fix Anthem’s disastrous launch, but it may be missing a vital feature that could help the game.
BioWare’s Anthem encountered such a controversial release that the developer is now working to reinvent and change the game’s core game. Anthem has been praised for its graphics, but it otherwise fell short for most gamers. Primarily created under pressure from “BioWare Magic,” Anthem may have created a drastic change in how BioWare works, though to what extent remains to be seen.
The major revision that could save Anthem, dubbed Anthem 2.0 or Anthem Next, is still in the works, despite being announced nearly a year ago. The BioWare blog has been constantly updated with the changes players can see in Anthem, but it still seems like the full update is a long way off. However, one thing that is missing is one of BioWare’s most popular features: romance.
Anthem Single Player Campaign Plot
When players can get Anthem to work properly, there’s no denying it’s an impressive game outside of the mediocre elements of looters and shooter. The Javelins’ flight mechanics are one of the most impressive to date, and the environment of the Nameless Planet is beautiful. However, many gamers thought that the overall plot was not memorable, especially compared to other BioWare games.
In Anthem’s single-player campaign, players control an unnamed Freelancer who starts the game as someone who joins the Freelancer group established for their first mission; this works well because both the character and the player are getting familiar with the mechanics of Javelin. After tragedy strikes the group and raises questions from the public about whether the freelancers can really do their job, the game moves to two years later, when the player character has settled in Fort Tarsis and earns freelance income through salary.
Anthem’s main antagonist is known as the Moni tor, and his main goal is to reach the Cenotaph before the player and his team. Players work alongside characters named Tassyn, Faye, Haluk, and Owen, forming a team to try to disable the Cenotaph. As the story progresses, bonds are formed and broken between the player and characters, but the general public found the plot of Anthem’s dominant story to be flawed, disjointed, and repetitive.
How romance could help Anthem 2.0
It’s safe to say that if the mechanics of the game are heavily overhauled, the story could get the same treatment. Clarifying the overall plot by adding additional details could serve the story well, make it flow better, and correct the disjointed nature that many players felt it had. That’s if the story doesn’t completely change, and BioWare’s iconic companions and romance could improve both.
BioWare is known for having some of the best romance stories in the RPG category. The developer could use this to their advantage and add romance stories with existing or newly introduced characters in Anthem 2.0. This would not only increase the immersion of the game, but would also make players feel more committed to saving the nameless planet. Players who feel connected to the characters in a game is one of the most important aspects of video games; Anthem 2.0 should take this into account when it is finally released.
Correcting the story and adding an immersive romantic story will help players feel more connected to Anthem as a whole, which, when combined with recently improved gameplay mechanics, could bode well for the future of the game. Anthem was an ambitious project for BioWare to take on, as it is a shooter and looter game and not your traditional RPG style, but taking advantage of the elements that the developer is known for could keep Anthem afloat, rather than fall from it. sky like overheating.

Anthem is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
