BioWare's 'Anthem' Teases Stunning Live-Action Short Film by Neill Blomkamp, "Conviction"

We're in the home stretch right before BioWare's new IP Anthem hits shelves and while some players will be able to play early on February 15th thanks to Origin's Premier service, everyone will be able to enjoy this free live-action short-film that explores the history behind the catastrophic world as we know it.

The above clip is just a small teaser with the full video coming online on February 14th, but with Anthem's world being held in a state of survival and coming out of a period of decay, this historical inside look at how the freelancers came to be those we met in the game itself will be paramount to understanding the title's lore.

BioWare has stated numerous times in the past that Anthem will be incredibly rich with lore and when we got to hang out with the team themselves to play some of the content not shown in the demos, we got to see that rich history in action. For those that love BioWare's knack for luring players into an incredible story with heartbreaking historical value, Anthem won't disappoint and the upcoming video short from the cinematic master himself will show exactly that to eager fans.

As for the game itself, Anthem makes its grand debut on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on February 22nd!

We recently had a chance to play even more of the game and interview the team over at BioWare, while getting a chance to check out the endgame content and some of the story missions not available in the demo.
