'Anthem' Gets New Gameplay Trailer From CES, Meaty PC Specifications

We're not to far off from the release of BioWare's long-awaited Anthem, though we'll be able to play it sooner thanks to its forthcoming beta. And the Consumer Electronics Show became the home for the game's latest trailer this week, as NVIDIA teamed up with Electronic Arts to premiere a new clip, packing some dazzling gameplay footage.

In the trailer, which you can see above, we get a good idea of how remarkable the PC version of the game will look, with tranquil environments that pop to life, both indoors and outdoors. We also get a good idea of just how much of the world we'll be able to explore, traveling at a fast pace in your Javelin suit. There's also a quick peek at the skirmishes you'll get into against both organic and robotic enemies.

There's also a small hint at story, as you'll uncover mysterious relics that could tie in more with the universe that you'll travel through.

Speaking of the PC version of Anthem, the minimum and recommended system requirements have been revealed by the publisher. As expected, the newly introduced NVIDIA RTX 2060 is the most recommended. Not to mention that those that purchase this upgrade could get Anthem free of charge.
