Kika och läs på om Ranger, Colossus, Storm och Interceptor.

Om 113 dagar släpps Anthem, ett Biowarespel där det för en gångs skull snackas mer om gameplay snarare än om story. Efter Mass Effect: Andromeda har Bioware mycket att bevisa. I gårdagens snack om vilken studio man skulle vilja ta tillbaka från det döda nämndes Bioware både en, två och tre gånger. Det goda namnet är, med andra ord, inte vad det en gång var.

Det kommer en demo inför releasen (och vi har provspelat Anthem) men i väntan på den får vi nu djupdyka i spelets olika klasser. "Javelin" kallas exoskelettet du bär i spelet och kommer i fyra former; Ranger, Colossus, Storm, Interceptor. Undertill demonstreras de i videoform och allra längst ner hittar du rikligt med info om vapentyper, närstridsattacker, distansfärdigheter, supportutrustning och ultimata förmågor. Kort sagt: det mesta om det mesta.

RANGER

Ranger Javelin Weaponry
Each javelin may have two weapons for their loadout, and can change them (along with the rest of their loadout) between missions. The Ranger is capable of wielding every weapon type except for Heavy Weapons (which can only be used by the Colossus javelin).

Ranger Javelin Melee Ability
Shock Mace: When the Ranger javelin chooses to mix it up at close range, it deploys an electrified mace to send a medically-inadvisable amount of voltage through its enemies.

COLOSSUS

Colossus Javelin Weaponry
Each javelin may have two weapons for their loadout, and can change them (along with the rest of their loadout) between missions. The Colossus cannot use the two smallest weapon types, Pistols and SMGs, but is the only javelin sturdy enough to wield any of the Heavy Weapons.

Colossus Javelin Melee Ability
Heavy Smash: The Colossus can use its massive chassis as a weapon both in a diving smash attack from the air and a hammering melee attack. This not only clears out smaller enemies instantly, but has a chance to knock down foes and leave them open to follow-up attacks.

Colossus Javelin Ultimate Ability
Siege Cannon : Lancers can deploy a special ultimate ability that displays the true strength of their javelin exosuit. The Siege Cannon is ideal for clearing out smaller enemies, controlling enemies in a choke point, or putting some extra damage on a boss.
Note: All names are subjects to change

STORM

Storm Javelin Melee Ability
Every javelin has an innate melee ability which can be used to deal damage to targets at very close range. This ability does not need to be earned, nor can it be changed.
Fiery Strike: The Storm uses the seals on its arm to deliver an explosive flash that deals damage and knocks back enemies that have gotten too close, giving the Storm time to reposition at a safe distance.

Storm Javelin Kinesis Gear Abilities
The seals which are built into the Storm can use various gear to tap into the Anthem to release raw elemental energy in the form of kinesis abilities. Gear is picked up as loot during missions, and can be equipped or swapped out between missions. Lancers can equip three kinesis gear abilities total, one from each of the sections here.
