BioWare continues to update, support, and evolve Anthem, the 2019 online looter-shooter published by EA. BioWare Austin studio director Christian Dailey posted a new blog post today that covers the changes coming to Anthem’s loot and equipment systems–and they sound quite significant.
For loot, Dailey acknowledged that BioWare “fell short” in creating a loot system for Anthem that was deep and engaging enough. In response, BioWare recognized it needed to basically start over and build a new system “from the ground up.”
The new loot system in Anthem aims to “respect your time,” “embrace choice,” “create a rewarding loot experience,” and “keep it accessible and immediate,” among others.
