Today, BioWare released a new video showing off the secretive end-game content for Anthem. As you can imagine, it contains several types of modes and plenty of challenges for you to complete.
First off, if you played the demo, you probably saw the extra-hard diffiulties. Grandmaster 1, Grandmaster2 and Grandmaster 3 are only available once you’ve reached the level cap (30). The higher the difficulty the better the chances you’ll get rare gear and cosmetic items.
Secondly, these difficulties can be applied while doing multiple objective types in the end-game. These include contracts, challenges and strongholds.
Contracts are missions you can obtain from talking to NPC’s and they improve the rep of your faction. They also unlock new blueprints. Legendary contracts are multi-part missions and, obiviously, grant better rewards.
Challenges are not as complicated and only reward coins and crafting materials. Strongholds are team required missions and have some of the best drops.
There is also free-play or free-roam, where you’ll be able to explore the world. You’ll find cataclysms out in the wild, which are time-limited events (much like Public Events in Destiny). BioWare also mentioned future features like guilds and social hubs, along with “massive world-changing events.”
Anthem appears to be shaping up into something that could easily replace titles similar to it’s genre. EA seems to be betting big on Anthem, as they expect it to sell over 6 million copies in the first month alone.
