While the action role-playing title will include options for players to pay for cosmetic and vanity enhancements for Javelin suits, the message was clear at the conference that there will be "no ability to spend money on player advantage at all". The event will commence with a press conference at 11:00 PM PT / 2:00 PM ET on Saturday, June 9th, where the publisher will show off all of the games it has in store for the coming months.

One of EA's most anticipated games got its fair share of time in the spotlight today during its EA Play conference, with the publisher dedicating nearly 20 minutes to a deep-dive into the mechanics and gameplay of Anthem. The name of the title is derived from the game's morally grey force called "the Anthem of Creation". The game was meant to be a dynamic, living world game that could allow for you to have friends drop in and drop out of the story you experience. We already know that EA is going to have a big reveal for Battlefield 5 there, and there's a chance that a Skate 4 announcement might be squeezed in as well.

EA Play has typically given fans several new trailers for their upcoming games, most notably Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 and other sports titles. According to EA, there will be no loot boxes, similar to Battlefield V's lack of them.

Anthem is now targeting a February 22, 2019 release.

Origin Access Premier was unveiled, a more expensive, fancy version of Origin Access that'll give PC players access to all of EA's games as soon as they're released. You can can change gear and weapons on Javelin, and also customised the paint jobs and geometry of the suit.

"It's what we called "our would your story", explains Casey, "This is a living shared world, where everyone is playing together but when you finish the mission you come back to the base, which is a single player area and this is where your story really lives and breathes". It sounds like more Javelins will be added post launch.
