Maybe after this game turns out to be really really good in 9 months y'all can scroll back to this post and be like "Sho Nuff is a real motherfucker"

The balance is supposedly different in the actual game, so as to not fuck over people soloing it. The demo feels great when you have a good squad... with mics on.

Kept pressing Quick Launch on the map screen while highlighting where I was told to go.... Nothing was happening.. Uninstalled.  Not sure why I wasted my time again knowing I'm not going to get this at launch.

finally got the game to work...by playing it on xbox. :doge ran through a few missions and its kinda fun, shooting feels good but still a bit stiff but it feels better once you loot some better gear. there's some customization in it too, i was able to make a decent looking Raider mech

Can't believe EA send Anthem to die. After they send Mass Effect: Andromeda to die.
They could've just sat on the game for a few months to not launch it at the same time as Apex Legends.

I think they're thinking it's two separate markets.

Black Ops IIII couldn't prove there's multiple markets in the BR/FPS split because it was the same game.

They mentioned they are working on Dragon Age 4 at the game awards.

Edit: Unless you're looking for more like Dragon Age Origins. Then it's probably better to look at Obsidian, Inxile or Larian's output.
