This is supposed to have a huge impact on all the Anthem fans. Knowing EA and their huge marketing budget, it is certainly going to build a unique hype among the fans. This is not the first time someone approaches this kind of advertisement. It has been done numerous times and other video games have had the honor to receive short films as well. Last released we know is the original The Division video game and its Agent Origins movie. Halo has received one too. Nevertheless, now it’s time for Anthem and we’re looking forward to it.
Anthem is set to release on February 22 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. EA Premium Users can start playing the game 1 week earlier.
