Looks good, Bioware really need to redeem themselves after the disappointing DA Inquisition and the complete train-wreck which was ME Andromeda.

You could almost switch the logo at the end of the trailer and it would serve as an announcement of a Destiny DLC. They need to show more than dudes in armoured suits to get me to pay more than cursory attention.

People in futuristic armour on a ruined planet sheltering behind a massive wall.

I don't think it's a Microsoft exclusive.

EA already have Titanfall, everything points towards a Destiny clone.

Isn't that Destiny, but in a tower and city instead of behind a wall?

That could be describing Mass Effect.

I'm guessing it's bro-y because it's not high fantasy bollocks?

I think the fact that there have been at least 4 different games mentioned already in here shows exactly how derivative this first look, well. Looks.

I immediately thought of Destiny, crossed with Horizon: Zero Dawn and Far Cry. They couldn't have made the armour look more generic if they'd tried and the set-up is as old as the metaphorical hills. Bioware have a shitload riding on this game, and this is not a good first step.

From yesterdays article about Project Dylan (Anthem) -

"We are very pleased with the progress of our new action IP from BioWare," EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in a call with financial analysts back in May. "The design is stunning, gameplay mechanics are excellent and the action will be exhilarating. The game is built around a live service, and through our creative process, we've decided to add more to the disruptive new social designs for our players. To accommodate that, we are moving the launch date for this project into fiscal year '19."

"Dylan is, from what I understand, a sci-fi themed game, it is sort of Destiny-style, takes some elements from The Division, it has like MMO elements," Robertson said. "Someone described it as a 'semi-MMO'. I don't know much more than that... it is a huge scale project, perhaps the biggest BioWare has ever done. It's bigger than Mass Effect Andromeda, considerably so. It will have co-op."

Yeah, there's too little info. As it's Bioware it will be an (action) RPG - with a truth about the world that has to be discovered.

It really does looks like Bioware are placing all their eggs in this basket, so why oh why would they do a Sci-Fi The Division? Sounds like commercial suicide.

We shall see.

I don't see why, sci-fi seems popular and the division was a big success.
