First Week: Anthem

Anthem is a looter shooter that combines the third person shooter experience with the action role playing experience, to varying degrees of success.

You play a Freelancer, a sort of mercenary that pilots a Javelin, a suit of power armor that allows you to fly and battle the dangers of Bastion, and the factions that would try to harness the Anthem for themselves.
