"Anthem" sets its focus on varied environments and trailers show jungle-like areas with different weather effects.

The trailer

The story to a video game can be the most vital to selling copies and the developer understands that, but they plan on tweaking the formula a bit by making it more of a personal story.

The player will have the ability to make choices that will impact them. A recent trailer, called "Our World, My Story," showed some great gameplay of fighting various enemies and exploring the world. There are also said to be a lot of missions to accomplish and exploring the areas for ancient artifacts that could help along the journey. As stated before, decisions the player makes matter significantly and will likewise impact the story.

There is certainly a lot to look forward to, as Microsoft announced close to a week ago that a white Xbox One X is set to arrive in mid-November along with a copy of "Fallout 76."
