EA Details Four ‘Anthem’ Javelins

Electronic Arts detailed a slew of new exosuit Javelins and a new mission called Lost Arcanist for “Anthem” during a Paris Games Week briefing earlier this week.

Anthem” is EA’s upcoming third-person shooter, action role-playing game that features four different exosuits and a “contiguous open world” that can be played in with three other players.

The Javelins are advanced mechanic armor built to help humanity survive and protect themselves in the dangerous world of “Anthem.”

The suits shown off in Paris were the Ranger, Colossus, Storm, and Interceptor. Each of the suits have a special melee ability, grenades, launcher gear, support gear, and an ultimate ability. The suits also have two weapon slots that can be changed between missions.


Ranger

Ranger Javelin Melee Ability
Shock Mace: When the Ranger javelin chooses to mix it up at close range, it deploys an electrified mace to send a medically-inadvisable amount of voltage through its enemies.

Colossus

Colossus Javelin Melee Ability
Heavy Smash: The Colossus can use its massive chassis as a weapon both in a diving smash attack from the air and a hammering melee attack. This not only clears out smaller enemies instantly, but has a chance to knock down foes and leave them open to follow-up attacks.

Storm

Storm Javelin Melee Ability
Every javelin has an innate melee ability which can be used to deal damage to targets at very close range. This ability does not need to be earned, nor can it be changed.
Fiery Strike: The Storm uses the seals on its arm to deliver an explosive flash that deals damage and knocks back enemies that have gotten too close, giving the Storm time to reposition at a safe distance.
Storm Javelin Kinesis Gear Abilities
The seals which are built into the Storm can use various gear to tap into the Anthem to release raw elemental energy in the form of kinesis abilities. Gear is picked up as loot during missions, and can be equipped or swapped out between missions. Lancers can equip three kinesis gear abilities total, one from each of the sections here.

Storm Javelin Blast Seals

Interceptor

Interceptor Javelin Exosuit Melee Ability
Every javelin has an innate melee ability which can be used to deal damage to targets at very close range. This ability does not need to be earned, nor can it be changed.
