Anthem

Anthem


Anthem is a 3rd person action role-playing game developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. It was released in 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


Upon an unfinished world, humanity struggles to survive in a savage environment full of diverse threats. Equipped with incredible Javelin exosuits, a faction known as the Freelancers seeks to tip the balance in mankind’s favor.


As a Gameplay Design Lead I was responsible for the player character, camera and controls:

  • Javelins: Lead the 'EXO team' responsible for the 4 unique Javelin exosuits players use.
  • Traversal: Owned and implemented all of the traversal gameplay: flying, swimming, jumping, dashing & ground movement.
  • Cameras: Set up the gameplay camera behaviors including their framing and transitions.
  • Controls: Created and implemented the control scheme and controller rumble for the game.
  • During the game's live service I was given additional responsibility as Lead Combat Designer.
