IN THE BEGINNING, THE GODS HARNESSED THE ANTHEM, A SOURCE OF PURE CREATION.

WONDEROUS LANDS ERUPTED INTO EXISTENCE.

COLOSSAL BEASTS, CREATURES, AND MONSTERS EMERGED.

BUT BEFORE THEIR WORK WAS COMPLETE, THE GODS VANISHED, LEAVING BEHIND AN UNFINISHED WORLD STREWN WITH THE INSTRUMENTS OF THEIR CREATION.

THE POWER OF THE ANTHEM WOULD NOT BE CONTAINED, UNLEASHING WORLD-ALTERING CATACLYSMS, TRANSFORMING AND CORRUPTING THOSE THAT TRIED TO WIELD ITS POWER.

HUMANITY SOUGHT A WAY TO SURVIVE, SO OUR ANCESTORS CREATED THE JAVELIN EXOSUITS, HANDCRAFTED ARMOR THAT GAVE US SUPERHUMAN ABILITIES.

OUR WORLD REMAINS IN AN ETERNAL STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE POWER OF THE ANTHEM AND THE INSTRUMENTS OF THE GODS WHO FORMED IT.

TODAY, THE FATE OF HUMANITY RESTS IN THE HANDS OF A SMALL BAND OF JAVELIN PILOTS KNOWN AS THE FREELANCERS.

This is beautiful. Thank you lads for this! EA Access in 3 hours and I’m hyped. If anyone here playing on Xbox, DM me your GTs if you want :)

so reviews in 2 hours or so, right?
There's no date listed for when the review embargo lifts on OpenCritic. That's always encouraging... right?

(tried the beta, this will be a hard pass for me - but I still wish it does at least decently, so EA doesn't gut BioWare completely)

I have a feeling it will fail hard, and a part of me hopes it fails then the game will be 30 euros in a month and then Ill buy it and then the game blossoms. But if it fails too hard, ill never see another Mass Effect :( and shit about the reviews, didn't they get the game at least a week earlier so ppl can know if bioware will exist anymore ...

Do you guys know which Javelin you're going to main? I went in the demo fully expecting to play storm or interceptor but after it I decided to stick with the good old ranger!
Anyway it's nice we can play all 4 without needing multiple characters.

Might get this during a sale. I didn't see enough story there to convince me to buy the game, and I'm not willing to waste my time in looter shooters. The demo was definitely fun though, bar the technical issues.

Ranger most likely. Maybe colossus.

Storm for sure, Interceptor, then back to Ranger, finally the Colossus if the game REALLY sucks me into grinding.....but it would be nice to have some missions that lean toward one of the Javelin types to give you a reason to explore them/keep you in decent gear for the ones you seldom use.

I remember reading somewhere that you can get loot for any javelin at any time however the loot table percentage are increased for the javelin currently in use.
So you can deifnitely keep the other javelin in good shape even grinding with another.

Kind of did the same thing. I was pretty confident in the Colossus but now I'm leaning toward Ranger.

I missed out on the Beta but this now has me strangely interested, having had no interest in destiny etc. I loved the Mass Effect games and hope this does well, if reviews are positive may need to seriously consider a purchase.

And of course servers are already fucked. Can't get in. Servers unavailable. Server has shutdown. Why can't we have a smooth launch for a change?
