BioWare’s awful statement. (Destiny)

I’ll admit to being even more disappointed in Anthem after reading that article, as the original pitch for the game sounds so much more interesting. More of a survival style game, going out on missions and having to deal with weather and just survive as long as possible. Sounds way more fun than how that game ended up.

Helldivers was (and still is) exactly this. You grab a few friends, each specialize for whatever role they want, then you drop into a procedurally-generated map against one of three factions to complete a mission. It was tough, but you were only limited by the gear you chose to go in with, and the skill and coordination of your team:

A third/first-person version of that would have been insanely fun.

DE is trying to make something like that with Railjack this year. Here's hoping that's successful.
