EA Announces Live-action Anthem Short

EA has apparently teamed up with director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie) to produce an original live-action short film based on BioWare’s Anthem. Called Conviction, the film will feature a story set decades before the beginning of the game.

“I was really blown away by this incredible world BioWare created the very first time I saw Anthem,” said Neill Blomkamp. “Conviction sets the stage with a narrative that touches on Anthem’s beautiful and immersive world, which is ripe for exploration by these powerful Javelins. A world where danger is lurking on every ledge and in each valley.”

Conviction will show the city of Fort Tarsis (the hub area in the game) come to be. It’ll also show heroic freelancers going up against the head of Dominion – and evil faction in Anthem’s world – the Monitor. Check out the teaser below to get a sneak peek.

The full short will be released on the Oats Studios YouTube channel on February 14th. Anthem, the game, will be released on the following day. Feel free to check back here as we continue to cover this highly anticipated game!
