Anthem Game Ways to Play
There are three main cohesive experiences around which a player’s adventures will cease to exist in the world of Anthem. Exploring the world of Anthem, every Freelancer will create their own distinct way. The three main exploratory ways that Freelancers can use are given as follows:
Missions: Set yourself out on a mission while playing Anthem game. Progress your way by earning experience, finding and collecting loot while playing through the story. You can set out on the mission all by yourself or you can ask your friends to join you. Opening up the mission to the other fellow player can also be done by matchmaking.
Strongholds: Probably the most difficult adventure in the game of Anthem is Strongholds. These are somewhat similar to an underground prison or a Dungeon but they are more challenging than a Dungeon. Strongholds will let you push your skills to the fullest with equally great rewards. Only experienced Freelancers with a complete team squad will be able to take n Strongholds.
Freeplay: Freeplay, as the name suggests, allows the player to select a Javelin in order to explore the world of Anthem games either solely or with a squad. This freeplay mode will help you roam freely in the world of Anthem. This way you can get acquainted with the geography of the Anthem games world. You can also discover any missed out secrets during combat or while searching for gear and crafting materials.
