Anthem Vs The Division 2: Which MMORPG is Better?
Two of the biggest videogame publishers are bringing out their big guns early this year in the form of shared world shooters, in other words there answer to Bungie's Destiny.
Bioware's Anthem is out on 22 February and Ubisoft's The Division 2 on 15 March 2019.
But do you really have the time to indulge in two service-based titles with an endless amount of contents? Probably not. After spending some time with both the game, let me analyse the most important attributes the games have to offer and which suits you more.
The 4 attributes which will be discussed in detail are-
Story/Universe, Gameplay, End Game, Risk Factor.
Without wasting any more time let's just get right into it.
Bioware's Anthem features a vast open world Sci-fi environment which is quite different from the Mass Effect series.
Aside from exploring Fort Tarsis-the hub place of the game where you can talk to different NPCs and get missions, the open world of Anthem is drop dead gorgeous to look at.
The dynamic weather system and the overall verticality the game provides make it tempting to explore its open environments.
On the same time, talking to NPCs in Fort Tarsis reflects a shadow of Bioware's incredible history when it comes to storytelling.
In short, both the lore(including the characters) as well as the open environments looks super interesting and is begging to be explored.
Seems like Bioware really did go all the way for this game.
The Division 2
The world of The Division 2 is not as enticing as Anthem. This is also because Anthem offers something completely new and fresh but even if we don't count that, The Division 2's world still looks very uninspiring to look at, whether it be visually or the level design.
In fact, most of the buildings and the locales lost vastly similar to the original The Division's Newyork based setting. Seems like Ubisoft pulled off the same game here like it did from the transition between Assassin's Creed Origins to Odyssey or even Far Cry New Dawn from Far Cry 5.
In short, The Division 2's world doesn't look exciting and fresh enough to tempt you to explore it first instead of completing the checklist of stuffs its world offers.
