A hallmark of BioWare games won’t be making it into Anthem, as the developer confirmed there will be no romances in the game.
Revealed by GameInformer, lead producer Mike Gamble has said:
“There are no romances. There are friendships. Some of the stuff we did with Mass Effect – the Citadel DLC specifically – there was a lot of friendship moments. You and Garrus sitting up, shooting – that kind of stuff, we want to lean into that. The romantic stuff, we’re moving away from that for Anthem.”
There are relationships created in the course of the game, but they won’t lead to romantic encounters as in Mass Effect and Dragon Age.
