BioWare has announced in a blog post today that the critically acclaimed studio will be holding a panel at PAX West to talk about Anthem and help answer the fan's questions. Particularly, BioWare wants to address concerns about story within the game and how it fits BioWare's reputation.

"We talked briefly at EA Play about how the solution is called 'Our World, My Story'," BioWare GM Casey Hudson wrote in a blog post today. "In the dynamic open world, everything is experienced in real-time by all Anthem players – day/night, weather, and world-scale events that shape the ongoing narrative of the setting.  This is 'our world,' which we share as a player community.  Then when you return to Fort Tarsis, that’s actually a single-player experience, and it’s where you spend time developing relationships, making choices, and seeing consequences.  That’s the 'my story' part. 
"But even with that description I know there are many more questions about how it will work," Hudson continued. "To really go deep on this subject, we’ll be doing a panel at PAX where we’ll talk about 'our world, my story, and other big questions you’ve had about Anthem."

Perhaps most telling, however, is what Hudson writes when talking about BioWare's other projects.

"And yes - we hear loud and clear the interest in BioWare doing more Dragon Age and Mass Effect, so rest assured that we have some teams hidden away working on some secret stuff that I think you’ll really like – we’re just not ready to talk about any of it for a little while…" Hudson says.

PAX West will be held August 31 through September 3 in Seattle. Anthem will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 22.

Anthem is clearly BioWare's first priority, so it's unlikely we'll hear anything about Mass Effect or Dragon Age anytime before that game releases. Still, it's interesting that Hudson is so candidly talking about what's next, perhaps in hopes that it will act as a salve for BioWare fans eager for their more authored stories.
