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.

Anthem will release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 22nd.  However it will release early for PC Origin/Access Premier and EA Access members this week on the 15th.  If you subscribe to any of those services, you’ll also be able to play a 10-hour trial of Anthem.
