Director Neill Blomkamp Announces Live-Action Anthem Short

Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) today announced a live-action short set in the world of Anthem.

EA and BioWare have enlisted the sci-fi director to handle a live-action short film set in the Anthem universe. The film drops Valentine’s Day, right before the game becomes playable for EA Access and Origin Premier subscribers.

The short film does not follow the events of the game. Rather, it takes place decades before the events players experience. Blomkamp dropped a short teaser on his Twitter page, which showcases some lovely environmental shots and a look at a Javelin.

Anthem is officially out February 22 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. However, if you’re an EA Access member on Xbox One, or Origin Premier member on PC, you can start playing February 15. Meanwhile, you can watch Blomkamp’s short on February 14 via YouTube.
