With BioWare first and foremost known as a studio that makes RPG games, the studio seems to be branching out a bit with Anthem, and its shared world action experience. While that might be the case, RPG fans can expect the familiar damage types in Anthem.
BioWare has confirmed the Anthem status effects, elemental damage types in the game! Lead Producer Ben Irving shared some info about the Anthem elemental damage types over on Twitter when he answered a fan.

Not only that, but over on the Anthem subreddit, Irving went a bit more in-depth regarding the Anthem status effects and damage types.
It’s unknown whether there are more elemental or status effect damage types in Anthem. For now though, what Irving shared is what we know.
Anthem flies out this February 22, 2019 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
