In case you didn’t know, Anthem will have its own in-game currency system called “Coins,” which will be available in the VIP demo set to become playable tomorrow. If you’re curious how the Anthem store looks like, and what people can get from it, wonder no more.
Below, we see our first look at the Anthem store items, with the focus primarily set on cosmetics. There are different armor packs for what I presume will be for different shaders and materials for javelins, and emotes as well. Players will be able to buy these using the Coins or Shards.
BioWare has come out and touched on the Anthem store items, and has said that these aren’t the final prices. Here’s what BioWare Senior Systems Designer Chris Schimdt had to say about it:
Hey there! One thing to keep in mind is these don’t represent final, stamped for all of eternity pricing. We are iterating on our economy design and balance almost daily, so you’re seeing a snapshot of one iteration. This is why we tend to not discuss things like pricing, because it’s one of those iterative things that’s sure to change frequently right up until the day you play the game.
Again, Anthem store prices aren’t final, and will be balanced almost daily. And before anyone asks, yes, BioWare still intends to keep microtransactions in the game tied to cosmetics only.
