Way better than a box of candy hearts.
Valentine’s Day is more than just a day to celebrate love, at least for this year, with the announcement a new live-action short set in the Anthem universe premieres February 14.
The short is from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp and is set “decades before the events of the game,” according to the description.
The movie has a placeholder page on YouTube, where you can set a reminder to watch when it goes live Thursday.
Anthem’s release date is February 22, one week after the premiere of the short, live-action film. EA hopes Anthem, along with the recently released Titanfall-based Apex Legends, can help bolster its earnings after a “difficult” third-quarter.
Earlier this month, EA revealed the Anthem post-launch and end-game content roadmap, including guilds, new missions, difficulty settings, an expansion of its progression system, and other continuing updates.
