There are many collaborations between Hollywood and the gaming industry in the works, but EA just announced a standout one. Today, the company said that Neill Blomkamp, the Academy Award-nominated director of District 9, Elysium, and Chappie, is working with the publisher on a live-action short film called “Conviction” based on Anthem. Anthem is an upcoming shared world third-person shooter from BioWare. BioWare is the studio behind famous franchises like Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Anthem is expected to launch on February 22, 2019. Just like Destiny, the developer wants to support the game for the next ten years.
Recently, Digital Foundry managed to test all the versions of the game and concluded that only the Xbox One X offered native 4K resolution. The PlayStation 4 Pro achieves 1800p. In an earlier analysis, Digital Foundry discovered that there were “checkerboarding” artifacts on all versions — even PC — but that’s not the case.
