About the story and the history of the Anthem
Much of the history of the Anthem remains a mystery, but in a recent article of Game Informer, BioWare has told in detail about some details of the plot.
The gods, called Shapers, used ancient technology to control the Anthem of Creation, a powerful tool designed for the formation of the planet, which includes action games. And no, this planet is not Earth. For some unknown reason, the Shapers left, leaving the work unfinished, but they left on the planet their instruments, which is now littered with everything. Worse, some of the older technologies are still functional and will be activated without warning. Imagine if someone left a working chainsaw the size of a mountain near the rainforest. If only someone touched it, the result could be disastrous for local flora and fauna. The same applies to the world of Anthem, unstable place where disruptive change can occur at any time and in any place. What a convenient premise for the game.

Using these technologies the planet's inhabitants create eczecstwa called Javelins (hereinafter Javelin). You play as one of the rescuers known as Freelancer (hereafter, Freelancer).
The hero has to explore a hostile world and Anthem to fight the Dominion, a paramilitary group which is trying to qualify for the technology of the gods for their own nefarious purposes.
