Anthem will not have any romance options, developer BioWare has told Game Informer.

Apparently this is a surprise for some people because Anthem's a BioWare game, and they're obviously known for getting pretty heavy on the hanky panky side of things with Dragon Age and Mass Effect. 

Still, it's pretty obvious the game is totally different to BioWare's previous efforts. 

As such, Anthem's characters won't be getting their kit off, though there will be 'friendship' elements.

'There are no romances. There are friendships. Some of the stuff we did with Mass Effect – the Citadel DLC specifically – there was a lot of friendship moments. You and Garrus sitting up, shooting – that kind of stuff, we want to lean into that. The romantic stuff, we’re moving away from that for Anthem,' the game's Lead Producer, Mike Gamble said. 

Elsewhere, BioWare's Mark Darrah confirmed there would be 'no PvP at launch.' 

Anthem was showcased during EA Play last night, where the publishing giant slapped a February 22, 2019 release date on the much-anticipated title.
