Not too long ago, Sony opened the gates for cross-platform play support between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for select titles. Fortnite was the first announced game to take advantage of this, and it seems like BioWare’s Anthem may also be among the games allowing PS4 and Xbox One users to play together.

Answering a question on his Official Twitter Profile, BioWare’s Mark Darrah confirmed that Anthem will not feature cross-platform play at launch, hinting at the fact that it may get implemented after the game releases next February.

Regarding emotes, Mark Darrah stated that there may not be Javelin specific ones at launch, but they will be made eventually.

Earlier this week, new Anthem screenshots have been made available, showcasing the game’s beautiful environments. The prequel graphic novel has also been made available for pre-order.

Yarrow–one of the brave warriors known as Freelancers who pilot powerful Javelin exosuits–rescues a lone boy, Kismet, from an ambush. With no family left alive, Kismet is placed with a family in Fort Tarsis, a human outpost surrounded by untamed wilderness. His adoptive sister, Jani, struggles with Kismet’s withdrawn personality at first, but over the years, the two become close friends. As they grow, Jani learns to fly and fight in Javelin armor, while Kismet trains to join the ranks of the mysterious Cyphers. The pair find themselves split, each pursuing their own craft of war, until an enemy force–large and vicious–appears on the horizon, bringing them together to face their ultimate test.

Anthem launches on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 22nd.
