Anthem turned heads when it debuted at E3 last month, and it featured incredible visuals with its Xbox One X footage. It will not be an exclusive title, so PlayStation uploaded their official trailer to their Youtube channel. This is all part and parcel of normal business, with one snafoo. The trailer is the Xbox One X gameplay footage and has the Xbox buttons photoshopped to look like PlayStation buttons.
At several points in the video, as pointed out by Eurogamer, you can see many instances of the PlayStation overlay when played at slower than normal speeds.
You’ll recognize that the trailer is indeed the same exact version word for word as the Xbox One X version. The description even only says “PS4” and not “Ps4 Pro”, which is even more odd considering how Anthem is marketed. It would be one thing if it was the same footage running on a PS4 or PS4 Pro, as that could showcase the differences between consoles. This, on the other hand, is an extremely poor attempt by the PlayStation Youtube channel.
You can see the full trailer below, and read the comments if you want some extra laughs. Not everyone who noticed the rip off was kind.
Anthem will release in the Fall of 2018.
