Suit Up: Building the Javelins of Anthem

Posted on

In Anthem, javelin suits equip pilots with superhuman abilities. Outside the walls of Fort Tarsis, this necessary tool enables you—a Freelancer—to explore and fight in a savage world.

When we showed Anthem to the world at EA PLAY, we wanted to offer a unique look at our javelins. What better way to do this than bring real-life Ranger, Storm, Colossus, and Interceptor suits with us? To pull it off, we asked Henchmen Studios to complete the builds, and they delivered in stunning detail.

Over a period of several months, Henchmen built the suits from the ground up, and we put together a video to give you a look into how it was done. Each suit is built to scale, with the Colossus checking in at a towering 8’3”. We think you’ll be as impressed with their work as we were.
