Anthem's Lead Producer Mike Gamble has announced that the team has added a new feature to the game called "Launch Bay". In effect, Launch Bay is a multiplayer hub for up to sixteen players. "Hang out with your friends, use the forge, reload and grab a new contract." Gamble wrote. He further stated that this feature was added based on community feedback.
After a mission, you can head back to Tarsis and catch up with some of the amazing characters we've created for you...OR...head back to the brand new Launch Bay, hang out with your friends, use the forge, reload and grab a new contract. Yeah, we listened to you... details soon! pic.twitter.com/m5sp96IpDh— Michael Gamble (@GambleMike) January 23, 2019
