In the future, where humanity is barely hanging on against both aliens and giant planetside monsters without the benefit of Nathan Fillion's light-hearted advice (no, it's not DESTINY 2) players take on their Javelin exosuits (no, it's not WARFRAME) to venture forth on missions of exploration and combat. You're right, it's not the most original of game concepts, but EA has spent a ton of money and it's got the Bioware people behind it, so it does look promising. Scheduled to release in February, 2019.
