Blomkamp is famed for his work on sci-fi movies such as District 9, Chappie, and Elysium, so he seems like a solid choice to bring BioWare's upcoming looter shooter to life.

Been working on something new.

This isn't even the first time Blomkamp has done this for a video game, giving Halo 3 the same treatment in 2007 with Landfall. The publisher has partnered with Hollywood director Neill Blomkamp to produce a short film set in the game's world.

In Anthem, players can play with up to three friends to explore and battle in a unsafe, mysterious world with great characters and a unique BioWare story. Players will be able to customize and personalize their Javelins with unique paint jobs and gear so they'll have the right tools to confront nearly any situation, and look good doing it.

Anthem is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 22.

The teaser for Conviction: An Anthem Story is only 18 seconds long and the opening shot shows off a dramatic mountainside with Javelin's flying through before cutting to a shot of a Javelin standing in the rain.
