In answering a fan on Twitter, Anthem producer Ben Irving has confirmed the amount of matchmaking in the game – and it's extensive.
Matchmaking in "every activity" would mean players can team-up for everything from Strongholds and missions, to events, and free-play.
BioWare has previously confirmed that "most" of the game can be soloable, while Strongholds require four players.
Having matchmaking confirmed for this element of Anthem helps set it apart from others in the genre, which have offered limited matchmaking – if any at all – for endgame content.
Of course, one element that won't include matchmaking is Anthem Player vs. Player, since there won't be any PVP at launch.

After the previous director Shawn Levy stepped away from the movie adaptation of Uncharted, you would be forgiven for thinking that the film would never make it out of the pre-production stage. Movies based on Video Games have a historically rough ride with many being announced only to stay in limbo for years before being cancelled outright.
According to Variety, there's still hope for the Uncharted movie as 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg has been pegged to helm the Sony Pictures film.
The Uncharted film is set to star Tom Holland in the role of a Nathan Drake and will chronicle the beginning of his and Victor Sullivans relationship. The movie has seen several changes during recent years with Mark Wahlberg initially tapped to star as the charismatic treasure hunter. After the phenomenal success of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the studio decided to pivot and focus on Drake's early years.
Treyarch has some nice changes for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 this month. In a post on Reddit, the developers have outlined what fans should expect in the coming weeks.
In the developer update, Treyarch confirmed that changes are coming to all three of the game's modes.

Well, we didn't see this coming...
