Taking place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, The Game Awards has become a key event in the calendar for huge announcements for the coming year.
Hosted by Geoff Keighley, this year’s ceremony certainly didn’t disappoint - showing off brand new consoles, new next generation titles and fresh trailers.
So what were the big announcements at the show? Outside of the award winners themselves, here’s all the major gaming reveals which took place at the bash.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2
Following Microsoft’s reveal of new console Xbox Series X, they announced a sequel to Ninja Theory’s critically-acclaimed Hellblade as an exclusive for the platform.
The footage captured is designed to show off the Xbox hardware and, perhaps unsurprisingly, it looks incredibly impressive.
Ruined King - A League Of Legends story
After teasing the announcement, Riot Games revealed the first single-player League Of Legends spin-off game, from Darksiders Genesis developer Airship Syndicate.
Ruined King is a turn-based RPG set after Burning Tides, where you’ll explore Bilgewater and the Shadow Isles while playing as League champions. No release date was given.
Conv/rgence: A League Of Legends Story
Ruined King wasn’t the only League Of Legends spin-off announced. In this title, you play as Ekko, an inventor character who has the ability to mess with time.
This story-driven experience is from developer Double Stallion Games, who are working with Riot on the new project.
Bravely Default 2
Square Enix and Nintendo revealed the third entry in the Bravely Default series, confusingly titled Bravely Default 2.
This is a sequel to both the 2012 Bravely Default and Bravely Second on the Nintendo 3DS. It’s scheduled to be released on Nintendo Switch in 2020.
The first game officially announced for the PlayStation 5 is Godfall, a third-person “looter-slasher” from Gearbox and Counterplay Games.
It’s an entirely brand new IP and will support solo play, duo or three-player co-op. Godfall will be released holiday 2020.
Ghosts Of Tsushima
After a teaser during Sony’s State Of Play stream earlier this week, the full trailer for PlayStation 4 exclusive Ghosts Of Tsushima debuted in full at The Game Awards.
Developed by SuckerPunch, the trailer showed off some stunning visuals and a gameplay segment during a village attack. It’s set to be released in 2020.
Sons Of The Forest
A sequel to popular survival game The Forest, this creepy trailer indicates it’ll maintain the fright levels which made the original such a hit with streamers.
It also seems to hint towards a flip in gameplay where you’re perhaps hunting the monsters, although we’ll have to see when the full game releases.
Based on Dungeons and Dragons, this new game is billed as a spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance series of games.
This third-person action role-playing game arrives at a time when Dungeons and Dragons is having a renaissance of sorts, with the game designed for newcomers and veterans.
From the developers behind Dishonored and Prey, this new action RPG from Wolfeye is set in an alternative American frontier featuring supernatural creatures.
Little else was revealed about the game but it was certainly one of the most visually striking reveals. With the talent behind it, it’ll definitely be one to watch.
The Wolf Among Us 2
LCG Entertainment, who bought the rights to the Telltale publishing name, announced they’re resuming development on The Wolf Among Us 2.
It’s the first Telltale game to be announced since the acquisition and was the follow-up series to their breakout The Walking Dead series.
Fast & Furious Crossroads
In perhaps the most unexpected announcement, a Fast & Furious game was officially announced by film stars Michelle Rodriguez and Vin Diesel at the bash.
The game is set to be released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in May 2020.
From Brendan Greene, the designer behind PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds comes new project Prologue.
It was given a short and mysterious trailer at the ceremony. A description for the game reads: “Prologue is an exploration of new technologies and gameplay. Our aim with this game is to give players unique and memorable experiences, each and every time they play.”
This new Gears Of War title is an XCOM-style spin-off from developer Splash Damage. It promises a 50+ story campaign.
Gears Tactics is out on 28 April in 2020.
