The game prizes took place last night and, as always, the event was a blend of hype for last year in play (with God of War wins the overused-in-meaninglessness title Game of the Year) and advertising for the upcoming. This can only mean one thing: an almost avenable sea of followers. Do not worry: we have limited them a little, and given some context for each game.
Obsidian, aggressively exploits the status of its designers as "original" developers of Fallout (some may say unsportingly, given the incredible error in Bethesda's Fallout 76 ), it had The best announcement at night, in the form of The Outer Worlds which looks like a combination of Fallout Mass Effect and Guardians of the Galaxy . It looks bright and fun, with an interesting universe story, and even better, one of the thirteen "game choices" gives the mechanics of the book. This immediately happened to the top of my wanted list.
BioWare announced a new Dragon Age in the worst cases, not even giving as much a look at a title (unless it's just called Dragon Age claims that "quite single title reboot "scene just ten years after Origins launched). There is little to go on visually other than the presence of a dragon, although the sound and the text strongly refer to (basically pure states) return of Solas from Dragon Age: Inquisition . I liked Inquisition although I'm aware that opinions about the existing games are both very varied and just common. It will be interesting to see what the next one is, given much BioWare's attention is currently focused on its coming online game Anthem (also trailer).
19659072] Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 caused a ruckus to be announced as a Nintendo Switch exclusive. Finally, a non-Nintendo exclusive owner of other consoles can be jealous! I'm not personally a big fan of these games, but I understand their appeal. A substantial part of this appeal comes from the massive squares of characters offered and predictably shows the trailer all the people you saw in Avengers: Infinity War Only in strange, slightly off-fire shapes obviously trying to be as close to the brand as possible without breaking similarity rights. Personally I was surprised this was the night's marvel announcement, and not Avengers The game Eidos Montreal has been known to work long, but it comes when it's good and clear.
Double Fine Productions finally gave a strong glimpse of Psychonauts 2 which looks full of character and new gameplay. This is a sequel that has been clamored forever since its original 2005 launch, and it was announced on the Game Awards, amazingly, three years ago. Time flies, but based on this carefully curated flash, the game looks good. More oddball psychological theme adventure? Yes, please.
New Zealand studio A44 straight-up launched its long-awaited Xbox exclusive Ashen . A Souls -A awesome adventure title with some unique wrinkles by itself, it has been in development for years, as shown in Xbox's indie showcase videos at all kinds of fairs. And now it's out! For Xbox One and PC, that's the last one of the launch titles on Epic Games new online store, which hopefully will take Steam down a stick as it grows. Assassin's Creed creator Patrice Desilets revealed a release window and gameplay recording from Panache Studios prehistoric adventure game (?) : Humankind Odyssey . I do not know how this thing is going to play – hopefully its evolutionary story, which takes place over millions of years, plays more coherently than, say Spore – but it's a bold concept and that's it  Annapurna's Nintendo Switch Game Sayonara Wild Hearts has probably taken my heart (ho, ho) with its magenta-hued, synthpop musical battle game. Described as "an euphoric music video dreams of being awesome, riding motorcycles, skateboarding, dance games, shooting lasers, swinging swords and breaking hearts at 200km / h," it looks very pretty and unique and the music is one of those kinds music I like to listen to. I can not wait. The creators of Abzu revealed their second game, The Pathless who sees each piece as beautiful as their debut. You play an archer sprint traipsing through a forest with an eagle companion, hunting critters and fighting beasties. A curious mix of cultural elements, The headless visual hook must be the large, inverted volcano hanging in the sky above the landscape. I'm interested in knowing how it would look if you tilted the camera a bit higher on it.
Amazing, Hello Games (by No Man's Sky fame) found time to announce a whole new game (a "card", in particular) among its ongoing rolling updates to its flagship title. Or maybe it's not that amazing: I'm willing to make sure the project was greenish, at least in part to help boost the morale of the studio. At least, The Last Campfire is a cute, artistic puzzle adventure, and although the trailer does not tell us a lot, it has a great picture in it. Finally: The Creator of ARK: Survival Evolved Formally Announced It Long Leaked Atlas An Open-World Pirate-Theme Survival MMO That Looks Like Rare  Sea of Thieves but with more photorealistic graphics and violence. Also, there are dragons, demons, giant sharks, a cyclops, a four-head King Ghidorah-looking guy, and it looks like the quite crack. It is designed for "up to 40,000 players", which seems both technically dubious and very optimistic, especially given ARK's less than star track record with performance and stability. You can go see a hanging, though. It is something.
There were more announcements, and more advertisements for already announced games, of course. Many were updates or followers of current titles; Some resemble existing titles; Some were suppe-up re-releases of older titles; Far Cry: New Dawn and Rage 2 s followers still looked at each other in many ways. But the ten ads mentioned above are the ones that sparkle my interest the most.
And yet they're all pale next to Ape Out Saul Bass and Hotline Miami-inspired game where you play a monkey coming from violent people. That trailer dropped yesterday, but did not play in the Game Awards, and honestly it's the Awards Wallpaper.
