The Game Awards 2019 Biggest Reveals and Trailers
The Game Awards 2019, as we all know is here to recognize the best games that launched during the year. It, however, also comes with a lot of announcements and updates for upcoming games as well as some trailer premiers. Just in case you were not able to watch the live show, we have for you a compilation of the best trailers and reveals from the show below:
Xbox Series X
Microsoft finally revealed what project Scarlett is all about and revealed the Xbox Series X. Although the name isn’t a wow-factor, the aesthetics of the console actually is. The new Xbox kind of looks like a small PC. You can display this horizontally or vertically, whichever way you want.
Senua’s Saga Hellblade 2
After Microsoft announced the newest console, the next appropriate step is to announce the games that will be available for it. The first confirmed game for the Series X is Senua’s Saga Hellblade 2, and it looks much darker than the first game. The trailer provided features of the Series X’s in-engine.
Sony also shared big news, although it is not about their upcoming console, the PlayStation 5, they did share what the first game is that is coming to their next-generation console. The game is Godfall and it is described as a “third-person fantasy looter-slasher focused on melee combat”. This game will also be made available for PC.
Prologue is the next project that Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene of PUBG is being busy about. PUBG is being handled by PUBG Corp, so Greene and his new studio are working on this new game. A 30-second teaser was made available for the game which kind of looks more like a tech demo showing off the game’s spectacular effects and visuals rather than a reveal trailer.
League of Legends Stories
A new publishing label from Riot has been created and it is called Riot Forge. This new publishing label will be allowing developers to create games that are set in the League of Legends universe. Two titles have been announced already which are Ruined King and Convergence. The teaser for Ruined King can be seen above.
Ghost of Tsushima
Another game has been revealed by Sony and it is the PlayStation 4 exclusive game called Ghost of Tsushima. Sony shared a trailer for the game which is about four and a half minutes long and it features some of the game’s story as well as some of its impressive visuals. The game’s release window had been shared too, which is the summer of 2020.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake
There had already been a lot of Final Fantasy 7 Remake trailers already but this new one focuses on the main protagonist Cloud Strife. If you are fans of the original game, you’ll definitely love this. The trailer does give us a few snippets of gameplay but not a lot though.
CD Projekt Red highlighted the music of Cyberpunk 2077 during their time at The Game Awards 2019. They featured the artists that are part of the soundtrack which includes Refused, Grimes, Run the Jewels, and Ilan Rubin.
Gears Tactics had almost been forgotten and we are grateful that Xbox Games Studios finally shared information about the game via an impressive looking trailer. Also, a specific launch date had been revealed which is April 28, 2020. The game is already in a different genre but it still has the authentic Gears experience.
Fast & Furious Crossroads
The Fast & Furious game had been announced by Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez. This won’t be a racing simulation but more of a heist simulator. We will get to see a lot of the characters from the movies, of course, including the two that presented the game. Fast & Furious Crossroads will be launching in May 2020.
As compared to the previous lineup of trailers of The Game Awards, this wasn’t the most impressive, but we sure do think that the Xbox Series X stole the show. We are, however, excited about Sony’s announcement for the PlayStation 5 whenever that will be.
