As we come to the end of 2019, we still have time for one last big show for the gaming industry, The Game Awards 2019 promises plenty of big reveals and trailers, and we are here to catch you up for everything you have missed, so sit tight!


The Game Awards 2019 Announcements/Reveals

With musical performances by the likes of Green Day, Chvrches, and Grimes, the show that celebrates the gaming industry had plenty to show for all three big players. Here’s what went down at the Microsoft Theatre on December 12.

Xbox Series X

Microsoft showed off the Project Scarlett, now known as the Xbox Series X for the first time ever. Touting power, speed, and performance, this is the first glimpse of the next-generation of consoles for the first time. To show off the power of the console, Ninja Theory was on hand to show off their next project, which turns out to be…

Hellbalde II Senua’s Saga

Seemingly continuing the story from where we left off from Hellblade, Ninja Theory looks to expand upon what made the first game so successful with the power of the next-gen console from Xbox. This will be their first exclusive as a first-party studio.

Godfall

Our first PS5 game reveal is Godfall, a brand new IP that is described as a looter-slasher. An action-RPG that you can play both solo and co-op, Counterplay will be working with Gearbox Software to make this happen.

Bravely Default 2

Team Asano, the team behind Octopath Traveler and Bravely Default, is working on a new title for the Nintendo Switch together with Square Enix, and it is a sequel. Bravely Default 2 comes in 2020.

Launching at the show first for PC, the new update will soon come to the consoles as well as the Switch. Going from space ninjas to space pirates, this game just keeps getting better.

Magic: the Gathering – Theros Beyond Death

The ever-popular card game returns to a familiar world, as Magic: The Gathering brings players back to face the gods and myths of Theros.

Prologue

Another world premiere, this short teaser gave us a look at what playerunknown is working on. It’s not much, but certainly interesting for sure as a first-person experience.

Fortnite x Star Wars

Cyberpunk 2077

While the game wasn’t showed off at the show, we got a look at what is going on behind-the-scenes making the soundtrack for one of the most anticipated games of 2020.

Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance

An action-RPG in a world many love, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is being developed by Tuque Studios up in Canada. More details to come for this, surely.

Weird West

Magic Legends

A new MMORPG experience with mythical creatures and human warriors and sorcerors, it is going to be you against the world in Magic Legends

Path of the Warrior

Ghost of Tsushima

Finally, we have a release window for Sucker Punch’s upcoming samurai epic, Ghost of Tsushima. Coming in Summer 2020, the full trailer teased at the State of Play gave us the legends surrounding the Ghost himself, and all the brutality he brings to the battlefield, all accompanied by the live orchestra performance of the game’s soundtrack. “Tell him I am coming,” he says to a defeated foe, and we cannot wait.

Gears Tactics

The spinoff from the iconic Gears‘ series becomes a tactical affair, with a 40+ hour campaign that is brutal, personalized, and in glorious turn-based combat. It is time to rise up and fight on April 28, 2020.

Naraka Bladepoint

Coming out of China, 24 Entertainment’s multiplayer melee-focused affair will hopefully let players relive the amazing duels known in Chinese folklore in scintillating fashion, coming in 2020.

A place of unimaginable beauty, and a growing evil. Where the forces of death and life are in constant conflict. This is where New World will take players in May 2020, developed by Amazon Games.

Convergence – A League of Legends Story

Coming via Riot Forge as well, Double Stallion is working on this new title that is described as a singleplayer action-platformer, and players will assume the role of Echo and explore the intricacies of time-travel and manipulation.

A Wolf Among Us 2

A re-announcement of sorts, The Wolf Among Us 2 will be coming back from the reborn Telltale Games.
