Although The Game Awards was priced in last night's (1679003) Last Jedi source 167 minutes (more if you count the pre-show) in 2018, the evening was packed with video games and announcements more than the ten premieres that host Geoff Keighley had promised in advance.
Here is a summary of the biggest buzz of The Game Awards 2018, from simple surprises to sparkling revelations that brought this event accompanied by an E3 keynote.
Joker from Persona 5 joins the series Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at
. With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Ultimate we had the impression that we had heard everything about his list. Nope. The Persona franchise, which was reserved for PlayStation only, contributed its main character Joker from Persona as a 76th fighter in a surprise that had surprised everyone.
"I dare, the biggest crossover in entertainment," Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime praised this trailer, "Russo's trouble may have something to say," joked Keighley. (The Avengers directors were just on stage to present the prize for the best running game.)
Mortal Kombat 11
Although Mortal Kombat X is only five years ago, a continuation of this great story becomes a mild surprise announcement to the Blindside – The founder of Netherrealm, Ed Boon, reportedly went on stage to award the Best Sports / Racing Game Award, which also became an interruption to the trailer for Mortal Kombat 11  Fans do not have to wait long, it's on their way to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on April 23, 2019.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order
The first big surprise of the night, not just because they did not revive a franchise in a decade, but because Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is an exclusive Nintendo switch. It's coming next year from Team Ninja, the creators of Nioh and Ninja Gaiden.
Far Cry: New Dawn
Ubisoft's ill-guarded secret seeped like a sieve until the lights of The Game Awards 2018 lit up. There was an official teaser at the beginning of the week, but yesterday were Box Art and all other marketing materials available at retail. The trailer confirmed what we expected: this spin-off will take place in the post-apocalyptic ruins of Montana, which were killed at the end of the year Far Cry 5 earlier this year. It will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 15, 2019.
Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey
Technically a surprise and technically no surprise. The creator of Assassin's Creed, Patrice Désilets, had previously announced this game, but that was 2015, and we had not heard much since. This trailer, which features pre-alpha gameplay footage from last April 2017, shows how players take the role of early hominids in the survival struggle of our species. Ancestors released by the Take-Two Interactive label Private Division, will be released next year on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
Leaked in early May, confirmed much later At Bethesda Softwork's & # 39; E3 and QuakeCon presentations, we knew a great deal about Rage 2 except for the screen time start date. This open-world gameplay trailer has taken care of this detail: May 14 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
Dragon Age : ???
BioWare had dismissed clues to the next Dragon Age game (2014 Inquisition was the last) last week and earlier, and this trailer officially states the sequel. But it's only for a minute and does not even give a name, just a hashtag. So that's less curious and more of a reminder.
Stranger Things 3: The Game
No, it's not the customization that was blown up when Telltale Games blew up in September. BonusXP made Stranger Things: The game last year for mobile platforms. This game, which is similar to the top-down 16-bit action game, also comes to consoles. It is expected to start when Stranger Things " premieres on Netflix in the third season sometime in 2019.
The really great discoveries
The Outer Worlds
Whether it reminds you of Borderlands or Fallout or a combination, The Outer Worlds is in the hands of people who know RPGs: Obsidian Entertainment and especially the co-creators of the original Fallout , It also has a kind of sci-fi aesthetic of the staggered era in terms of setting and characters. Microsoft bought Obsidian earlier this month, but this game is released by Take-Two's Private Division.
For the size and scope, Atlas probably takes the cake for the biggest unveiling of the Game Awards 2018. From the creators of Ark: Survival Evolved Atlas should be even 1200 times larger than that. It's an "open-world survival MMO" with pirate ships, a plethora of fantasy monsters and armored knights on horseback and almost everything you can imagine. According to Studio Wildcard, a single world can contain 40,000 players. It will be launched next week with early access to the PC, and next year the preview program will be shown on Xbox One.
