Another year of Geoff Keighley’s Games Awards, previously the Spike Games Awards, has passed and as well as the litany of awards handed out to games and their developers, this year we got to see some lovely new trailers and gameplay for some upcoming games. Let’s have a look:
We got to see the new trailer for Hideo Kojima’s new game starring Norman Readus and multiple babies. Bloody hell what a strange video game this is turning out to be with skeleton soldiers, strange tentacle tanks and…. Is that Guillermo Del Toro and Mads Mikkelsen!? What is this thing?
Zelda: Breath of the Wild
It may not have shown us anything particularly new but the new trailer for Zelda: Breath of the Wild is simply gorgeous. With nothing other than a serene piece of music, reels of gameplay footage and small bits of CG to tie it all together, this trailer has gone back to the roots of games trailers. It’s simply a joy to watch.
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition
So Bulletstorm is getting remastered. Coming April 2017, Bulletstorrm: The Full Clip Edition with 4K support, the usual array of remaster accoutrements as well as some extra content with Duke Nukem himself as long as you pre-order. One more thing to pull off the remaster pile, I suppose.
Telltale’s The Walking Dead Series 3
YES! Telltale is now officially coming out with another series of their absolute smash hit The Walking Dead. Personally I prefer the Walking Dead titles more than Telltale’s other recent outings and now I get to revisit the world with some new characters and old faces. Clementine. Is. Back.
Halo Wars 2
We get to see another cinematic trailer for the new Halo Wars title. It fills out a good bit of the background lore for us about the new threat: Atriox. A brute who defied the Covenant and formed his own horde of allies. It’s up to Captain James Cutter and the crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire to stop him.
Mass Effect: Andromeda Gameplay
Finally, we got the chance to see around five minutes of commentated gameplay for the new Mass Effect title. A lot of what’s here will be familiar to veterans of the franchise…very familiar but with some updated graphics Andromeda is looking rather good. Plus, as everyone knows, the soul of the Mass Effect games has always been on character and story, not visuals.
