This year’s Game Awards, hosted by Geoff Keighly just ended, showcasing and awarding this year’s best games while premiering some upcoming games for the year 2019 and massive updates for released games. Fortnite is currently in Season 7, and from the trailer, we can see some additions to the map, a new flying vehicle in the X-4 Stormwing Plane, and a new addition to the game dubbed Creative, a new mode that allows players to build on a unique island. To make it sweeter, the Battle Royale mode of Fortnite has a spaced reserved on the world map just to showcase the creations made via Creative. PUBG also introduced a new 6×6 map, dubbed Vikendi, a winter map. But onwards to reveals!
The Outer Worlds
The Outer Worlds is Obsidian Entertainment’s latest creation, and if you do not know, Obsidian Entertainment was the creator of Fallout and Fallout: New Vegas. The team previously worked at Black Isle Studios when they created Fallout. But onwards to the game. It looks similar to Fallout, and like most people would chime in and say: “It’s like Fallout, in space.” The game is a single-player, first-person, sci-fi RPG.
Hades is the latest game from Supergiant Games, the people behind Bastion, Transistor and Pyre. The game does share some similarities in design, mainly with its Isometric View and gameplay. You will hack, slash, dash and die numerous times in the game. So it’s definitely safe to assume some smooth gameplay with an amazing soundtrack. You can even get the game now and play it early on Epic Games’ own launcher.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: Black Order
Developed by Team Ninja, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 puts everyone’s favourite Marvel superheroes against the Black Order, the aliens that serve Thanos. You might have seen some of them in Avengers: Infinity War as Children of Thanos. It is a beat-em up game that can be played solo or multiplayer, with up to four players. Even Wolverine makes a comeback in his traditional yellow spandex suit. The game is also exclusive on Nintendo Switch, and takes place after the events of the previous Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 game.
Far Cry New Dawn
Get ready to dive into the world of Far Cry once again, as New Dawn takes place 17 years after the events of the original game. However, we’re not sure if this will be a DLC for Far Cry 4 or a completely separate game just like Far Cry Blood Dragon. But as the name suggests, the world is now a nuclear wasteland (Maybe another hit at Fallout), the game showed off some mutated animals and it seems like some rowdy highwaymen are here to take over your settlement. In other news, dogs can ride on the passenger seat of your car now. The game releases on the 15th of February 2019.
God of War won the GOTY award, while Red Dead Redemption 2 swooped a few awards. SonicFox is voted the Best Esports Player of year. There were a few other announcements such as Dragon Age 4, Mortal Kombat 11, Joker from Persona 5 as the first DLC character in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, Psychonauts 2 and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, the Crash Bandicoot version of Mario Kart will be out June 21 2019.
