Besides the E3 Awards, the Game Awards will also take place on July 18. This is where you can find out the most popular games for the coming year. There are plenty of good games that you can play in the coming years, such as God of War Ragnarok, Street Fighter 6, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, and Death Stranding 2.
God of War Ragnarok
Earlier this month, the sequel to the hit God of War series, God of War Ragnarok, hit the shelves. This PS-exclusive action/adventure game has seen a lot of positive reviews as well as critical acclaim. The game’s sales are also impressive. But what does the upcoming Game Awards 2022 have in store for the title?
The Game Awards celebrate the biggest games of the year. This year, there are 31 awards up for voting. Fans can vote through authenticated online voting or the official TGA Discord server.
The award ceremony is held next month. Several games are up for nominations, including Horizon Forbidden West, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and Immortality. The jury is made up of representatives from 100 different outlets. The nominees include Bandai Namco, Riot Games, Annapurna Interactive, and Sony Interactive Entertainment.
The most nominated publisher is Sony Interactive Entertainment, followed by Annapurna Interactive. Other nominees in the category are Horizon Forbidden West, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and BlueTwelve’s Stray.
The game is nominated in six categories: best narrative, audio design, score, and performance. Christopher Judge, who plays the Greek god Kratos, was appointed for best performance for his work in the title. His speech was very long.
Other nominees are also deserving. Some more good titles included Marvel Snap, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Horizon Forbidden West, and A Plague Tale: Requiem.
Some negative reviews criticized the graphics and technical glitches. However, most players agree that the game is on another level. The game’s visuals are beautiful, and the game’s environment is fantastic.
God of War: Ragnarok is expected to be a big winner at The Game Awards. The sequel is set in Nine Realms, packed with action. It was one of the first games to make a splash after its release, and it’s a great contender for Game of the Year.
During The 2022 Game Awards , FromSoftware’s Elden Ring was named the Game of the Year. It beat out God of War Ragnarok, Horizon Forbidden West, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 for the award.
The Game Awards were held in Los Angeles, California. It is an opportunity for games industry professionals to gather and celebrate the best of the year. It also features trailers for upcoming games.
One of the show’s biggest highlights was FromSoftware’s announcement of a new game, Armored Core VI. It marks the first new Armored Core game in more than a decade. The announcement trailer sets a grim tone. It will be released on the PlayStation, Xbox Series, and PC.
Before Armored Core, FromSoftware was a small game development studio. They started with a third-person mecha shooter franchise called “Armored Core”. They later went on to develop the Dark Souls series. They have now become one of the world’s most popular video game developers.
Elden Ring, the sequel to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, has sold more than 17 million copies and is one of the year’s most popular games. It has received critical acclaim and won many accolades.
FromSoftware’s Elden Ring has been nominated for several Game Awards. It was named the Best RPG and Best Action Adventure for the year and the Best Art Direction, Best Performance, and Best PlayStation Game. It is also up for seven other nominations.
The Golden Joystick Awards 2022 presented the Ultimate Game of the Year Award to Elden Ring. It received critical acclaim for its gameplay and world-building, which fantasy writer George R. R. Martin provided.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
During the Game Awards 2022, the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor trailer was revealed. It offers new details about the upcoming game, including the release date.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be a sequel to the previously released “Jedi: Fallen Order”. The game is set five years after the events of the original title. The story is about a “Survivor” character thrust into the galactic spotlight. As a result, he must grow in his connection with the Force. To do this, he must ally with interesting characters. Eventually, he will feel the weight of being the galaxy’s last Jedi.
Despite being a sequel, the game is a direct continuation of the “Fallen Order”. Developed by Respawn Entertainment, the company behind Apex Legends, the game will feature an expanded list of enemies and an updated lightsaber fighting style. The game will also include dynamic lighting effects and ray tracing.
The game will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC. It will include an Obi-Wan Kenobi-inspired Jedi Survival cosmetic pack. It will also come with a full-size lightsaber hilt.
The game has received a lot of praise from the gaming community for its Metroidvania-style gameplay and its focus on The Force as a gameplay mechanic. The game received a nomination for Best Action/Adventure Game at the 2020 Game Awards. The ending of the game leaves many storyline options open.
The game is currently being developed by Respawn Entertainment, which works on two other Star Wars titles. They are also developing an FPS game and a strategy game.
The release date of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor still needs to be officially confirmed, but it has been leaked through the digital distribution platform Steam. It is estimated to hit on March 17, 2023.
Death Stranding 2
During The Game Awards 2022, Hideo Kojima officially announced Death Stranding 2. The sequel to Death Stranding will star Norman Reedus, Elle Fanning, Shioli Kutsuna, and Troy Baker.
Death Stranding 2 is an upcoming open-world post-apocalyptic video game. It follows the story of Sam Porter Bridges, played by Norman Reedus, who is at a crossroads. At one point, he is invited to join the crew of a giant ship.
Kojima Productions and Sony have been working on the game. The PlayStation 5 will be the primary platform, but the game could eventually make its way to other platforms. The game will be powered by Decima, an engine developed by Guerrilla Games, which also powers Horizon Zero Dawn. This new engine has helped the developer set benchmarks for visual fidelity.
It’s expected that Death Stranding 2 will be more intelligent than the first game. It will feature more social connections, exploration, and timefall. The trailer has revealed that the story takes place some time after the first game’s events. Ahead of the announcement, Norman Reedus teased the release of a new Death Stranding game earlier this year. However, he only revealed a little.
On the same day, Kojima’s production house released the first trailer for the game. The trailer could be more informative but it shows interesting scenes and unnerving graphics. The trailer also introduces BBs, MetaHuman technology, and new bad guys. The trailer will likely remain mysterious until a full release date is announced. The game is also set in a post-apocalyptic world, with a new character named Fragile. The surface looks older than Sam, which makes sense.
Street Fighter 6
During The Game Awards 2022, Capcom announced the release date of Street Fighter 6. The video also showed some of the game’s new fighters, modes and locations. It’s set to hit the streets on June 2, 2023.
In addition to the new characters, the trailer also showed off a World Tour mode where players can customize their avatars and explore the world. During this mode, they can also play minigames in various locations.
In addition to the new characters, some familiar faces are in the mix. These include Ryu, Chun-Li, Dee Jay, JP, and Marisa. The roster of 18 characters is expected to be quite large. The game will feature a variety of control schemes, unique moves and control options and have real-time commentary.
In addition to the upcoming release, Street Fighter 6 will also be part of several fighting esports tournaments. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The deluxe edition will come with a Year One character pass, allowing players to choose four playable characters for the game’s first year. In addition, players can get outfit colour variations for each character.
The standard and deluxe editions will both include the base game. In addition to the base game, the deluxe edition will consist of the Year One character pass and outfit colours 3 through 10 for each Year 1 character. The deluxe edition will also contain extra Drive Tickets used for cosmetics and in-game purchases. The game will also include Battle Hub, where players can communicate with other players and use their avatars.
