All The Game Awards news you might have missed – every trailer and announcement

Here's every PC game that appeared at the show

the game awards

The Game Awards are over, but Geoff Keighley’s annual gaming extravaganza provided all the big announcements we expected – and then some. There’s plenty to keep track of, so if you missed any of the major news, you can scroll down here for a full recap of everything you need to know about The Game Awards as a PC gamer.

Loads of upcoming PC games were on display, including a sequel to Hellblade, the next-gen ‘looter-slasher’ Godfall, and not one but two new League of Legends spin-offs. We got a fresh look at titles like Gears Tactics and Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and even Amazon’s long-awaited MMO New World – plus plenty more.

Okay, also, I have to give a quick word to the wonderful console titles showcased at the event – and the fact that the new Xbox just looks like a PC tower now. The Ghost of Tsushima trailer looks rad, and Bravely Default 2 is an incredible thing to exist (bizarre naming convention aside), but I’m still not over No More Heroes 3 getting relegated to a pre-show teaser.

Oh, right, and there were those awards, in which Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice took Game of the Year.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 is coming

Alongside Microsoft’s new console, the Xbox Series X, we got a trailer for Ninja Theory’s upcoming Hellblade sequel. Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 looks absolutely stunning, and given Microsoft’s track record lately you can expect it to hit PC, too.

Godfall is a next-gen looter-slasher

Godfall is the first officially-announced PlayStation 5 game, but it’s coming to PC, too. It’s an action-RPG published by Gearbox that’s all about third-person melee combat, and you can party up with your friends for multiplayer monster mashing.

Fortnite re-teases its Star Wars preview

Fortnite is still doing its Rise of Skywalker sneak peak, and that was basically re-confirmed at The Game Awards. The new details are that JJ Abrams and Geoff Keighley will also participate in the event live, and you’ll get a TIE Fighter-themed glider for showing up. At least we now know the Fortnite Star Wars event release time.

Sons of the Forest is the survival game’s horrifying sequel

I do not like looking at anything in this trailer for Sons of the Forest – and I’m sure that’s very intentional. Endnight’s follow-up to the original Forest looks fantastic and terrible all at once.

Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is the Hack ‘n’ Slash that it sounds like

The resemblance to the title of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance isn’t coincidental. Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is a new cooperative hack ‘n’ slash that’ll let you slice your way through the Forgotten Realms.

The Holo-Day Bash in Apex Legends is already underway, with loads of festive decorations, but the bigger part of the event is Winter Express – a new mode where you fight for control of a Christmas-themed train.

Ori sequel gets a trailer and a slight delay

Ori and the Will of the Wisps looks as gorgeous as ever in its new trailer, but there’s a little bit of disappointment to be had – the platform has been delayed one month from its February launch to March 11, 2020.

Weird West is a new immersive sim from former Arkane devs

Wolfeye Studios – the product of some of the heads behind Dishonored and Prey developer Arkane Studios – announced its first game at the show: Weird West, a supernatural cowboy immersive sim. If that pedigree weren’t enough, it seems writer Chris Avellone is also on the project.

Naraka: Bladepoint looks like a cross between For Honor and Assassin’s Creed

Naraka: Bladepoint comes to us from Chinese studio 24 Entertainment, and it’s got enough parkour to give Assassin’s Creed a run for its money. It’s a melee-focused multiplayer title that promises deep combat alongside its major mobility options.
