Xbox Series X wasn’t the only exciting thing that was announced at The Game Awards 2019. The video game award show has become a spot for the developers to give a sneak peek of their upcoming creations to the world of gaming.
With Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo coming together, the developers have revealed their works that are releasing on either one of these platforms. From CyberPunk 2077 to the Final Fantasy VII Remake, 2020 is definitely going to be a great year for gamers. Let’s find out what are other biggest announcements happened at the Oscar-equivalent award show for video games!
When there isn’t much news about Sony PlayStation 5 yet, the highly anticipated console has already gotten its first game. Gearbox Software, the studio that has worked on popular games like Borderlands and Half-Life announced a new game titled Godfall.
The fantasy role-playing game will be launching on the new console next year. Godfall will adopt a third-person perspective for gameplay. Players can choose to play solo, or team up with a friend or two for duo or trio co-op. As for the story, it will feature a fantasy looter-slasher focused on melee combat that set in a brand-new fantasy universe.
The studio that brought us PUBG has also announced something which we couldn’t quite catch. They released a teaser video featuring an eerie-looking forest with a person breathing heavily in the background. It’s hard to figure out which category the video game belongs to after watching the video.
The Creative Director of the company, Brendan Greene, stated that they are experimenting with new technologies and gameplay experiences. With the release of Prologue, the company aims to give players unique and memorable experiences. We can’t wait for what they have for us!
League of Legends: Ruined Kings and Convergence

Now it’s CyberPunk 2077’s turn. The developer CD Projekt Red revealed they will be working with several famous artists to work on the video game’s soundtrack.

At the award show, Square Enix announced they will be bringing the Final Fantasy-like 3DS game, Bravely Default, to Nintendo Switch next year. The game was acclaimed as one of the best RPGs.
