The annual Game Awards were held yesterday, which not only honored the game of the year, but also made a lot of announcements and showed many new trailers. In addition to new IPs and game sequels, Microsoft unveiled the new Xbox. You can find out which games have been announced and what has been revealed about the new Xbox in this article.
Games Awards 2019: Microsoft unveils the design and name of the new console
The name? Xbox Series X. As a PlayStation fan, I already have problems with the Xbox naming convention – how will it be for the people out there who don't have to deal with consoles every day? The design? Without sounding particularly judgmental: it is a black block that reminds us most of a small PC tower. In addition, Phil Spencer, Xbox CEO, unveiled the new controller, which will now also have a share button integrated.
Also shown at the Game Awards: Senua’s Saga: Hellblade
According to Kotaku be Senua’s Sage: Hellblade II exclusively for PC and Xbox consoles.
Godfall: The first game for the PS5
The trailer shown ended with "PlayStation 5" and we were all over the house. Godfall is the first game to be officially released for PlayStation 5.
J-RPG fans also got their money's worth with Bravely Default II
After Bravely Second, Bravely Default II will be the third part of the series and the first to be released on the Nintendo Switch. Its appearance is planned for 2020.
For fans of Tell Tale games: The Wolf Among Us 2
The Wolf Among Us 2 is the sequel to one of my favorite Telltale games. The trailer alone gives us the finest neon lights and synth sounds. My body is ready!
Also interesting: Weird West by the developers of Prey and Dishonored
Admittedly, the trailer doesn't show much, but the description is much more interesting: "Each trip is unique and tailored to the actions taken – a series of high-impact stories where everything counts and the world responds to the decisions you make. Form a group or venture alone into the beyond of the strange West and make each legend your own."
All in all a cool graphic style with a dash of occultism!
