There’s a lot to report from last night’s Video Game Awards, from all the winners to Hideo Kojima’s “moment he was robbed of.” Top nominees included Blizzard’s multiplayer hit Overwatch, Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, id/Bethesda’s DOOM, and Niantic’s famous mobile app game Pokemon GO.
I won’t delve into too many details, but let’s look at the most noteworthy news and new video game trailers from The Game Awards 2016.
Telltale announced that Season 3 of The Walking Dead video game will launch in two parts. The first episode, named The Ties That Bind, is apparently too big for a single episode. Both parts will release on December 20th.
Speaking of Telltale, the developer also announced they’re working on a video game based on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Like The Walking Dead, the Guardians game will consist of episodes, five for this game. The first episode will launch sometime in 2017 for consoles, PC, and mobile devices.
343 Industries executive producer Dan Ayoub announced Halo Wars 1 Definitive Edition will be available this month for some players. Those who preordered Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition will be able to play Halo Wars 1 remastered on December 20th.
Psyonix announced Rocket League’s next free DLC arena. It’s called Starbase Arc, and it will be available on all platforms on December 7th. Check out the new trailer for the map in the video roundup below.
New independent studio Phoenix Labs announced their first game due in 2017. Called Dauntless, the game is being made by former BioWare and Blizzard team members. Dauntless will be an online co-op RPG set in an “untamed science-fantasy world.” The announcement trailer is below!
