The Game Awards 2018 kicks off in a little over a week’s time, but despite the many awards handed out — be it on-stage or in passing remark in-between other awards — we all know the reason the show attracts so many viewers (least in recent years especially) is of the growing number of reveals and announcements the show appears to gain. Last year we got the first tease to what would later become Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, as well as reveals of Soul Calibur VI, Bayonetta 3, GTFO and even remastered iterations a la Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition.
This year however, the awards will be host to “more than” ten new reveals. That’s excluding updates to games we already know are coming one way or another, or titles that have already been released. What are they? Well, it wouldn’t be a surprise if we knew what they all were beforehand, would it? There have been speculations that Nintendo are planning some form of update to the seemingly-absent Metroid Prime 4 in some capacity, as well as mutterings that a new Alien game will be revealed, following the wonderful 2014 Alien: Isolation.
What looks like to be a certain though is Obsidian, having confirmed that they will be revealing a brand new RPG at the awards — offering some teases and a count-down on their own site to suit. Private Division, the new publishing arm from Take-Two, look to be distributing it which may rule out any involvement with Microsoft, following the latter’s recent acquisition of the studio. The Game Awards 2018 kicks off December 6.
