This year it seems that The Game Awards is taking things up a notch with celebrity announcers Gal Gadot, Brie Larson and Tom Holland brining us new announcements during the event. Over the last few months, we have been teased over and over about potential brand-new games that will be using this platform to advertise them. With the lack of a traditional E3 this year, excitement grows for this event as potential stand-in for this. To this effect we have been discussing the things that we would love to see announced during this event.
Elden Ring was announced in E3 2019, in which the Souls Series creators FromSoftware have teamed up with Game of Thrones writer George R. R. Marin to create their very own action orientated game. Although, not much else is known about this title. There has been huge speculation and leaks to define what this title might be, but since its announcement the team have been so hard at work that it has gone radio silent. Although this hasn’t stopped the community being excited for this title, and how could it? FromSoftware’s Director Miyazaki has created some of the most loved games and has created an entire new genre dubbed as ‘Soulslike’ named after his creations. We want the wait for Elden Rings to be over, and we finally want to see what the development team are working so hard on. With personalities like Phil Spencer (Xbox Head) stating that Elden Ring is their most ambitious game yet, makes it incredibly hard not to be excited for this title!
In E3 2019, Nintendo teased fans with a short trailer for the next instalment in the Legend of Zelda series, Breath of the Wild 2. The trailer left fans with so many questions as to where the next title would be taking its fans, and after the longest 2 years, we really want Nintendo to share with us what we can expect out of this brand-new title and get us even more hyped up for it’s release. The first Breath of the Wild scored an impressive 97 score on Metacritic, becoming branded as a must play title. It also managed to score Game of the Year for 2017 and a BAFTA when it released back in 2017!
During E3 2017 Nintendo announced that development team Retro Studios would be returning to its hit game series Metroid Prime with a 4th instalment. The internet literally exploded as this is a beloved Nintendo shooter, in which characters play as space explorer Samus. But since then, fans have had nothing, except a confirmation that the title was still in development. In 2018, the team went on to say that they would only show people something when they had “something that would wow people”. Now 3 years feels like a good amount of time to at least have something to show us and get us all excited for!
Its nearly impossible to see an article that is speculating game releases without seeing Silent Hill. That is because it’s easily been the game that has topped the rumour mill for the past year, with some pretty reliable ‘leakers’ informing fans of the games existence. The excitement comes due to a demo that was released by Hideo Kojima called P.T. which literally was a playable trailer for his new Silent Hill game. Although, this quickly became a pipe dream as Hideo and Konami had a disagreement which caused the two to split from working with each-other. If a Silent Hill game on its own is announced, I will be extremely excited as the past games have easily been some of the best horror games that I have played. Although, it would come with an ounce of nervousness, as the original creator, Keiichiro Toyama for the series left Konami to join his new development company. So, if a new game IS announced I would love to see it being directed by someone who will treat the series with the respect it deserves, as one of the grandfathers of horror games. (Ideally if Hideo Kojima could find a way to return to working on Silent Hills, that would indeed make me very much happy and eradicate all nervousness!)
