The 2022 Game Awards are over, and a slew of trailers and gameplay videos came with them. We rounded up some of the best here! Whether you’re a PC fan or a console pleb, there was something for everyone. Even Rabbi Bill Clinton got some love at one point!
If you missed the nearly three-hour event, GameSpot has the whole presentation on its YouTube channel. Now, let’s look at the games.
Norman Reedus is back as the post-apocalyptic Amazon delivery man Sam in Death Stranding 2 from Kojima Productions. The teaser trailer for the game shows off an aged Sam working alongside Fragile (Léa Seydoux). Unfortunately, the trailer is only a cinematic; no gameplay is shown. Instead, we’re given what looks to be more backstory on Fragile and a new mobile base of operations.
Final Fantasy XVI will drop on June 22nd, and The Game Awards gave us a look at cinematics and gameplay for the latest installment of the long-running RPG franchise.
We recently learned that Kevin Conroy’s last Batman performance might be in Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. During the Game Awards, a new trailer for the game focused mainly on the Dark Knight. The trailer concludes with a “Thank You” to the late voice actor.
Supergiant Games’ Hades is getting a sequel! The roguelike dungeon crawler’s trailer starts with an incredible animated sequence before rolling into some gameplay footage. Unfortunately, the Hades II trailer didn’t have a launch date attached.
Cal has returned. Now a Jedi Knight, the former Padawan-in-hiding is on a crusade to bring down the Empire. Gameplay footage for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor shows off new force moves, beast riding, wampas, proto-dark troopers, battle droids, teammate combat, and new lightsaber upgrades.
The sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order will launch on March 17th.
A new Transformers game is on the way, and thankfully it’s not another trading card game or G1-inspired cash-grab. No, this title takes place after a devastating alien invasion of Earth. Transformers: Reactivate allows players to take control of a rebuilt Autobot who must help the surviving humans.
Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores is an expansion that will launch on April 19th for PS5. Aloy will be spending some time in the Hollywood hills. The cinematic trailer shows a few iconic California locations and a massive new threat.
BioShock’s spiritual successor Judas is heading to PS5, XBOX, and PC … sometime. Regardless, Ken Levine’s new FPS looks like it’s taking all the things we loved about BioShock and putting it in outer space.
It appears that Bayonetta‘s next game will still be exclusive to Nintendo Switch. The newest title, Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, gives us some backstory on the Umbra Witch. The gameplay differs from what we’re used to in the series, emphasizing puzzle-solving and demon-summoning combat more. The game will arrive on March 17th.
Now the trailer you’ve all been waiting for! Party Animals! After months of silence from the development team, this cute brawler will make its way to XBOX and PC in 2023!
Oh, and that random guy who got up on stage with Hidetaka Miyazaki and the Elden Ring team? He was arrested, according to Geoff Keighley.
The individual who interrupted our Game of the Year moment has been arrested.
