The Game Awards 2021: The Best Announcements!
19 December 2021 12:00 Games
The Game Awards is, by far, one of my favourite events of the year, especially when it comes to its game announcements. This year featured a lot of announcements during the ceremony, so let’s just get right into them!
Star Wars Eclipse
Star Wars Eclipse is a cinematic storytelling game set within the Star Wars universe, but it is being built by the developers of Detroit: Become Human. Quantic Dream and David Cage are behind the scenes here, so we’re expecting the game to be absolutely flawless! The cinematic trailer that was revealed showcased a huge amount of characters throughout many different planets and galaxies.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
This is the game that I want to play most. Rocksteady is back with a bang! Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League looks like the developers had a chaotic epiphany and concluded they needed to make this game. Truth be told, it was a great idea! This looks like everything that the Avengers game wanted to but could never be: a full freedom co-op game where you can play one of four amazing characters. Sign us up!
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2
Hellblade was a game that took my heart and broke it into many different little pieces, and now, it seems that the sequel is going to try and do the same – but on a much grander scale. Ninja Theory and their extreme talents for creating grotesque and gorgeous worlds and stories are on full display in this gameplay reveal trailer showcased at the 2021 Game Awards.
Alan Wake 2
Let’s go guys, we’re finally getting Alan Wake 2! Remedy Entertainment has finally given us a cinematic reveal, as well as an announcement that Alan Wake 2 is, in fact, arriving sometime soon in 2023 or in 2024! That’s all the news that I wanted personally – just to know that it is being made. Let’s hope that it lives up to the original and takes inspiration from games such as Control and Quantum Break.
This game absolutely took me by surprise. Wonder Woman is being developed by Monolith Productions, the creators of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. My question is whether the small teaser that they used as an announcement is going to be relevant to the game or not. Because, the way I see it, the game will have a nemesis system as well as a dramatic story, which is surely going to make it one of the best games in terms of gameplay. I’m still unsure, however, of how the story will pan out. Nonetheless, this is a huge announcement!
Yup, they’re giving Sonic the Zelda treatment! It may be a bit hard to believe but an open-world Sonic game in a realistic-looking world? I honestly don’t know how to feel about this. There is one thing for sure, though: this game looks absolutely breathtaking! From the small cinematic/gameplay reveal that we’ve seen here, it looks like a breath of fresh air – just like Breath of the Wild was.
