The Game Awards are an excellent opportunity for developers to get recognition and gamers to see what extra options they could exploit to have some fun during the holidays. The 2018 edition is just over a week away and we are excited to see which title will become the next Game of the Year.
Aside from that, this year’s awards will also have some thrilling announcements. In fact, Geoff Keighley revealed that we can expert over 10 new releases to be officially announced at The Game Awards. Before you start asking which games we can expect, allow us to tell you that we do not know any details and that everything will be a surprise for us, too.
According to the news published in the recent several days, we could expect the next instalment in the Alien series. The name of the title will be Alien: Blackout and it is apparently set for The Game Awards. That leaves one title less for guessing, but still plenty of room to speculate about other reveals.
In 2017, we’ve had the chance to see some exciting announcements. Soul Calibur VI thrilled us all while some releases still haven’t hit the digital shelves. For example, Valve’s In The Valley of Gods still doesn’t have a release date. You should always make some room for the chance of new reveals being just updates to already released games.
