VGX took place last night, packed full of new trailers and announcements. Rather than write separate stories for each of these, we just thought that we'd round up all of these below.
The first surprise of the night came in the shape of a Telltale and Gearbox collaboration with the former announcing that it'll be creating an episodic series named Tales from the Borderlands.
It'll still feature shooting, “but in a different way” as it’ll play like a Telltale game. If you've played The Walking Dead or other games from the studio, then you'll probably get the idea.
Telltale were not finished there, also revealing that it'll be releasing a Game of Thrones video game, although it will be set on the TV series and not the books.
Battles will be included within the game, although like the Borderlands title it'll be episodic and very much a Telltale style game.
Game Of Thrones will be released in 2014.
Another announcement which may interest some people is that Crystal Dynamics confirmed a reworked Tomb Raider for PS4 and Xbox One to be released in January 2014.
Tomb Raider Definitive Edition has been remade for both consoles by United Front and Crystal Dynamics. The game will include all new visuals and all of the previously released DLC.
Will this be enough to see people snap it up come next month?
News from Nintendo now, and an update on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which will launch in America on February 21, next year.
The big news here out with the release date, is that game will feature Cranky Kong as a playable character, joining Donkey, Diddy, Dixie and Cranky Kong. Exciting.
You can check out the new trailer below.
Quantum Break news was next, revealing the news we'd certainly already guessed, that the title will be a cover based third person shooter.
What's different about this one is that it'll include Time Powers, giving you the ability to freeze time, no doubt in order to take down enemies and solve puzzles. The playable characters are known as Beth and Jack, who are up against the evil Monarch Corporation.
It's difficult to say how well this one will go down, it certainly looks decent enough though.
A new trailer next, for South Park: The Stick of Truth which is a game long in development now. This trailer certainly gives a good idea of how the game is coming along ahead of it's March 2014 release.
It's just a pity that it seems to be skipping the new consoles. Although it will release on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Another new trailer came from Bungie for Destiny. The game is certainly shaping up well, although surprisingly it will not be released until September 9, 2014 with a beta kicking off sometime in the summer.
It can't be denied that this one is looking good, which will certainly please fans of PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Next up is another new trailer, this time for The Division, which releases for PS4, Xbox One and PC towards the end of 2014.
The Division uses an engine known as Snowdrop, which seems to result in some pretty spectacular visuals, as well as destructible environments, varied weather conditions and some pretty stunning lighting effects.
Sign us up, because we can't wait to play this one.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was the reveal of a new game from Joe Danger developer, Hello Games.
No Man’s Sky looks nothing like the previous game, but certainly looks like it could be pretty stunning.
“If you see the stars, those are real stars, they have their own planets around them, and you can go there,” said Sean Murray of Hello in describing the game. “It’s a science-fiction game, but it’s not like most other sci-fi games. We set out to make a game that challenges what it means to be next-gen, and what it means to be an indie title.
“It’s going to mess with people’s perceptions of Hello Games, and I have no idea how people will react. It’s different, and pretty much the furthest thing from what we’ve done before.”
We're interested already. Are you?
Techland was next to show off its game, open world Zombie title, Dying Light.
The demo shown takes place during the day, showing some bone breaking combat focusing on both melee and weapons. Interestingly, it's not just Zombie's you'll be up against as there will also be human enemies. Is this an open world Dead Island? Quite possibly.
Dying Light will be released on Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2014.
Interested in Thief? Then you'll love the new trailer released by Edios Montreal.
This trailer focuses on the game’s story, although also shows glimpses of gameplay, allowing us to see how Garrett navigates the shadows and takes down enemies.
Thief’s out on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in February. Does this already look like a 2014 GOTY contender to you? Edios probably hope so.
Next is the one we've been waiting for, a new trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The latest title in RPG series features an open world environment 30 times bigger than the previous games, plus it also looks prettier too.
The Witcher 3 is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC next year.
We seriously can't wait.
Yes it's probably the one Xbox One fans are waiting on most and Respawn had a few surprises in the shape of two new Titans.
First up is the Orge, a new heavy class type which looks like it'll certainly pack a rather large punch.
Adding to this is the Stryder class, al faster, more agile class of robot. This looks like one for those who like to rush into the action, cause some damage and then rush back out again before they get hurt.
Sounds like a plan.
Interestingly, Titanfall, which is arguably the biggest exclusive on Xbox One, will not make use of Kinect whatsoever.
Not sure what fans will make of that one.
That's about as much as we can take of VGX, which while an improvement on the VGA's, still seemed to have quite a few cringeworthy moments. Still at least there was new announcements and a little more information on the games we are looking forward to next year. So that's something, right?
