The Game Awards 2019 featured a cavalcade of big announcements, including the reveal of the Xbox Series X, a new game from PlayerUnknown, and an expanded trailer for Ghost of Tsushima.
Although The Game Awards is primarily designed to recognise the year’s best video games, it’s also primarily designed as a marketing and advertising opportunity for the industry’s biggest publishers. And this year was no different.
In between the various award presentations, viewers were treated to a slew of new game and hardware reveals. Highlights included the full unveiling of the next Xbox console, a trailer for Hellblade II, a tease for PlayerUnknown’s latest project, and a closer look at Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima. There were also new trailers for Final Fantasy VII, No More Heroes III and Humankind.
Here’s a quick rundown of everything announced at The Game Awards 2019. Visit our news page for the more on the biggest stories.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
