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.
