Even though this year’s The Game Awards 2017 wrapped just a few hours ago, the buzz that they created will last over the several few days – maybe even months. With that, we’ve looked back at some of the best ones that we’ve seen over the show, and although some fans may be wondering where certain ones are (like, for instance, Witchfire), we can’t help but think that these following trailers were certainly the most noteworthy!
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Champions Ballad DLC
We were already excited enough for the second expansion to the world of Breath of the Wild, reintroducing four familiar characters as new champions within the series. But then we found out that we were able to get actual Horse Armor for Epona. Not to mention the fact that Link would have access to the awesome motorcycle. These two new additions alone make us excited for the expansion. Hell, we can play it tonight! Excuse us.
As if the news that we’re getting both Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 for Nintendo Switch in February wasn’t good enough news, Nintendo went and made our way by announcing yet another collaboration with Platinum Games, promising that the bewitching gun-heeled heroine would make a return for a third go-around. When it’ll arrive is anyone’s guess, but the fact we’ll be seeing a new Bayonetta adventure for Switch down the road is just the news that we needed.
Death Stranding Cinematic Trailer
It’s honesty time – we have no idea what’s going on in the newest trailer for Death Stranding. Kojima’s storytelling is definitely far from what we were expecting here, and it’s all so cryptic, that it’s probably going to be nothing short of brilliant once the final game arrives. One thing is for sure, though – it’s unforgettable, and the involvement of Norman Reedus is way off the charts. More, please.
Soul Calibur VI Trailer
UPDATE: Replaced with a working trailer again.
A tale of swords and souls, eternally retold. Soul Calibur is back with a vengeance for the sixth go around, featuring even more play tactics than ever before, including parries and dodges, along with the swordplay we’ve come to originally expect from the series. Plus, it looks great, and there are guest stars aplenty that are sure to come to each version. But, c’mon, Bandai Namco…no Switch version?!
From Software Mystery Trailer
By popular request, we're throwing this one in, though there's not much to see. The creators of Dark Souls and Bloodborne have teased their next project, though we're not entirely sure what the heck it is. Bloodborne sequel? A new game entirely? That Dark Souls remaster that we've been seeing hints of? Whatever it is, we may see more of it tonight during the PSX presentation. Fingers crossed.
Metro: Exodus Trailer
Even though the trailer premiered later in the show, the latest look at 4A Games’ Metro: Exodus proved to be worth the wait, with a cool post-apocalyptic world to explore, along with plenty of harrowing terrors to take on as you try to stay in one piece. This looks to be the coolest Metro game yet, and we have yet to see even more gameplay – but we probably will soon enough, as Exodus nears its autumn 2018 release date.
World War Z
We’re not quite certain why Paramount took so long to release a game adaptation of its Brad Pitt film World War Z, but considering that we haven’t had a Left 4 Dead game in quite a while, its timing couldn’t be better. The title promises a whole bunch of zombie shooting action, along with co-op support that’s sure to be a hit when the game rolls around next year. We’ll see just how many of the undead pile up.
Finally, we’re not sure what’s happening in the latest project from Stanley Parable creator William Pugh and Rick and Morty’s Justin Roiland, but it looks absolutely hilarious, and is loaded with all kinds of cursing. Just watch it and you’ll see what we mean. It’s definitely unlike anything you’ve seen before.
