Zelda Expansion, Death Stranding and other hype titles at The Game Awards

The Game Awards, an event that looks like this, took place a short time ago and, like any gaming event, it was filmed with trailers and announcements. What is the biggest ad, ask yourself? This is probably a link between the sudden release of a new extension for Zelda: Breath of the Wild and a teaser for the forthcoming project of From Software, the creators of Dark Souls and Of haematogenous origin .

Well, let's be honest – a new extension of Zelda, available now is pretty much the only thing that matters in the world. All the rest can wait.


The Champions Ballade seems to be a follow-up to the original story, with the four champions working to defeat "the beast" once and for all. More importantly, there is new horse armor that allows you to teleport your mount to your location instantly. New weapons and armor are waiting, and it also seems that there are a number of new sanctuaries and bigger dungeons. Oh, and you get an old bike. I would play now if I had not left my cartridge Zelda in the United States when I crossed the pond for Disrupt Berlin. What was I thinking ?!

Less immediate but perhaps ultimately more intriguing is the minimal trailer of Software for its new game, which has no name but which has a slogan: "Shadows Die Twice". Some speculate that it is a restart of Shadow Tower one of the first From games, but others point out that not only is this 39; is a line of the revered ninja series Tenchu ​​ but music and writing suggest a Japanese theme. Nobody knows exactly what is the horrible material on the display, but I guess it is a grapple made from a bone.

The next train is Death Stranding the next project of Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear . In the longest and most substantial look at the game, which does not say much, we see a Norman Reedus dressed in space trying in vain to hide from the invisible and enigmatic pursuers who seem to be attracted to … the pain? Life? Anything but the bottled baby who later finds himself inside Reedus.


We are really not wiser than we were before, but Kojima 's eye for the weird and dramatic is clear. It may be rather derailed, but often our most interesting artists are.

Some other note trailers: The developers of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter a terrifying mystery, show their latest project, Witchfire .


But if you were expecting another dark and slow affair, the developers would like to remind you that they were also behind the excellent Painkiller and underestimated Bulletstorm . It looks like a high energy shoot-em-up in a strange and mysterious world.

I am particularly interested in Campo Santo In the Valley of the Gods in which it seems that you and a partner (probably computer controlled) infiltrate a grave not to attack it, but to document it with an old movie camera.


Maybe you're not as antique as me, but it sounds like a very interesting little adventure.

Other things to note: Bayonetta 3 was teased in an exclusive Switch, with remasters of 1 and 2. This should appeal to hardcore action fans who might not be satisfied with the wide selection of games.
