The Game Awards 2018 News: Dragon Age 4, Mortal Kombat 11, Far Cry: New Dawn, New Obsidian RPG

The 2018 Game Awards were held yesterday in Los Angeles and we got a lot of news from it. Show organizer Geoff Keighley promised ten or more new game announcements, along with updates about games that have already been announced, and he delivered. Here in this post we will discuss the biggest news from the show, giving you a quick overview of the most important announcements.

In the show we knew that the next Far Cry game, which was known to be the post-apocalyptic Far Cry New Dawn, would be announced at the event, while the next RPG Fallout: New Vegas studio Obsidian is also expected would appear at the awards event. Although both showed that, a new Alien game titled Alien: Blackout was also reported during the awards show, but it was MIA. We also have some great Fortnite news.

In addition to the announcements, numerous awards were also awarded for celebrating excellent games that were released in 2018. We have an overview of all prize winners here.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order

A new Nintendo Switch game from 2019, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, is exclusive to the Nintendo hybrid system. The game has a "huge cast" of Marvel characters from The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men and other franchises. It has a cell-shaded appearance and seems to be a beat-em-up. Oh, Thanos is also in the game.

Travel to the Savage Planet

Typhoon Studio, the new team consisting of developers working on Assassin's Creed and Batman: Arkham Asylum, announced a new game: Journey to the Savage Planet. In 2019, the game is an up-beat adventure game that focuses on exploring a hostile alien planet with little or no resources. Although the concept is the most important material for another battle-generous or survival game, the developers state that it is purely an adventure game. We are still a bit in the dark about what we can expect from the game, but the developers explained in a press release what the essence of the game is.

Crash Team Racing Remaster

Crash Bandicoot made a big comeback in 2017 with the N-Sane Trilogy, a collection of remasters from the first three games.

Rebranded Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, the classic PS1 kart racer is brought into modern times with updated graphics, online play and customization options. The remaster is handled by Beenox, a studio that is best known for its work on the Spider-Man and Call of Duty games. Expect to play on June 21, 2019.
