Wolfeye Studios Debut Their New Game Weird West At The Game Awards 2019 | Weird West is the debut title from Wolfeye Studios, founded by some of the team behind Dishonored and Prey.
The sequel to the critically acclaimed Ori And The Blind Forest has been a long time coming, Ori And The Will Of The Wisps. We got another look at it during The Game Awards 2019 with a new trailer, which you can watch below.
The Ori games are known for their imaginative and whimsical art style that looks even better in motion. You'll be going through a number of beautifully drawn environments and backgrounds while fighting through a several threats using different powers in a metroidvania-style adventure. The first Ori game was an emotional journey and we can expect as much from the sequel.
While Ori And The Will Of The Wisps was originally set to launch February 11, 2020, the trailer gave a slightly delayed release date of March 11, 2020.
One of the biggest reveals at The Game Awards was the announcement of Xbox Series X, which we now know is the name of Microsoft's next-generation console previously known as Xbox Scarlett. We also got a look at the console itself and learned a variety of details in an exclusive interview with Phil Spencer. Responses to the reveal have poured in from people across the industry, but what does the creator of Xbox think about it?
Seamus Blackley, who created the Xbox, said on Twitter that he was blown away by the announcement of Xbox Series X. "Well, f**k me. That's ridiculously glorious," Blackley said. "It's always weird for me when a new is announced. It's a combination of pride, nostalgia, geriatric-ness, and the sense of wonder and excitement that these devices produce. There are WHOLE WORLDS in that box. I love this."
Blackley hasn't always been this supportive of new Xbox products. Earlier this year, Blackley said he was so disgusted by the new Xbox deodorant and body wash that he wanted to start drinking heavily.
Xbox Series X releases in Holiday 2020 with Halo Infinite as one of its launch titles. The console's design makes it look like a PC tower, though Microsoft confirmed it can be oriented either vertically or horizontally. The console will ship with a new controller that features a Share button, which is something that the PlayStation 4 has had since 2013.
Microsoft also announced a new Xbox Series X game today in the form of Senua's Saga: Hellblade II from developer Ninja Theory.
As teased, Sony showcased an extended trailer for the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima during The Game Awards. The video gave us another look at the highly anticipated PS4 exclusive and capped off with the game's new release window: Summer 2020.
The trailer is an extended version of the one that premiered during the State of Play broadcast that aired earlier this week, featuring a mix of gameplay and cinematic footage. Developer Sucker Punch sheds more light on the trailer in a post on the PlayStation Blog.
"Today, we debuted a brand-new trailer that delves deeper into the identity our hero is forced to adopt in order to save his home: The Ghost," Sucker Punch wrote. "While Jin starts our game as a samurai, he'll learn skills and adopt tactics that are decidedly not samurai-like, and you can get a small taste in the footage we revealed today."
Jin is one of the only samurai to survive the Mongol invasion of the island of Tsushima in 1274. Sucker Punch promises to share more details about Ghost of Tsushima "in the months ahead." You can watch the latest trailer for the game above. If you'd like to secure your own copy of the title, be sure to check out our Ghost of Tsushima pre-order guide.
