The Game Awards 2019: 6 things we absolutely need to see at this year's biggest award show for gaming
The Game Awards 2019 is created and hosted by Geoff Keighley every year and is one of the most prominent Gaming Awards show for the Video Game Industry. This year's award show would be an extensive celebration of video games and fans can expect a lot of game announcements and world premiers. Considering that this year marks the fifth anniversary of The Game Awards, gamers might be in for a real treat.
Here are 6 things we absolutely need to see at The Game Awards this year:
#6. Bayonetta 3 game play reveal and a release date
Platinum Games' Bayonetta 3 is one of Nintendo's most highly anticipated game that has been in dark for quite some time. Platinum Games which is widely known for Nier Automata, released Astral Chain, a hack n slash action-adventure game, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
Astral Chain received a positive response from critics and fans alike. One could speculate that Platinum's other big project Bayonetta 3 was delayed internally because of the game without any update of when the game was going to be released.
Bayonetta 3 was first revealed two years ago at The Game Awards 2017 with a short teaser only showing off the game's logo. Nintendo and Platinum Games' have been pretty silent about the game's development since then. Hopefully that's going to change very soon as The Game Awards 2019 is not far.
#5. Live performance of Death Stranding by CHVRCHES
Live musical performance of popular scores from the year's biggest games have become a ritual at The Game Awards. Every year fans get to witness live performance from the greatest musicians from across the globe.
Last year, Casey Edwards and Ali Edwards perform Devil Trigger from Devil May Cry 5, and the music of Red Dead Redemption 2. This year, Death Stranding has been quite a musical affair, featuring a lot of original tracks from Khalid, Silent Poets and Low Roar and the game's main track "Death Stranding" by CHVRCHES stands out.
#4. A new trailer for Ghost of Tsushima
Sucker Punch Productions' next big open-world game Ghost of Tsushima is going to be the last big PS4 exclusive title from Sony before we venture into the era of PS5. However, information regarding the game has been really thin and fans haven't seen any footage of the game since E3 2018.
Ghost of Tsushima was initially planned for a summer 2020 release, but with the recent The Last of Us 2 that is releasing on 29th May 2020, its highly likely that the community will not see Ghost of Tsushima hit the shelves before August 2020.
With no PlayStation Experience event planned for this year, The Game Awards 2019 is the only major event Sony will get to reveal any information or game play footage for Ghost of Tsushima.
