Armored Core 6 Fires of Rubicon
I wasn't familiar with this franchise, and if you are tempted to scroll past as you think "generic mech shooter" trust me on this. Watch this trailer. It looks epic as hell.
Lords of the Fallen
Lords of the Fallen hadn't caught my interest much before, as it looks like another dark fantasy souls like, but to be honest this trailer really succeeded in capturing my attention.
This may just be a cinematic trailer, but oh does it manage to excite interest. Hopefully the game manages to be this epic.
Wayfinder is a new fantasy MMO that is actually the closest of all these new games to release as it comes out just next week. It looks pretty derivative to me, as just another game redoing all the trends of the last few years, but I will give it a try potentially.
The game I was most excited to see just absolutely delivered on an exciting new trailer. I just can't wait to get back into Star Wars again with this sequel to our GOTY 2019.
Destiny 2 Lightfall
Destiny 2 stands as an example to other live services as to one thing specifically they do absolutely fantastically. They make each new world and expansion look and feel drastically different. When games like Apex and even sometimes Fortnite look the same season after season, Destiny 2 really delivers in new fresh experiences. The lunar surface, the gothic green horror and swamps of Witch Queen, and new the cyberpunk neon world of Lightfall all feel so different. I can't wait for February.
My personal biggest surprise of the night was Hades 2. Hades took the gaming world by storm in 2019 with almost every major outlet putting it in or at the top of their top lists. Hades 2 is getting its much welcomed sequel.
At first I thought this was a sequel to Superliminal, our INDIE GOTY 2018. With a similar art style and similar perception manipulating gameplay I was on the edge of my seat with this one. When it turned out to be a different game from a different developer I was a little dissappointed, however, Superliminal was so revolutionary I am ok if it inspires a new sub-genre of games like this one. It looks incredible with a "photograph" focused spin on the concept.
