The Game Awards 2023 – all the major announcements

  • The Game Awards 2023 was last evening and South African gamers had to stay up from 02:30 in the morning to check out who were the biggest and best games of the year.
  • The event also brought a whole bunch of trailers and announcements from many upcoming games from 2024.
  • A new Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi, Hello Game’s next title Light No Fires, a brand new Monster Hunter, and many more surprises emerged from the Game Awards 2023.

The Game Awards 2023 was held last evening, and streamed to the world across every feasible platform that allows streaming. Baldur’s Gate 3 won the top prize last night, Game of the Year, and several other awards like Best Multiplayer, and Best Community Support. You can check out the full list of winners here.

Part of the festivities included many high-profile announcements for the latest games from developers all over the world. While we didn’t get to see anything new about the upcoming DLC for Elden Ring, and fans are currently in full meltdown on X because Titanfall 3 wasn’t announced, we did get a look at a new AAA Monster Hunter, as well as the next entry in the Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi series.

Sean Murray was on stage and was selling the new game from Hello Games, another procedural generation title called Light No Fires, with Murray calling the game the “first real open-world game” since players can travel through a full, continuous planet without any walls or boundaries.

While not a peep was heard about Marvel’s upcoming Wolverine game, we did get a fresh look at Marvel Blade, the first time the daywalker hits consoles since Blade (1998) on the PlayStation. The cinematic trailer sets the tone of the game, but the biggest piece of information from it is that it’s being developed by Arkane Studios and is being published by Bethesda, whose logo popping up at the start of the trailer is almost as terrifying as a vampire lunging for your bare neck.

A new Jurassic Park game was announced, with the subtitle “Survival.” The trailer sets up the narrative and the tone, in which you are a survivor of the disaster following the events of the first Jurassic Park film. The last bit of the trailer shows off gameplay, and it’s giving Dino Crisis. The Survival title is a hint that it probably a modern Resident Evil-like, as in it’s a first-person survival horror game, and we’re all here for it.

We also got a look at the next title from Hideo Kojima, called OD. Many were expecting a sequel to Death Stranding, but it seems this new game is something different. No actual gameplay was shown, instead we got close-up shots of CG animated actors like Sophia Lillis performing monologues and looking quite dour. Kojima describes the new game as “a new type of media.”

Also! After 15 years we finally, finally get a look at the sequel to World of Goo.

While there weren’t too many internet-breaking announcements at the Game Awards this year (the ‘in-case of Bloodborne 2 glass’ remains unshattered), we basically got a look at what we can expect the gaming landscape to be like next year, and it’s a mixed bag.
