I can’t tell you how happy I am with the Summer Game Fest announcement from a few days ago. In an unprecedented time, it is so awesome to know that we will still get opportunities to see the latest and greatest from our favorite gaming platforms. I’m saddened by the cancellations of our normal summer gaming events, but grateful that we will still get announcements. A few big Game Fest announcements have already hit the news, so let’s recap!
Last of Us II Trailer
Today, Naughty Dog announced a brand new trailer will arrive tomorrow, May 6th, at 10 am EST/7 am PST. It feels like it will be some sort of launch trailer since the game will arrive next month. Make sure to tune into their social media channels and Youtube channel and let us know what you think!
More news today from WB Games, as they announced some new info for Mortal Kombat 11. You can check the teaser here, but it looks like some future DLC will be announced tomorrow at 6 am PST.
Today, Xbox announced a plan to hold monthly Inside Xbox shows for 2020. These shows will no doubt keep fans updated on all things dealing with Xbox Series X as it prepares to launch this holiday. The first show is on May 7th at 8 am PST. The May 7th show will focus on revealing next-gen information from 3rd party partners. We know we will see footage from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and hopefully a few more games as well. And before you freak out, there will be a show this summer showing information from 1st party studios. Keep in mind that we don’t know how long the shows will last or exactly how much they will show, so keep your expectations down just in case (see the below tweets from Aaron Greenberg). No matter what, we can look forward to Xbox news every month! You can watch Inside Xbox on Twitch, Mixer, or Youtube.
EA Play is returning! Oops, sorry, it’s actually EA Stay and Play according to their announcement. The announcement mentions world premieres and news, so we can look forward to those announcements on June 4th at 4 pm PST. More info can be found here.
Also today, the good folks at CD Projekt Red announced something called Night City Wire for June 11th. No other details at this time, but hopefully it means we’ll see some sweet, sweet Cyberpunk footage. Follow their socials for more info!
