The fourth annual Game Awards wrapped with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes home the honors of the year game. However, during the roughly three hours leading up to the grand finale, The Game Awards felt more like a key note of winter E3. From new revealed games, to new trailers of highly anticipated titles, The Game Awards showed many things to get excited about. Here are all the biggest game stories announced during the proceedings.
Owlchemy Labs joked & # 39; Vacation Simulator & # 39;
During the previous show, Owlchemy Labs revealed his follow-up to his 2016 virtual reality success, Job Simulator Vacation Simulator presents the same visual style, comedic storytelling and level of interactivity as his predecessor . The game will send you to a beach resort, but it is not clear how much you can rest after doing all those daily tasks, since computers still bother you.
Owlchemy Labs CEO Alex Schwartz rightly described the reasoning behind the continuation. "After your work, then you're on vacation, it just makes sense," he said.
No release date provided, but Vacation Simulator will be available for PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Next software the game is … & # 39; Shadows Die Twice & # 39;
The next Software game was only briefly mocked, but left a bloody impression. A bloody rope is wound around what appears to be a bone. The words "Shadows Die Twice" appear on a black screen. It is not clear if that is indeed the name of the game, or if it is, shall we say, the [Blood Rover 2] often speculated that fans have been clamoring for? It is too early to know for sure, but you can be sure, From Software has another dark and gritty game in development.
