The Game Awards was a blast this year, complete with all of its classic-cheese, random guest appearances and exciting reveals! In a year like 2020, it was great to see games celebrated and brought to life in a night full of awards, new games, and more. Missed watching it live? Well that's why we're here! Here are the top announcements from The Game Awards 2020...

Before we begin, we want to stress that this is a preliminary download. We will jump into more detail about certain exciting titles in future articles, but for now we want to provide you with a run-down of major announcements at The Game Awards 2020. Who doesn't want to get to know exactly what we have in stall for us over the next couple years? Well, we don't know about you, but we were CERTAINLY not disappointed!

Century: Age of Ashes

Starting off we have Century: Age of Ashes, the new free-to-play dragon battle game from Playwing! This one looks fantastic, with its multiplayer dragon-battles, intense arena fights, and absolutely jaw-dropping graphics! Jump online in February 2021 to become the fiery ruler of the skies...

Sephiroth is Coming to Super Smash Bros

Whilst it may be no surprise that Nintendo has revealed yet another character coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we are still insanely excited for this one! Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7 is the perfect edition to the game - and is coming super soon! IN DECEMBER 2020!!!

Perfect Dark is Back!

It may only be a cinematic trailer, but we are excited all the same! We weren't necessarily expecting this one! The Nintendo 64 classic is gracing our big screens and whilst there is a still a long way to go until it reaches us (the game is still early in development), the first-person, jaw-dropping visuals has us in stitches!

Back 4 Blood or Is it... Left 4 Dead?

There's not much to say, and we are a little stunned by this announcement. Left 4 Dead is back! Or, we apologize, Back 4 Blood is coming! And its launch is pretty soon, all things considered... Prepare to jump into some (hopefully) fantastic first-person co-op zombie shooting in June 2021!

Dragon Age 4 Has Us in Absolute Stitches!

Dragon Age 4 has some of us in the office super excited - and we can't believe it has been 6 BLOODY YEARS since Dragon Age: Inquisition! Where has the time gone? Anyway, we got an amazing sneak peek in the new Cinematic Trailer for the title, and can't wait to return to this incredible world...

Monster Hunter Rise

Monster Hunter has always been a favorite of ours, with its fantastic action and grindy-character-building. The new trailer say the least! Let's just say there is a lot to be said, but Monster Hunter Rise could be a pretty amazing game, and there is an upcoming limited time demo announced for January 2021!! This could give us some insights...

We can't quite believe that a new Mass Effect has been left us all sitting in shocked silence as the new announcement trailer played out. Liara T'Soni has been a fan-favorite character for a long time and with this entry, she could be taking a central role! This is an amazing turn of events, and will hopefully be a turn-around for the series after a rather disappointing Mass Effect Andromeda. It is probably a ways off, but we can't wait to find out more!

And ALLLLLLLL the Others...

It was a big job to take note of all the big announcements at The Game Awards 2020, and that is simply because they were...huge! So many games were announced, or had announcements made about them, and we were glued to the screen for every one of them. That is even without all the awards!
