The night of the Game Awards 2015

the game awards 2015

International shipments may take up to The Game Awards 2015 They have already finished and in addition to giving us the names of the key video games this year, they have been accompanied by announcements and firsts. This year it seems that these awards have been close, since we have had sounded launches and the expectations of the players were not exactly small.

The broadcast of the gala started at 2:30 in the morning -Spanish time- and the event itself did not begin until 3:00, although as appetizers we already had announcements such as the downloadable of Rise of the Tomb Raider or the new characters that will be added to the roster of warriors from Mortal Kombat X, and even a sadly deceased Satoru Iwatato whom Reggie fils-aime dedicated a few emotional words beyond the merely professional field. Also highlight one more episode of the soap opera Kojima - Konami, which in this new episode prohibited the creative from going to collect the awards he received Metal Gear Solid Vreportedly under legal pressure.


If we have to highlight a great winner in this 2015 Game Awards must be The Witcher 3, which managed to win the awards for game of the year, best dubbing and best developer, so the Poles of CD Projekt they should feel very comforted by these awards as a result of their hard work.

There was also room for surprises, as was the award for best multiplayer and shooter for Splatoon, something really unexpected considering the great competition that existed in those categories. On the other side of the coin, perhaps we can say that the big losers have been Bloodborne y Fallout 4, titles very loved by the public but that have not won in any category.

As we told you, we also had several interesting announcements for this event. Psychonauts 2 it was a pleasant surprise, no doubt, and the Tim Schafer appeared to request financing and bring to fruition the continuation of a cult title, which, curiously, has sold more in the last five years than in the first five years after its launch in 2005.

As for the new characters of Mortal Kombat X, they will be a hybrid between a xenomorph and a tarkata, Leatherface -from the film saga The Texas Chainsaw Massacre-, the plump teacher Bo 'Rai Cho y Tri-Borg, a cyborg who will take the abilities of Cyrax y Sector, just as the character of Chameleon with the ninjas. Downloadable content of Rise of the Tomb Raider Will be called Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch and will be released in early 2016, while Nathan Drake will be on everyone's lips again March with the launch exclusively for PlayStation 4 de Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

Telltale Games did not disappoint and announced, in addition to The Walking Dead: Michonne, a game in his style based on the universe of bat Man, which could be extremely interesting.

We must also highlight Rock Band VR, which will make the leap to virtual reality in collaboration with Oculus VR, with the premise of a unique experience: players will be able to feel like a real star when they step on the stage and watch the audience in front of their eyes. The remastering of Shadow Complex, that metroidvania philosophy game released in 2009 for Xbox 360, but that will come with the technical face lift on duty.

Other titles that were seen were Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn -with cameo of the aforementioned included-, Lego Marvel Avengers, Quantum Break y Star Citizen. Although more captivating was being able to contemplate the first gameplay of Far Cry Primal, which still looked a little green and the release date, 23 of February 2016, it comes over to Ubisoft.
