Lots of gamers dreams came true at the yesterday’s Video Game Awards. Besides the announcements of the already mentioned titles, Resistance 3, Thor, Forza Motorsport, Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat have also debuted with exclusive trailers.
Most of the announced games are scheduled for holiday 2011 release (Diablo III is also rumored for late 2011 launch). I’m sure lots of pockets would turn empty then (including mine) so I suggest we start saving right now.
The conclusion of the Mass Effect series will finally take us to Earth, where the Reapers are destroying the mankind. Commander Shepard must gather an army strong enough to defeat the Reapers and save the Earth. The targeted platforms are PC, X360 and PS3 and the release will be in time for the 2011 holiday season (yes, a good year from now).
The PlayStation 3 exclusive Uncharted is back for a third installment with Drake’s Deception. Naughty Dog promises even better graphics, visual effects and multiplayer. The game will launch on 1 November only on PS3.
Guillermo Del Toro is preparing a new horror game with Volition and THQ. It’s called INSANE, which also describes the release timeframe – it’s scheduled for 2013.
The other three trailers are of Batman: Arkham City, Mortal Kombat and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For even more trailers, you can visit the GameTrailers VGA page.
