This month’s highlight is today’s Game Awards 2018 since Sony skipped the PlayStation Experience event this year. And what we’re all waiting for is the big reveal of many anticipated games, such as the rumored Borderlands 3, probably a DLC for Shadow of the Tomb Raider and the game Ashen made by indie developer A44.
A “Ton of Games” Go Live Today
Moreover, the most important thing about today’s event is that many of the games presented will go live right after the event is finished, which is excellent news since holidays are coming and gamers can spend more time playing their favorite games.
According to the creator and organizer of the event, Geoff Keighley, we should expect “a ton of games” to go live tonight:
The core two-to-three hour awards show, I think we have a pretty good model for that. But what could we be doing after or before the show? There are tens of millions of people watching around the world – what do they do afterwards?
So, Keighley explains that gamers usually want to play games after watching such an event:
The thing we found is that people just want to go play games, and you’ll see this year that there are a ton of new games that are available inside of the show and afterwards. The Game Awards is going to be a great night, but there is going to be a ton to do online afterwards. Smash Bros. is coming out, there are going to be a ton of games that will be announced in the show that will go live that night.
We canot wait to see if Borderlands 3 will be revealed at the event tonight, as it was heavily rumored and hinted so far.
