  • Geoff Keighley in his first ever Game Awards appearance

Despite becoming the trendiest game of the year, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds seemingly went home empty handed at The Game Awards this year.

A video game adaptation of World War Z was just announced at The Game Awards 2017.

"The Legend of 'Zelda: Breath of the Wild" got three big wins at The Game Awards.

Quite a few massive announcements and trailers wowed the audience and tantalized gamers. Not only did the trailer show the map in action the developers unexpectedly announced it would be available to play at midnight Thursday on the test servers.

It's not a huge selection, but the price, as they say, is right. The game will be available in 2019 and it will take place in Egypt.

The celebrated fighting franchise had been MIA since 2012, but to the surprise of many, Soulcalibur VI was revealed with a 2018 release on PS4, Xbox One and PC.


Fans have been waiting for the Champions Ballad DLC pack to come out for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, following the previously released pack for the game.

Owlchemy Labs, the creator studio of Job Simulator, has reveled a new VR title, Vacation Simulator. Or did it? Although the game earned several nominations and a much publicized map reveal, the one award Battlegrounds actually won that night went unannounced; The award for Best Multiplayer Game.

These are the news we had during the Game Awards 2017.

Serving as both the final game of the Wii U (not the literal last game published for the system, that accolade goes to Cars 3: Driven to Win) and the launching off point for the Nintendo Switch, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the big victor of the evening, taking home the biggest Game of the Year award. These trailers were mainly the new videos showcasing the upcoming games of 2018 and 2019.
