Game Awards 2022: The 5 big surprises to remember from the ceremony

Geoff Keighley's 2022 Game Awards took place tonight from 1:30 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. As expected, there were some huge announcements and some bombshells in the mix.

Let's go for a complete recap of the announcements made during the night , with a focus on the 5 most surprising world premieres.

Complete list of The Game Awards 2022

Yes, there was also a prize ceremony between the ads and the advertising pages 

Hades 2

A real nice surprise from Supergiant Games for the opening of this Game Awards 2022 ceremony, with Hades 2. This one for once we had not seen it coming and saw the immense qualities of its predecessor, it is with open arms that we welcome this announcement. So be careful, if you want to play 1.0 it won't be for now, since the rogue-like will be available in the course of 2023, but in early access at first.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor

Scheduled for March 17, 2023 , Star Wars Jedi Survivor will iterate on the excellent foundations of Souls-lite laid by its big brother. If we hope that the animations will be better linked than in the first episode, it is clear that it really sends heavy visually. We didn't think the game would arrive so soon either, so it's a great surprise to see it land on PC and consoles in just 3 months: we'll definitely be there!


From Bioshock creator Ken Levine, who went to set up his studio away from publisher 2K, Judas made quite an impression on us with its debut trailer . We can already see the inspiration of his previous license in Judas, but in a Cyberpunk context that seems to suit him perfectly. We do not yet know exactly how things will unfold, but if it is also inspired by Bioshock on the gameplay side, we will go on an immersive sim stuffed with different powers to properly deal with all the tense situations that the player faces. heroine will be exposed.

death stranding 2

We didn't really know what was hiding under Kojima's teaser in recent weeks and as expected we finally got our answer during these Game Awards 2022: Death Stranding is going to have the right to a direct sequel and that's great news , whatever his many detractors will say. Most of the main actors from the first game will therefore be back for a second expedition into the strange world of Sam Porter Bridges and the BBs, who seem to be in very bad shape in this first trailer . A question is asked at the end, just to set the tone: did we really all have to reconnect?

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon

No sequel to the excellent Sekiro or even DLC for Elden Ring for the next From Software, since it is finally the turn of the Armored Core license to take the spotlight . There's a little reference to soul games with these stories of ashes and a world in perdition, but for the rest it's a "big robot" atmosphere with over-armed mechanical beasts, in a trailer that clearly sends heavy stuff. It's just a cinematic scene, very pretty moreover, but it is impossible to determine what the gameplay will offer us for the moment : will it remain faithful to its origins (Armored Core V was released 10 years ago) ?
