Hogwarts Legacy, Sonic Frontiers… The stars of the night

Hogwarts Legacy: Hogwarts Legacy It was quite a winner to win the title of great protagonist of the evening. The game in the Harry Potter universe was expected in turn during this launch party. We knew he was there and hoped to see him reassure players after the announcement of his postponement. Unfortunately, there is no detailed presentation of the game from Avalanche and Warner, but a new trailer focused on black magic and the dark side of the school of wizardry, From the Forbidden Forest to the Chamber of Secrets. On the trail of mysteries linked to the founders of Hogwarts, danger is omnipresent and can take many forms. To deal with Inferi and other terrifying creatures, sometimes you need make decisive magical decisions. But beware, the Unforgivable Curses are unforgivable for a reason and using them will have serious consequences.

The latter will not only allow you to have access to new cosmetics, but also the game in advance with early access 72 hours before the release of the game. Also note that pre-orders for Hogwarts Legacy will be open. starting August 25.

But a small trailer is not enough to bring all the light on itself. During these almost two hours of conference, Hogwarts Legacy had to share the spotlight, especially with Sonic Frontiers. The open world game of the little blue hedgehog was especially highlighted. Revealing familiar levels and more dynamic gameplay than before, Sonic Frontiers has fared better, much to our delight. This nice presentation ended with the confirmation of the release date that had been leaked shortly before the event: on November 8, 2022.

Hoyoverse once again had a whole segment and started with its flagship game: Genshin Impact. The one we compared to his debut in Breath of the Wild revealed it to us its version 3.0. On the show: a new region (Sumeru), a new item (the Dendro), and new characters (Collei and Tighnari) in particular. And then it was Honkai: Star Rail’s turn to show itself in a new light. With its new trailer, this RPG reveals a much darker side than usual. No new information on the horizon, but enough to intrigue curious players a bit more.

Dead Island 2, Lies of P… The rumors were true

Yesterday we shared a good part of the rumors about this launch party. As for Hideo Kojima, he did make an appearance… but only to tell us about his podcast (brain structure). Otherwise, the leaks turned out to be true. Against all odds, Dead Island 2 has made its big comeback with a short trailer and gameplay session. which is reassuring for fans. It must be said that after its announcement in 2014, the game was entitled to chaotic years of development. He is also in his third studio, Dambuster Studios. The latter is obviously the correct one because Dead Island 2, a great Arlesian in the world of video games, has even found a release date: February 3, 2023 on PC, PS5, Xbox Series, PS4 and Xbox One.

Confirmed earlier in the year, the title had revealed a possible release date, synopsis, and images.

But they have been validated: The adventures of Aru, Octavio and Fran will begin on October 21 on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch and PC. Pre-orders are already released. Keep in mind that if Gearbox and not Telltale is in charge of the project, the narrative game studio wasn’t left out last night. He gave us a preview of The Expanse: A Telltale Series.

Going back to the rumours, we can also mention Lies of P, the Souls-Like in the universe of Pinocchio. Announced in May 2021, this strange game had intrigued many people before being relatively quiet…until recently. In fact, it was at the center of rumors that it was available from day one on Xbox Game Pass. The information had been more or less confirmed by a picture of the Xbox booth at gamescom, but now it’s official! We also got to see a bit more gameplay, which isn’t surprising since a demo of the game can be played in the living room on the Xbox side.

There were still some surprises that we had not seen coming during this night. In fact, it started with one of them. Former Grand Theft Auto producer Leslie Benzies and his team came to show us the first images of Everywhere, “an open world AAA game with a multiplayer experience featuring an epic narrative”. Unveiled earlier in the year, the Dune-universe survival MMO got a bit more showing off, including the search for an official name. Funcom’s game will be called Dune Awakening. We will have to be satisfied with this simple information because no release date has been revealed.

The new game from the creators of Subnautica has been presented as expected. Responding to the name of Moonbreaker, it is an authentic strategy board game in a video game version, all in a science fiction universe. Early access will start on September 29 if you’re curious. More surprising was the announcement of a game published by Quantic Dream. Signed Parallel Studio, Under The Waves also has an air of Subnautica, although it will be more focused on the narrative. It will land in 2023 on PS5, Xbox Series, PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
