The Game Critics Awards has handed out their annual “Best of E3” honors for this year’s show, and unsurprisingly, Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was named “Best of Show.” The massive open-air game also took home awards for “Best Console Game” and “Best Action/Adventure Game.”
Even though Battlefield 1 secured the most nominations, only one other game was able to collect more than a single award, and that was Civilization VI, which was named “Best PC Game” and “Best Strategy Game.” This year’s “Special Commendation for Graphics” went to Sony’s God of War reboot.
All told, 13 games (and the PlayStation VR headset, which won for “Best Hardware”) were honored this year by the Game Critics Awards. The full list of winners can be found after the break. (more…)
Battlefield 1 blows away the competition with five nominations from Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2016
The Game Critics Awards has announced their annual Best of E3 nominations, and DICE’s Battlefield 1 has asserted its greatness with five nominations, including one for “Best of Show.” Battlefield 1’s other nominations include “Best Console Game,” “Best PC Game,” “Best Action Game,” and “Best Online Multiplayer.”
Five other games will compete with the historical shooter for top honors including Dishonored 2, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Sea of Thieves, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Titanfall 2. With four nominations apiece, Dishonored 2 and Horizon: Zero Dawn will surely provide some stiff competition for Battlefield 1.
The Game Critics Awards will announce the winners for Best of E3 2016 next Tuesday, July 5. A complete list of this year nominees can be found after the break. (more…)
Sony started their E3 Press Conference with a bang this year by showing off footage from the next entry in the God of War franchise. Previously known as God of War 4, we might be heading for reboot territory as the PS4 game was announced as just “God of War.”
In the trailer, Kratos appears to be in retirement and teaching his son how to hunt, when they are set upon by a group of creatures. Although much older, Kratos shows that he’s still got it. The game also appears to take on the much-rumored Norse mythology, as opposed to the Greek mythology of past God of War games.
Enjoy the trailer.
After a surprise announcement during this weekend’s PlayStation Experience event, it’s probably safe to assume that we’ll have to wait quite a while for God of War 4‘s release date. But it looks like we’ll have to endure quite a long wait just to hear more about the game.
Speaking to IGN, Sony Santa Monica’s Cory Barlog revealed that he expected to share more information about the game in “the next year or two.” He also confirmed that the game would not be a prequel like 2013’s God of War: Ascension.
However, one thing Barlog wouldn’t confirm was if Kratos would be the star of God of War 4. According to IGN, he was “unwilling to answer,” whatever that means.
Can you have a God of War game without Kratos? I’m not sure, but we might find out in a year or two.
Sony has a ton of presentations planned for this weekend as part of their PlayStation Experience and not all of today’s big news was dished out at the Keynote. Cory Barlog just dropped a major announcement at the end of the God of War Retrospective panel. The God of War II director got up on stage and said, “Yes, we are making another God of War.”
The news was then gleefully confirmed for the rest of us via Sony Santa Monica’s Twitter account. However, the news was quickly pulled and replaced by this tweet:

Too late Cory, the cat’s out of the bag. We know that God of War 4 (or whatever it ends up being called) is in development and its coming to the PS4. Hopefully we’ll learn more about Kratos’ next game soon.
