The inaugural VGX Awards closed with another look at 2014’s most anticipated game, TitanFall. Respawn Entertainment delivered a pair of trailers that showcased two previously unseen mech classes from the game.

The Ogre is a slow and awkward killing machine that will include a slew of powerful weapons. Meanwhile, the Stryder will be a fleet-footed mech that can outrun almost anything on the battlefield.

TitanFall will be released for the PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on March 11, 2014. Hit the break to view both trailers. (more…)

VGX 2013 Trailer: No Man’s Sky

The biggest surprise… scratch that, the ONLY surprise… of this year’s VGX Awards was the “World Premiere” trailer for Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky. Created by a four-person team within the Joe Danger devleoper, No Man’s Sky is a procedurally generated exploration that wants to give us the land… and the ocean… and the sky… and outer space… and the whole universe beyond. There’s first-person shooting and space battles and sand worms and it looks crazy ambitious and no one has any idea what platforms its in development for or when it’ll be released.

Hello Games, you have my attention.

VGX 2013 Trailer: Destiny

Earlier this week, we learned that Destiny would be making its debut on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on September 9, 2014. Yesterday, Bungie brought a “World Premiere” trailer of their next game to the 2013 VGX Awards for all to see. Naturally, the trailer is suitably epic (THE MUSIC!) and gives us a nice glimpse at what to expect for their “shared world shooter” next year.

VGX 2013 Trailer: Thief

“Robes. Robes are always a bad sign.”

Garret, the star of Eidos Montreal’s Thief, doesn’t have a high opinion of cultists performing arcane rituals. And I can’t say I blame him. But you’ll definitely have a high opinion of this “World Premiere” trailer for the game, which debuted at last night’s VGX Awards.

Thief will be published by Square Enix on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 25, 2014. The game will also be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on the same date.

VGX 2013 Trailer: Broken Age

Double Fine’s Broken Age already had a pretty extensive voice cast (including Jack Black, Wil Wheaton, and Harmonix co-founder Alex Rigopulos) before the release of the “World Premiere” trailer at this year’s VGX Awards. But now we know that Elijah Wood, who is apparently a huge fan of point-and-click adventure games, will provide the voice of Shay, Broken Age’s main character. According to Tim Schafer, the decision to bring Wood aboard was originally worked out through Twitter.

The first half of Broken Age will be released through Steam’s Early Access program in January.
