Summer Game Fest had a pretty great event kick-off this week, and so we had to announce it as our Video of the Month. Summer Game Fest is all about showcasing upcoming and newly released games, giving out awards for developers, and a lot more about the state of the industry. They certainly delivered during this year’s online show with the announcement of several new game titles!
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
They first announced the new game by 2K and Gearbox, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. From Borderlands’ Tiny Tiny as a spinoff, the game is a fantasy-based shooter set for the latest PlayStation console and PC.
“Players will build, customize and controller their own characters, and each character can fit into multiple classes. The game will feature the familiar Borderlands gunplay and weaponry with a fantasy setting, letting players blow up dragons with rocket launchers.”
Metal Slug Tactics
The next game they announced was Metal Slug Tactics, a grid based tactical strategy title that has its roots in classic 90s gaming. If you like action based gameplay but not entirely mindless, we feel this would be a nice game to play.
“Metal Slug Tactics reunites Marco, Eri, Fio, and Tarma as they lead the Peregrine Falcon Squad into a new battlefield through dynamic, strategic combat. Players wield classic Metal Slug weaponry, leveraging skill trees, perks, and a super attack-fueling adrenaline system to outwit and demolish flanks of the series’ signature villains.”
Sable was a nice surprised that really intrigued us with its story discovery aspect and mesmerizing landscapes that you encounter along the way. This latest one is also coming to Steam later in the year.
“We knew that if we didn’t find a way of making something evocative artistically then the experience we wanted to create would be significantly more difficult,” he explains. “We did, however, first come up with the essence of what we wanted to make people feel before we started any work.”
Dozens of other games and announcements were made through the four hour long show. It’s worth the watch. Check out the Summer Game Fest 2021 livestream recording below!
