The Game Awards 2022: all the announcements and trailers


The 2022 Game Awards featured a heaping helping of the all the video game news and trailers that weren’t announced during Summer Game Fest. Geoff Keighley, host of the Game Awards, has been slowly teasing information on what fans can expect ahead the even, asking cryptic questions and tweeting pics of his bestie, Hideo Kojima. You never know what to expect from the Game Awards, what games will upset their categories, what musical guest will bewilder the audience, and which celebrities will make offhanded comments about their gamer son’s “alligator brides”. Here’s a roundup of all that this year’s Game Awards had to offer.

  • That’s one way to end an awards show.

    The 2022 edition of The Game Awards ended with Elden Ring taking home top honors, though the moment was interrupted by a mysterious person spouting a very bizarre rant. According to host Geoff Keighley, that person has now been arrested.

  • The award for best cast reveal goes to…

    The Game Awards is always full of new game announcements, and the generically-named Crime Boss is one that made its debut this year. I don’t want to say anything else about it, other than you should watch the trailer because this game’s cast gets increasingly stranger as the clip goes on.

  • The Last of Us remake is coming to PC on March 3rd, 2023.

    We knew it was in development, and now, we know when you’ll be able to play it. The remake launched first on PS5 in September. You can read about my colleague Andrew Webster’s time with that version of the game here.

  • Returnal, my favorite PS5 game, is coming to PC in early 2023.

    I’m happy more people will have a chance to play the excellent Returnal; I personally can’t wait to try it on Steam Deck. You can read more about the upcoming PC release on the PlayStation Blog.

  • It’s almost time for The Game Awards.

    Geoff Keighley’s big year-end gaming show kicks off in just a little over an hour 7:30PM ET / 4:30PM PT. We’ve got all the details on how you can watch right here, or you can watch from the video below. I can’t wait — it seems like the show will be packed with big announcements.
