So that was the Summer Games Fest 2022. Geoff Keighley had previously said that we shouldn’t have excessive expectations and that was of course clever: Even if the big hits were missing now, there was still a lot to do in the next few weeks, months and up purely in 2023 could be exciting.
We followed the show as a live blog, everyone watched it together here in the editorial office and reworked it here as a video blog for you. Impressions, thoughts and silly sayings about many of the new titles to come. Have fun watching!
Here are all the titles that could be seen during the Summer Games Fest 2022:
Street Fighter 6 shows Guile in a way that is as short as it is impressive.
A new alien game is coming next year, Dark Descent, and it will be a top-down co-op shooter.
Dead Space 4 is called The Callisto Protocol, looks absolutely like Dead Space and is coming on 12/2/22.
