Everything Revealed at Summer Game Fest Live

Summer Game Fest Live 2022

Welcome to Not-E3, everyone.

It’s a strange time of year this year: normally we’d be talking non-stop about E3. But this year, there’s no E3. The conferences, events and live shows are still going on, however, and they’re kicking off right now with Summer Game Fest Live 2022.

If you didn’t catch the stream, or simply want a recap of everything that’s been announced at today’s Summer Game Fest, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything announced, revealed and/or shown off during Summer Game Fest Live 2022.

Watch the stream below, or catch up with our round-up that follows:

Street Fighter 6

We already got a glimpse of Street Fighter 6 during Sony’s State of Play last week. Today’ it’s been revealed that Guile is coming back into the fray, and we’ve had our first look at gameplay. It’s coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Note the absence of Xbox One there.

Aliens: Dark Descent

The first World Premiere of the night is here: a brand new game set in the Alien universe. The trailer looks fantastic, but it’s a little misleading: this is a top-down real-time action game rather than the cinematic action game that the trailer suggested. Still, it features an all-new story in a much-loved universe, so we’ll remain optimistic. It’s coming 2023 to consoles and PC.

The Callisto Protocol

From one game set in space to another: here’s the first gameplay trailer for The Callisto Protocol, the spiritual successor to the Dead Space series. It’s gory, it’s freaky, and we’re absolutely here for it. This isn’t going to be one for the faint-hearted, but we’re excited to get our hands on it. It’s coming out on 2nd December 2022.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

As expected, here’s a trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. We’ve had a good look at gameplay and… yep, it looks like Call of Duty. As always with a new Call of Duty game, it looks impressive. Much of the gameplay takes place on a ship, and the water effects in particular are impressive. It’s out 28th October, and pre-ordering now will get you access to the open beta.

Flackback 2

30 years later, an iconic franchise makes a return with Flashback 2. It’s coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch and PC in winter 2022. The trailer didn’t give much away, but still, an exciting glimpse for fans of the original.

Witchfire

Another World Premiere here with Witchfire, by The Astronautsthe team behind The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. This is something rather different, a first-person shooter with magical attacks thrown in along the way. It looks great, and the locations we’ll get to explore look absolutely fascinating. We can’t wait to see more. It’s entering Early Access ‘soon’ on Epic Games Store.

Fort Solis

World Premiere: here’s an intriguing looking indie title taking us to a sci-fi setting. The trailer doesn’t give too much away, but it looks claustrophobic, dark and unsettling. Right up our street, then. And it stars Troy Baker. Just like 99.98% of games ever made.

Routine

Tonight seems to be all about horror-in-space. And here’s another one that looks utterly terrifying and interesting. The very short trailer gives little away, but we can’t wait to see more. It’s coming to Xbox and PC (and Xbox Game Pass).

Outriders Worldslayer

A new trailer for Outriders‘ upcoming expansion, Worldslayer, gave us a glimpse at action-packed co-op gameplay. See more about the trailer here, or read our hands-on preview of Worldslayer here.

Stormgate

Another World Premiere. Despite an action-packed trailer, this is a real time strategy game. Though its world and characters look rather interesting, so if the RTS genre is your bag, this is one worth keeping your eye on. A beta is coming in 2023, which you can register for now at playstormgate.com.

Highwater

An apocalyptic indie game, Highwater‘s trailer has us absolutely hooked. Sailing through a flooded world on a boat, it looks like you’ll be exploring ruins, meeting new people, and avoiding various human threats. It’s coming 2022.

American Arcadia

We’ve seen American Arcadia before, but this new trailer has us even more intrigued by this dystopian puzzle sim that’s like a darker Truman Show. It’s coming soon to PC and console, and you can wishlist now on Steam.

Goat Simulator 3

Coming soon from Coffee Stain Studio is Goat Simulator 3. The zany trailer starts out riffing GTAV before goat-shaped chaos absolutely kicks off. We’re utterly here for it. It’s coming to PC, Xbox and PlayStation later this year.

Marvel’s Midnight Sons

From 2K and Firaxis Games, Midnight Sons brings the world of Marvel to the strategy game genre. The new cinematic trailer shows off Venom getting himself into some trouble, and Spider-Man kicking some butt in the way that only Spidey can. Of course, it’s not quite representative of gameplay, but we’re still looking forward to getting our hands on this when it’s out on 7th October. Pre-order now to get a Doctor Strange Defenders skins.

Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course

We got another look at Cuphead’s expansion, The Delicious Last Course, which is coming to consoles and PC on 30th June. The trailer here shows off a brand new boss, who is absolutely, definitely going to kick our little cartoon hineys.

Neon White

Here’s a trailer for Neon White, an action-packed first person game that looks like a lot of fun. And it’s out very soon: 16th June on PC and Switch. We’ll have more on the game closer to launch.

Midnight Fight Express

Here’s a game made by just one person: Midnight Fight Express. It’s a top-down action game that sees you shooting and brawling your way through crowds. It’s bloody, brutal, and packs in a killer soundtrack. It’s coming to PC and console on 23rd August. There’ll be a demo available on Steam during Steam Next Fest, too.

Warframe

New stuff is coming to Warframe, the long-running free-to-play game. Good news for those of you who play.

Honkai Star/Rail

From the developers of Genshin Impact comes a new game. And once again, like many of tonight’s trailers, we find ourselves in space. It looks interesting, and it’s coming ‘soon’.

Zenless Zone Zero

And another from Hoyoverse. It’s a stylish anime action game

TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge

Here’s a new look at the upcoming side-scrolling beat ’em up featuring everyone’s favourite humanoid turtles. There’s a 6-player mode, playable character Casey Jones. And the big news: it’s out on 16th June. Next week!

Super People

Online multiplayer Super People gets a new, rather cool cinematic trailer. There’s an open beta coming soon.

Humankind

New DLC is coming to Humankind soon, and it looks rather good if you’re a fan of the game. Also! It’s making its way to console ‘soon’, though we’re awaiting a release date. It’s coming to PlayStation and Xbox, and will be on Game Pass on day one.

One Piece Odyssey

Here’s a trailer for One Piece Odyssey, which was announced last month. A brand new RPG starring everyone’s favourite Monkey D. Luffy and the Straw Hats, players can expect new encounters, mysteries, and a gripping adventure. It’s coming later this year to PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

Soul Hackers 2

We got a quick look at Soul Hackers 2, which is coming August 26th. It gave us our first listen at the English voice cast.

Capcom Arcade Stadium 2

There’s a sequel to Capcom Arcade Stadium incoming, bringing a collection of classic Capcom games to our homes. Available 22nd July on PC and consoles.

Metal: Hellsinger

We’ve already had our hands on Metal: Hellsinger and we’re absolutely obsessed with it. Today’s trailer reveals a bit more gameplay, lists some of the metal artists featuring on the soundtrack and gives us even more reason to be excited. You can read our preview here. It’s out on 15th September.

The Quarry

Before its launch tomorrow, he’s another trailer for Supermassive Games’ The Quarry. We’ve already played it, and can tell you it’s well worth diving into. Here’s our review.

Nightingale

Here’s a new trailer for Inflexion Games’ Nightingale, a multiplayer survival and crafting experience set in a mysterious and magical world. We’re certainly intrigued by this one.

Saints Row

Saints Row: Boss Factory launches today, allowing you to create your character ready for Saints Row launching in August. It’s free to download on PC and consoles. Read more about Saints Row here.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide

Here’s a new trailer for the follow-up to the Vermintide series. Darktide promises action-packed co-op gameplay when it releases on 13th September. It’s coming to PC and Xbox.

Layers of Fears

Bloober Team’s next horror game is here, a return to the Layers of Fear world. Graphically, it looks fantastic and if it’s anything like the first game, it’ll be terrifying. We weren’t as impressed with Layers of Fear 2, but we’re excited to give this one a chance. It’s coming early 2023 to PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

Gotham Knights

Coming 23rd October, we can’t wait to jump into Gotham Knights. We got a new look at Nightwing, one of the game’s key characters, and it looks suitably excellent.

The Last of Us

Neil Druckmann’s on stage, talking about various Last of Us properties. First up, is a piece of concept art for an upcoming multiplayer game. Remember when The Last Of Us Part II was supposed to be getting a multiplayer mode? It’s now a standalone game that’s been in development for two years. We’ll see more next year.

Next, Neil provided more information about the upcoming HBO series. He says it’ll be the most authentic video game adaptation yet, and shared a screenshot from an episode he’s directed himself. It was also revealed that Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson – voice actors of Joel and Ellie – have roles in the series. Not as Joel and Ellie, of course; their characters are being kept under wraps.

And, of course, The Last of Part Part I has been revealed for PS5, which leaked earlier.
