Here Are the RPGs That Won at The Game Awards 2022 - RPGFanAstlibra Revision released on Steam quietly back in October, but positive word-of-mouth has gradually made its presence bigger and bigger since its launch. It has maintained an Overwhelmingly Positive user review rating on Steam throughout over 5,300 reviews at the time of writing, which has been an undeniable factor in catching the attention of those that have come across it because achieving that feat is no easy task whatsoever.
The Game Awards 2022 has passed and it did not disappoint with the reveals (Hades II! Final Fantasy XVI release date!). Even outside of our coverage, I’m pretty excited about the likes of Death Stranding 2 and Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon. It’s alarmingly easy to forget that The Game Awards 2022 has, well, awards, but a lot of trophies were handed out last night. Here’s a list of all of the RPGs (or games that we cover) that bagged gold.
2022 Game Awards Announcement HighlightsAsh of Gods: The Way is a story-driven game with tactical card combat and multiple possible endings. The rules and objectives can shift with every battle - even the shapes and sizes of the battlefields themselves are often changing. Players are forced to adapt their strategy and switch up their decks often in order to keep coming out on top. The game’s original two-deck gameplay, unique scripts and diverse array of locations make sure to keep the stakes high, challenging players to approach every fight from a fresh perspective. In the end, will they manage to make the right choices and prevent a war that will devastate their home and the entire Berkana Kingdom?
Diablo IV developers work long hours for impending release - WashingtonPostSummarizing the highlights of the announcements made at the 2022 Game Awards
The big Diablo 4 Interview - EurogamerActivision Blizzard employees developing the upcoming dark fantasy action role-playing game “Diablo IV” say it will be hard to meet a June 6, 2023, release date without working significant overtime, in a process they say has been plagued by mismanagement. The release date, which has not been announced publicly, comes in the same month that Microsoft’s proposed $68.7 billion acquisition is set to close. The company is incentivizing employees to “crunch,” an industry term referring to working late evenings and weekends outside of regular work hours, by promising them perks some workers say are paltry.
Earlier this week, I had the chance to play the beginning of Diablo 4, and I put around 10 hours into it. I came away very impressed. To be clear, there's a lot I didn't see - the whole shared world vision for the game wasn't particularly apparent because there weren't a lot of people playing it. But what I did see, I liked. There's more depth to this Diablo, and more space and freedom in it, than I think I've ever seen in a Diablo game. And the world it presents feels tangible and solid, like a real thing, with characters you will come to know and perhaps even care about. In short, it feels like a generational leap forwards for Diablo, as it should.

Elden Ring Has "Several More Things" Incoming - MP1stYou might want to just check out the demo and prepare your own opinion at this point. Personally, I'm not seeing the complaints about the visuals and performance, but the few minutes I've had to play haven't been nearly enough to come to terms with the combat system - though some players have managed to wring some pretty impressive action out of it already.
“As for Elden Ring, we still have several more things we want to do, so getting this GOTY Award really, really encourages us,” said the director. The game just received its free Colosseum update a few days ago, and with more plans for Elden Ring in the future, it looks like the game still has quite a few updates to go, and perhaps this could pertain to a full-fledged DLC drop?

Building Forspoken’s character and world for the PS5 generation - TheSixthAxisThese days… as time goes on, a lot of these games only get better. While some games go from good to great, Open-world games are often notorious for launching with a host of issues and bugs – one of the most egregious examples of late is obviously Cyberpunk 2077, while Witcher 3 was no polished gem at launch either and Bethesda games like Fallout and Skyrim are almost a masterclass (of failure) in launching games stacked with bugs.
Dying Light 2 Developer Tools Released - SteamHaving gone hands on with two sections from early on in Forspoken, we were then able to sit down and speak to Luminous Productions Head Of Studio & Forspoken Director Akeshi Aramaki, Forspoken Co-Director Takefumi Terada, and Forspoken Creative Producer Raio Mitsuno.
