We’ve got all the trailers for new game reveals at The Game Awards 2021 below, with a few extra details on what each title is about and we can expect them to arrive.

Alan Wake 2

What is it? A sequel to Remedy’s horror-laced action-adventure.

When is it coming? 2023.

The first trailer, presented by Remedy’s Sam Lake, doesn’t give much away. According to Lake, the sequel will be Remedy’s first “survival horror game”.

Star Wars: Eclipse

What is it? A Star Wars project from Heavy Rain developer, Quantic Dream.

When is it coming? TBA

When is it coming? Spring 2022.

Wonder Woman

What is it? A new project developed by Monolith, the team behind Shadow of Mordor.

When is it coming? TBA

Among Us VR

What is it? A full VR version of the backstabbing, airlock-ejecting social deduction game

When is it coming? TBA

Details: Among Us is getting a full VR release for PSVR, Quest 2, and Steam VR. It puts players directly into the Skeld level from the standard game. Players will need to physically complete tasks while avoiding the alien friends hiding among their ranks. As an entirely new title, there's no crossplay with the base game.

When is it coming? TBA

Details: The next title from Falcon Age developer Outer Loop. It follows protagonist Jala as she faces up to a series of exes who’ve banded up against her. Confronting them appears to mean taking part in brightly colored fight sequences.The trailer also teases skateboarding, cooking, and parkour. It looks silly and sure to bring a smile to your face.

Texas Chain Saw Massacre

When is it coming? TBA

Details: The team behind Friday the 13th: The Game is creating a new movie tie-in multiplayer horror game. This time up, it looks like one player will be letting loose as Leatherface. Details of how the game will work have yet to be revealed.
