Back in August we saw a trailer for a horror movie-inspired video game starring Hayden Panettiere titled Until Dawn come out of Gamescom.
Last night at The Game Awards 2014 a new preview of the game was shown, this time offering a peek at some gameplay action. Until Dawn uses the familiar “group of kids staying at a remote cabin trying to survive a psycho killer on the prowl” horror movie recipe, but it’s your decisions that ultimately lead to who lives and who dies.
You can read more about the game and see what some of these life or death choices look like in the video below.
Another one of the games shown of at The Game Awards 2014 was an upcoming game based on the legendary monster movie series, Godzilla.
Not a ton is shown of the actual game, but this isn’t based on the recent reboot of the movie franchise. Instead, Godzilla has a classic look that should spark some nostalgia in fans who have grown up watching the movies.
Most of the games shown off at The Game Awards 2014 last night were games we were already aware of. But there were a couple of lesser known titles present as well, and the standout of these was a game called Adr1ft.
The game is inspired by Alfonso CuarÃ³n’s Gravity, as you’ll see in the video; a “first-person experience” that sees the last surviving astronaut of a destroyed space station left to figure out what happened in the most isolated of places.

A game that’s been a standout favorite among gamers whenever we’re given a new brief peek at it is of course No Man’s Sky, the procedurally generated space exploration game from Joe Danger developer Hello Games.
Another brief, albeit exciting new preview of the game was shown at The Game Awards 2014 last night, and introduced another way to get around a universe that’s said to be so unfathomably massive that it’d be a challenge just to find a friend who’s also playing in the same universe: portals. That’s right, No Man’s Sky has little Stargate-like portals that will bring you to new awe-inspiring locations to explore.
Back at E3 2014, Nintendo showed off a new game in the Legend of Zelda franchise that promised the biggest open world map the series has ever seen.
The Game Awards 2014 held their inaugural ceremony last night in Las Vegas (replacing the VGX awards after a disastrous showing last year), and plenty of new previews of upcoming games were shown amongst the various awards being handed out (in the form of the lovely new trophy, designed by none other than WETA). The awards closed out with our first look at the above mentioned new Zelda‘s gameplay, and giving fans an idea of just how big its map is.
In addition to the gameplay you can see in the video below, it was also announced that the new Star Fox will be released sometime next year before the new Zelda, and Majora’s Mask for Nintendo 3DS will be released before that.
