‘No Man’s Sky’ Video Game Announcement Trailer Aims For The Stars and Beyond
  |  @   |  

One of the other few highlights of the recent VGX video game awards (another being the announcement of new Game of Thrones and Borderlands video games from Telltale) came in the form of a very intriguing and unbelievably ambitious new video game announcement.

The game is titled No Man’s Sky, and it looks to offer the ultimate exploration experience. If you asked all geeks what their dream video game would be, many of them would likely answer with “an open-world space exploration game.” Open-world games today are great—huge maps you’re free to explore for hundreds of hours—but they always do have an end to where you can go. But what if, in a game like Skyrim for example, instead of saying “I want to go to the top of that mountain!” and making your way to that destination, you looked up into the night skies, saw a planet, and decided you wanted to jump into your dragon space ship and go and explore there for a while? That’s the idea we’re dealing with here. Told ya…ambitious! But it gets better.

New ‘Game Of Thrones’ and ‘Borderlands’ Video Games Announced By Telltale At VGX 2013

For those who don’t know, the Video Game Awards were held this weekend. But instead of being the VGAs, as people were familiar with, they were instead called VGX (the “next generation of video game awards”). And instead of being a traditional awards ceremony with big new game trailers and announcements (which is really all anyone cares about; fan-voted awards are a waste of everyone’s time), as most look forward to, it was instead people hanging around and trying to be funny (followed by immensely awkward silences), with winners announced here and there in odd order. At least that’s what I gather from those who did watch the event. I personally decided not to even bother watching as soon as I found out they were only going to stream the awards, not air it on Spike TV like usual (COPS was on! Yeah…). A truly disastrous attempt at unnecessary change.

All of that said there were a couple bright spots in the one area you can rely on: the new gameplay videos and new game announcements. Last month it was rumored that The Walking Dead and Fables game The Wolf Among Us developer Telltale Games might be working on a Game of Thrones project. Not only was this rumor confirmed with a teaser trailer, but a second teaser trailer was shown for another interesting Telltale project, based on the hit Borderlands series. You can check out both announcement teasers below.
