While The Game Awards 2022 was handing out honors to the likes of God of War Ragnarok and Stray, it also featured some major reveals for games we’ll be playing for the next few years.

Here are the 10 biggest reveals from The Game Awards 2022

Square Enix

10. Among Us

Among Us fans who’ve been enjoying the hit social deception game’s merry murder and mayhem have a new reason to celebrate — a brand-new mode called Hide ‘N Seek. This new take on the popular alien sim lets imposters run wild on the station, trying to off every other crewmember instead of slinking in the shadows, starting December 9.

9. Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon

Not long after Bayonetta 3, there’s already another Bayonetta game on the horizon — with a completely new take. Bayonetta Origins tells the story of how Bayonetta became a witch, with top-down action and a gorgeous art style. It hits Nintendo Switch on March 17, 2023.

8. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

The Game Awards premiered the first trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which looks like a huge step up from the already excellent Fallen Order. This time, Cal is bringing even more potent Force powers to his fight against the Empire. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launches on March 17, 2023.

EA

7. Diablo 4

Following a trailer as gory as it was beautiful, The Game Awards revealed the release date for Diablo 4. The demon-slaying adventure will be released on June 6, 2023, and it’s available to play early with a pre-order.

Blizzard Entertainment

6. Baldur’s Gate 3

The long-awaited Baldur’s Gate 3 is finally near its release. In a new trailer that revealed the return of a fan-favorite Baldur’s Gate character, developer Larian Studios revealed Baldur’s Gate 3 is out in August 2023. Also, this one has Driders, so that’s pretty cool.

5. Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores

Less than a year after the release of Horizon Forbidden West, Aloy is returning for its first DLC. Burning Shores takes a trip to Los Angeles, where the Hollywood sign somehow outlived the entirety of human civilization. Burning Shores lands April 19, 2023.

Guerrilla Games

4. Final Fantasy XVI

Final Fantasy XVI got yet another action-packed trailer, and more importantly, a release date. While the “Revenge” trailer shows still more tragedy for the dark Final Fantasy game, the release date is good news. FFXVI is due out June 22, 2023.

Square Enix

3. Death Stranding 2

Hideo Kojima appeared on The Game Awards stage to announce Death Stranding 2. Its stunning trailer confirms a game that seems just as inscrutable as the original was before its release, reuniting Death Stranding’s stars for what looks like an extremely intense sequel.

2. Hades 2

It’s Hades 2. What else do you need to know? Supergiant Games is back with a sequel to one of 2020’s best games, this time focusing on a quest to kill the Titan Kronos. Hades 2 will launch in Early Access in 2023, and it stars Zagreus’ sister, Melinoe, goddess of nightmares.

1. Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon

The long-rumored FromSoftware Armored Core game is real, and it’s coming next year. Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is a continuation of the classic mech warfare series. Beyond its legacy, a cinematic trailer, and the fact that it’s FromSoft, we don’t know anything about the game yet, but those are all great reasons to be hyped.
