The second big Geoff “Games” Keighley gaming show of the year is here. The Game Awards 2022 premiered late Thursday night and, yes, there sure were some awards given, but as always they were joined by a metric ton of world premiere trailers. You simply can’t do a gaming event without trailers, it seems.

As always, it was a long one, running into Friday morning for some time zones. If you didn’t catch it live (or just didn’t care to sit through the full show, in which case, fair enough) we’ve got all the announcements rounded up for you here.

It was a seriously packed show this year with some announcements that had been teased (or leaked) days ahead of time. But we got a lot of surprises too. Supergiant announced its first sequel: Hades 2. Kojima showed up to talk about a teaser for Death Stranding 2 that he’s been dropping hints about for a while. We got some long-awaited release dates for Diablo 4 and The Last of Us Part 1 on PC.

Here’s everything else that got teased, announced, and dated at this year’s Game Awards.
