God Of War Walks Away With The Game Awards' Highest Honor

The Game Awards have come along way in the last few years, now standing as one of the industry's most impressive events of the year. But throughout all the glamour and glitz of the reveals and trailers, the actual awards seem to get a little lost in the shuffle. The show seems to have taken note of this and done their best to try and give them more due, which seems to have mostly worked, despite the fact that several awards were still only given passing mentions and some nominees were not even announced.

That said, here are the winners and nominees for all the awards at tonight's event. Winners are in bold.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (Ubisoft Quebec / Ubisoft) Celeste (Matt Makes Games)
God of War (Sony Santa Monica / SIE)
Marvel’s Spider-Man (Insomniac Games / SIE)
Monster Hunter: World (Capcom)
Red Dead Redemption 2 (Rockstar Games)

Joker From Persona 5 Coming To Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Toward the end of The Game Awards tonight, a trailer was aired cutting out the lights to the theater. The Phantom Thieves of Persona 5 fame started talking about how Joker has been invited to steal a treasure, showing off the calling card, but then flipped it over to reveal a Super Smash Bros. logo.

Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, then revealed that Joker is going to be the first DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

We'll update with the trailer as soon as it is posted.

Rage 2 Game Director Promises Better Ending

Rage 2 Game Director Promises Better Ending

Even among its strongest supporters, there was little doubt that the original Rage's ending was lackluster. Beyond the abruptness of the ending itself, players were locked out of exploring the game after its ending, which is normally an open-world no-no.

Both id Software and Avalanche Studios acknowledge the disappointment with the ending of the original game, and Game Director Magnus Nedfors explicitly told us that Rage 2 will have a better ending this go round:

The main story of the game has a good ending with closure. Once you finish the main story, you’re allowed to continue on and explore the open world. It will continue to exist as a state and you can gather money and become more powerful [during the post-game]. So many people who play open-world game are completionists and want to keep on playing, so we’ll keep the world open.

Rage 2 Won't Have Multiplayer

Since Rage 2 was announced, interested players have hoped that the sequel would take a page from its post-apocalyptic brethren, Borderlands, and offer co-op play. Well, we have some bad news for those folks. During our cover trip we got the word from developers Avalanche Studios and id Software: There are no plans for a multiplayer component of any kind.

The developer also stated that modding would not be available for PC users at launch, though the door is open to add it later.
