- A bunch of new games were unveiled on Thursday night during the annual video game industry awards show, The Game Awards.
- Some of the biggest games unveiled were from major franchises: „Mortal Kombat 11“ and „Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled“ are among the most recognizable.
- EA’s long-rumored new „Dragon Age“ game was teased, and a new game from the team behind „No Man’s Sky“ was revealed as a much smaller, more quiet affair.
New games? In December?
In what’s become an annual tradition during the past five years, The Game Awards mixes an Oscars-like event with a bunch of major game announcements. This year’s event, which happened on Thursday night, was no exception: A brand new „Mortal Kombat“ game was finally unveiled, and a long-awaited new entry in the „Dragon Age“ series was teased by EA’s BioWare studio.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! We’ve rounded up the most important highlights below:
1. „Mortal Kombat 11“
A new „Mortal Kombat“ is on the way from the same folks who have been making „Mortal Kombat“ for the last 20-plus years: Creative director Ed Boon and the team at Netherrealm Studios in Chicago.
Boon himself revealed the debut trailer on stage during The Game Awards, which prominently featured franchise favorites Scorpion (seen above) and Raiden. No gameplay was shown, but that’s coming in January. Better still: The game is headed to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 23.

2. „Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled“
Remember „Crash Team Racing“? It was the „Mario Kart“ equivalent on PlayStation 1 that some folks swore by, and in 2019 it’s coming back!
The original game is being re-created in loving/ridiculous detail for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. In addition to all the original racers and tracks, the new game is getting online racing — something that didn’t become commonplace in gaming until two full game generations after the original PlayStation 1.
Since this game’s a reboot of an older game, it comes with a lower price tag: Just $40. It’s scheduled to arrive on June 21, 2019.
