Like any awards show, the Game Awards are nominally about honoring the best video games to come out in a given year. But the reason the events draw a large audience is that they regularly reveals new information about upcoming games. This year was no different, with a flood of new announcements. Sometimes the Game Awards can be a bit underwhelming, but this year’s show was filled to the brim with big news and bigger surprises. Here are some of the most notable reveals to come out of the 2022 Game Awards

It arrives on Nintendo Switch on March 17.

The Game Awards included a new trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, the new game from Rocksteady, the studio behind the Batman Arkham trilogy.
