What can be presented
A trailer for the film Uncharted?
Let us now enter the world of uncertainty, but also without peanuts. Let’s start with the movie Uncharted, which may be eligible for its first trailer at the 2020 Game Awards. Some things that lead us to believe that: the presence of Tom Holland, who will play a young Nathan Drake in the filmas the host of the show. Just like Nolan North, who gives the hero his voice in the original version as part of his video game adventures. There are currently only a few images of the film, which is scheduled to be released on July 8, 2021. Geoff Keighley’s date could thus symbolize the perfect opportunity to show more.
Any news from Elden Ring?
Here’s a game that is still very mysterious: unveiled at E3 2019, Elden Ring, From Software’s new title created in conjunction with Game of Thrones author George RR Martin, has had no news since then more published. And why not correct that at the Game Awards 2020? Two elements that can lead us to this conclusion: the title is in the running for the “Most Awaited Games” category and Sekiro, GOTY 2019, was teased during the 2017 edition of the event. The fathers of Dark Souls and Geoff Keighley therefore share some similarities. In any case, the other rumors about the 2020 edition seemed far too nebulous to be quoted here. But the tension is coming to an end: answer Friday, December 11th.
