Massive game announcements at The Game Awards 2017

A video game adaptation of World War Z was just announced at The Game Awards 2017.

The Game Awards spent the night juggling between big game reveals and Award announcements.

Fans have been waiting for the Champions Ballad DLC pack to come out for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, following the previously released pack for the game. Not only did the trailer show the map in action the developers unexpectedly announced it would be available to play at midnight Thursday on the test servers.

And Cuphead, the challenging retro-styled tribute to classic 1930s cartoons and the result of a 7-year development cycle steered by a small three-person team, walked away with Best Art Direction, Best Independent Game and Best Debut Indie Game. The game will be available in 2019 and it will take place in Egypt. New winners were announced and along with them, there were many new trailers.

The co-op escape game (if you call it like that) A Way Out will be available on March 23, 2018 for Xbox One, PC and PS4. Now, after being aquired by Google, developers Owlchemy Labs are back with Vacation Simulator which it describes thusly: "First you JOBBED, now you VACATION".

Finally, the last word on Shohei Ohtani to the Yankees
It's never quite been clear what it is that Ohtani wants, but we know that it's not money since his age, 23, limits his contract. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman confirmed to reporters that Ohtani told the Yankees he would not sign with them.

Meck Co officials will not pay hackers ransom for servers being held
Kinston's tech experts say it's a little unusual that it's taking Mecklenburg County this long to get all its servers restored. Diorio said the county hadn't ruled out paying the ransom, but understood that could be risky.

Skywatchers: See full supermoon on December 3
If you miss the first viewing, another good time to sneak a peek is when the supermoon reaches its peak at 4 a.m. on December 4. Tomorrow will mark the closest the moon will orbit to the earth all year round and will appear bigger and brighter than usual.

Okay, so this one isn't really much of a trailer, but the prospect of a new game from the masochists that brought us Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series alone is enough to get the hardcore gamers salivating.

Battlegrounds was also nominated for Best Ongoing Game, which it lost to Overwatch, and Game of the Year, which was awarded to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

While the awards show itself seemed to go Nintendo's way, Nintendo made a decision to give back and in an immediate way; by presenting the second expansion for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Maybe next year, more award announcements can be embedded into the event to prevent mix-ups like this.
