THQ Nordic’s showcase event last Friday was a blockbuster, revealing some big names, and detailing full slate of upcoming releases.
Heading off the oncoming rush of Gamescom announcements was THQ Nordic, as the publisher held a blockbuster event this past Friday. The show not only went into upcoming titles like Alone in the Dark, Last Train Home, and Gothic, but also saw some massive new game announcements.
Here’s the full presentation:
Just the highlights ma’am
If the above is a bit too long of a watch for you, no worries. We’ve got the full highlights as well, buy way of a handy dandy little list of trailers. And if you’re looking for surprises, you’re probably going to be pretty happy with what’s on tap.
The publisher took the wraps off of some pretty great looking stuff. That’s a list that included a long-awaited sequel with action RPG Titan Quest 2, a 4 player co-op South Park game, and a video game adaptation of the IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles epic that is The Last Ronin.
Of course, some of this stuff you’re about to see is coming sooner than later, but some is more or less undated. Just something to keep in mind, as you try to temper that enthusiasm.
