Everything Announced During the Summer Game Fest Kickoff Stream

Summer Game Fest kicked off a busy week for the world of video games, just ahead of the start of E3 2021.

Geoff Keighley’s show had a ton of announcements to share, clocking in at nearly an hour and a half. Getting the obvious out of the way, the biggest announcement was a World Premiere look at Elden Ring, with an actual gameplay trailer and release date of January 21, 2022. It still looks very Dark Souls, but in a more open-world environment with rideable mounts and everything.

Some of the other more notable announcements were the new game from Gearbox, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, which follows in the looter-shooter footsteps of Borderlands. Hideo Kojima appeared to announce Death Stranding Director’s Cut coming to PS5. Other star power appeared with Jeff Goldblum announcing Jurassic World Evolution 2, and former devs from Treyarch revealing their brand new studio Deviation Games, which will be partnering with PlayStation.
