Geoff Keighley Confirms Bloodborne And The Order: 1886 For The Game Awards 2014


This year’s annual The Game Awards are only three days away and excitement is beginning to build across the four corners of the industry. To heighten the anticipation even more, longtime host Geoff Keighley has taken to Twitter to confirm that PlayStation 4 owners can look forward to all-new looks at Bloodborne and The Order: 1886. Not only that, the show — which is due to take place on Friday, December 5 — will host no less than twelve world premieres.

Here’s the teases that Keighley has published over the last couple of days:

Last year’s event played host to a number of notable reveals, including the likes of Telltale’s Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands along with Hello Games’ bold, space-faring adventure No Man’s Sky — in fact, it’s understood we’ll learn much more about the latter title, as studio head Sean Murray is expected to appear on stage. Elsewhere, Hideo Kojima recently confirmed that he will be introducing a retooled version of Metal Gear Online, which may have a role to play in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Circling back to the recent additions, though, and it’s clear that Sony is organizing its deck of exclusives as we approach the turn of the year. PlayStation 4 is in dire need of a system-selling exclusive, and the publisher will hope to trumpet both The Order: 1886 and From Software’s Victorian-styled RPG — which was recently hit with a delay, pushing the PS4-exclusive from its previous release date of February back until March — at this week’s event.  

We’ll have full coverage of The Game Awards as they happen on Friday, December 5. In the meantime, check out the comprehensive list of nominees over on the event’s official page and let us know if you’re looking forward to learning more about The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne in the comments.
