Summer Game Fest: Day One Live Recap

Summer Game Fest just started and we’re here to recap the livestream! This post will be updated with more information as the stream goes on.

  • Geoff Keighley enters the stage and after a hot minute, we have our first trailer for Street Fighter 6 Guile: Trailer

Aliens: Dark Descent

  • Brand new game announcement. People with very edgy faces; what seems to be a metallic Alien.
  • It’s Aliens: Dark Descent. The two seconds of gameplay in the trailer makes it look similar to XCOM.

Callisto Protocol

  • New footage for Callisto Protocol, first gameplay showcase. If this looks familiar, remember the game is being developed by the creative minds behind Dead Space!
  • Glen Scofield, the man behind Dead Space, enters the stage
  • The gameplay shown is from the first half of the game. New weapon: The Grip. Gravity gun that picks up enemies and shoves them into vents.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

  • CoD: Modern Warfare 2 (yes, a new game with the same name as the old game). General Manager for the game previews the game on a dock, for reasons.

Flashback 2

  • World premiere. Return of an iconic franchise from 30 years ago.
  • Flashback 2!

Witchfire

Fort Solis

  • World premiere. Fort Solis.
  • Troy Baker and Roger Clark enter the stage. They play the main characters in Fort Solis. One of the characters is a remote engineer on some moon. Space engineers seems to be a theme.

Routine

  • World premiere, another space game, scored by Mick Gordon.
  • Spooky atmosphere, crouching through vents. Player has something that looks like a Plasma Cutter but is instead just a… camera? Spooky robots seem to be the enemies.
  • It’s called Routine.

Black Adam, for some reason

  • Dwayne Johnson joins live from his phone, topless and jacked, from his gym. He plugs an energy drink. He talks about playing The Foundation on Fortnite. He continues by plugging his upcoming movie, Black Adam.
  • Cue trailer for Black Adam. Not sure why this is showing up here. Starting to believe this is pre-recorded. It probably is.

Outriders: Worldslayer

  • Co-op trailer

Nintendo Switch Coming soon

  • A trailer of lots of upcoming releases
  • Splatoon 3
  • Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
  • Cuphead in “The Delicious Last Course”

Stormgate

  • Frost Giant Studios! They’re a studio made up of ex-Blizzard devs developing an RTS.
  • Lady looking for something in ruins. Has a stone.
  • Some kind of artifact reforms itself, then a winged demon attacks!
  • D.Va but not D.Va comes to the rescue, fights demon. Basically Starcraft meets Warcraft.
  • Stormgate! “Register for 2023 beta”.
  • “Tim” spawns on the stage. Stormgates are portals that open during massive solar storms and unleash the infernal hosts on future Earth.
  • Human Resistance and Infernal Hosts are the first two playable races revealed for now.
  • Will be free-to-play, no pay-to-win, no NFTs. Co-op campaign, 3-player open-ended co-op, 3v3 for competitive multiplayer but also 1v1, naturally.

Highwater

  • People boating around to music that is just a vibe.
  • Premise seems to be post-global warming world. Hazmat suits, lots of water in the city.
  • Adventure-strategy game set in a world ravaged by climate change.

American Arcadium

  • You play Trevor, whose life is being televised, with the population giving you upvotes or downvotes.
  • When you become unpopular, you have to run for your life.

  • Man working out, next to the beach at sunrise. Now he’s jogging.
  • There’s a goat behind him and it’s doing bad things. Goat Simulator 3?!
  • Goat Simulator 3!

Marvel: Midnight Suns

  • Avengers x X-Men x Ghost Rider x Blade vs. Lilith. That’s a mouthful!
  • Master of Puppets playing during the new trailer. Seems slightly remixed with “Avengers-like motifs”.
  • Venom shows up! Lilith shows up too, and she looks quite similar to Diablo 4’s Lilith.
  • There’s Spiderman. A bunch of other people start showing up. Golden Spiderman, ok.
  • Lilith comes back and she’s got… Demon Hulk?!
