PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was nominated for a few accolades last night during the annual Game Awards, but the game's only award wasn't handed out during the show.

The Game Awards really stepped up its game this time around with some huge announcements and reveals for games like the new Soulcalibur6, 4A's new post-apocalyptic Metro:Exodus, Bayonetta 3, and a brand new trailer for Hideo Kojima's highly anticipated game Death Stranding. In an attempt to further differentiate the game, developers Epic took to the Games Awards to announce a new 50 vs 50 mode for the title. The 2017 awards were no different with a multitude of new stuff for gamers to get their teeth stuck into in anticipation ranging from a full look at PUBG's new desert map to a tease at a new title from Dark Souls-makers From Software.

PUBG has been one of the hottest games of the year - and it's not even fully released yet. The Miramar map is available to play now.

The developers of Firewatch has started making a new game.

Among other winners on the night, team action game Overwatch was released in 2016 but here returned to collect Best Ongoing Game and Best eSports Game, while Nintendo added three more to its tally via Best Family Game for Super Mario Odyssey, Best Strategy Game for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Best Handheld Game (a de facto Best 3DS Game category) for Metroid: Samus Returns.

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.

Owlchemy Labs, the creator studio of Job Simulator, has reveled a new VR title, Vacation Simulator. These trailers were mainly the new videos showcasing the upcoming games of 2018 and 2019.

Over the years, The Game Awards has earned a reputation for surprising game reveals and announcements.
