Summer Game Fest Live 2022 kicked off the Not-E3 season, and despite host Geoff Keighley warning viewers to keep their expectations in check, it still featured a number of exciting game announcements and updates. At nearly two hours long, there’s a lot to sort through if you haven’t seen it yet, so we picked out the biggest games and announcements from Summer Game Fest Live. Read on to learn about Street Fighter 6, The Callisto Protocol, The Last of Us (both the PS5 remake and the standalone multiplayer game), and more big news.
Street Fighter 6
Street Fighter 6 was just showcased during PlayStation State of Play earlier this month, and exclusive new gameplay footage was shown during Summer Game Fest Live. “America’s Hero” Guile is, naturally, returning, with his incredibly flat hairdo still intact despite the move to a more realistic art style. We get to see him absolutely annihilate Ryu, including using a ridiculously powerful special move that kicks him way into the air. It’s coming in 2023 to PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Aliens: Dark Descent
A new Alien game, Aliens: Dark Descent, debuted during the event, showing a squad of space marines who were quite ill-prepared to deal with the Xenomorph threat. Though the trailer was entirely pre-rendered, it seems to feature a balance of sci-fi action and horror that made the original Alien films so successful. It’s coming in 2023 to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS4, and PC.
