Yesterday the Game Awards ceremony was held, and beyond the announcement of the winners, we had the opportunity to discover many games and trailers, including Last Sentinel, which promises to be a great promise.
The annual Game Awards ceremony is always an opportunity to discover trailers for highly anticipated games, as well as pleasant surprises. This was the case with Last Sentinel, a new project that revealed an impressive trailer. The game is notable for its development team made up of former GTA 5 team members.
Last Sentinel, a nice surprise from GTA veterans
Last Sentinel is a new triple-A open-world game announced at The Game Awards by Lightspeed LA. Either a development studio based in the United States and owned by Tencent. The game takes place in a futuristic dystopian Tokyo. And seems to focus on the character of Hiromi Shoda, who appears to be a freedom fighter.
In the clearly cinematic trailer, the story begins with a group of young schoolchildren terrorized by invading humans, protected by their robotic matriarchs. However, when these protectors fall, it is suggested that “the demon” will come to their rescue. It is at this moment that the heroine, Hiromi Shoda, appears, skillfully defeating the troops and saving the children. The game’s trailer ends by showing a massive cyberpunk city. But no specific information about platforms or release date of Last Sentinel has been provided. Except that the game is developed by former GTA 5 players.
Not for now
The Last Sentinel development team includes veterans of important titles in the video game industry. Led by Steve C. Martin, who has worked on major games such as GTA 5, Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2, Need for Speed Underground, and Bully, the team also includes professionals who worked on The Last of Us and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The studio emphasizes its commitment to prioritizing player experience and immersion, aiming to provide original interactive storytelling. What is certain is that the founder has a very good track record to his credit.
Given the little information available on this subject, we should not expect an imminent release of The Last Sentinel. Typically, when no platforms are listed, it suggests that development is in its early stages. Of course, we might always get a pleasant surprise. However, when in doubt, it is best to remain cautious and temper your expectations.
