Game news Humankind is full of surprise announcements during Summer Game Fest 2022
Between a few big games, the launch party was above all an opportunity to highlight modest titles freshly announced or others with new features. We have thus seen Fall Guys recall its transition to free-to-play, but also Humankind which has an extension and a console version.
Humankind invades Latin America
After Cultures of Africa, Humankind flies this time towards Latin America with a new DLC. Culture of Latin America is indeed aptly named and will take you in the footsteps of the Incas and Cubans in particular. On the program, we find 6 new cultures (Caral, Nazcas, Taïnos, Incas, Argentinians and Cubans), 6 wonders (Sun Pyramid, Maracanã Stadium, Salar de Uyuni, Salto Ángel, Lençóis Maranhenses and Atacama Desert), 9 tribes, 15 narrative events and around thirty unreleased music by Arnaud Roy (regular composer of AMPLITUDE Studios).
Like its predecessor, the DLC costs $8.99 and best of all, is that it is available now on PC. To celebrate, the extension even offers a small 10% discount. If you want, you can get it for $8.09 on Steam until June 23.
Direction consoles (PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One)
But this is not the only announcement concerning Humankind. Indeed, the title will offer a port on consoles. So far available on PC and Stadia, Humankind will soon be available to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One players. The Aspyr studio (Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Remake) is in charge of the port and they have obviously made good progress. We already have the release date: next November 4. Note also that it will be available day one on the Xbox Game Pass console (the PC version is already in the Xbox Game Pass PC catalog).
Add to that a free update allowing for an overhaul of the surrender system, the ability to preview infrastructure performance, or even the balancing of war support modifiers, and you’ve got a more than interesting segment for Humankind players. These various changes had also been requested by the latter.
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
How to follow the Summer Game Fest 2022?
On HelloSolar.info, we will react live to announcements from the LeStream channel alongside Maxildan and Aymeric Lallée in particular. The show will also be directly visible as a teaser on HelloSolar.info’s homepage. And for those who prefer reading, you will of course find our news throughout the conference. A written summary will also be available
What is the program for Summer Game Fest 2022?
Among the games not to miss, there is in particular the heir to Dead Space, The Callisto Protocol, which shows us its first gameplay images. For its part Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 presents us with its first level. Also on the program: Gotham Knights, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, the first game from Aaryn Flynn’s studio (ex-Bioware) Nightingale, the JRPG One Piece Odyssey, the free-to-play Warframe or even Planet of Lana. Geoff Keighley further announced: “We have a few new game announcements for this show and hopefully a few surprises if all goes well. But it’s definitely a show that mostly focuses on things that are foretold.”
