The 24-second video for The Finals made it to number 5 of our most-watched gamescom trailers. In the multiplayer shooter you find yourself in a fighting game show where you compete in teams and shoot for fame and glory.

The title is free for all players! And you don’t have to wait too long either, the shooter is expected to be released later this year. If you want to play The Finals now, you can register for the playtest via Steam. You can read why our shooter expert Phil is already hoping for The Finals in our opinion article:

The Finals promises me something that Battlefield 2042 is extremely lacking

Genre: Survival MMO | Developer: Funcom | release: 2023

The Dune universe is hugely popular again thanks to Denis Villeneuve’s new film. No wonder a new game is in the works! In Dune Awakening you will fight for your survival on the desert planet Arrakis – but not alone. As the trailer reveals, it will be a survival MMO.

That of course suits the makers of the game, Funcom. They already have experience with the genre with Conan Exiles. There was no gameplay yet, but the cinematic trailer looks incredibly good. You can read here why this might convince our survival-shy Vali:

This game could get me hooked on a genre I've avoided for years

Of course, Dead Island 2 also made it into our list. After all, the game has been in development for 10 years now! So fans are eagerly awaiting more material.

The cinematic trailer for the zombie shooter comes around the corner with typical black humor and already reveals a release date: Already Dead Island 2 will be released on February 3, 2023!

It is not yet clear whether the bloody game will appear in Germany at all. You can read what we know and what the chances are here:

Genre: Action RPG | Developer: Deck 13 Interactive | release: 2023

A cinematic trailer is also in second place: The action role-playing game Atlas Fallen is all about sand magic. You are in a fantastic desert world where humanity is dominated by gods. With the help of a magic glove, you can form weapons out of sand that you can use against huge monsters.

Incidentally, the ambitious project comes from Frankfurt Studio Deck 13, i.e. the makers of The Surge and Lords of the Fallen. Studio founder Jan Klose revealed a few more details in our preview of the game:

Oops, it’s Dead Island 2 again! You are obviously so interested in the zombie shooter that both videos even made it into our top 5 most watched gamescom trailers.

Of course, how the game ultimately looks is much more interesting than a rendered video. So it’s not surprising which of the two trailers was more exciting for you.

Judging by your comments, the trailer has largely convinced you, but the time exclusivity for the Epic Games Store dampened the anticipation.

By the way, we were allowed to throw ourselves into the zombie hordes and were quite convinced:

We can give the all clear - except for the zombies
