Gamescom Awards

As is often the case in gaming but almost never in film and television, sci-fi did quite well in this year's Gamescom Awards.

Assuming you regard steampunk souls-like Lies of P to be sci-fi. Otherwise sci-fi bombed.

For what it's worth Lies of P looked decidedly sci-fi to our eye, and also very impressive.

The setting is historical - late 1800s / early 1900's France but with imaginative techno twists.

You play a robot.

Can't get much more sci-fi than that.

On to the winners.

IXION - Best Strategy / Simulation Game

Lies of P - Best Action Adventure Game, Best Role Playing Game, and Most Wanted Sony PlayStation Game

Warhammer 40K: Darktide - Best Multiplayer Game

IXION recently announced it will launch on November 16 on PC.

Warhammer 40K: Darktide will launch not long after on November 30 on PC and Xbox.

Lies of P is scheduled to release in 2023 on PC, Xbox and PlayStation.
