Mortal Kombat 1 saw an extensive game play trailer that looked jaw dropping – with incredible looking gameplay, fighting techniques and stunningly gruesome fatalities. We think there is a good chance that we see this game in the cloud given that Mortal Kombat 11 is available on multiple cloud services.

Nicholas Cage is coming to Dead by Daylight – a game that is available on multiple cloud gaming services.

The Witcher Netflix TV Show on Netflix got a trailer for season 3 – the last with Henry Cavill. The Witcher, The Witcher 2 and The Witcher 3 are all available to play on GeForce NOW.

We got a new trailer for Lies of P, which we know to be coming to Xbox Game Pass and Xcloud. The game looks absolutely stunning. It is probably the best looking game at the showcase in our opinion so far!

Throne and Liberty is a new game from Amazon Studios that saw some play time at the show. But, unfortunately Luna logos were nowhere to be found…

Day of the Devs

We aren’t expecting to see a lot of the games announced definitively mention the cloud. But, we expect many to still arrive on cloud services like GeForce NOW, Boosteroid, Xbox Game Pass as well as Utomik and Blacknut.

Other Games Announced That May Arrive on the Cloud

Devolver Digital

The quirky and fun Devolver Digital showcase was highlighted with the announcement of Human Fall Flat 2! Since Human Fall Flat is on so many cloud gaming platforms, we definitely hope the sequel arrives in the cloud as well. Why not give it the full RTX treatment on GFN?

We also got some new gameplay footage of The Talos Principle II, which recently opted into GeForce NOW on Steam.

Other Games Highlighted that are Likely to Hit the Cloud

Tribeca Games Showcase

The Tribeca Games Showcase highlighted a number of special hand picked upcoming indie games. The games have unique and extraordinary art styles, impactful game play and a strong narrative. Any or all of these games could end up on the cloud:

That final game will appear to fans of the TV Show and looks like Telltale at its best.

Wholesome Direct

The 2023 Wholesome Direct showcased a huge number of games. Check out the link to see them all. A couple that caught our attention were:

Quilts and Cats of Calico is a spin off of the game Calico that was on Stadia before its demise and is now on Utomik.

Frongsong – a fun looking RPG in a world of frogs and bugs

Bestieball – Sports management game … of a team of beasts??

Future Games Show

Again, over 50 games were showcased! Here are some of the highlights

Instinction – A game that was committed to coming to Stadia before its closure. We’re still expecting it to hit the cloud.

Moving Out 2 – The sequel to Moving Out which is available on a handful of cloud gaming services.

Alaskan Road Truckers – This is a game that has opted into GFN on Steam.

SteamWorld Build – The SteamWorld games are beloved by cloud gamers. We’re expecting to see this on in the cloud.

Check out the full list of games shown off at this gamesradar roundup. Lot’s of great titles were showcased to look forward. We think a majority will end up playable in the cloud.

OTK Games Expo

Shacknews has a good summary of every game showcased at the OTK Games Expo. Nothing strikes us as cloud-centric. However, Saturnalia (a current cloud available game) was showcased – as it will be coming to Steam in the near future.

Turnip Boy Robs a Bank will be the sequel to Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion which is currently available on a handful of cloud gaming services.

Innchanted was showcased at the OTK Games Expo which has opted into GFN on Steam. It’s an Overcooked style game where you manage an Inn, with a bit of magic thrown in.
