Among the games unveiled during the AG French Direct, there was a new trailer for the game Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong (Nacon), with the game’s developers discussing the creative process behind the game and touching on the universe of this highly-anticipated game. Demons had their moment of glory with Warstride Challenges (Focus Entertainment), which presented images of its new gameplay mixing Trackmania and Doom.

Unreal Engine 5 was also under the spotlight with the announcement of Project Hoyrá (PrimaStone Studio), an action-adventure game that will run on the new engine from Epic Games. Finally, Crossroads (Piece of Cake Studios) presented a world premiere of a cooperative action game that will plunge players into a universe where supernatural creatures invade the Earth.
 

The Outbound Ghost (Conradical Game) caught the eye of many players with a new gameplay video highlighting its Paper Mario graphics style. For fans of dreamlike fantasy worlds, Mirages of Winter (Mirari Games) offers a unique adventure with its announcement for PC. Finally, Propagation: Paradise Hotel (WanadevStudio) will challenge players to survive a zombie invasion, all in virtual reality!

This new edition was a real success, both in viewership and in the quality of its line-up!
