The soon to be revived version of Channel 4’s cult video games show will feature three main hosts, but the GamesMaster is still a secret.
A new series of video game show GamesMaster is still on schedule to begin soon, with three 60 minute episodes promised before the end of the year.
Despite its imminence there’s still been no footage of the new show and, until now, no indication of who will be hosting it. But now it’s been announced that the trio of presenters will be Consolevania and VideoGaiden alumnus Robert ‘Rab’ Florence, esports presenter Frankie Ward, and content creator Ty Logan.
However, there’s still no hint as to who the GamesMaster – the big floating head that used to be Sir Patrick Moore – will be, despite rumours that Sir Patrick Stewart might be involved.
Florence is acting as creative consultant on the show, while Ward is also known for presenting the annual PC Gaming Show. Logan seems to be the only one without any notable ties to gaming and will apparently be ‘representing the casual gamers’.
‘I’m hugely honoured that I’ve been trusted with ushering a new generation of challengers to their glory or humiliation, under the unflinching gaze of the GamesMaster. I look forward to finding out how much I can get away with’, says Florence.
According to Channel 4 the series will see, ‘celebrities, gaming stars and super fans all take part in challenges, races and epic fights. Through virtual battles across a range of games, the competitors will try everything in their power to claim a legendary Golden Joystick Trophy. But whilst they play, they’ll be watched over by the all-knowing GamesMaster.’
That’s pretty much the same format as the first time around, although what exactly the GamesMaster will do is still unclear, as previously he used to give out tips – which doesn’t seem quite so essential a service nowadays.
