Koch Media Primetime

Koch Media Primetime 2021 delivered first looks and updates on a dozen games. The Q&A style event offered more insight on big games like Payday 3 and Painkiller.

Koch Media kicked off Summer Game Fest by making history at the event. It was the very first time that a show was used to launch a new premium publishing brand. Prime Matter will act as a stable for a growing list for games and their developers.

Geoff Keighley co-hosted the event with Opal Cadman the newly minted Junior Global Brand and Marketing Manager at Prime Matter. The event was delivered in a Q&A format between the hosts and game developers showing off their latest work.


Here are some of big titles discussed during Koch Media Primetime:


Painkiller


During the Summer Game Fest launch we got a brief announcement that 2004’s Painkiller is making a return under the Prime Matter banner. The first game came from Polish Studio People Can Fly and enjoyed great critical success.

King’s Bounty II


1C Entertainment will be making history for the newly formed Prime Matter. The developer will be releasing the first game under the new label with King’s Bounty II. 1C’s CEO Nikolay Bayshnikov spoke in-depth about the turn-based tactical role-playing game’s features. Class-based combat, dangerous enemies and beautiful environments to explore. The game will arrive on Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on August 24, 2021.

Payday 3 Heads To Tinsel Town


The show closed with a short tease of Starbreeze’s Payday 3 slated to arrive in 2023. Payday 2 had you knocking over banks in Washington D.C. now you’ll be taking your grand larceny to Hollywood. The series has seen some incredible success with Payday 1 and 2 selling well over 9 million copies.
