On Thursday, December 9, the annual Game Awards, hosted by Geoff Keighley, will be broadcast live in person. The event will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on over 40 streaming and social platforms for free. Last year’s event was an online-only affair that, despite its limitations, drew a record-breaking number of viewers.
Apart from the return of The Game Awards Orchestra, there are few details about who or what will be at the show. There will be a lot of world premieres of new games, as well as musical performances and free playable demos for upcoming games. The Game Awards fully supports co-streaming for you streamers. Because we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, more health and safety information will be shared in the coming weeks for those who plan to attend in person.
The Last of Us Part II took home a slew of awards at last year’s show, including the coveted Game of the Year award.
So, which games do you think will take home Game of the Year? Will it be as successful as Hitman 3, Returnal, Resident Evil Village, or Deathloop? Perhaps It Takes Two, Before Your Eyes, The Forgotten City, or Death’s Door, an indie hit? Don’t forget about upcoming games like Metroid Dread, Far Cry 6, and possibly Halo Infinite (which launches a day before the show).
