What are The Game Awards?

If you’ve never watched the show before, then here’s a quick explainer. The event is all about celebrating the year’s amazing games, across a huge range of gaming-themed categories, from Game of the Year and best indie game all the way to best esports team and best VR title. It’s also a chance for developers to showcase brand new games and projects, and this year is no exception.

Anyone can vote for their favourite games to win, but ultimately the winners are decided by a combination of public votes (worth 10%) and the Game Awards jury (worth 90%). The awards cover a whopping 29 categories this year (and you can check out the full list below), but that’s not the only thing you’ve got to look forward to from the event.

According to Game Awards producer Geoff Keighley in a recent Reddit AMA, this year’s Game Awards will include reveals for ten previously unannounced new games and projects. We’ve not yet had any hints as to what those could be though, so we’ll have to wait until the livestream to find out.

And as if that wasn’t enough, there’ll be live performances from Green Day, CHVRCHES, and The Game Awards Orchestra too.

In the meantime, while you wait for the stream to begin, you can check out a selection of the nominees right here.
