Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards will celebrate their fifth anniversary this year. When it comes to shows that we have seen in recent years, not only the best games of the year are honored, but also CV awards, musical performances and many new game announcements. In addition to E3 and Gamescom, The Game Awards is one of the biggest events of the year, and we look forward to the show of the year 2018. Here's what you need to know about the Game Awards, including date, location, fashion , Categories and nominees.
When and where is it?
The Game Awards will take place on Thursday, December 6, at 8:30 pm ET. The event will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, and tickets are currently available at AXS.
Last year's show lasted about three hours, so you can expect it to end around midnight. Because of this time frame, Keighley and industry veterans can not present all the prizes that will be presented this evening. The full list of winners can be found on the official website.
How to Watch the 2018 Game Awards
The Game Awards are not available on television, but you can stream them from a variety of different services across multiple devices. Last year's show was streamed on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook Live, Steam, and Mixer, as well as directly from Xbox One and PlayStation. We will also be showing one of the Digital Trends broadcasts so you can have a look here if you do not want to go to another website.
YouTube and Twitch are both great options for The Game Awards. However, there has been some form of interactivity in the past when viewed directly on game consoles. If you want to vote with other viewers, this might be the best option.
How to Select Nominees and Winners
Last year, nominees for the many game categories of The Game Awards were selected by a 51-member jury outlets, each of which selected five games per category. The three Esports categories have been selected by a separate Esports jury.
The winners were mainly determined by the juries, which received 90 percent of the voting rights, while the fans scored 10 percent in most categories. The fans were the only voters in the categories Best Esports Game, Best Esports Player, Best Esports Team, Most Expected Game and Trending Gamer. Keighley also revealed that fans can vote Discord Server Vote in 2018.
