Grab your popcorn and kick back on Thursday, December 10th, for The Game Awards are scheduled to air! The special date was revealed by the host and creator himself, Geoff Keighley. The 2020 awards show will be airing live in Los Angeles, Tokyo, and London.
The Game Awards official Twitter account posted the announcement this morning. Due to the worldwide pandemic, it’s no surprise that they’ve decided to live stream the show remotely. Streaming on multiple global platforms, the show will utilize the lack of physical audience to pull the people watching at home through social media interaction and voting.

THE GAME AWARDS
Thursday, December 10
🔴 Los Angeles
— The Game Awards (@thegameawards) September 23, 2020
Like every year, anyone and everyone is allowed to vote through the internet. The nominations have yet to be posted, but we’ll make sure to keep you informed. What’s new this year is their new accessibility award. This award is for using innovation and technology to help spread games to a wider audience.
In slight separation from the awards show, the Game Festival will return and feature exclusive demos and playable content. Introduced last year, this gives developers a chance to showcase new content apart from the awards show. If it’ll happen like last year, the Game Festival will run throughout the day of The Game Awards, and last for the upcoming weekend.
Do you already have your game of the year chosen? Will you be watching the show? We certainly can’t wait!
