Spanning console, mobile and PC gaming, as well as eSports, The Game Awards is the first of a new breed of award shows, built from the ground up exclusively for global digital and streaming platforms. Produced and hosted by games journalist Geoff Keighley, the fourth edition of The Game Awards will air on Thursday night at 8:30 PM ET, with tons of awards to hand out and several exciting reveals set to take place throughout the night.
Then there's the awards themselves, with a packed field fighting for Game of the Year.
To increase the hype and prepare the pre-award, Geoff Keighley revealed a site that THQ Nordic has prepared to announce something in the framework of the event.
Quentin Tarantino And JJ Abrams Close To Picking Screenwriter
His 1969-set Manson Murders drama that he's shooting next summer is #9, which would make Star Trek #10 if he indeed makes it. Quentin Tarantino is going where no man has gone before-he's developing a new R-rated Star Trek feature film.
Game of the Year is particularly stacked: Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Horizon: Zero Dawn, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), and Persona 5 will compete for top honors.
Presenters: The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus, famed video game auteur Hideo Kojima and filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro will be on hand to present awards, leading many to believe that the trio will be releasing a new trailer for their collaborative game Death Stranding.
