How to Watch the Game Awards 2020
Tonight , the Game Awards , the video game industry’s annual graduation ceremony celebrating the best gaming and esports of the past 12 months, will take place. As always, the event is hosted by Jeff Keighley, but this year the event is ditching the conventional concert hall and opting for a smaller virtual venue due to COVID-19.
This did not stop Kaylee and the team from fully realizing their plans for the 2020 show. Celebrities such as Keanu Reeves, Christopher Nolan, Gal Gadot, Brie Larson, Stefan A. Smith and Tom Holland will be presenting various awards throughout the night. The event will be attended by representatives from the gaming industry such as Reggie Fils-Aim and Eddie Vedder will perform live.
How to watch The Game Awards 2020
The Game Awards 2020 live stream on Steam begins at 6:30 PM ET / 3:30 PM PT on a variety of platforms including:
- Facebook Live
- Steam (in the app)
- TEC So
- YouTube (embedded above)
There are over 30 awards to be presented, including Best RPG, Best Action, Best Performance, and more. You can find a complete list at The Game Awards website. The biggest award of the evening – Game of the Year – will be presented at the end of the event.
Six nominees for this year’s best game of the year:
- Doom eternal
- Final fantasy vii remake
- The last of us 2
- Ghost of Tsushima
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons
All of these games are commendable, but I personally chose Hades or Final Fantasy VII Remake. That said, I suspect The Last of Us 2 will triumph, although I can’t imagine a game that defines Wednesday any more in 2020 than Animal Crossing: New Horizons .
Along with the awards ceremony, The Game Awards is also a vehicle for showing new trailers and opening big games. Most of these announcements are being kept under wraps, but we know Nintendo will reveal the next guest character to join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate . Other rumors, such as a new trailer for the sequel to Breath of the Wild and From Software’s highly anticipated Elden Ring , are just speculation, but don’t seem outlandish. We’ll have to wait and see.
