What is The Game Awards?
The Game Awards is an awards ceremony hosted to honor artistic and technical merit in the video game industry. It is regarded as one of the most famous and prestigious awards in the industry. Fans are usually hyped about the award ceremony since The Game Awards also feature premieres of new games and in-depth looks at previously-announced ones.
Usually the tournament is hosted by Geoff Keighley at The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. The 2020 version of this year’s show will, understandably, differ from years past, as a result of the ongoing pandemic. It will instead be simulcast from different three locations in Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo. However, it has been confirmed that there will be no audience present in these locations.
The Game Awards 2020 will be streamed online across 45 worldwide video platforms.
