The Game Awards was created in 2014 by media entrepreneur Geoff Keighley. Big titles vying for the "best" in several categories include Marvel's Spider-Man, Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Origins, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, Detroit: Become Human, and Life is unusual 2. The Game Awards is going to be a great night, but there is going to be a ton to do online afterwards. The embedded YouTube video above is a full 4K stream, ensuring you can get every new trailer in high-resolution goodness. Whether you're tuning into the stream for the actual awards or you simply want to soak up all the game announcements, we've got you covered. The games nominated for 2018's Game of the Year award include Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Celeste, God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man, Monster Hunter: World and Red Dead Redemption 2.
While the full announcement may have been spoiled, there's a possibility this wasn't what Epic Games planned to reveal at all and we could be blown away by something entirely different. Already confirmed to perform at this year's ceremony is The Game Awards Orchestra, led by composer Hans Zimmer. More performers will be announced in the lead up to the show. Check out the confirmed, and basically confirmed, games that we'll see at The Game Awards in the slideshow below.
