The Game Awards 2018 kicks off at 5:30 pm Pacific / 8:30 pm Eastern. The show has been around for many years as a celebration of the gaming industry by providing a dedicated show for awards for games, new game announcements, discussions, and more.
The Game Awards are back, and this year promises the biggest lineup of game announcements to date.
It's well deserved for God of War, and we couldn't be happier for Cory and the team at Sony Santa Monica for what is an absolute fantastic game.
Along with the ceremony, The Game Awards will also be littered with performances and reveals. We know for sure Ancestors, the game from Assassin's Creed creator Patrice Désilets, will show new footage, as will BioWare's upcoming online shooter Anthem.
"Thursday during The Game Awards don't miss a Fortnite announcement and world premiere from Epic's Donald Mustard".
As you can see, there's a lot to talk about...so let's talk! We've got a simulcast embedded in the article all prepped and ready for the show.
