More than 10 games to be announced at The Game Awards


The Game Awards are just around the corner and gamers might want to pay special attention because over 10 new games will be announced throughout the event.

First awarded in 2014, the annual Game Awards continues to grow from strength to strength. It will be hosted by creator Geoff Keighley from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on 6 December. Guest presenters include superhero film directors the Russo Brothers, acclaimed actor Christoph Waltz and streaming sensation Ninja (who is also a nominee for best Content Creator).

What would The Game Awards be if there weren’t any big surprises lined up for the night? Gamers will hopefully not be left disappointed then, as Geoff has promised several new games will be revealed. The internet rumour mill has speculated that a release date for Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding will be unveiled and that a new Dragon Age title might be revealed.

Followers of BioWare’s upcoming MMO RPG, Anthem, should be in for a treat too as a new trailer will be shown in advance of the game’s release scheduled for February 2019. Although just a trailer, this might quell the disappointment of those who haven’t been lucky enough to secure a spot on the closed alpha on December 8 and 9… or it could just make the anticipation even worse.
