Information is starting to come out about The Game Awards for this year. The date has been announced, and tickets will soon be available for purchase for anyone looking to attend. The event will again be available to view LIVE online for those unable to attend. The show will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California on December 3 at 9pm EDT/6pm PDT.
Last year was the first year that the event, in its current capacity (and name), was held, and was regarded by many to be a very good production. The Game Awards is essentially the spiritual successor to the Video Game Awards (VGAs) that formerly aired on Spike TV, hosted by Geoff Keighley.
The Game Awards will stream free around the world via a range of partners, including go90, YouTube, Twitch, Steam, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and TheGameAwards.com. Fans who watch on go90 will see additional exclusive shoulder programming and content before and after the show.
Last year’s inaugural Game Awards was streamed almost 2 million times in three hours, and generated more than 500 million social media impressions on Twitter.
The Game Awards is backed by an advisory board that includes:
Activision (Eric Hirshberg, CEO), Electronic Arts (Peter Moore, COO), Hideo Kojima, Microsoft Xbox (Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox), Nintendo of America (Reggie Fils-Aime, President), Rockstar Games, Sony Computer Entertainment America (Shawn Layden, CEO), Telltale Games (Steve Allison, SVP Publishing), Ubisoft (Yves Guillemot, CEO), Valve and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (David Haddad, President).
Fans will be able to purchase tickets to attend The Game Awards 2015 starting on Thursday, November 12.
More details are to come soon, but until then enjoy last year’s show.
