The Game Awards PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Last year’s instalment of The Game Awards was by far the best show that Geoff Keighley’s put together, so it’s reassuring to learn that the event will return on Thursday, 6th December. “Our team is deep into planning the 2018 show, which will be our biggest production yet,” the Canadian said. “We’re taking all the elements that worked last year and adding even more to the experience.”

Contenders for the coveted Game of the Year award will no doubt include the likes of God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 this time around, but we suspect you can expect the usual sprinkling of new announcements and trailers during the event itself. It’s testament to how much these shows have improved in recent years that we genuinely look forward to them now.
