How to Watch The Game Awards and What to Expect | IGN

It’s about that time where we look back on all the games that came out over the last year and discuss the spectacular achievements the games industry has made. The Game Awards is an annual event that brings those members of the game industry and people who love gaming together to honor those special achievements and the individuals who made it all possible. That’s not all − there’ll be musical performances, celebrity presenters, and even some surprise game announcements and reveals. Here’s everything you need to know to make sure you don’t miss it.

The Game Awards 2020 Date and Start Time

The Game Awards takes place on December 10 and will lead with a 30-minute pre-show hosted by Sydnee Goodman. Since it’s a live event, it’s hard to say exactly how long the show itself will be, but it typically lasts for about three hours. If you’re worried about missing any potential news, you might want to tune in for the pre-show festivities as Geoff Keighley announced viewers can expect five world premieres and a musical performance during that time alone. Here are the times The Game Awards pre-show starts:

  • 3:30pm PT
  • 6:30pm ET
  • 12:30am BST
