The Game Awards is fast approaching and its set to once again be a showcase of the industry with various reveals. Some details surrounding what we'll see have already been confirmed and I thought it made sense to compile what to expect with the event. I'll also include what won't be there as some developers have already mentioned their titles won't be shown or that they won't have a presence there.

This is an annual event that has continued to grow and evolve. I personally felt it hit a fine note that last year after some rather awkward shows in the past. There are guest speakers, awards to hand out to various games and of course surprises. I would suggest keeping your expectations tame for larger reveals. The detailed lists of expectations are below and broken down into three categories. Oh, we've included our award nominations page below. We have a fan vote so check it out if you're not busy.
