The Game Awards will be held on Thursday, December 10, the shows producers announced today. As usual, it will be held as a free digital livestream, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the show runners and host Geoff Keighley are making some significant changes.
Instead of a single live theater audience, The Game Awards 2020 will take place across studios in Los Angeles, Tokyo, and London. Those three stages will host award presentations and musical performances. As always, the award show will also debut trailers from game publishers, and drop news of content drops, special game sales, and limited-time demos.
The show is also introducing a new award this year, Innovation in Accessibility. The new category is said to recognize software and developers that add features to help games be enjoyed by a wider audience.
