The Game Awards is coming back in December

The Game Awards are kind of like the Super Bowl, in that we are nominally there to watch the event but the advertisements are what we're really paying attention to. That's not necessarily a bad thing, particularly when it comes to TGAs, because so many of the ads are announcements for brand new games, which are (sometimes, at least) legitimately exciting and informative. 

More than ten new games were unveiled during the 2018 Game Awards show, and founder and host Geoff Keighley said today that more reveals will take place at this year's event, which will happen on December 12.

"This year's show will celebrate the act of creation, as I turn the stage over to a group of visionary teams selected to share their new products with you," Keighley tweeted. "I'm honored to be given this platform to celebrate our shared passion on a global scale. You'll hear much more in the coming weeks about our plans for the 5th anniversary show. It will be very special."

For those who are going to be in Los Angeles on December 12 and would like to attend live, tickets to the show at the Microsoft Theater are on sale now at prices ranging from $70 to $200. Keighley's full, somewhat more florid announcement is yours to enjoy below.

Andy has been gaming on PCs from the very beginning, starting as a youngster with text adventures and primitive action games on a cassette-based TRS80. From there he graduated to the glory days of Sierra Online adventures and Microprose sims, ran a local BBS, learned how to build PCs, and developed a longstanding love of RPGs, immersive sims, and shooters. He began writing videogame news in 2007 for The Escapist and somehow managed to avoid getting fired until 2014, when he joined the storied ranks of PC Gamer. He covers all aspects of the industry, from new game announcements and patch notes to legal disputes, Twitch beefs, esports, and Henry Cavill. Lots of Henry Cavill.
