The Game Awards 2023 event is coming very soon and if you want to know the program, the time of the conference as well as the games that will be presented, you have come to the right place.
What is The Game Awards 2023?
The Game Awards is a ceremony organized and produced by presenter Geoff Keighley that mixes awards and announcements.
A jury made up of a hundred media and influencers elects a series of games (nominees) which can then win various prizes such as game of the year, best soundtrack or best artistic direction. The winners are announced live.
Between several nominations, the evening is punctuated by trailers of various games, and some are announced or shown for the first time. Publishers who pay to broadcast their trailer thus benefit from significant media exposure.
At the end of the conference, a full summary will be available on Xboxygen. You can find that of the Game Awards 2021 as an example.
When is The Game Awards 2023?
- When ? On the night of Thursday December 8 to Friday December 9
- Where ? On line
- What time ? from 1:30 a.m.
- How long ? We don’t know, but it will be shorter than the previous year (3h30)
You understood, the Game Awards were not designed for Europe since they take place in the middle of the night on the old continent. But as usual, the Xboxygen editorial staff will be available throughout the night to cover the event live and offer you all the dedicated articles as well as the big summary.
Which games will be featured at The Game Awards?
If the event is watched so much, it is because it includes many game announcements. Some are also announced several years before they come out, for example the case of Hellblade 2, unveiled for the first time during the Game Awards 2019.
Officially, fifty games will be presented during the event. These will be games already released that offer new content, but we will also be entitled to announcements and surprises.
- Skylight, the new fantasy action game from Airship Syndicate, will be unveiled at The Game Awards. We know few details about the title, except that Skylight is also the city in which the game will take place and the “last bastion of hope for humanity and a place you will call home”.
- Josef Fares’ new game (It Takes Two) should be announced! The creator confirmed in an interview at the beginning of November that he would be in the game.
Rumors and unconfirmed games
- The Lords Of The Fallen: gameplay of the game must officially be shown at the end of the year. There is almost no doubt that this will be the case during the event.
- Star Wars Jedi: Survivor should come with a trailer, and announce its release date at the same time. The latest rumors mentioned the month of March 2023.
- A new Crash Bandicoot game could be announced if we are to believe clues left by Activision on a pizza box.
- Final Fantasy XVI should launch its pre-orders during the ceremony.
As usual, the Xboxygen team continues to follow all the news of the event and this article will be updated continuously with all the expected announcements and information communicated before the evening.
