Italian Game Awards: watch live here today

The Italian Game Awards, which celebrates the best of the Italian games industry, will be broadcast live on Tuesday from 6:00 p.m. BST / 1:00 p.m. ET.

VGC is partnering with the Italian Interactive Digital Entertainment Association (IIDEA) to bring the ceremony to an English-speaking audience.

The Italian Video Game Awards ceremony will see winners announced in five categories: Best Italian Game, Best Innovation, Best Italian Debut, Outstanding Italian Business and Outstanding Individual Contribution.

Viewers will also see examples of what the Italian video game industry has to offer, including never-before-seen trailers.

“We are delighted to return to First Playable in person after the pandemic has seen many events go digital, but, not wanting our global audience to miss out, we are delighted to welcome VGC as an international media partner for the Italian video of this year’s Game Awards,” said Thalita Malagò, Managing Director of IIDEA.

“The Italian video game industry is brimming with creativity and innovation, and it’s an honor to be able to share this with the world. Having Aoife and Elle join us as hosts is a real treat and I’m sure we’re in for a brilliant show.
