The date of The Game Awards 2022 revealed

As the gaming industry prepares for the upcoming Gamescom 2022 Opening Night Live, Geoff Keighley has revealed the date for The Game Awards 2022. Held in December this year, the event will not only honor the industry’s greatest achievements of the game and will crown Game of the Year, but it will also reveal new trailers and gameplay for upcoming titles.

Since their inception in 2014, The Game Awards have become an industry standard, earning the designation of the most outstanding award for any video game. The event looks back on the past year and crowns the greatest achievements in different areas related to the game.

This year, @TheGameAwards is introducing a new category: BEST ADAPTATION to recognize outstanding work in adapting video game intellectual property to other forms of entertainment.

Geoff Keighley has finally revealed the date for this year’s The Game Awards.

The Game Awards 2022 return in December

The Game Awards 2022, like every year, will be hosted by Geoff Keighley on December 12, 2022, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. The event will celebrate some of the greatest gaming achievements of the year and commemorate those who have distinguished themselves above all else in certain areas.

This year, The Game Awards introduces a new category, Best Adaptation. As video games quickly move into other mediums, including movies (Sonic or Uncharted), TV shows (Last of Us or Halo), and anime series (Dota Dragon’s Blood or Castlevania), the new category will recognize outstanding adaptations of video games to other forms of entertainment.

In his tweet announcing the date of The Game Awards 2022, Geoff Keighley spoke about the new category and said:

“We’ll be celebrating shows, movies, books, podcasts, comics + more that authentically adapt the source material.”

The Game Awards 2022 are also set to showcase upcoming titles, similar to how Elden Ring took center stage at last year’s event. The Game Awards are also known for creating iconic moments such as Reggie Fils-Aimé, Phil Spencer and Shawn Layden or Josef Fares saying “F**k the Oscars”.

All in all, The Game Awards 2022 are shaping up to be an exciting event. However, one question remains: who will win the game of the year?

Elden Ring or God of War Ragnarök, which will be crowned game of the year?

If a gamer is asked to comment on the winner of this year’s Game of the Year, they’ll most likely respond with Elden Ring or God of War Ragnarök, and with good reason.

The year kicked off with Elden Ring, FromSoftware’s latest title that sparked hype and brought the Soulsborne genre to a much wider audience. Often dubbed the best game released to date, Elden Ring seems like a worthy contender for game of the year.

God of War Ragnarök should be released in less than three months. Although its marketing campaign has been lackluster, the game is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated titles of the year. Not only will it follow on from 2018’s Game of the Year, God of War, but it will also be the final chapter in the saga.

The Game Awards 2022 will be quite exciting for fans, as 2022 has been a great year for gaming.
