The Game Awards 2020 Leaks: All Winners, How To Watch, Leaks and More

Despite the pretty miserable year that has been 2020, videogame fans have been treated to some truly stellar releases this year.

The Game Awards is back, despite the global pandemic, but as we know, it's not just about the awards.

The event has become a place where games are revealed, and even console designs shown for the first time.

Here's all we know about this year's event.

How To Watch The Game Awards 2020

The event is scheduled for Thursday 10 December, but we don't yet have a timeslot.

Part of this could be down to this year's production being split between LA, London, and Tokyo.

Thankfully, it'll be streamed on YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook, and once we have a firm schedule we'll update this piece.

Ghost of Tsushima wins Player's Voice - December 8

Ghost of Tsushima has been awarded the Player's Voice award the category determined by, you guessed it, the players.

What this means for the other awards it has been nominated for, and for the Game of the Year award specifically, we don't yet know but this is a good barometer for how people are feeling right now.

Judge's votes matter much more in other categories, so we'll just have to wait and see on December 10!

Microsoft Planning Announcement At Game Awards - December 7

Gamesbeat writer Jeff Grubb noted on a video stream last week and noted that Microsoft will have something to show at The Game Awards this week.

While we don't yet know what that'll entail, we do know it won't be Halo Infinite.

With Xbox Game Pass apparently "warming up", could it be a huge announcement?

Tom Holland presenting at Game Awards - December 2

The webhead himself will be appearing at next week's show, prompting speculation that we'll be seeing a debut trailer for the Uncharted movie.

Find out more here.

What Is Bandai Namco teasing? - December 1

With the Game Awards arriving on the same day as Cyberpunk 2077, you'd probably expect Bandai Namco to have a pretty quiet show.

However, the publisher's UK Marketing Director noted that December 10 will be a "Big Day", prompting speculation that we could see something else – Elden Ring, perhaps?

What To Expect At The Game Awards 2020

While the awards are undoubtedly well-presented and prestigious for developers and publishers involved, it would be fair to say that many viewers will be watching for new trailers and announcements.

Last year we got our first look at the Xbox Series X console design, Godfall as the first PS5 game, and multiple League of Legends titles.

We also got to see Fast and Furious Crossroads, but the less said about that the better.

The year before we learned that Joker was coming to Super Smash Bros: Ultimate, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 would be a Nintendo Switch exclusive, and that Hades would be joining early access – with the full game now up for a huge number of awards this year.

All of this is to say that there's really no limit as to what could appear this year. Fall Guys Season 3 is a guarantee following a tweet from producer and host Geoff Keighley, and there's always the chance we'll hear from Keighley's best buddy Hideo Kojima.

Here's hoping for more news on the rumoured Metal Gear Solid remake.
