Buckle up as the Game Awards 2020 are heading your way tonight! The only drawback is that the show will air at about 4:45 AM IST. So those early birds will get a good look at which game takes home the grand prize of Game of the Year! As the tagline of the event goes, this is the biggest night in gaming as developers and the people behind the scenes truly get to shine.
Also, do remember that The Game Awards, is all set to air on multiple Indian networks, this year. Alongside the usual Twitch and YouTube official livestreams, this year, the event is set to be broadcasted in over 45 different video platforms/networks, for free, in up to 4K UHD resolution. Of which, there are some Indian networks as well, as revealed by Geoff Keighley on Twitter, resulting from a partnership with Nodwin Gaming. The networks include MTV India, Disney+ Hotstar, JioTV, MX Player, Voot and Airtel India. Additionally, there will also be a Hindi livestream over at YouTube Gaming.

Check out the livestream of the event below!
As a result of the ongoing pandemic, unlike in previous years, this time, the ceremony will not be entertaining an in-person audience. And will be broadcasted live from three different studio locations – Los Angeles, London and Tokyo. As usual, the show will be hosted by Geoff himself, and will be continuing the trend of showcasing world premieres, huge announcements and musical performances from various artists, all while honouring the winners in each category. The award nominees will be updated on the official website sometime in November, letting you vote, for your favourite picks. Just launched last year, “The Game Festival” will also be returning, with a weekend of playable demos and exclusive in-game reward drops.
