The Game Awards revealed the first details of its 9th annual presentation, which will be free to watch on more than 40 digital media platforms, including YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, and TikTok Live. The Game Awards provided a record-breaking 85 million global livestreams last year, making it one of the Internet's largest livestream events.
Best Adaptation, a new category for The Game Awards in 2022, will award creative work that genuinely translates video game intellectual property to other popular media, including but not limited to theatrical movies, streaming shows, podcasts, novels, and comic books.
The Game Awards will bring together the biggest names in gaming and popular culture to honor the best games of 2022 while also previewing the medium's future with spectacular new game announcements and world premieres. The Game Awards Orchestra, conducted by Lorne Balfe, will return for another year of musical performances.
The Game Awards: The IMAX Experience, a LIVE community event in cities across the world to experience The Game Awards, will be created in collaboration with the show. More information about The Game Awards: The IMAX Experience will be released in the following months.
