Live blog: The Game Awards 2022
The Game Awards 2022 will open shortly on Geoff Keighley’s beaming, powdered face, and we’ll be live blogging all the game announcements and reveals that follow. If you don’t already have somewhere to watch, feel free to join myself and Liam as we narrate, debate and maybe even hot-take our way through the show’s surprises.
Or! We’ll collapse from exhaustion thirty minutes in. Yes, it’s a late one if you’re a fellow UK dweller, with The Game Awards stream starting at 12:30am GMT. That’s a more reasonable 7:30pm EST / 4:30pm PST for those on the same continent as the master of trailermonies himself. Here’s the official YouTube stream, and you can find the special RPS Liveblog Widget: Caffeine Edition further down this page.
As for what you can expect, besides dubiously important trophies, there will almost certainly be some Street Fighter 6 news, a Michael Madsen-endorsed announcement from 505 Games, and very probably an update from bezzie Geoff mate Hideo Kojima on the next Kojima Productions project . Valve are also giving away one Steam Deck every minute to some lucky souls who watch the show on Steam. Which you could do, but then you wouldn’t be here, with us. Which would be kinda mean. You know how late Liam is staying up for this?
Most of us here at the RPS Treehouse will be staying up into the small hours on Thursday night to bring you live coverage of the show, while a skeleton crew will take over for the regular 9-to-5 on Friday to bring you more reactions . Check out our Game Awards 2022 topic tag for all the latest info, and keep your eyes peeled for livestream links nearer the time!
evenin’. Join us back here at 12:30am GMT / 7:30pm EST / 4:30pm PST for The Game Awards liveblog! It’ll be RPS… afterdark.
