Where can you watch The Game Awards 2022?
The Game Awards will be broadcast live on almost all major social platforms. However, the easiest way to watch it will be via YouTube or Twitch via the respective links. We’ll also be live blogging the event right here on Push Square. Watch with us and the community! If you can’t watch the show live, don’t worry – we’ll have all the relevant news on the home page as soon as possible.
How long will the Game Awards 2022 last?
A runtime has not been confirmed for this year’s Game Awards, but you should expect it to be quite long. Last year’s show was about three and a half hours long including the pre-show, so we can assume it will be about the same this year. Make sure you have three hours of snacks!
Which games have been nominated for the Game Awards 2022?
The Game Awards 2022 is, as the name suggests, an awards ceremony, recognizing the biggest and best games of the year and more in numerous categories. During the show, we’ll see many of the winners announced on stage, punctuated by musical performances and trailers for upcoming titles. Which games have been nominated for these awards?
Up for game of the year are games you’d expect: Elden Ring, God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West are vying for the top gong, along with Stray, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and A Plague Tale: Requiem. However, these top three are nominated in most categories, so we expect them to take home at least a few wins each. Other highly nominated games are Sifu, Gran Turismo 7 and Immortality.

If you’d like to cast your votes in each category, you can do so via the official Game Awards website.
What games will be shown or announced at the Game Awards 2022?
At this point, we don’t know anything official about what might be announced at The Game Awards 2022. As always, though, there are a few rumors and some educated guesses we can make ahead of the big day.
We’ve been hearing rumblings of a new Crash Bandicoot game appearing on Geoff’s show, potentially a multiplayer game called Wumpa League. This looks like a lock, given that the initial tease came from an official PR package.
Elsewhere, reliable journalist Jeff Grubb has suggested that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the sequel to Fallen Order, could have a release date at the Game Awards. Similarly, Final Fantasy XVI is also rumored to receive a firm date during the show.
That’s it for now, but we’ll be updating this page as news about The Game Awards 2022 comes out.
