The Game Awards 2019: Full results, world premieres, reveals and surprises



The Game Awards, the video game equivalent of the Oscars without all the "who's going to host this year?" drama, take place in just over an hour, beginning Thursday, Dec. 12 at 5:30 p.m. PT., 

hosted by Geoff Keighley (of course). While the ceremony is first and foremost about celebrating the year in video games, it's also a vehicle for companies to reveal some of the projects and games they've been keeping under wraps in the Awards' hotly-anticipated "World Premieres."

What will we see? What proverbial rabbits will Geoff pull out of his proverbial hat? And will Death Stranding win all the awards because Hideo Kojima is best mates with the host? Who really knows!

If you just want to know how to watch, you can jump over to our handy guide. There's also the Steam Game Festival, which lets you play demos of some in-development games over on Steam for the next 48 hours. If you'd rather just grab the results and run, then cradle your BB and slam down a Monster Energy drink, because we're bringing you all the results, world premieres and trailers right here. If you want to lambaste me for my choice in video game greatness, keep it civil in our comments or go HAM on Twitter.

You'll find a list of the winners below and the highlights play-by-play, in addition to the premiere trailers appears at the bottom of the page. Game on, gamers!

The Game Awards highlights and reactions

The ceremony begins with Lauren Mayberry and Chvrches absolutely killing it singing "Death Stranding". She's sporting some Mads Mikkelsen-black-ink under her eyes and the string section is just going BANG. Anyway, Chvrches are the best. I can actually just stop watching after this.
