The Game Awards are taking place right now. Alongside the awards commemorating the year's best, we've also been promised new game reveals and other announcements. Some things have already begun to leak--such as a trailer revealing a Devil May Cry 5 demo hits Xbox One on Friday--while other announcements have been made before the event gets underway, such as CS: Go's battle royale mode. There's sure to be plenty else worth tuning in for. If you want to follow along, you can watch The Game Awards live right here on GameSpot in the stream above.

This year's Game of the Year nominees are Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Celeste, God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man, Monster Hunter World, and Red Dead Redemption 2. Three of those--God of War, Spider-Man, and Red Dead--are also up for Best Game Direction. God of War and Red Dead are generally regarded as the frontrunners, given that they both lead for number of nominees at eight apiece. Other notable categories include Best Ongoing Game, Games for Impact, and a variety of Esports categories. You can see everything in the full list of awards and nominees.

Sharing the spotlight with the awards will be a slate of game announcements. Host Geoff Keighley has already announced that we can expect ten new game announcements along with several updates on current games. Obsidian has teased that we'll see whatever it has in store at the show too. We can also expect celebrity guests, such as Avengers 4 directors the Russo brothers. Additionally, we'll apparently be hearing about a new Far Cry game, and we've also got some word on what not to expect.

Last year's Game Awards attracted 11.5 million viewers according to Variety, and hosted announcements of games like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, In The Valley Of Gods, and Bayonetta 3.
