Candidates for The Game Awards 2020, the most important awards in the video game industry, announced

After several weeks of expectations and an intense year for the video game industry, the candidates for the The Game Awards 2020. Through a broadcast by Geoff keighley, producer and presenter of the event, it was learned that The Last of Us 2, the exclusive PlayStation video game developed by Naughty Dog will be the big favorite this year by being presented in 9 categories, but Hades fights closely when appearing in 8. Both are nominated for Game of the Year.

With few surprises, the most important category is Game of the Year or also known as GOTY (Game of the Year), and will be made up of The Last of Us 2, Ghost of tsushima, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Hades, Doom Eternal Y Final Fantasy VII: Remake. This, without a doubt, will be one of the toughest categories, given that all the titles have various factors that positioned them to be nominated as the best of 2020.

For its part, another of the most interesting categories of this particular year is Best Action / Adventure Game, it will also be very fought since it will be made up of AC: Valhalla, Ghost of tshushima, Marvel´s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ori And The Will Of The Wisps, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Y The Last Of Us 2.

It should be noted that the event, which will be held on December 10, will change its format to a remote transmission, given the impossibility of holding together with the nominees. To make this experience interesting and special, it will be broadcast from three locations around the world, Los Angeles, London and Tokyo. This will be simultaneous through 45 video platforms and with the possibility of reproducing in 4K quality.

Among the novelties that were presented during this broadcast, is the Most Awaited Game category, which makes its debut. This will be peculiar, since unlike the others it will be voted on by users through Twitter, the social network with which the event generated a special alliance for this edition. The public will have time from today, November 18, to choose which is the video game that generates the most expectations.
