Those who follow the video game industry have certainly heard about The Game Awards

The Game Awards 2022 is set for December 8, 2022. The event will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Simultaneously streaming on more than 40 streaming platforms worldwide, including YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook and TikTok, the event is also expected to feature an IMAX experience in select theaters, just like last year's event.

This year’s event will see the debut of the “Best Adaptation” category, which honors creative works

The Best Adaptation Award is a way for the games industry and its fans to tip their hats to creative work that authentically adapts and often adds knowledge and context to our favorite game franchises

With so many game-inspired projects in entertainment, the time is right to honor excellence in adapting video game worlds to other mediums.

As always, in addition to the awards, we can also look forward to previews of upcoming games

as well as musical performances and the return of The Game Awards Orchestra conducted by Lorne Balfe.
