The yearly gaming award show organized by Geoff Keighley, namely The Game Awards, has kept passionate gamers awake to watch their favorite games take the prize. Numerous esports athletes and video game titles have been nominated across thirty different categories, and only one of them will take the trophy back home. If you are as excited as us to watch the show, read on. We’ve listed where you can watch the Game Awards 2023 show live and have added a countdown timer to help you keep track of when the event starts.
Where to Watch The Game Awards 2023
The first question many gamers might have is how to watch the Game Awards 2023 event. After all, it is not a generally televised event (though that has changed in recent years). Fortunately, you can watch it directly from your favorite streaming or social media platform if you have a solid internet connection and time.
Game Awards 2023 will stream on numerous platforms, including YouTube, Twitch, Twitter (now X), and others. Here are the links for the platforms where you can watch the show:
- Official Game Awards YouTube
- Official Game Awards Twitch
- Official Game Awards X Account (via X-Live)
- Official Game Awards Facebook Page (via Facebook Live)
- Official Game Awards Kick
- Steam (a banner will go live on the home page when the show begins)
- Every IGN social media channel and GameSpot
- TikTok Live
- Instagram Live
While the award show typically partners with television channels in some regions, such as MTV for India previously, no such news has been shared this year. However, you can head over to the Game Awards website (scroll to the very bottom) to see additional partner platforms for select regions. For example – you can stream the event on Bilibili, Douyu, etc. in China, Disney+ Hotstar and MX Player in India, and more.

What to Expect from The Game Awards 2023?
Alongside crowning the best games from this year, the award show showcases brand new games via their now popular “World Premiere” segments every year. While Geoff Keighley has confirmed that the number of world premieres will be lower this year, we should still expect some surprises to be in store. Furthermore, we can expect new gameplay trailers for previously announced titles
Additionally, the Steam Deck giveaway from last year is returning for The Game Awards 2023. Valve is giving away 100 Steam Deck OLEDs to lucky viewers. So, if you reside in the US, Canada, the UK, or other eligible locations, you can try winning one of our favorite handheld gaming consoles.
Furthermore, Xbox has teased its presence at the awards show. So, we expect updates on titles that are currently in development at Xbox Studios. Like Senua’s Sacrifice, the Indiana Jones game by Machine Games, or the recently rumored Dishonored 3 by Arkane.
