The full list of The Game Awards nominees this year feature some of the best games in the business, as can be expected. We'll be keeping you up to date on all of the winners, so be sure to stay tuned to our coverage.

From what's been revealed so far, The Game Awards will give us a look into Fall Guys Season 3, a new look at the next Dragon Age game from BioWare, a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter reveal, and plenty of more surprises. Xbox's Aaron Greenberg has already told fans to temper expectations, however, as they shouldn't go in thinking it will be as big as last year when Microsoft revealed the Xbox Series X.

Because Cyberpunk 2077 just came out today, you won't be seeing it pop up at The Game Awards this year. It will be eligible for next year's awards in 2021.
