The Game Awards of 2015 are tonight and with it we’ve already talked about all of the nominees and background but a whole lot more information has been revealed since then. This new information, some provided and some leaked, helps to give us a better idea of what to look forward to tonight, specifically the 10 reveals that were hinted at by Geoff Keighley last week. The hints have come from expected and unexpected places so we’re going to run down the list for you.
Starting off with what we know two of the big reveals are the first game play shown for upcoming Far Cry: Primal and more on the live action series for Quantum Break. Far Cry: Primal is the next spin off in the popular Far Cry series of games but will be set back in the stone age. You play as Takkar a hunter for his tribe who ends up rising to power and leading them. Far Cry: Primal was announced in October after Ubisoft held a live stream, even though it was leaked earlier. Quantum Break is the next game from Remedy Entertainment that was announced way back in 2013 with a plot based around manipulating time and using it in fights. It was at Gamescom earlier this year that the full cast of characters was announced including Shawn Ashmore as the main character. This cast is also going to be filming a live action series that we will be getting a first look at tonight.
From the above trailer we know that we will also learn who is going to be added next to the Mortal Kombat X roster, get more info on the upcoming The Walking Dead: Michonne Telltale games series, a special announcement about Rocket League, and even some new game reveals.
Moving away from the Game Awards promotional material Geoff Keighley has been tweeting and retweeting a lot giving us even more hints for what to expect. There have been tweets about Goat Simulator with a reveal, Shaq with a reveal and that Shawn Layde, Phil Spencer and Reggie Fils-Aime of PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo respectively will be attending.
I'm heading to @thegameawards on Thursday in LA, have a little Shaq Fu surprise for you videogame fan.

There are also Game Awards sales for the games that are nominated for various categories. These sales are across all platforms so whether you’re on Steam, Xbox or PlayStation there might just be a sale for you.
It’s not just games too as apparently Deadmau5 will be playing brand new music including a tribute to some of his favorite games and Steve Aoki will be playing a remix of Punch-Out!
