The nominations for this year’s awards were unveiled this week, marking the opening of public voting on the official event website.

Competing alongside them are A Plague Tale: Requiem, Horizon: Forbidden West, Stray, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

A notable addition to the awards is the introduction of a new category, Best Adaptation. This category aims to honor exceptional creative work that faithfully and authentically adapts video games into another entertainment medium. Nominees in this category include Arcane: League of Legends, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, The Cuphead Show, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, and Uncharted.

Voting is currently open for these and 29 other categories. Award recipients are primarily determined by an internal committee, though the cumulative votes in each category will influence the final decisions. The Game Awards ceremony will be livestreamed on major platforms such as YouTube and Twitch on December 8, 2022.
