The Game Awards 2018 Will be Streamed by JioTV

If you’re looking for a way to watch The Game Awards 2018 on any of the non-traditional streaming services, fret not because JioTV has your back.

According to our sources at Spiel Times, JioTV will be streaming The Game Awards 2018 live. While not officially announced yet, we have checked and verified the validity of this information. If you’re looking for the schedule of the show in IST, we’ve got you covered.

Pre-Show: 7AM IST

The Show Begins: 7:30AM IST

The Post Show: 10AM-10:30AM IST

 

We highly suggest you tune in for this event because not only will we see a lot of awards distribution, we will also see a lot of game reveals, announcements and we will get to know more about already announced upcoming titles.

This is a great initiative from JioTV to stream this event which shows that as popularity for games grows in India, so does demand for it. JioTV is helping achieve that demand by providing a platform for newcomers to watch this event on if they weren’t familiar with Twitch and Youtube Gaming. Plus, since it will be quite early in the morning, you can watch it on your smartphone, in bed on an Indian platform.

This also shows the global market that India is growing fast and should be considered a viable market for games when it has been ignored plenty of times in the past due to the fact that there wasn’t much demand.

Superman: World’s Finest, Rocksteady’s Next Game Leaked?

Everybody wants to know what Rocksteady’s next game will be and they’ve done a good job keeping it under wraps for a really long time but it might have just slipped out.

Over on GameSystemRequirements, a listing for a game titled Superman: World’s Finest popped up about a day. This listing states the developer of the game to be Rocksteady Studios. Now, there have a been a lot of rumours and “leaks” as to Rocksteady’s next title. Some said it was a Suicide Squad game, others said it was Arkham Insurgency while a few said it was a Superman game. Earlier this year, someone on 4chan “leaked” an image that stated that Superman: World’s Finest would be shown at E3 2018, something that never happened. That leak also said that the game’s villain would be Brainiac and that other DC heroes would also show up.

As to the credibility of GameSystemRequirments, they also listed Devil May Cry 5 a whole month before it’s official reveal. We also looked up other popular rumours to see if those titles existed and the only one that got a hit for existing on their listing was Bully 2. We tried searching for Arkham Insurgency, Harry Potter, GTA VI and Bully 2.

Take this listing as a grain of salt as with all such “leaks” and rumours but I have a feeling that at TGA this year which is just 9 days away we will get an official look at Rocksteady’s next title which could very well be Superman: World’s Finest.

The Game Awards Teases New Announcements, Says It’ll Be Their Biggest Line-Up Yet

The Game Awards is a yearly award show that celebrates Video Games and was created by Geoff Keighley formerly of G4tv. The award show tends to have announcements, new trailers besides the Award Show.

This year seems to be another big year with the biggest ever line-up of games yet.

Devil May Cry 5 is one of the games that will have a new game trailer this year at The Game Awards. We might see Cyberpunk 2077 since we got to see a lot of it at E3, we could get some sort of story trailer and maybe a release date. Death Stranding is another game that might show up at TGA. Back in 2015, Konami had banned Kojima from going to TGA to receive an award for his work on the Metal Gear series which fans really disliked and then later in 2016 he was awarded the Industry Icon award. Maybe Kojima might take the opportunity to showcase his upcoming game at an event that has shown him so much love in the past.


In less than 24 hours the nominees for The Game Awards will be announced and it’s going to be a very tough battle this year because of all the fantastic games that have released in the past year. A lot of fans are rooting for God of War, many for Spider-Man and a huge majority are aboard the Red Dead Redemption 2 hype train, but with so many more games that have left gamers in awe due to how amazing they were, I can’t wait to see which games win the awards this year. The stream will be available on 40 different global video platforms so make sure to tune in on 6th December to see if the game you’ve been rooting for received any awards or not. Even if it didn’t, if you enjoyed it and loved it the most, that’s what matters and no award can change that so, don’t forget that or get upset about it.
