The Spike TV Video Game Awards, recently renamed VGX, will take place on Saturday, December 7. Several companies have teased appearances, and we can expect plenty of new trailers and game announcements alongside the awards ceremony. The official VGX announcement has just been made, giving us a better look at what we can expect. You can catch all the information after the jump.
VGX Reveals First Wave of Exclusive Content to be Streamed During Live Multi-Platform Gaming Binge Focused on World Premieres and Breaking News
VGX, the inaugural all-day live multi-platform gaming event, revealed today that it will include a special one-night only performance of the music of Grand Theft Auto V, featuring a host of artists from the game’s soundtrack and score, and streamed on VGXLIVE.com and across all screens and gaming devices worldwide.
VGX also announced that South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will be on hand along with an exclusive sneak peek of the highly anticipated game South Park: The Stick of Truth. Additionally, VGX unveiled its first wave of exclusive world premieres that will be debuted during the three-hour live stream on Saturday, December 7, beginning at 6:00 PM ET / 3:00 PM PT.
The new VGX format dives deeper into the world of gaming and extends its coverage beyond awards presentations. Fans will have unprecedented access to the industry’s top developers and talent and more exclusive world premieres than ever including exclusive new looks at Titanfall, Quantum Break, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Broken Age, Dying Light, Tom Clancy’s The Division and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. VGX will also feature Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime presenting a new look at an upcoming Wii U game. Additional exclusives to be revealed shortly.
It’s worth noting that Nintendo has typically shied away from this awards show in the past, so whatever they have planned (doesn’t sound like a previously unannounced game, based on the language used) should be pretty important. Lots of AAA titles will be on display, but indie games like Broken Age will be making an appearance as well.
