"This year's show will celebrate the act of creation, as I turn the stage over to a group of visionary teams selected to share their new projects with you" Keighley tweeted.

As with previous years, the event will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets are available now from $70 to $200, and you can watch the livestream of the event for free on all major digital, gaming, and social platforms.

New features this year include being able to vote for games on Discord, or using your voice with Alexa or Google voice.

Last year’s event saw Red Dead Redemption 2 walk away with most awards, though it was God of War that won the coveted Game of the Year title. We also saw reveals for The Outer Worlds, Hades, and The Last Campfire, along with a trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, among others.

More people tuned in to the 2018 event than ever before, with viewing figures more than doubling to over 26.2 million people.

Keighley added that this year’s nominees, game premieres, performances, and "other details" would be released in the coming weeks. As for what 2019 titles will be honored, I’d expect to see Apex Legends, Metro Exodus, Mortal Kombat 11, the Resident Evil 2 remake, and Gears 5 nominated for some awards.

Geoff is probably an alright dude but I can't stand the amount of cringe that he creates on stage.

Last year TGA managed to avoid the really cringe worthy moments of previous events. It was actually a decent event.
