The Game Awards will be taking over LA's Microsoft Theater Dec. 7 for another year of video game celebration and honors. The annual award show, which started back in 2014, will once again be hosted by Geoff Keighley, who also happens to be the creator and executive producer of the show. Tickets to check out the event live in Los Angeles are on sale now

This year's awards show will see the addition of The Game Awards Orchestra, an ensemble assembled of "some of the world's most talented orchestral and rock musicians," as explained by Keighley. Alongside special musical guests, the ensemble will bring to life the music of various video games throughout the evening. 

Another new addition to this year's show is the option for fan voting in select categories. Voting will be available online on The Game Award website and also available on Facebook, Twitter and even Google Search.
