Producers of The Game Awards on Thursday will lead into that event with a new offering called The Game Festival, an opportunity for gamers to try out new games.
The producer of the event said in a blog post on Medium that the 48-hour event, which begins streaming Thursday at 1 p.m. Eastern Time, will give gamers the chance to download several games they’ll be able to play for two days. The games aren’t streamed – players will download game clients, but will have to be connected to the internet to play.
Today I'm introducing a brand new aspect of #TheGameAwards It's called #TheGameFestival, and tomorrow for 48 hours, you'll get to play 12 new game demos for the first time on @Steam. More details: https://t.co/k4n3guyJxc
