The 2018 Game Awards, hosted by Geoff Keighley, begins at 6PM PT / 9PM ET.
The 2018 Game Awards is LIVE tonight starting at 6PM PT / 9PM ET. The show has been around for many years as a celebration of the gaming industry by providing a dedicated show for awards for games, new game announcements, discussions, and more.
Tonight, Epic Games has stated that they will be part of The Game Awards to announce some new things that are coming to Fortnite. It has been teased that players should ‘keep your game close’ as the announcement may revolve around something going live in game immediately following the announcement.
“Thursday during The Game Awards don’t miss a Fortnite announcement and world premiere from Epic’s Donald Mustard.”
Keighley teased on Twitter, in another tweet, that the Creative Mode was just ‘part 1 of the story’ for Fortnite, and that Epic Games Worldwide Creative Director Donald Mustard is a ‘mad scientist.’
Fortnite is adding a creative mode. That's part 1 of the story…. tomorrow night at #TheGameAwards things are about to get even crazier. Always the case when mad scientist 👨🔬 @DonaldMustard is around. Make sure to keep your game close by… https://t.co/dyM3yZFg6P
