This category was perhaps one of the most crucial elements of the show. As, if Star Wars Battlefront 2 or Destiny 2 had been allowed to win, a gamer uprising against The Game Awards was likely imminent.
Geoff Keighley and staff continued to show grace with this year’s awesome show by being diplomatic in how they handled the situation. Although still somewhat controversial, their pick avoided an immeasurable backlash by siding with what the gamers wanted.
Nominees were as follows:
- Destiny 2
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Splatoon 2
- PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds
- Call of Duty: World War II
And the winner is PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds!

News of a brand new map was revealed, and on the spot released, along with a great update patch. The new patch has brought increased engine performance, framerate stability, and even removes bugs such as lagging while using a zoom-in scope.
The 1.0 Update will release “Soon” teases PubG Corp. as a release date was announced for the Xbox Early Access edition of the game. On December 12, 2017 gamers will be able to boot up the Xbox ONE or Xbox ONE X and gain access to a game that is setting the world on fire.
But are the players who are flooding Steam Reviews in protest against gamers who voted the ones who are right this time? Will PubG be here to stay or is it just a phenomenon? We’ve got hopes and conflicts of heart with the title. We want to see the best possible outcome, but there’s more to this story and we are digging deeper.
