The annual Game Awards event are about to get underway, and right before everything is about to kick off show-runner Geoff Keighley has announced The Game Festival.

The Game Festival is a new "digital consumer event concept" that will be apart of The Game Awards this year. According to the blog post, The Game Festival is a first-of-its-kind digital consumer event that will give gamers a hands-on experience with soon-to-be-released games through demos. For this year's award show, The Game Festival will launch a digital pilot program on Steam that will allow gamers to play a dozen demos of upcoming games.

The window if playable opportunity only lasts for 48 hours, but for those 48 hours, players will be able to download demos from some of the most highly anticipated games. Keighley says that The Game Festival is designed from the ground up to be an event without barriers as he says that he understands that not everyone can physically attend the award show. Keighley calls The Game Festival "a completely digital approach to the consumer event space". The full list of the game demos has been provided in the entirety of this post.
