The Game Awards are coming up this week, and now we've learned more about the celebrity and musical guests that will appear at the end-of-year awards show. Starting off, the French alt-rock band "Phoenix" will perform; last year's events featured performances by Run the Jewels and Mick Gordon crushing the Doom soundtrack.

New for the 2017 event is what's being called The Game Awards Orchestra, which brings together famous musicians who will perform video game music in a new style. Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Synyster Gates and cellist Tina Guo are among the performers in this supergroup.

Other famous people appearing at The Game Awards this year include Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima and film director Guillermo del Toro, along with actor Norman Reedus. That's a compelling group right there, as they were all slated to work together on Silent Hills before it was canceled. It'll be interesting to see if they have anything to say on the subject. Given del Toro's outspoken nature on the Konami situation. Not only that, but Reedus and del Toro will appear in Kojima's next game, Death Stranding, so this could get interesting.

Additionally, actress Aisha Tyler will appear at The Game Awards, as will actress Felicia Day and actor Zachary Levi. Legendary performance capture actor Andy Serkis will also be at the show, along with Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland. There will be other "surprise guests to be announced" later, organizers said.

The Game Awards take place the evening of Thursday, December 7. There will be some news and reveals at the event, like the first gameplay of PUBG's new desert map. And of course, the awards themselves, including the highly coveted Game of the Year award. Horizon: Zero Dawn, Persona 5, PUBG, Super Mario Odyssey, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are nominated for Game of the Year. You can see a list of nominees for every category here.
