The 2020 BAFTA Game Awards nominees have been announced with Control and Death Stranding leading with 11 nominations, Disco Elysium with seven nominations, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Life is Strange 2, and Outer Wilds tied with five nominations.
There are 18 categories for this year’s awards including new categories such as Animation and Technical Achievement, while the Best Performer award has been split into two: “Performer in a Leading Role” and “Performer in a Supporting Role.”
The nominees for Best Game are Control, Disco Elysium, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Outer Wilds, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Untitled Goose Game. Most of the titles in the list were nominated for other game of the year awards, such as the D.I.C.E. Awards and now-postponed GDC Awards, though Untitled Goose Game already won the D.I.C.E Game of the Year Award and was also nominated for the Independent Games Festival Award as well.
The only category open to voting by the public is the EE Mobile Game of the Year, which can be voted on here, and includes Call of Duty: Mobile, What the Golf?, and 2016’s Pokemon Go.
Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima will also receive the Fellowship, “the highest accolade that BAFTA can bestow.” The full list of nominees can be found on the BAFTA website, and the award ceremony will take place on April 2 at 1:30 p.m. ET from the official BAFTA Twitch channel.
