What’s your pick?

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has presented its full list of nominees for the 2020 BAFTA Games Awards, which will take place in London in April.

In a huge list of categories – which includes gongs for Narrative, Animation, Family appeal and Multiplayer quality –  Death Stranding, Control, Untitled Goose Game, Life is Strange 2 and Disco Elysium all find themselves leading the charge, having been nominated for multiple awards.

The BAFTA Games Awards also gives some smaller British titles an opportunity to shine, such as Foam Sword’s Knights and Bikes, which is listed in no less than four categories. The winners will be decided by the BAFTA global membership, which is comprised of a body of veterans from various aspects of the video game industry.

You can check out the lengthy list of nominees below. The BAFTA Games Awards will take place April 2 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, hosted once again by comedian Dara O’ Briain. The event will also be live-streamed across various social media outlets.
