The British Academy (BAFTA) has announced the nominees for this year's BAFTA Game Awards, which look to shine a spotlight on the games industry's best and brightest, and God of War is leading the charge with a whopping 10 nominations.
Santa Monica Studio's acclaimed action romp is up for a number of coveted awards including Best Game, Artistic Achievement, Game Design, Narrative, and Audio Achievement.
It's joined in the upper echelons by familiar faces including Red Dead Redemption 2, Return of the Obra Dinn, and Florence, which all received six nominations apiece, and rambunctious platfomer Celeste, which netted five noms.
Other notable contenders include Life is Strange, Nintendo Labo, My Child Lebensborn, Marvel's Spider-Man, Battlefield V, Tetris Effect, Overcooked 2, Pokemon: Let's Go, Beat Saber, Cultist Simulator, and Donut County.
The winners will be announced on Thursday, April 4, during a presumably glamorous ceremony hosted at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. The entire show will be streamed live online, so don't worry if your invite was lost in the post.
You can find the full list of nominations over on the BAFTA Games website, but we've taking the liberty of reposting some of the more notable categories below.
