God of War BAFTA Games Awards 2019 Nominations PS4 PlayStation 4

The BAFTA Games Awards is about to get into full swing, and it's just released its list of nominees. As has become somewhat of a trend, it's Santa Monica Studio's God of War at the front of the pack with a total of 10 nominations. The Performer category is where the game excels, with four nominations out of six, but it's also in the running for Artistic Achievement, Game Design, Best Game, and more.

A bunch of other PlayStation 4 exclusives are also recognised with a few nods each. Detroit: Become Human and Marvel's Spider-Man are up for art and audio awards, while the latter is also nominated for Narrative. Astro Bot Rescue Mission, which has often been overlooked at these shows, is nominated for Game Innovation, Game Design, and Best Game. Tetris Effect is also rightly recognised with nods for both audio and music.

Plenty of other great games are up for awards, too, including Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Celeste, Overcooked 2, and plenty more. Check out the full list of categories and nominees below.
