God of War PS4 PlayStation 4 1

God of War rounded out its impressive trophy haul by sweeping the BAFTAs, securing an eye-watering five awards on the evening. Sony Santa Monica’s epic PlayStation 4 exclusive scored for Best Music, Best Narrative, and Audio Achievement. Meanwhile, voice actor Jeremy Davies took home the Best Performer trophy for his role as the Stranger, while Kratos naturally walked away with the coveted Best Game gong. Red Dead Redemption 2 went home empty handed on the night.

Elsewhere, indie title Yoku’s Island Express won Best Debut, while Fortnite won the Evolving Game award. Sadly there was no love for Astro Bot Rescue Mission, which was beaten by Nintendo Labo for Game Innovation. The full list of winners is included below:
