Death Stranding PS4

The nominees for next month's Game Awards, hosted by Geoff Keighley, have just been announced and it looks set to be a very big night for Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding. The PlayStation 4 console-exclusive has received nine nominations across a total of eight different categories, including the all-important Game of the Year prize.

Death Stranding is nominated for Best Narrative, Best Art Direction, Best Score/Music, Best Performance for both Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen, Best Audio Design, Best Action/Adventure Game, Best Game Direction, and finally, Game of the Year.

Other titles that make up the Game of the Year category are Control, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Resident Evil 2, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and The Outer Worlds. That's not the only Sony-published title up for an award, however, as Blood & Truth could swoop the prize for Best VR Game. Apex Legends also features prominently in various multiplayer-focused categories. Expect it to do well at The Game Awards on 12th December too.
