Control and Death Stranding dominate Bafta games awards nominations

Two titles have received the highest number of nominations for the 2020 Bafta games awards. 

Hideo Kojima’s elegiac adventure Death Stranding and Remedy Entertainment’s science-fiction thriller Control both have received 11 nominations.

The other games with most of the nominations include the detective role-playing game Disco Elysium, last year’s cult hit Untitled Goose Game and nostalgic Goonies-inspired adventure Knights and Bikes.

Games nominated in the best game category are Control, Untitled Goose Game, Disco Elysium, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Outer Wilds.

This year’s ceremony will be introducing four new categories: animation, technical achievement, performer in a leading role and performer in a supporting role.

Kojima will receive the Bafta fellowship, following creators such as Shigeru Miyamoto, Will Wright and John Carmack. 

The awards ceremony will take place on 2 April at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. Dara Ó Briain will be returning as the host.
