‘Deathloop’, ‘Metroid Dread’ Nominated for 2022 BAFTA GOTY
This year’s BAFTA Games Awards nominees have been revealed, and as expected, genre titles are well represented. And given its performance at The Game Awards 2021, Bethesda’s Deathloop is in contention for the publicly-voted EE GOTY. However, it will face off against Nintendo’s Metroid Dread among the nominees.
Surprisingly, Deathloop doesn’t have the most nominations. That would go to EA’s It Takes Two with nine, followed by Housemarque’s Returnal with eight. Deathloop has six nominations overall, including GOTY, Audio Achievement, Best Game, Game Design, Music and Original Property.
Double Fine’s Psychonauts 2 also has six nominations, though it misses out on the EE GOTY and Best Game. 343 Industries’ Halo Infinite has three nominations, while Devolver Digital’s Death’s Door, Capcom’s Resident Evil Village, Square Enix’s Life is Strange: True Colors and ZA/UM’s Disco Elysium: The Final Cut have two nominations each. Turtle Rock Studios’ Back 4 Blood‘s lone nomination is in Best Multiplayer.
Presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), the BAFTA Games Awards will be take place on April 7th, and streamed live on YouTube and Twitch. Check out the full list of nominees here.
