Alien: Isolation Leads BAFTA Game Awards with Six Nominations

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts have released the nominees for their annual Game Awards with Alien: Isolation leading the pack. The Creative Assembly developed horror game garnered six nominations, including Best Game.

Far Cry 4 and Monument Valley weren’t far behind with five nominations a piece. Destiny, Mario Kart 8, 80 Days, and Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor garnered four nominations each. What helped put Alien: Isolation ahead of the pack is that it was developed by a British studio, and thus eligible to be nominated for British Game. Far Cry 4 (Canada), Destiny (U.S.A.), and Mario Kart (Japan) among others were not developed by British companies are were ineligible for nomination.

The BAFTA Game Awards winners will be announced March 12 at the Tobacco Dock in London. The event will be livestreamed on Twitch for those unable to make it.
