BAFTA Games Awards 2019 nominations and how to watch the ceremony


The BAFTA Games Awards 2019 will soon be upon us, and the nominations for this year’s event have been announced.

Unsurprisingly, blockbuster games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and God of War are dominating a lot of categories, with the latter racking up 10 nominations while Rockstar’s Wild West epic has landed six.

Some stand-out indie games have made quite a dent too, with pirate puzzle adventure Return of the Obra Dinn and mobile narrative title Florence also nabbing six nominations. Platformers Celeste and GRIS are also up for awards in several categories

This year also sees the introduction of the EE Mobile Game of the Year Award, which sees the public vote for the mobile title that offers the best experience over a network, either with multiplayer or through innovative use of online features. If you fancy taking part in the vote, you can pick your favourite on the EE website here.

As for the awards ceremony itself, the event takes place on Thursday April 4 at Queen Elizabeth Hall on the London Southbank. Comedian Dara O’Briain will be hosting the show, making for his ninth stint as compere.

To watch the ceremony live, you can tune in to the livestream starting at 6.30pm on the official BAFTA Games Twitter, Twitch and Facebook account pages.
