2018 is upon us, but that doesn’t mean all the awards for video games haven’t been dolled out yet. The nominees for the 21st DICE Awards have been revealed, and horror games are once again given notice.
Formerly known as the Interactive Achievement Awards (IAAs), the DICE Awards are awards that recognize the year’s best videogames, computer games, online entertainment, outstanding individuals, and groundbreaking development teams “that have propelled the advancement of the entertainment software industry”.
Apart from the big hits last year with Horizon Zero Dawn (which leads with ten nominations) and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (six nominations), horror fans have Ninja Theory’s psychological horror game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (five nominations), Bethesda’s Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (three nominations), Giant Sparrow’s What Remains of Edith Finch (two nominations), Tarsier Studios’ Little Nightmares (one nomination), and Epic Games’ Fortnite (one nomination).
The winners will be revealed on February 22 at the 2018 DICE Awards ceremony in Las Vegas. To see the categories and nominees, head here.
