The prestigious awards gala created by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts is approaching us very quickly. BAFTA, through its official website and social media, announced the list of nominees for each category .

In total, eighteen statuettes will be presented during the ceremony . The greatest number of nominations (nine) was won by Electronic Arts’ hit It Takes Two . The second place is occupied by Returnal , which has won one nomination less. Both of these productions were nominated for the most prestigious category, “Game of the Year” . Apart from them, the list also includes Deathloop , Forza Horizon 5 , Inscryption and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart .

Last year, the title of the best game was won by Supergiant Games, or Hades . In 2020, an identical statuette was won by the title of Outer Wilds , and in 2019, God of War . So it is worth asking yourself which games from 2021 will be awarded during the 18th BAFTA Games gala? Below you will find the full list of nominated productions (two categories, i.e. the best performer of the main role and the best performer of a supporting role will be announced at a later date)! The ceremony itself will take place on April 7 in London .
