'God Of War' Wins Big With Nine Awards At The 2019 DICE Awards

'God Of War' Wins Big With Nine Awards At The 2019 DICE Awards

The annual DICE awards, held by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, took place yesterday, and the PS4 exclusive God of War won big time, grabbing nine of its 23 nominations. Oh, boy.

This included the prestigious award of game of the year, and the single-player adventure also took home the top prize in story, design and art direction categories.

The well-deserved runner-up in number of awards was the mountain-climbing platformer Celeste. It received action game of the year and outstanding achievement for an independent game - and it was one of our own Games of the Year for 2018, alongside God of War.

Among all the awards to games, the ceremony also recognised the contributions to the industry of Bonnie Ross, current boss at 343 Studios, the developers of Halo, by giving her the Academy's Hall of Fame Award.
