BAFTA has added new categories to its game awards: Debut Game, Online – Browser, Online – Multiplayer and Performer. The Debut award will be handed to a studio releasing its first game during the same year the award is given, and the performance award will be handed to either voice or motion work. The Online browser award is self explanatory, and Online multiplayer can apply to any game which has online multiplayer capabilities. The BAFTAs take place on Friday, March 16, and nominations open on February 16. Thanks, GI.biz.
