Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice walks away with 5 BAFTA awards

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has dominated last night’s BAFTAs, taking home five awards.

This is quite a big deal for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, which nabbed the Artistic Achievement, Audio Achievement, British Game, Best Performer, and the Game Beyond Entertainment award.

The Best Game was won by What Remains of Edith Finch, beating Horizon Zero Dawn, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Mario Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed: Origins, and Hellblade.

Hellblade was a risky venture for developer Ninja Theory. The studio poured all their money in this years-long project and set out to make an indie game with triple-A production values. After a solid critical reception and not-too-shabby sales, it’s good to see the team’s venture pay off.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which was nominated for Best Multiplayer, Best Evolving Game, and Best Original Property, didn’t win any of them. It lost Best Multiplayer to Divinity: Original Sin 2, Best Evolving Game to Overwatch, and Best New Property to Horizon Zero Dawn.

The only other game to win more than one award was Super Mario Odyssey, which claimed the award for Best Game Design, and Best Family Game.
