Baldur’s Gate 3 wins Best Game and four more awards at this year’s BAFTAs

The BAFTA Games Awards 2024 winners have been revealed, with this year’s big victor – perhaps unsurprisingly – being Larian Studios’ hugely acclaimed Baldur’s Gate 3.

Baldur’s Gate 3 took home a total of five BAFTAs, coming top in the categories for Narrative, Music, and Best Game. It also won the EE Player’s Choice Award – the only category to be voted for by the general public – and Andrew Wincott was named best Performer in a Supporting Role, for his performance as Raphael in the game.

Tonight’s other multi award winners were Alan Wake 2 – which secured BAFTAs for Audio Achievement and Artistic Achievement – and Super Mario Bros. Wonder, which trumped the competition in the Multiplayer and Family categories. Additionally, clever photography puzzler Viewfinder had two wins: British Game and New Intellectual Property.

Notably, too, UK gaming charity SpecialEffect – which focuses on helping those with physical disabilities, particularly children, play games – was awarded BAFTA’s prestigious Special Award, which recognises “outstanding contributions to film, games, or television”.
