Although 2020 has not been one of the best years for many people around the world, the video game industry has seen the best in its history and it has improved with the launch of very important games. Like every year, various ceremonies are organized to reward the best titles. One of the most important, the DICE Awards will take place very soon and today the list of nominees has just been unveiled, led by 2 PlayStation 4 exclusives.

As every year, the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS) will organize its awards, which this year will be the 24th edition. The title that captures the most attention on this occasion is The Last of Us: Part II, which is positioned as the favorite of the ceremony with a total of 11 nominations in 10 categories.

“Congratulations, dogs!” Studio co-president and writer Neil Druckmann tenderly spoke to Naughty Dog employees upon hearing the news. “To be nominated by other developers is a great honor.”

Ghost of Tsushima also won the nominations

Another title that is also shaping up to be one of the most awarded is Ghost of Tsushima, which managed to receive 10 nominations.
