God Of War Wins Game Of The Year At DICE Awards

The 22nd D.I.C.E. Awards took place in Las Vegas tonight, and Sony's God of War was a big winner. The PlayStation 4 exclusive took home nine total awards, including the highly coveted overall Game of the Year.

In addition to that award, God of War won Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction, Outstanding Achievement in Game Design, Adventure Game of the Year, Outstanding Achievement in Story, Outstanding Achievement in Sound Design, Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition, Outstanding Achievement in Character (Kratos), and Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction.

God of War wasn't the only game that won multiple awards, as Celeste picked up Action Game of the Year and Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game. Florence won Portable Game of the Year, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate took home Fighting Game of the Year, and Monster Hunter: World picked up Role-Playing Game of the Year. Fortnite, meanwhile, won for Outstanding Achievement in Online Gameplay. Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 won for Outstanding Technical Achievement, but that was the only award it took home tonight.

You can see the full list of categories and winners below. The D.I.C.E. Awards are not connected to the Swedish developer DICE.

Also during the D.I.C.E. Awards, Bonnie Ross was inducted into the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences' Hall of Fame. The longtime Microsoft employee and head of Halo developer 343 Industries, Ross was praised for her work in growing the Halo franchise and for spearheading efforts to promote STEM and diversity in video games. She is the first woman in the AIAS Hall of Fame, and she joins other big names like Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Valve founder Gabe Newell, and Metal Gear designer Hideo Kojima, among others.
