Control NAVGTR Awards

The 19th annual NAVGTR Awards have been officially announced by the National Academy of Video Game Trade Reviewers, a non-profit media organization with 820 media voters and 9,500 subscribers, via press release.

As you may recall, the nominations had Asobo's A Plague Tale: Innocence shining as the game appeared in the shortlist for eighteen of the fifty-seven total categories. However, Remedy's Control ended up snatching the greatest amount of prizes (six). The game won in the following categories: Animation (Technical), Art Direction (Contemporary), Control Design (3D), Direction in a Game Cinema, Graphics (Technical), and Lighting/Texturing.

Other big winners at this year's NAVGTR Awards were Kojima's Death Stranding and Obsidian's The Outer Worlds, which won five prizes each. Asobo snatched four awards (tied with Untitled Goose Game) for A Plague Tale: Innocence, while FromSoftware's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice stopped at three, though one of those was the most coveted one - the Game of the Year. Out of ten nominations, PlatinumGames' Astral Chain only won once in the Original Light Mix Score, New IP category.
