The BAFTA Games Awards 2024 were another success for Larian. Their role-playing game won five awards, but Nintendo can also celebrate

You could almost think that Baldur’s Gate 3 is a pretty good game. Larian’s latest role-playing masterpiece is still winning prizes at international awards ceremonies in 2024, including the BAFTA Games Awards.

The developers can now put five more prizes on their shelf. We list all the winners of the BAFTA Games Awards 2024

These prizes were won by Baldur’s Gate 3

Four awards went to the game itself, namely:

  • Best Game
  • Music
  • Narrative
  • EE Player’s Choice (Audience Award)

The BAFTAs were accepted jointly by the Larian team. Composer Borislav Slavov, who has already worked with the studio on Divinity: Original Sin, is obviously particularly pleased… On X (formerly Twitter) he thanked them effusively  for the award for his work

Another award (Performer in a Supporting Role) went to an actor from Baldur’s Gate 3: Andrew Wincott, who embodies and voices the devilish Raphael. It was his first ever motion capture role – and not an easy experience, as he recounts in his acceptance speech:

These are all the winners of the BAFTA Games Awards
