In case you missed it, the 25th annual DICE Awards took place February 24th, and the dueling Lombaxes from Sony Interactive Entertainment were the big winners from the show.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart took home four awards, among them the award for “Outstanding Achievement in Animation”. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart also had the honors of being the game with the most award nominations in an impressive list of other standout titles which included It Takes Two, Halo Infinite, Resident Evil Village, Forza Horizon 5, Deathloop, and Returnal.
Speaking of Returnal and Deathloop, those PlayStation exclusives managed to win awards as well. Returnal nabbed awards for both “Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition” and “Outstanding Achievement in Audio Design” while Deathloop received the award for “Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction”.
