Nominees for this year's BAFTA Game Awards have been announced, and developer Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II has broken a new record with the number of nominations it has received. With 13 nominations across categories such as Best Game, Game Design, and Best Performer in a Leading Role, The Last of Us Part II is now the current record-holder for the highest number of nominations any single game has received since the BAFTA Game Awards began in 2004.

Death Stranding and Control held the previous record, each game earning 11 nominations in last year's British Academy of Film and Television Arts Game Awards. The Last of Us Part II will still face some stiff competition for the top prize of Best Game this year, as Ghost of Tsushima, Hades, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Half-Life: Alyx are also in the running.

Ghost of Tsushima has also earned an impressive 10 nominations in total and is contesting The Last of Us Part II in other categories such as Artistic Achievement, Music, and Performer in a Supporting Role.
