World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King
has been nominated for yet another award -- this time, Wrath
has received a nod for Best Game of the Year by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Videogame awards. UK residents can vote for the game right now
over on their site, and a nice set of prizes, including a big TV, a Playstation 3, and copies of all ten nominated games going to one lucky voter. Voting is closed on March 9th, and the winners should be announced soon after that.
And in case you've been wondering about the AIAS nominations we mentioned
a little while ago, Blizzard is going about 33%. While they did win the award for best MMO game of the year (beating out Warhammer Online
), Wrath of the Lich King lost its other two categories
-- Left 4 Dead
was awarded Best Computer Game, and Metal Gear Solid 4
won for Best Music over the Lich King
's silky tones.
Guess you can't win them all. But considering that the second expansion of a years-old MMO is still garnering honors, Blizzard has nothing to be ashamed of.
