These are the winners of the Gamescom 2018 Awards

1 min read


The Gamescom Awards are always a little weird. The nominees for this year’s Gamescom Awards were announced well before Gamescom itself kicked off. For games to have been nominated, the publishers had to have paid a nominal fee, along with a host of other little rules – which makes them all a little suspect. In the end the winners were decided upon by a group of judges from German and international publications and retailers. Here’s who they selected as winners of Gamescom this year
