Today, The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences announced the winners for the 24th annual D.I.C.E. Awards in a livestream. If you missed the proceedings, fret not; we’ve got you covered.

The big winner was Supergiant Games’ Hades, which beat out Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima, and Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2 for Game of the Year. Hades also lead the pack with 5 total awards, also winning Outstanding Achievement for Game Direction, Outstanding Achievement for Game Design, Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game, and Action Game of the Year.

Ghost of Tsushima took home four awards, with wins for Adventure Game of the Year, Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction, Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition, and Outstanding Achievement in Audio Design.

The Last of Us Part 2 and Half-Life: Alyx were the only other games to win multiple awards, each winning two apiece. The Last of Us Part 2 won Outstanding Achievement in Animation and Outstanding Achievement in Story. Half-Life: Alyx won Immersive Reality Technical Achievement and Immersive Reality Game of the Year.

The winners aren’t surprising. While The Last of Us Part 2 spent most of the year as an early favorite, Hades was clearly the game to beat once awards season rolled around. You can check out the rest of the winners here, and watch the awards ceremony below, courtesy of IGN.
