Playground Games and Turn 10 Studios can add another award to the trophy cabinet this week after Forza Horizon 4 took home Racing Game of the Year at the 2018 D.I.C.E Awards.
Hosted by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS), 23 awards were given out to the most exceptional games released over the past 12 months.
In the racing category for this year, three titles were nominated: Forza Horizon 4, F1 2018, and Wreckfest, with Playground’s open-world racer coming out on top.
Horizon 4 continues to bring home silverware for Playground, adding to the ever-growing list of accolades for the franchise. As you may recall, Horizon 4 won Sports/Racing Title of the Year at the 2018 Game Awards back in December.
The game that dominated at D.I.C.E was God of War, taking nine awards including overall “Game of the Year”. Independent action game Celeste was the only other title to win multiple awards, taking home two prizes.
Horizon 4 took control of the genre in a softer year for blockbuster racing games in 2018, with no releases of Gran Turismo, Forza Motorsport, or Project CARS. With its regular seasonal changes and content updates, the game remains a critical (check out our Forza Horizon 4 review!) and commercial success.
Congratulations to the entire team at Playground on their latest award!
