Fallout 4 has been awarded the Best Game honour at last night's BAFTA Games Awards beating The Witcher 3, Metal Gear Solid V, and Life is Strange.

The BAFTA Games Awards took place last night with Fallout 4 scooping the Best Game award.

It overcame strong competition from The Witcher 3, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Life is Strange, and Rocket League to claim the honour.

While The Witcher 3 has won awards left, right, and centre to date, it was a less successful night than usual for CD Projekt Red and its sprawling game. Despite six nominations, The Witcher 3 left empty-handed.

Her Story left with three awards (Game Innovation, Mobile & Handheld, and Debut Game), as did Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (Performer, Music, and Audio Achievement), Rocket League won two (Sports and Family), and Life is Strange walked away with a BAFTA for Story.
