Bethesda joins as an event partner as Xbox doubles down their commitment

A massive shout out to Bethesda and Xbox as they join in supporting this year’s awards.

Bethesda has joined as an event partner and will present the Australian Developed Game of the Year.

The award honors the Best Australian Developed title to release in 2018. This can include titles that were previously released in ‘early access’ form but had their main release this year.

Additionally, Xbox has doubled down their support for this year’s event, sponsoring the Gaming Publication of the Year, which celebrates The Games Media outlet who has produced the best coverage of video games in 2018. Can be across print, online and video.

This follows their support of the Mixer Creator of the Year category.

Massive thanks to both Bethesda and Xbox!
