Shadow of Mordor leads GDC nominations


Nominations have been announced for the Game Developers Choice Awards, and orc-slaying epic Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor leads the pack with five nods.

It's up for Game of the Year, Best Design, Best Narrative, Best Technology and the Innovation Award.

Also up for Game of the Year are Bayonetta 2, Destiny, Alien: Isolation and Hearthstone. Developer Respawn is among the nominations for Best Debut for mech-meets-parkour shooter Titanfall, while the Best Design category also includes Shovel Knight, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Hearthstone.

Meanwhile, Shadow of Mordor will be facing Destiny, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Elite: Dangerous and Far Cry 4 in the Best Technology category.

As is traditional, there is also an Audience Award, voting for which will begin in February. The awards themselves will be held at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in March.
