Following the first batch of gamescom award winners, the Cologne, Germany video gaming confab has determined the recipients of its most coveted honors. In addition to the six additional juried categories and the best-in-show prize, the winners of the six fan-voted categories were also announced during the ceremony on the Red Bull stage.

More than 100 submissions were received by the show’s award office this year, once again managed by the Digital Games Culture Foundation.

The “Best of gamescom” award for 2018 went to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice from Activision.
