Alien: Isolation leads this year's list of BAFTA nominees

Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation narrowly beat out competition from Far Cry 4 and Monument Valley to claim the greatest number of nominations for the 2015 BAFTA awards.

Today the British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced the nominees for its 2015 video game awards, and Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation narrowly beat out competition to claim the greatest number of nominations.

The awards are notable because they aim to honor the most well-realized and innovative games developed across all realms of the industry, from small-scale mobile games to traditional big-budget projects.

Alien: Isolation is up for a total of 6 awards, including awards for Best Game of 2015, Audio Achievement and Game Innovation. 

It's followed closely by both Monument Valley and Fary Cry 4, which each netted 5 nominations across award categories like Artistic Achievement, Audio, Best Game and Best British Game.
