  • God of War is the Game of The Year 2018
  • Rockstar Games wins big

PUBG Mobile which was highly expected by a relatively wider section of the gamers to win in the Best Mobile Game of the year category in The Game Awards 2018, has lost out to Florence which is now officially the Best Mobile Game of 2018 at the awards. Florence has been developed jointly by Annapurna Interactive and Mountains.

Here, it is worth noting that there was direct competition  between Fortnite and PUBG Mobile; with none of these managing a win. This in despite of the latter clocking more than 30 million players online at given time intervals, and making it to the top of Google Play with respect to favorite games of Android mobile users. Fortnite won in the Best Multiplayer category.

With Florence bagging the Mobile Game of The Year award, it only becomes imminent to check out other winners across categories. Check these details out below:

Game of the Year: God of War; developed by SIE Santa Monica Studio, Javaground, Ready at Dawn, and Daybreak Game Company
