Bethesda's cosmic odyssey, Starfield, may have missed the mark at The Game Awards, but its journey through the awards cosmos is far from over, with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) nominating the title for three distinguished accolades.

Despite only gracing the gaming universe since its September 6 release, Starfield has swiftly garnered recognition for its creative excellence, securing nominations in the categories of New Intellectual Property, Technical Achievements, and Narrative.

The game stands among a constellation of 59 other titles in the BAFTA long list, which includes high-caliber contenders like Baldur’s Gate 3 and Final Fantasy XVI. BAFTA members are set to cast their votes for Best Game and British Game, while the remaining categories will be deliberated by select juries.

Notably, Starfield has already clinched the Xbox Game of the Year title at the Golden Joystick Awards, demonstrating its gravitational pull in the gaming world. With over 5 million players since launch, including 1 million early access participants, "Starfield" continues to chart a course through the gaming galaxy, leaving an indelible mark on both players and critics alike.
