"Best Art Direction" 
With a strong year in gaming, Remedy was up against some tough competition but was announced as the winner in the "Best Art Direction" category. The award was presented by the ever-lovely Ikumi Nakamura, and collected by Mikael and Thomas who spoke on behalf of the team in their acceptance speech on stage.




Announcing "Expeditions"
The developers also shared a new trailer for their gameplay mode, "Expeditions". The new mode tests players with new challenges and new experiences and provides plenty of rewards. While many gamers who owned Control noticed an update patch being installed on their console earlier that day, the news of the free mode available instantly across all consoles was an incredible surprise. If you missed it, you can watch the full trailer below!

To coincide with the reveal, Sergey Mohov (Senior Game Designer), wrote a post for the PlayStation Blog detailing how fans can get started and dive right into the new release. You can read the full article, HERE!




"Sankarin Tango" 
To wrap up the night, The Game Awards featured a medley of tracks from the Game of Year nominees. Featured in the middle was Ahti's song, Sankarin Tango. The song was written by Sam Lake, with music by Petri Alanko, and sung by Martti Suosalo who portrayed the mysterious Ahti in the game. The lyrics are packed with references to Alan Wake, describing a man hidden beneath the waves and fighting against the night. For the night, the piece was beautifully performed on stage with a live orchestra. You can rewatch the moment here:
