The 19th DICE Award Winners for 2016 have been announced.

The awards themselves took place on the 18th of February and everyone was able to see the event live via YouTube (Steam now over). Both games and individual developers were honored by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.

No one can say more about D.I.C.E awards than themselves “Since 1996, the D.I.C.E. Awards have recognized games, individuals and development teams that have contributed to the advancement of the multi-billion dollar worldwide entertainment software industry. The D.I.C.E. Awards are the most credible, respected and recognized awards for the interactive entertainment community with voting cast by members of the Academy’s 22,000+ membership base…”(more)
