The nominations for the Third Annual GDC Online Awards are up
, and Star Wars: The Old Republic
is represented across the board. BioWare's
sci-fi MMO netted six nominations, including one for Online Innovation.
That's not to say that SWTOR
is the only MMO in the running; quite the contrary. Glitch
is up for Best Online Game Design, World of Warcraft
has a shot at Best Community Relations, RIFT
is a strong contender for Best Live Game, and TERA
might snag Best Online Visual Arts -- and that's just the tip of the iceberg. There's also a broader Audience Award that encompasses an even wider field.
2012's Game Developers Conference Online
is taking place from October 9th through 11th and will be keynoted by John Smedley
