The finalists for the fourth international 2020 VR Awards have been announced, with Asgard’s Wrath, Half-Life: Alyx and more in contention for the coveted VR Game of the Year award.

The international VR Awards aim to gather some of the biggest names of the industry to celebrate and recognize some of their biggest achievements and milestones over the last year in the world of virtual reality.

This year, the show will move to a virtual format in light of COVID-19, and will be hosted entirely in VRChat on November 12. In previous years, the VR Awards hosted a big ceremony in London — you can view our summary of the 2019 awards here.
