“Assassin’s Creed Syndicate,” “Pillars of Eternity,” “Rise of the Tomb Raider” and “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” have received nominations for the videogame writing award from the Writers Guild of America.

The winner will be announced at the Writers Guild Awards on Feb. 13 at concurrent ceremonies in Los Angeles at the Century Plaza and in New York City at the Edison Ballroom. Judging for the winner is conducted by panels comprised of Videogame Writers Caucus members and/or Writers Guild members active in videogame writing.

Unlike the screenplay feature film awards, the videogame awards are not required to have been written under WGA jurisdiction. To be eligible for WGA consideration, games must have been released between Dec. 1, 2014 and Nov. 30, 2015, and feature on-screen writing credits.

Credited videogame writers must have been or must have applied to become members of the WGA Videogame Writers Caucus at the time scripts were submitted.

The 2015 videogame award went to “The Last of Us: Left Behind,” written by Neil Druckmann.
