The winners of the ninth annual Game Audio Network Guild awards have been announced, with Rockstar Games' Red Dead Redemption and DICE's Battlefield: Bad Company 2 taking home multiple awards.

Held last week at the Game Developers Conference 2011, the awards represent "the best audio in video games from 2010". The final winners were chosen from a 70 person advisory committee, made up of members of the non-profit GANG organization.

Red Dead Redemption was the big winner of the event, bagging the Audio of the Year, Music of the Year, Best Interactive Score and Best Dialogue awards.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 won two awards, while LucasArts' Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge, Blizzard's StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty and 2K Games' Bioshock 2 took one award each.

GANG president Paul Lipson said "The quality bar from 2010 was so high across the board, it was impossible to predict specific wins. With over 350 submissions this year, just making it to the final nomination process is something all the teams and publishers can be proud of".
