Elden Ring has already received a lot of praise and now at this year's Game Awards show, it's officially been crowned the Game of the Year. The other titles nominated in this category included A Plague Tale: Requiem, God of War Ragnarok, Horizon Forbidden West, Stray and Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Apart from winning the biggest award of the night, Elden Ring also won best game direction, best art direction, and best role-playing game. The Xbox Game Studios title As Dusk Falls also took out the "games for impact" award.

In our own Pure Xbox review, we awarded the game an outstanding 10 out of 10 stars - calling it one of the very best video games ever made. Earlier this week the same title also got a free 'Colosseum' update.

In somewhat related news, FromSoftware also unveiled it had officially begun development on Armored Core VI Fires Of Rubicon. You can learn more in our previous post.
