Naysayers are in shambles as Elden Ring wins yet another award, with one more GOTY under the belt.

Elden Ring has once again proven it is a giant release by From Software , even though it's had a fair share of vocal detractors, some famously claiming it will never be a game of the year.

Well, after winning that exact honour at The Game Awards, Elden ring has repeated the feat at New York Game Awards as it once again beat the main competition in God of War Ragnarok.

That is not all, however, as the game also won the Statue of Liberty Award for Best World, which is not that surprising once you get to witness a few vistas in The Lands Between.

From Software Elden Ring - Erdtree in all its glory Elden Ring - Erdtree in all its glory

From Software is still keeping quiet about Elden Ring DLC but all signs are now pointing there should be more for the game in the future - it wouldn't make much sense to just abandon all this success and hype, right?
