The Frome Software title beat out competitors such as A Plague Tale: Requiem, God of War Ragnarok, Horizon Forbidden West, Stray, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

It was the game director for Elden Ring Hidetaka Miyazaki who accepted the Game of the Year award on stage, who thanked the developers at From Software and the publisher itself.
