The two games pretty much swept the board.

Elden Ring and God of War: Ragnarok were the big winners at the 26th Annual DICE Awards, with both titles walking home with multiple awards.

While Elden Ring took the coveted Game of the Year Award, God of War: Ragnarok completely mopped the floor of Resorts World Las Vegas resort, mall, and casino.
