Based on a tally that has been tracking picks from every known publication, Elden Ring has beaten God of War Ragnarok in the Game of the Year 2022 standings thus far. Several awards have yet to be added, though given the large gulf in the number of awards given to both games, it’ll highly unlikely that God of War Ragnarok will even the odds, let alone pull ahead.
Elden Ring’s momentum hasn’t come close to slowing down, as the game is reportedly set to receive a whole slew of DLC content, of which the Colosseum is merely the first. Well-known enthusiast of From Software titles Lance McDonald took to Twitter to share that the Colosseum DLC update that Elden Ring recently received is the first of a series of planned content for the title. He added that the Colosseum DLC is called “DLC1” internally, and it was planned to be the first DLC since before the game’s release.
