A formidable fight that will be played out between God of War: Ragnarok and Elden Ring in particular, even if others have been named in this same category, namely Stray, A Plague Tale: Requiem, Horizon: Forbidden West and Xenoblade Chronicles 3. However, in addition to this award and many others (Best Direction, Best Narration, Best Artistic Direction, Best Music, etc.), the event will take advantage, as usual, to reveal a lot of new information.

You have surely understood, Naoki Yoshida, one of the thinking heads of Final Fantasy XVI will be present at the Game Awards. The event also promises a “very special live presentation”. If we can easily expect to have new gameplay images of the PlayStation 5 exclusivity, there is a good chance that this will also be the opportunity for Square Enix to strike a blow and finally reveal the date long-awaited release.
