At the Golden Joystick Awards, the users decide who goes home victorious and who has to live with the shame of losing. This year From Software is pleased about numerous awards.
The Golden Joystick Awards were presented for the 40th time. The event is presented by GamesRadar+, but the community decides on the prices.

In addition, Soulslike was awarded “Best Visual Design”, “Best Multiplayer Game” and the “Critic’s Choice Award”, and From Software was also named “Studio of the Year”.
