Today’s new episode of The Game Informer Show is bursting with everything you need to know about Elden Ring as we discuss why we think developer FromSoftware’s latest adventure lives up to the hype. That’s not all though, as we’re also wishing longtime GI vet Ben Reeves a fond farewell as he sails off to great things at his new position, along with another great round of Listener Questions.
Production Note: Our recording software cut out during the episode, so we apologize for any audio hitches you may encounter. We’ll have everything taken care of next week. We appreciate your understanding.
