The blurb teases: “In our 18-page cover story, we take on the game’s first major boss, explore previously unrevealed areas of the open world, journey to the magical Roundtable Hold, and delve into dungeons big and small. The world of Elden Ring has no shortage of secrets to find, and we discover some fascinating mysteries during our brief foray into The Lands Between. In addition, Hidetaka Miyazaki discusses numerous facets of the game with us, from George R.R. Martin’s exciting collaborative aspects to a rekindled love for creating poisonous swamp environments.
To kick off the New Year, Game Informer is delivering all of the major cover stories. Horizon Forbidden West was the subject of an exclusive storey in the last issue, and now it’s back with another February favourite: Elden Ring. A preview based on a whopping 10-hours of gameplay will be included, as well as excerpts from a one-hour interview with famed game director Hidetaka Miyazaki.
