by Alex Van Aken on Nov 11, 2021 at 04:20 PM

In this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, the crew unveils the latest game to grace the cover of our magazine, Halo Infinite and details our time spent seeing Xbox's flagship title in action. During The Playlist, Dan Tack raves about his nearly 15 hours playing Elden Ring ahead of this weekend's network test, Marcus shares his Bright Memory: Infinite review impressions and Van Aken shares his initial impressions of Battlefield 2042 fresh out of a three-day review event. Fair warning, we talk about the opening moments of the Halo Infinite campaign, so spoiler warning ahead of the section.
