Xbox Series S + Elden Ring
$360 $319.98 at Amazon
You get the console and the game and you save $40 overall. Not a bad bundle deal considering it was hard enough just to find the console in stock a few months ago.
What can be said that hasn't already been said about Elden Ring? Read our review that calls it FromSoftware's magnum opus. Miles Dompier adds that it's "a masterclass in open-world game design. FromSoftware has poetically fashioned a gorgeously haunting universe that begs to be explored. It's a quintessential action RPG and an obvious contender for game of the year."
Like many of the games in the Dark Souls world, it can be frustrating and difficult. But also like those games, it gives you every tool you need to succeed. If you can make it past that initial burst of frustration, what you find on the other side is extremely rewarding. The game itself is beautiful, and the gameplay is deep and immersive.
And then there's the console. The Xbox Series S is the all-digital console in Xbox's latest generation. That's fine because your new game comes in the form of a digital code. You can also get Xbox Game Pass to access basically every great game on Xbox digitally, including Halo Infinite, Skyrim, and Mass Effect. In between journeys to the Land Between in Elder Ring, you can use the console to stream 4K content and binge your favorite shows on all of your favorite apps.
