The 27-year-old has opened up about his love of the game in the past. When he appeared in May on The hottesthe revealed that he was unable to have music on while playing Elden Ring because it made him feel uncomfortable.

“I completely turn off the music [in Elden Ring] because it’s crazy. It’s literally like choirs – no angels, [but] of demons. And they say, ‘We’re going to fuck you up.’ There’s no way to live,” Malone explained. “After a fight, I’m shaking like this, so I have to go out and smoke and I’m like, ‘I need to decompress.'”
