PC Gamer UK October issue: Evolve

Phil Savage at

Release the Kraken! Hunt the Kraken! Stop the Kraken! Panic at the Kraken! These and other Kraken-based activities are at the centre of Evolve, Turtle Rock's 4-vs-1 multiplayer shooter. We sent the monstrous Ben Griffin to take a look at the game, and he came back, not only with a hands-on report on the Left 4 Dead successor, but also bathed in the blood of multiple games journalists. We didn't ask questions.

Also, this issue, exclusive gifts. We're giving away a free starter kit for Might & Magic: Duel of Champions, and a Crimson Portal effect for Path of Exile. The issue, which is in shops now, can be ordered through My Favourite Magazines. Digitally, you'll find it on the App Store, Google Play, and Zinio, and you can subscribe to get issues delivered directly to your door. Read on for a look at the subs cover, and a round-up of the features to be found in issue 270.
