A word of warning: My words, along with the trailer embedded above, contain massive spoilers for the first Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. I don’t normally worry about spoiling a three-year-old game, but considering the PC version of the original game won’t be released until August 27, it makes sense some of you would like to be kept in the dark.
The fan-made Quest for Glory 4 1/2 didn't exactly turn out for the best, but perhaps a game merely inspired by the classic adventure/RPG series will fare better. The gorgeous Heroine's Quest is such a thing, and after four years of development it has just been released for free. For free! You can download this massive roleplaying/adventure hybrid from this link - stick around for a fantastic trailer that will convince you to do just that.
The first time I played Heroes of Newerth, somebody called me a noob. Somebody else chimed that earwigs had more gaming skill than I did. Then these people began to discuss my mother. Needless to say, I bowed out of HoN rather early in my MOBA career. MOBAs are notorious for their prickly communities, but that may soon change—thanks to HoN's own developer, S2 Games, who has revealed that it is developing what it calls a "second generation MOBA." Strife is a narrative-heavy, community-driven game that aims to appeal to newbies and veterans alike.
More Skyrim details have broken in the latest issue of Official Playstation Magazine, with more information on the game's dragons, dragon shouts, dialogue and travel options. Also revealed: horses, revamped city guard and more. Read on for the full scoop.
Humanity is history, but don’t be sad. At least the robots actually miss us in this new point-and-click adventure, and they’re getting on fine by picking through the post-apocalyptic remains of civilisation and turning our trash into their own creations. Horatio is one of those robots, a devout Humanist engineer living in the hull of a ship called The Unniic with his floating sidekick Crispin. When a jerk with a laser blasts in and steals their only power core, the two are left in urgent need of both a replacement and – time permitting – some kind of epic mystery to make their life more interesting.
It's a bit like Minecraft, quite a bit not like Minecraft, and it sure sounds like it's going to be big: earlier this month, SOE announced EverQuest Next Landmark, a surprise voxel building MMO releasing this winter as a precursor to EverQuest Next. Today at PAX we learned some new things about it—female dwarves can have beards, for insistence—which we've condensed here into an easily digestible info pill.
This week in eSports: MLG Winter is finally here! Heart of the Swarm has launched, and now is as good a time as ever to start eSportsing. Plus, competitive gaming has earned itself a spot at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics conference. Have a look at all of this and more inside. gl hf!
Severe hypothermia sets in when the body’s core temperature drops below 28 °C. Human blood freezes solid at -0.5 °C. Soviet and German forces fighting on the Eastern Front faced temperatures that fluctuated between -10 and -30 °C. Over the years, the Russian cold season has taken the lives of so many would-be invaders that it has earned the nickname ‘General Winter’. The truth, however, is that it is an indiscriminate killer.
Raphael van Lierop may have never had to worry about surviving alone in the wilderness, but he's been close enough to sense the threat. Reminiscing about hunters who would accompany him for protection in college while conducting seismic surveys, he told me of tense months he spent in the wilds of British Columbia and Alberta, where news of grizzly attacks would sometimes drift in from other camps. Even now, working from his home on Vancouver Island, reports occasionally surface of unwary hikers getting lost deep in the woods.
What is best in life? If you answered "griefing your co-workers with a violin simulation app," then you just might work at Mojang. Last we heard, the indie developers that brought you Minecraft were getting settled into their new office. Now that they're comfortable, they've got more intimate details they'd like to share with you this week. That's right—intimate, as in the YouTube videos they love and the iPad apps they loathe.
As with so many longform fantasy RPGs, the troubles afflicting the inhabitants of Amalur can all be blamed on the actions of a single mad gnome. Stupid gnomes. This time one of them has decided to build a device called the Well of Souls to bring people back from the dead. You, a third-person fantasy hero, are its first and last success.
Victory or Valhall! With the release of Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods, the time has come once again to weave a stirring saga of war, love, betrayal, and adventure. This is the Crusader Kings Chronicle: Lords of the North. Last week, I threw off the chains of the oppressive Haraldr Fairhair, derailing Norwegian history irreparably and setting up the House of Stórr to one day rule the entire country. Then, out of nowhere, the Swedish king Björn Ironside, son of Ragnarr Loðbrok, declared a subjugation war on me and my people. We take up our swords for freedom once again! Onward!
My friends! Gather 'round the fire and prepare to hear an epic tale that spans the entirety of human history! I'm in the middle of chronicling my progress in Civ V's Gods & Kings expansion, with a new entry every Wednesday. Last week, my Swedish civilization plowed through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Now, with my lines of muskets and cannons on the move for Austria, war on a scale not yet seen by my people is set to commence. Read on, as the sound of gunfire echoes across the continent!
MWAH-HA-HA-HA! That's my evil laugh. Do you like it? I've been practising. A 14GB download, immediately followed by a 6GB content patch, gives you plenty of time to perfect such things. I'd already decided I was going to be a villain, because villains are always more fun than the heroes, but after so much waiting around, I was definitely in the mood to smash shit up in Sony's comicbook MMO. We'll have a full review for you soon enough, but for now, here's what happened in my first few hours.
Every week, Richard Cobbett rolls the dice to bring you an obscure slice of gaming history, from lost gems to weapons grade atrocities. This week, get ready to READ ARTICLE. (Uh. Like normal.) Interactive fiction. Text adventures. In the days before graphics, or at least graphics that didn't make you want to poke your eyes out with a spork, they were what transported us into worlds of endless imagination, and even convinced a hitherto sane world that The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy game was anything other than appalling. As technology moved on, they became more and more of a niche genre - but never stopped evolving or being developed. Today, with powerful creation tools like Inform 7 and advanced world simulations on their side, modern interactive fiction is still capable of incredibly fun, very original concepts. Want to see a quick example? Yes? Well, that's lucky! Here's a quick taste of something only a game without graphics can hope to offer.
Every week, Richard Cobbett rolls the dice to bring you an obscure slice of gaming history, from lost gems to weapons grade atrocities. This week, I can’t take a breath without seeing Mr. Death. But I can’t see Mr. Death... if I don’t take that breath... (taps toes against floor) Time is rarely kind to technology showpieces. As hard as it might be to imagine now, The 7th Guest was one of the games that proved the PC still had some life in it back in 1993. Most games came on floppy disks, with their CD versions treated as a premium edition - full speech 'talkies' being the most common incentive to upgrade. The 7th Guest was one of the first mainstream hits that demanded the extra space, and it showed off every major technology other than real-time 3D. Rendered backgrounds! FMV cut-scenes! CD quality audio! Around a £70 price tag, if I remember correctly! It was one of the most ambitious PC games ever intended, and players couldn't wait to be sucked into its dark world. This is proof that all the technology in the world can't make 'MWAH HA HA! I challenge you... to cut this cake fairly!' seem scary. Unless you're allergic to nuts and worried it might contain some.
Skyrim mods are amazing. For a year and a half the community has been beavering away at every aspect of Bethesda's grand RPG, tinkering with the combat, improving the UI, adding new monsters, quests, followers NPCs and new places to explore. Skyrim was hardly an ugly or short game to begin with, but a few carefully chosen high resolution texture packs, post-processing wrappers and content mods make Skyrim a beautiful and endless adventure. There are thousands of mods out there, which can make choosing them can be a little daunting. We're here to help. Below you'll find 50 of the very finest mods for you to enjoy, divided into categories so you can skip straight to the updates you want. Happy modding!
Hello, friends of PC Gamer. Each month our brave writers put their voices where their mouths are and record the PC Gamer Podcast, just for you.

The Independent Games Festival has turned out another strong field of nominees, some of which you can play entirely for free right now.

There might be no such thing as a free lunch, but there is certainly such a thing as free lunchtime entertainment. Over the following pages you’ll find a list of the best free indie games on PC – from 20-minute diversions to weekend-consuming, endlessly-expanded strategy epics. All of the games on this list are free in their entirety. That means no microtransaction-supported free-toplay games and no shareware. We’ve also excluded ‘pay what you want’ games on the basis that developers who give you the ability to chip-in would probably like you to consider doing that. That said, there are always exceptions and you’ll find games on this list that sit in a grey area – normally where there’s a substantial free version with the option of also buying an upgraded paid edition. In these cases, we’ve gone with our hearts. Which is to say that we argued about it for hours.
