Dirt 3 to have zombie mode. Also features realistic tyre modelling

Codemasters have been talking about their upcoming rally racer. They've already revealed the stunt-tastic Gymkhana mode, but the latest reveal is the oddest yet. Dirt 3 will feature a zombie mode in which players must race to avoid being caught by an infected driver.

IndieGala bundle defies its own name - includes Mass Effect 2

Traditionally, the IndieGala bundle has focused on some of the lesser known indies, especially when compared to the more famous games that headline the Humble Indie Bundles. That's not quite the case this time around. Sure, you can debate the definition of what does and doesn't constitute an indie studio, but I think everyone would agree that Bioware are well outside of that label. Odd then, that Mass Effect 2 is a beat-the-average reward for the Gala's latest collection.

Possible Steam Summer Sale details arise

If you haven't been following the drama afflicting the PC gaming community throughout the warmer months, you may not be aware that Steam is well overdue for its annual, wallet-eviscerating Summer Sale. It's that joyous time of year when we forward our paychecks directly to Valve for lots of cheap reasons to not go outside and face the angry, merciless sun. After having heard barely a peep about its absence from Gabe and Co well into July, a Redditor named Dweezy has stumbled in out of the desert proclaiming that the time is nearly upon us.

Now Playing: Risking death for some vitamin C in Dead Island

This article originally appeared in issue 232 of PC Gamer UK. A hidden menace lurks behind the horror of Dead Island’s undead invasion. The dreadful spectre of vitamin C deficiency. Scurvy would not be high on my list of worries in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse, but who am I to argue? I’m just a high-heeled lady with a cleaver and resistance to zombification.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days preview

The Walking Dead: 400 Days as “connective tissue” between seasons one and two of its episodic adventure game series. The $5 DLC will both draw on some of the choices you made in season one but it’ll also influence the events of season two. Most interestingly, it’ll be broken into five smaller segments, each focusing on a different character: Vince, Shel, Bonnie, Russell, and Wyatt.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days DLC review

Bonnie. Russell. Shel. Wyatt. Vince. Five survivors, five stories set in a zombie apocalypse. And, I suspect, a bit of a trap; a clever title so that if I say "400 Days isn't very long," Telltale's writers can instantly snap back "Are you kidding? It's a year and a bit!" and dance the winner dance all the way back to San Rafael. Luckily, while it only works out as an hour or so of The Walking Dead goodness, it feels longer - five fifteen-ish minute vignettes that hit the ground running and waste little time from there. The disadvantage of this is exactly what you'd expect, that dipping so briefly into these lives doesn't allow for the same connection as hanging out with the same survivors for several months. By cutting right to the point though, Telltale gets to explore a much wider range of stories - and more importantly, characters - than Lee and friends, whose dilemmas had to be designed to last and ripple over a whole series.

Hard Stuff: Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD review

So you’ve got a sweet 5.1 surround sound speaker setup and an awesome gaming library to support it—but if you’re running those speakers via your motherboard’s onboard audio, you may as well be using $20 speakers from your local drugstore. What you need is a dedicated soundcard, and Creative—the pioneer of soundcards for PC gaming—has released its newest flagship warbler: the Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD.

PC Gamer UK December issue - Planetside 2

Planetside is going to be enormous. Its battles will rage across entire continents and support hundreds of players at a time. It will have tanks, ships and, according to the man on our cover, gatling guns with laser sights for precision mass-destruction. You can read all about it in our preview in the latest edition of PC Gamer UK. It hits store shelves today. It's also available online, digitally through Zinio and Apple Newsstand, and it should already be with subscribers now. There are few things less subtle than a gatling gun with a laser site, but Max Payne is one of them. We catch up with the gravelliest hero in gaming on his new adventures in Max Payne 3, chat to Ken Levine about Bioshock Infinite, get rich quickly and horribly in Runescape, play Diablo 3, take a look at the new Syndicate and much, much more. We also give away a load of free stuff. This month our issues come with codes for six free games on Good Old Games, £20 worth of items in Runes of Magic and free money in any Sony MMO.

Saturday Crapshoot: Mean City: Learn English Or DIE!

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, there's only one language some people understand - the language of fear. Welcome to the ESL course Frank Miller would approve of. Mean City. Don't worry, they said, it's just a name. Not necessarily promising mean streets. Maybe they're just proud of their mean population density, or they make a mean curry. What did they mean? There was was only one way to find out, and while nobody had specifically said it would be an idea to bring a fedora, I figured a fedora would be appropriate. If only to cut a mean style...

The future of PC gaming: virtual reality

All week long, we're peering ahead to what the future holds for the PC gaming industry. Not just the hardware and software in our rigs, but how and where we use them, and how they impact the games we play. Here's part three of our five-part series; stay tuned all week for more from the future of PC gaming. Palmer Luckey has dedicated his career to virtual reality and bet millions of investment dollars on the idea, so it’s expected that he would call it “the most exciting technology of the last century.” It’s still a bold statement from the young entrepreneur and founder of Oculus VR, and we told him as much during our chat at CES 2014.

Day Z + Arma 3 interview -- optimization, map design, radios, porting Day Z into Arma 3

I interviewed the creators of Arma 3 and Day Z at E3. This is a continuation of that conversation (read part one of the interview over here), with discussion ranging from engine optimization and what hardware you'll need to run Arma 3 to the possibility of baby monitors appearing in Day Z as usable radios. PCG: Whenever we post an Arma 3 article, we get comments like, "I can hear my graphics card crying." I noticed that you guys recently announced some revised system specs.

10 Cancelled PC Games We Still Want To Play

Every year, thousands of games are pitched, hundreds are released, and just as many... simply vanish. In most cases, we never even hear about them. Sometimes, the code can be on the verge of hitting the shelves, only for the company to fold or the publisher decide to cut their losses. We've been on a nostalgic trip through our back issues to remind ourselves of the ones we were most disappointed not to get the chance to play, both because we thought they were going to be great, and because we just really, really wanted to see what the hell some of our favourite developers were working on. Here's our list. Share your biggest non-release regrets in the Comments...
