Skyrim: Dragonborn

PC Gamer UK April issue: The Witcher 3

Marsh Davies at

Spring seems reluctant to arrive this year. Is it because of the increasingly erratic meteorological conditions resulting from climate change? Or is it because of FROST GIANTS?!?! We know what we think, and no vast body of evidence and scientific consensus is going to convince us otherwise - particularly not now that we've gone and featured such a mythic beast as the cover star of issue 251 of PC Gamer UK. He's one of the many gruesome gribblies you might encounter in The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, to which we've dedicated a massive preview. There's lots more besides: we get on board with Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, voyage to the edge of known space in Wildstar and screech through the skies in Divinity: Dragon Commander.

All that AND the mag comes with £8 worth of PlanetSide 2 items!

Issue 251 should be on shelves today, but you can nab it from the App Store, Google Play and Zinio too. Of course, you could always subscribe and get each issue delivered to your door! Hit the jump to see the exclusive subs cover to fully appreciate the majesty of our new ice-dwelling overlord. Then discover what other treats await: news, previews, reviews, retrospectives, tech tests and much more!

Using our Skyrim modding guide, you can get the home of the Nords looking pretty stunning. This video from SkyrimTuner, however, pushes the envelope just about to the limit. Using the RealVision ENB V1.3 Climates of Tamriel mod, paired with Ultra settings and some .ini tweaks, you can see the sweeping forests and soaring peaks as they should be truly appreciated—and only really can be on the PC.

Skyrim: Dragonborn DLC releases on 360 tomorrow, we'll get it on PC "early next year"

I don't think anyone is surprised that Skyrim's next DLC, Dragonborn, will be releasing on 360 considerably ahead of PC. Which is to say, tomorrow. At least we've been given a general ballpark this time: the quote is "early next year" for the PC release, which could mean as soon as January or as late as maybe March. Assuming a 30-day exclusivity contract with Xbox and a similar delay to what we saw with previous DLC, we're probably looking at the first or second week of January.
