Well, this is one way to score yourself an RTX 3080. Games Workshop is giving anyone subscribed to Warhammer+ (which costs £5/$US6/$AU10 per month and gives you access to Warhammer animations and hobby shows, a vault of old publications, free miniatures, and so on), whether new or existing subscribers, a chance to win one of two gaming PCs. One of them's in a case decorated with Total War: Warhammer 3 art to celebrate the open beta of Immortal Empires, while the other features the Grey Knights from Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters.
As well as a chance to win one of those, everyone subscribed by the end of the month will score the Ogre Kingdoms DLC for Total War: Warhammer 3 and a copy of hex-grid strategy game Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War. Those are being handed out as Steam keys on November 1.
While they may not have the RGB plasma cannon of that one PC case built to look like an Arkurian-pattern Stormblade tank, the two gaming PCs are decent under the hood, with RTX 3080 cards and 32GB of RAM. Here are the specs for both.
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters custom PC
- MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ventus 3X graphics card
- Intel Core i7 12700KF CPU
- 500GB SSD
- 1TB memory
- 32GB of RAM
Total War: Warhammer 3 custom PC
- NZXT H510 Tempered Glass Case
- Intel Core i9-12900K CPU
- Gigabyte Z690 AORUS ELITE AX D5 Motherboard
- 32GB DDR5 RAM
- Corsair Hydro H100x CPU Cooler
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 10GB Graphics Card
- 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD
- 750 watt power supply
As well as subscribing by the end of October, to be eligible to win the Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters rig you also need to follow @ChaosGate on Twitter, and for a chance to win the Total War: Warhammer 3 PC, follow @TotalWar on Twitter. (You don't need to link your Warhammer+ account, they'll apparently check at a later date.) The winners will be drawn on November 2. More details are available at the Warhammer Community site.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and Playboy.com, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
