PC Gamer Digital Episode 5 is now available for download on Steam, and it's all about some of the most beloved PC classics ever made: Diablo, Tribes, and Counter-Strike. But we're not just slurping up a big bowl of nostalgia soup - all of these landmark PC series are charging back to the front lines of gaming, and Episode 5 is full of exclusive interactive content (and a bit of nostalgia soup) on each, including a tour of every character class in the Diablo III beta, an exclusive 360-degree tour of one of Tribes: Ascend's expansive landscapes, and an interactive comparison of the famous de_dust in Counter-Strike: Source and the upcoming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

And Episode 5 doesn't end there - it may be our biggest yet, so now is an especially superb time to find out how PC Gamer itself has built on its classic roots by downloading the free PC Gamer Digital base application and checking it out. We'll see you there!
