The truth is out there, or rather, in here: the April issue of PC Gamer UK in which we boldly go to Hello Games for a first encounter with No Man's Sky: the space game you can play forever. We want to believe.
Keeping things space-age, we have a look at the PC's newest Xbox exclusive, Quantum Break, take to the battlefield in Paragon, investigate a betrayal of galactic scale in Eve Online, and stick David Braben in the brig to be interviewed on the future of Elite: Dangerous.
Back on terra firma, you can swot up on the surprising origins of Gwent—the Witcher 3's hit card game—and, for print buyers, pimp your big rig in Euro Truck Simulator 2 with free PC Gamer cabin accessories.
But the pièce de résistance—art editor John Strike's crowning glory (we didn't let him go home for five days)—is surely our exclusive subscriber cover, below. "How can we own a thing of such beauty?" you cry. And I answer: by following this link and subscribing to save 24% off the shelf price. We'll even deliver it for you.
