PC Gamer UK April issue: The Witcher 3

Audio player loading…

Look out monsters, Geralt's on the way! He might be a little later than originally planned, but, when he does arrive, he'll be carrying dual-swords, decisive decision making, and the massive, sprawling open world of CD Projekt's most ambitious RPG. To celebrate his eventual appearance, we tasked Sam with bringing us the heads of the game's development team. Instead, he came back with an exhaustive series of interviews. If you think about it, that's even better.

That's not all. Alongside the many features, reviews and previews sandwiched inside, we're also giving away a bundle of exclusive items for Planetside 2 . Not only will you get the fearsome NS-44 Commissioner pistol and a 1-day experience booster, but also our personal PC Gamer decal. The issue, which is in shops now, can be ordered through My Favourite Magazines (opens in new tab) . Digitally, you'll find it on the App Store (opens in new tab) , Google Play , and Zinio , and you can subscribe (opens in new tab) to get issues delivered directly to your door. Read on for a look at the subs cover, and a round-up of the features in issue 264.
