PC Gamer UK April issue: The Witcher 3

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!
