PC Gamer UK August issue

Stop tapping out those emails, lay down that furiously scribbling pen and set free your carrier pigeons. The new issue of PC Gamer UK is here. In addition to its rigorous reviews, a bumper-load of percipient E3 previews and in-depth features covering The Sims 4, Battlefield Hardline and Transformers Universe, this issue also contains a free and exclusive Killing Floor 2 in-game jacket . The sustained hordes of blood-gushing zombies will marvel at your style. And then try to eat you.

That's not all! We're also giving readers a free copy of Tidalis , the block-based puzzler from Arcen Games. The issue, which is in shops now, can be ordered through My Favourite Magazines . Digitally, you'll find it on the App Store , Google Play , and Zinio , and you can subscribe to get issues delivered directly to your door. Read on for a look at the subs cover, and a round-up of the features to be found in issue 268.
