With so many features packed into the latest issue of PC Gamer UK, something was bound to burst out. And wouldn't you know it, it's Rico Rodriguez. The protagonist of that most video games of video games, Just Cause 3, is also the cover star of our March issue. Andy grappled into Avalanche HQ and nabbed all the info he could find about the absurd action sequel, turning that intel into our 8-page lead feature.
We didn't stop there. Also in this issue: Joe Donnelly talks to the makers of Enderal, the most ambitious Skyrim mod to-date; Chris delves into the world of competitive Smite; Andy experiences the Dark-Souls-meets-Shadow-of-Colossus world of Titan Souls; Joe Skrebels takes a fresh look at Battlefield: Hardline; and Tim Stone runs through the 20 best wargames. Video Games!
And what is video games if not wizards? That's why we're also giving away a free Steam key for Avencast: Rise of the Mage. 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 (opens in new tab), and you can subscribe (opens in new tab) to get issues delivered directly to your door.
