The new PC Gamer magazine is out now and this month the Steam Deck takes centre stage. We've had world-exclusive access and inside this issue you'll find absolutely everything you need to know about Valve's new handheld. There's our full hands-on preview, expert analysis on the Deck's potential, an in-depth interview with developers, and Valve's plans for the future of handheld gaming.

Elsewhere in the magazine, we dive into how iconic games like Doom, Quake, and Deus Ex were inspired by Dungeons & Dragons and chat with the game's developers to find out more.

For previews this month, we've got early impressions of Far Cry 6, Guardians of the Galaxy, Saints Row, Jurassic World Evolution 2, Call of Duty: Vanguard, Martha is Dead, and Ixion.

If you're after in-depth reviews, we've got you covered. This issue has our verdicts for Humankind, 12 Minutes, Axiom Verge 2, The Forgotten City, Hell Let Loose, King's Bounty 2, Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector, and more. 

Over in hardware, the team have tried and tested a bunch of high-end and budget webcams across the market and has created a list of the very best ones. 

The free gift this month is a digital download of the complete Windows 10 manual. Get the most out of your PC with this handy guide and find features that you never knew Windows 10 had.

Print Editor

As editor of the PC Gamer magazine, Robin combines years of experience in print (including stints on Official Xbox, the GAME magazine, and the dearly departed GamesMaster) with a lifelong love of PC gaming. First hypnotised by the light of the monitor as he muddled through Simon the Sorcerer on his uncle’s machine, he’s been a devotee ever since, devouring any RPG or strategy game to stumble into his path. He believes firmly that the best way to express that devotion is through the printed page—games journalism only truly exists if you can hold it in your hands.
