PC Gamer UK October issue – DOOM

Magpost Uk 283banner

This month on the front cover of our magazine: a skeleton and the word DOOM. Have the '90s returned? I hope not; I don't think I could afford all the denim.

Wait, no—false alarm. Joining our six-page cover feature on the rebooted DOOM, we look at some of this decade's finest sequels. Eight pages containing everything you need to know about Fallout 4; a first look at the murky world of Mafia 3; an in-depth exploration of The Witcher 3's best quest.

Also, there's no cover disc. The '90s definitely had cover discs. Instead, we're giving away free stuff. This month, it's a free Steam key for Grimoire: Manastorm and a free unlock for Dirty Bomb's Fragger. 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. Below you can the special blurb-free subscriber cover, and a round-up of the contents of this issue's perspicacious pages.
