Release the Kraken! Hunt the Kraken! Stop the Kraken! Panic at the Kraken! These and other Kraken-based activities are at the centre of Evolve, Turtle Rock's 4-vs-1 multiplayer shooter. We sent the monstrous Ben Griffin to take a look at the game, and he came back, not only with a hands-on report on the Left 4 Dead successor, but also bathed in the blood of multiple games journalists. We didn't ask questions.
Also, this issue, exclusive gifts. We're giving away a free starter kit for Might & Magic: Duel of Champions, and a Crimson Portal effect for Path of Exile. 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 , and you can subscribe (opens in new tab) 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 270.
