Travel with us to the future to see what PC gaming has become: Are we living in Oculus Rift-powered virtual reality? Surrounded by 4K monitors?

And speaking of the future, we also talk to Dean Hall about what's next for DayZ—arrows, knives, spears, dogs, and a lot more—and deliver our preliminary alpha review of the standalone game.
