Dungeons & Dragons returns to PC with an incredible new sequel to the classic Baldur’s Gate series – and, even better, it’s coming from the developer that brought you the sublime Divinity: Original Sin 2. We’ve been behind the scenes to find out everything we can, grilling the team and being taken through a huge demo of its opening hours. You’ll find our definitive feature inside.
And that’s far from the only big feature we’ve got for you this month. We’ve also squeezed in: an extensive look at Riot’s new shooter Valorant – a tech powerhouse that takes a swing at Counter-Strike: GO’s lofty crown; a visit to the studio bringing Halo: The Master Chief Collection to PC, and what you can expect from its upcoming releases; and a profile of Sokpop Collective, the most prolific indie studio in the business. How do you put out two new videogames a month, every month? The team’s four passionate members explain.
Over in previews we’ve got a huge look at the changes and features coming to World of Warcraft with the Shadowlands expansion, gone hands-on with Resident Evil 3, clashed blades in Chivalry 2, and played as an actual shark in Maneater. In the hardware section, we explain why you need to switch to a mechanical keyboard today, and rated the six best ones to grab, as well as taking a closer look at incredible new advances in microchip technology. And in reviews, we tackle the controversial launch of Warcraft III: Reforged, take a look back on Kentucky Route Zero’s seven year journey to its final episode, and slap a score on a game that’s just beloved English character actor Eddie Marsan talking to you for four hours.
All that, plus we try to play Total War as a devout pacifist, offer tips on getting into Legends of Runeterra, check out an incredible new Stardew Valley mod, and much, much more.
