This month we’ve been behind the scenes at the always mysterious Valve, to check out its ambitious plans for Dota Underlords - and uncover the secrets of the unique way it makes games. Whether you’re puzzled by auto-battlers, or an AutoChess veteran, this is the feature for you, diving into the genre’s recent explosion of popularity and where Underlords fits into the bigger picture.
We’ve also pulled together the ultimate guide to the must-see games upcoming in 2020, running down 41 titles you need to have on your radar – from Cyberpunk 2077 to Crusader Kings III to Kerbal Space Program 2. And we’ve gone all the way to China to investigate the country’s growing indie scene, as developers fight a daily battle against oppressive government regulation. We reckon you’ll be blown away by their persistence, creativity, and true passion for the art of making games.
Over in previews, we’ve had a bone-rattling hands-on with Doom Eternal and barely survived to tell the tale, checked out ambitious RPG sequel Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, grilled Amazon about its unusual new MMO, and more.
All that, plus all the regular features, news, reviews, and more that you’d expect from the world’s best PC gaming magazine.
