What's Inside?

This single issue bundle contains 6 issues of PC Gamer US:


352 - January

This month we’ve delved into the world of Riot Games - whether you’re into League of Legends, Valorant, Teamfight Tactics, or the studio’s revolutionary new TV show Arcane, we’ve got juicy interviews for you. In fact, we’ve talked to developers across every Riot game, and even the people that brought you K/DA, to explore the future of perhaps the most wildly ambitious studio in PC gaming. 


Over in previews, we’ve enjoyed a behind-closed-doors demo of two of Total War: Warhammer III’s new factions: the harmonious army of Cathay, and the betentacled horde of Tzeentch. As celestial dragons and gigantic terracotta warriors clash with magic-slinging daemons and mutated monstrosities, we can’t help but be wowed by the spectacle this new sequel has to offer – and we’ve got all the details in our in-depth four-page preview.


Windows 11 - should you install it? Or are you better off waiting? We’ve done the research and run the benchmarks so you don’t have to, exploring every new feature and its possible effects on your PC gaming. Our definitive verdict contains everything you need to know, with the hard data to back it up!


All that, plus we’ve played an absolutely absurd amount of New World for our final review; explored all the new content in Baldur’s Gate III; tested and ranked the six best gaming headsets you can buy; and loads more.



353 - February

This month, we’ve braved the dangers of the irradiated wilderness to bring you an in-depth look at STALKER 2. The beloved series is finally returning, and this long-awaited sequel hopes to reinvent it, with a full open world and a sprawling, non-linear story. The Zone is bigger and bolder than ever before – and more dangerous, too, with new anomalies, mutants, and factions to discover. You’ll find everything you need to know in our killer cover feature, including new insights direct from the developer. Oh, and you’ll find out why deer aren’t as harmless as they seem… 


It’s also time for our annual Game of the Year awards. After much debate and deliberation, we’ve determined the best releases of 2021 – from our favourite RPG, to the year’s most fun co-op game, to, of course, the ultimate best game of the year. The results just might surprise you…


All that, plus we’ve gone behind-the-scenes of the huge new Warframe update; reviewed Call of Duty Vanguard and Battlefield 2042 to see which shooter rules the roost this year; discovered a whole new Half-Life story with the Delta full-conversion mod; gone hands-on with cowboy immersive sim Weird West; and much more.



354 - March

Elden Ring, the grand, open world follow-up to Dark Souls, is almost upon us. If, like us, you just can’t wait, then pick up this month’s issue for an in-depth cover feature delving into absolutely everything you need to know. Drawing on our latest hands-on impressions, and hard-won knowledge of the sprawling new lore, it’s the ultimate tome to study during the long wait for February. 


And Elden Ring is far from the only massive game in this issue. Our 2022 preview feature is packed with over 60 must-see upcoming titles, running down the latest details on everything from Starfield, to Company of Heroes 3, to Total War: Warhammer 3, to Midnight Suns. Find out what games need to be on your radar as we head into 12 months of greatness.


Plus: our definitive reviews of Halo Infinite, Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, Farming Simulator 22, and plenty more hot releases; we put gaming’s best new CPU through its paces; veteran developers let us in on the secrets of invisibility in games; we chart the incredible rise and recent stumbles of CD Projekt Red; and loads more features, regulars, guides, and news besides.



355 - April

This month we’re celebrating an incredible year ahead for PC gaming. We firmly believe there’s never been a better time to be a part of this community, and across our massive cover feature you’ll discover why - and what you’ve got to look forward to. From huge upcoming games, to the defining trends of 2022, to the biggest hardware releases on the horizon, we’ve got the expert perspective on all of it. Plus a few of our bolder predictions…


Over in previews, we’ve got two big hitters of the strategy genre. We’ve been hands-on with Total War Warhammer 3’s surprise new faction for our final huge look at the game, and we’ve also taken a dive into Ubisoft’s rebooted take on The Settlers, a game of hotly contested resources and, in our experience, your city getting burned down a lot. 


In the wake of the controversial new Matrix movie, we’ve investigated the players keeping The Matrix Online alive far past its official death. This ambitious MMO remains a fascinating relic of the franchise - and its bizarre storyline still seems to be canon. But how on earth are people still exploring its digital streets after the complete server shutdown?


All that, plus the month’s biggest reviews, from Monster Hunter Rise to God of War; expert hardware guides and tech news; the turbulent history of EA DICE, creators of Battlefield; our new favourite Skyrim mod; and much more.



356 - May

The Steam Deck has arrived, and we’ve already put it through its paces. Our expert review delves into the power of the hardware, how the biggest games perform on the go, and how it could even replace your gaming PC altogether. Across our in-depth feature, we’ll fill you in on everything you need to know – and help you decide if it’s worth your cash. 


Warhammer meets XCOM – that’s one appetising pitch. WH40K: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters may have a wordy title, but it’s also got some seriously slick turn-based strategy. As the towering Grey Knights go head-to-head with the diseased forces of Nurgle, it’s up to you to safeguard planets, develop powerful weaponry, and shoulder charge stone pillars onto daemons’ heads. Our huge preview has all the details – and this issue we’ve also checked out Dune: Spice Wars, Ghostwire: Tokyo, and a stone age alternative to Stardew Valley.


It’s a huge issue for reviews too – we’ve got verdicts on all the biggest releases, and that includes everything from Dying Light 2, to Total War: Warhammer III, to Sifu. In hardware, we’ve taken an exhaustive look at the gaming power of 12th gen motherboards. And that’s not even mentioning all the features, news, regulars, and more you’ve come to expect from the best games magazine around. We’ve even had a go at working a regular 9-to-5 in Red Dead Redemption 2.



357 - June

We're enjoying a bit of nostalgia this month as we check out Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge, a loving tribute to arcade classics – as well as a slick and lushly animated brawler in its own right. The minds behind it are masters of retro reinvention, combining the best of old and new across all their projects, and they've told us all about the tricks of their trade.


Also spilling the beans this issue is Valve's head honcho, the indomitable Gabe Newell. We've grilled him on everything from the future of PC, to NFTs, to his ambitions for Steam. Oh, and of course the Steam Deck, which we've also rigorously put through its paces for our final scored review - the definitive verdict on whether Valve's device truly is the future of handheld gaming.


Taking us back to the past is a deep dive into the making of a stealth classic - Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. We find out how the ground-breaking game came together against the odds, and the legacy it left for soon to be revived series. 


Over in reviews, we've got our verdict on the ground-breaking Elden Ring, disastrous Babylon's Fall, Destiny 2's big new expansion, and more. In hardware, we've broken down the best flightsticks on the market, and investigated Windows 11's gaming potential. And in our Extra Life section, we've got everything from a mod that turns Half-Life 2's Gordon Freeman into a super-powered action hero, to our guide to keeping the forces of Chaos at bay in Total War: Warhammer III, to the ups and downs of Star Wars: The Old Republic's questionable new update.
