PCPP#197 On Sale NOW!

Posted: October 10, 2011 by: admin

That’s right - Mass Effect 3 is getting multiplayer! We travel to BioWare’s office in Edmonton for hands-on time with the series’ first foray into online gameplay, and chat with Mass Effect Series Producer and Mass Effect 3 Project Director Casey Hudson about the decision to go multiplayer in the epic battle for the galaxy.

Continuing the multiplayer theme, this is also PCPP’s first ever MMO Special! We go behind the scenes with Guild Wars 2, investigate the anarchy in EVE Online, explore the rise of free-to-play MMOs, and chat with the minds behind The Secret WorldWildStarEnd of Nations and more!

Reviews kick off with Rage - the first id Software title since Doom 3. It’s been a while, so how has id fared in its time off? The full review, only in the mag! We also get a double-shot of racing with F1 2011 and TrackMania 2, die a lot in cyberpunk FPS Hard Reset, scheme with political machinations in Sengoku‘s feudal Japan and crush countless Orks in Space Marine.

Tech brings you the ultimate case roundup, with six sexy chassis just begging to be filled with the Asus Mars II – the most expensive card ever made, coincidentally also reviewed this issue! Fortunately, we didn’t melt this one!

We also visit Ubisoft in Montreal for an in-depth look at Ezio’s final chapter, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations; take a look at the mod that has revitalised Civilization V; tell you the best places you should be buying your indie games from; and click our way through the Diablo III beta!

On the disc this month is another double-shot – but this time, it’s two massive MMOs! World of Tanks is the completely free, action-packed World War II MMO with no humans in sight, while the full EVE Online client comes with a 14-day trial – enough to get hooked on its incredible player-controlled sandbox world.
