PCPP#216 On Sale NOW!

Posted: May 9, 2013 by: Daniel Hindes

We’re proud to be featuring a world exclusive look at the spiritual successor to the greatest RPG ever madeTorment: Tides of Numenera may feature a completely different setting and cast to Planescape: Torment, but its DNA remains strong. Welcome to a new kind of dark and mature fantasy RPG, funded by PC gamers and created for PC gamers.

We also steal a first glimpse of Eidos Montreal’s Thief reboot. Can the studio (but not the team) behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution live up to the legacy of what is stealth gaming’s masterpiece?

PCPP#216 debuts our brand new Beta Watch section. We’ve spent extensive hands-on time with the Diablo III-killer Path of Exile, gone head to head in Company of Heroes 2‘s chilly multiplayer, and seen strategy and shooting collide in FPS/RTS Heroes & Generals.

This issue also features an extensive hands-on with the first developer version of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. We’ve caught a glimpse of the future of PC gaming, and it’s left us giddy – in more ways than one. Tech also puts AMD’s $1,200 Radeon 7990 through rigorous benchmarking, checks out the next generation of ASUS motherboards, whilst The Bunker fires up the soldering iron for a PCB modification tutorial.
