“a wildly ambitious historical strategy game”

Amplitude’s previous forays into the 4X genre have been beautiful, intricate games full of weird and interesting factions. The experience gained making Endless Space and Endless Legend has led Amplitude directly to Humankind – a wildly ambitious historical strategy game that hopes to steal Civilization’s thunder. On a personal note, this is my last issue as editor of the magazine. I’ll still be around – overseeing the UK PCG team across both mag and website – but as of next month there’ll be a new face getting photoshopped onto our cover. I’m excited to see what’s next for the mag. Thanks for reading! PHIL SAVAGE Specialist in Promotions Twitter @Octaeder This month Is leaving you all in good hands. (But also not actually leaving.)

fortnite world cup

While Fortnite, Epic’s world-conquering battle royale game, has yet to establish itself as a top-tier esport, that didn’t stop 2.3 million people tuning into the recent Fortnite World Cup across YouTube and Twitch. A whopping $30 million in prize money was up for grabs at the lavish tournament, which was held in New York City’s Arthur Ashe Stadium on July 26-28. The biggest winner of the tournament was 16-year-old Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, who won the solo tournament on the final day and pocketed $3 million. That’s a lot of cheese for being good at a computer game, but indicative of how popular Epic’s brightly coloured shooter has become. Bugha’s victory made headlines around the world, and not just in the gaming press. THE BIGGEST WINNER OF THE TOURNAMENT WAS KYLE ‘BUGHA’ GIERSDORF Other…

First step: being able to sort your games. GTA Online With games under scrutiny over gambling mechanics, putting a casino in Los Santos is tone deaf. Call of Duty Modern Warfare can’t decide if war is Hell or just cool as Hell. You’d think they’d have figured it out by now.…

the spy

The Spy doesn’t fear change, because The Spy doesn’t exist in a linear narrative governed by the relationship between cause and effect. This is a perk of the job. It is useful for The Spy to be metaphysically malleable, at least when The Spy is being a spy – which isn’t always the case, for the reasons explained above. To wallow in nostalgia, go to A. To read a debunked videogame rumour, go to B. A. The Spy arrived in the industry when information moved slowly. Games had to be printed, packaged and posted. They would “go gold”, a now meaningless term you will only ever see when a weary newshound has run out of interesting things to write about and reaches for a desperation press release. Because everything took months…
