“frontier is a master of crafting intricate, believable detail”

One of the best things about working at PC Gamer is that, when a studio tells you that they’re working on a hyperdetailed management simulation featuring some of the most advanced animal animation and AI around, I get to put it on our cover. Frontier is a master of crafting intricate, believable detail that adds rich depth to their simulations. As revealed in Andy’s cover feature, the studio is going all out with Planet Zoo to create some of the most realistic animals around. This issue we also celebrate another master of craft. Turn to page 48 to read our massive celebration of FromSoftware’s Dark Souls. phil.savage@futurenet.com PHIL SAVAGE Specialist in Giraffes Twitter @Octaeder This month Put a giant lion face on the cover, like we’re the National Geographic of PC gaming.

borderlands revealed 3

For years, every tweet by Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has had variations of the same reply under it, “What about Borderlands 3?” And at this year’s PAX East, those fans’ prayers were answered. Borderlands 3 is due for release on September 13, 2019 and will feature a loot system that will, if Gearbox is to be believed, generate a billion guns. A suitably chaotic trailer, opening with the words “MAYHEM IS COMING”, shows a refinement of the series’ trademark comic book art style. It’s mostly business as usual: Mad Max-style car chases in the desert, masked bandits, shanty towns, and big, silly guns. But there are a few enticing glimpses of new environments, including a neon-lit futuristic city and a green, swampy biome. Oh, and Claptrap is back, because of course…

The Spy has just returned from a relaxing holiday, touring the various museums of the United Kingdom. You’re probably thinking this is part of some escapade or caper, maybe even the precursor to whirlwind string of heists. You’d be wrong. You see, The Spy can’t guarantee that the police will never read this page. The Spy can’t even be sure that printed word can’t be used in a court of law. And so, for all intents and purposes, this was a ‘vacation’. OK? Are we all on the same page? Good. Having been thoroughly convinced by the security of The British Museum, The Spy decided to visit some of the lesser known sites of historical note. Did you know there was a Dog Collar Museum in Maidstone? A Lawnmower Museum in…

this month in… 2009

1 In his cover feature, Tim Edwards’ suggestion that the StarCraft II trilogy might not be finished until after 2012 prompts a panicked “Oh God, I hope not” from then senior designer Dustin Browder. In the end, Legacy of the Void wouldn’t arrive until 2015 – long after Blizzard’s RTS sequel had transformed esports forever. “The saviour of PC gaming” indeed. ISSUE 201, June 2009 ON THE COVER Starcraft 2 IN THE CHARTS Boom Boom Pow – Black Eyed Peas 2 PC Gamer gets a new-look Extra Life containing brand new features like Now Playing and Reinstall.
