In addition to our lead cover feature, we've also got two more great features in this issue, including the ultimate history of Star Wars PC games and a look back at the most controversial PC games ever to be released. From Doom to Cyberpunk 2077, there's been plenty of games that have generated serious controversy and scandal, and this feature reveals a selection of the worst offenders.

We look forward to plenty of other games on top of Realms of Ruin this issue, too. Foremost among these previews is the cult-classic-in-the-making, procedurally generated detect-'em-up Shadows of Doubt. Imagine an endless Deus Ex-like detective experience with a sci-fi noir aesthetic where you discover and solve crimes in a city sandbox – yes, Shadows of Doubt really looks like it is going to be something special. In addition, we also preview new boomer shooter Hyperviolent, the '80s squad-based tactical combat simulator Jagged Alliance 3, art house puzzler Humanity, and a slew of exciting new titles such as WrestleQuest, Slay the Princess and Kriegsfront Tactics. It's a stacked issue!

Further, we give official PC Gamer verdicts on Terra Nil, The Last of Us: Part 1, Ravenbound, Minecraft Legends, Dead Island 2, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened and Age of Wonders 4.
