Discovery… Hope… The future . That\’s what you\’ll find in the new issue of PC Gamer UK. Admittedly nothing quite as grandiose as the future of humanity. Instead, we\’re taking a look at the future of Firaxis, and their recently announced Alpha Centauri successor Civilization: Beyond Earth . Tom Senior journeyed into the unknown, becoming the first person outside the studio to try the sci-fi 4X strategy. You can read his hands-on report exclusively in this issue .

Also in this issue, Andy talks to David Braben about Elite: Dangerous and the return of the space sim, and Chris Schilling takes a look at the new kings of comedy gaming. That\’s not all. This month, we\’re giving away two free gifts: a New Player Pack for Warframe, and a light recon tank for War Thunder . The issue, which is in shops now, can be ordered through My Favourite Magazines . Digitally, you\’ll find it on the App Store , Google Play , and Zinio , and you can subscribe to get issues delivered directly to your door. Read on for a look at the subs cover, and a round-up of the features in issue 266.
