SimCity is back! Well, if you're excited now, just wait until you get the whole story. We spent a day at Maxis to talk with the developers about SimCity's groundbreaking new engine, design philosophy, and new features (multiplayer! curvy roads!), and you'll find eight pages of concentrated details at the center of PC Gamer US issue #226.
Also in this issue: a huge guide featuring practical tips that'll give you the edge in League of Legends, Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Minecraft, Team Fortress 2, and more; our impressions of Tactical Intervention, the next game from the creator of Counter-Strike; a guide to permanently maxing your stats with The Old Republic's Datacrons; and 14 reviews, including Mass Effect 3, Alan Wake, and Kingdoms of Amalur.
