What is DX12 doing to cards? Even the NVidia 1070 had minimum 14FPS at 1440p - this is a brand high-end card. That's mental.

And any explanation as to why the NVidia card failed the Hitman benchmark at 1440p and 1080p? Quite worrying if you own that card and wanted to use DX12?!Reply

The GTX 1070 failed the 1440p and 1080p tests for Warhammer at DX12, but it's a standalone beta benchmark test for the upcoming DirectX 12 version of the game.


I wouldn't worry overmuch right now about that as it's more a software instability than hardware. We included the beta benchmark to add a little more to the DX12 testing.


The car-crash minimum FPS in Hitman though I think is also down to an issue in the benchmark's reporting of the numbers. As it's super low across the board I think it's reporting on some transition in the testing which is dropping frame rates so low.

This isn't good. They will push it as an opportunity to make PC Games locked to one store and run at quality equal to Xbox one, not fit for PC. Repeat, this will have anegative impact on the quality of future Windows based PC gamesReply

I don't see how this will affect non-Microsoft games. They'll just show up on Steam, Origin, etc. and it'll be business as usual. The Windows store isn't going to make a dent in Steam's share of the PC gaming market, and even if Microsoft's games on the Windows store run like crap, it'll be like the games never came from the xbone at all.

The payload mode in TF2 is inspired/stolen from Enemy Territory. I think that deserves a place on this list.

Wow, so this is a game actually worth playing. Shame I'm behind the Great Firewall. I'm going to miss out on all the excitement...

Also, I came here because PC Gamer went really really shit and well, this site is owned by an ex PC Gamer chief, so what could go wrong?


My favourite games are Grim Fandango, Beyond Good & Evil and Psychonauts, CS: Source, TF2 and I yearn for the uni years where I can play WoW and nerd it up with my guild without fear of reprisals on my time or money as I did when I was young and naive. Good times.

Hi I'm Gregory,


I'm an English Language Content Developer based in Shanghai, China. Nominally a Brit in origin, I've been in China for the last half of my twenties.


About to turn 30, I'm married to a lovely Chinese lady and I'm a serial non-completionist, slave to Steam sales and generally having between 20-30 games installed on my laptop at any one time, but never having completed any of them.

Interesting. I hope they survive and make money. Rift wasn't a bad game and it would be nice to see the pay-to-win model have an alternative. God I hate freemium games
