Af­ter meet­ing with Sledge­ham­mer’s Michael Con­drey at this year’s Gamescom to chat about Call Of Duty: WWII, I was left with a clear im­pres­sion that this year’s COD is a work of pas­sion. On page 48 we’ve gath­ered all the facts to date, plus Con­drey’s in­sights and our hand­son im­pres­sions to of­fer a one-shot overview of just why 2017 is the year to re-em­brace the clas­sic shooter fran­chise.

There was more from Gamescom than COD: WWII too, as I got to spend some time with Mon­ster Hunter: World (p6), As­sas­sin’s Creed Ori­gins (p40), and Star Wars Bat­tle­front II (p32). Plus, gam­ing leg­end Yu Suzuki re­vealed a lit­tle more about Shen­mue III (p16) in our one-to-one in­ter­view.

We’re also in cel­e­bra­tion mood this is­sue as PlaySta­tion VR hits its first birth­day. Start­ing on page 60 we take a look at the year that was, and look for­ward to the big re­leases com­ing to PS VR in the next six months. Vir­tual suc­cess? No, PS VR is now an es­tab­lished re­al­ity.

“2017 IS THE YEAR TO RE-EM­BRACE THE CLAS­SIC SHOOTER FRAN­CHISE.”
