What’s in the box?
New consoles don’t come along very often, so when one as powerful as the Xbox One X is about to launch it’s fair to say we get a bit excited. This month that meant going a bit overboard and putting together an issue so packed with cool content and free stuff that we almost didn’t get it all into the bag you’ve just ripped open. If your Xbox One X launch guide – packed with tips, tricks, hardware suggestions and 4K games – wasn’t enough, we’ve also been talking to Microsoft about the games you already own that will look better on the new console (p56), gone hands-on with Far Cry 5 (p48) and packed so many huge game reviews in that the rest of the mag started getting jealous. Read our verdicts on Forza Motorsport 7, FIFA 18 and more starting on p70. Oh, and enjoy your free download of our Halo eBook, too (see below)!
Stephen Ashby Editor It was Steve’s birthday this month! He turned down the kind offer of birthday bumps from the team, but did accept the delicious chocolate cake they kindly bought him. What a lovely bunch.
