Spring is getting hot. At least in hell, because that's where we end up in Doom Eternal, the second part of the series since the reboot in 2016. We visited Bethesda and spent several hours shooting, sawing and glazing through demon and monster hordes, even taking our own screenshots , You can read everything you need to know in our cover story this month.
The 2020s have begun, the 2010 decade is behind us. Reason enough to take a look back and see how the face of gaming has changed during this time. That's why we picked ten titles for our big special that we think had the greatest impact on our favorite hobby during this time – be it because they invented genres, set standards or have become cultural phenomena.
Aside from individual preview events and releases, things are a little quieter at the beginning of the year as usual. Nevertheless, we have a few exciting topics ready for you in this issue, such as a preview of the Shark GTA Maneater, Media Molecules kit Dreams or Path of Exile 2. Or tests on Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Pillars of Eternity 2 and AO Tennis 2. And a few exciting specials also made it into the magazine.
