Open worlds wherever you look! Okay, maybe not exactly when it's a window outside. But with video games it is still the case that extensive areas invite players to let off steam – it's not for nothing that we are looking forward to Spider-Man on the PS5: Miles Morales and Horizon 2. Until then, wait in autumn three particularly interesting worlds for explorers: Medieval England in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, the somewhat dystopian London in Watch Dogs: Legion and the far more dystopian Night City from Cyberpunk 2077. We were now able to allude to all three titles and tell you a total of 14 Pages what awaits you.
Ghost of Tsushima is also open and even commercially available. The samurai adventure from Sucker Punch was not only eagerly awaited by us and, as our test shows, this patience is rewarded: Tsushima is a real highlight at the end of the Sony internal PS4 gaming era. On top of that we give you a few handy starter tips.
Otherwise, we have new impressions for you in the preview section of Marvel's Avengers, Star Wars: Squadrons and Far Cry 6, in the test section our judgments on F1 2020, Iron Man: VR and disintegration. As always, the whole thing is rounded off by a few specials and standards, such as the first attempts of our free author Benedikt in the very first Diablo. Yes, he is a little late for the party as usual for "My first time".
- Cover story: In autumn, three extensive open-world adventures will be released within just three weeks: Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dogs: Legion. We'll clarify who should play all of this when the time comes. Until then, we have brand new intro impressions for all three titles.

All readers receive news, articles, guides, videos and podcasts about their favorite games from us free of charge. So far we have financed this page through advertising and kept it as free as possible from clickbaits or paid items, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies will cut or cut their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets, which we unfortunately rely on if we want to continue offering PC games in the usual way free of charge in the future.
For this reason, we are now turning to you. You can support us as a PC games supporter so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual way free of charge without introducing a paywall or clickbait news á la "And you will not believe what happened then …" . Every contribution, large or small, is valuable.
