Hello everyone and welcome to the launch of the PC Gamer Community!
We've got some amazing things planned this week, here's 6 things to get involved with:
1. PC Gamer Community Launch Giveaway: For our Launch Event we have partnered with noblechairs to give away an EPIC Black Edition. To enter, you'll need to register, post your favourite game as a reply in our competition thread and sign our gleam app with your forum name for a chance to win (entries are sweepstake only, no purchase or talent necessary). Good luck!
2. STUDIO SPOTLIGHT: On Tuesday the 14th, we are launching our Studio Spotlight Initiative which will highlight various developers and invite them to chat and have fun with our community. The PC Gamer Community Team wants to champion Indie studios with these new forums and give them a place to talk about their games. For launch month we have Failbetter Games guesting, who will arrive in the Studio Spotlight Subforum with a lot of awesome features and things to get stuck into. Be nice to the devs!
3. 🦸♀️ Hero Adventure Simulator: As a blast from the past, we’re running an old school Adventure Simulator in the Classic & 2D Games subforum. Community members will be able to play along with our Games Master and possibly save the world! Superheroes are in the making.
4. We also hope to bring the best material from the forums onto the main website, and will be inviting answers to our weekly questions in the General Gaming section. This week's question: What game would make a great Netflix series?
5. Introduce yourself: We'd love to hear a bit about you below. Thanks so much for joining our community and helping it to grow into something truly incredible! If you have thoughts, suggestions and ideas please head over to this feedback section and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
6. Get involved: Notice those trophy points next to my name and in the top right of your settings? You can earn trophies for being a great contributor, having good discourse and of course, getting likes. (What would the PC Gamer forums be without a bit of gamification to reward our good users ey?) If you want some quick links to threads full of ways to contribute, here are some of our favourites:
What was the first video game you remember playing?
What RPG Characters have you Dated/Had Relationships With?
RPG Red Carpet Megathread - Show off your ingame passion for fashion!
Show us your setup!
So there you have it, tons to do. As you read the forum rules, create accounts, choose avatars and get ready to post, remember you’re building this with us.
