    Just wanted to give a heads up for any big skin fanatics out there (like me lol) or maybe you just want to pick up a new champ, that Caitlyn along with an Exclusive Caitlyn skin (pictured below) will be included with the upcoming Nov. issue of the US PC Gamer (LoL is the cover story). Supposedly issue will be hitting shelves on the 13th of this month. I'll be picking up my issue at Frys as soon as I can :)

    *UPDATE #1* Sadly for EU players it looks like the code will only work on NA servers (comes as surprise b/c of all other previous skin codes being cross server compatible), was able to find a RIOT employees post on the EU LoL forums conforming so "Sadly no, the codes are just for NA, the wont work in our platform." Link to RIOT post - http://eune.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=3802386

    *UPDATE #2* It has also come to light that the Caitlyn skin will be a "timed exclusive". "PC Gamer gets this skin first as a temporary exclusive. It will be made available in the store at a later date."-RIOT employee's post from the US LoL forums. Link to RIOT post http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=13811842#post13811842

    *UPDATE #3* I was able to grab an issue at Walmart (took going to 2 of them, after I got a tip some walmarts put copies out). BE WARNED sadly the mag does not come in any packaging or plastic sleeve, so hopefully the store you pick your copy up at does not have a scumbag go through and write/phone pic all the codes :/

    I'll look into this. I don't know that I've played that character, but I certainly might weigh the contents of that magazine against the price to possibly pick up a cool character and costume. Thanks for the heads up.

    Does region matter? Because PC gamer is pretty damn different depending on where you are.

    I am not 100% but I believe that it is US PC Gamer.

    Sucks for those outside of the US but if anyone wants to pay for the mag and cover shipping I could probably send a few out if anyone really wants one.

    No problem and yeah Caitlyn is pretty sweet. She is a ranged AD champ that is currently pretty strong.

    lol word...I am guessing you already got the the free Tristina and Tristina skin then from liking the LoL facebook page?

    Does this work the same as other promotional codes? The same can be used on different regions?
     
    Anyway, the artwork of Katarina on the cover is so much better than her current one.

    How much is one magazine? If not too much I would just need the code via e-mail and paypal the money.

    Same. Don't feel like promoting US PC gamer.

    edit- some Barnes and noble's near me carry Edge (UK) which is sweet. UK gaming mags in general are better than US ones.

    Yeah, damn PC Gamer for not giving free codes to a bunch of countries they don't even exist in. Europe has had it's own promos so stop whining.

    wow like Detrian mentioned above looks like the codes might be for EU only, wasnt sure at first but looked into it and found a post by a Riot employee on the EU forums stating "Sadly no, the codes are just for NA, the wont work in our platform."

    link to his post - http://eune.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=3802386 it is the 3rd post down

    @TRAYNREK said

    the original Games Radar article I read said the mag will hit shelves on Sept 13, do not know how concrete that is but i'll be sure to post as soon as pick up copy

    EDIT* Dang just found something else out lol, the caitlyn skin will be a "timed exclusive" meaning it will eventually be available in the LoL store at a later time, RIOT post "PC Gamer gets this skin first as a temporary exclusive. It will be made available in the store at a later date." So that is a lot different than I was expecting, thought it was going to be a PC Gamer only type skin.

    So got a tip some walmarts had put copies put, it took going to two of them but was able to grab a copy from Walmart. I was able to redeem the skin code just fine but BE WARNED that the mag does not come in any sleeve or wrapping or anything like that so hopefully whatever store you go to doesn't have some scumbag go through and write/phone pic all the codes before you pick up your copy :/

    Yeah, Walmart is the place where I've heard most reports of people buying them. Here's a preview of the skin and her animations:
        

       
    I wish the coat was red to go with the whole soviet thing but it's a pretty cool skin.  It will also be on the store sometime so European players and people who can't get a code can still get her.
     
    I'm still looking for a code too, in case anyone is willing to barter for one.

    Arctic Warfare Caitlyn isn't an exclusive. That skin has been out for a bit now.

    Also, can anyone confirm whether or not the code inside is only for the Arctic Warfare skin, or do you get Caitlyn the champ as well? If you get both, then that's a great package. One of the better ranged AD carry champs in the game IMO.

    Picked one up at the local Safeway but the code is invalid, someone must have copied down the code and took it for themselves. Why these weren't sealed is beyond me. Submitted a ticket with a picture of my code and a receipt, so here's hopin'...

    The skin has mentioned in the updated original post is currently a timed exclusive to PC Gamer, but yes it will at some later currently unannounced time, be available for purchase in the LoL store. Also to answer your question, yup if you enter the code and currently do not own Cait, the champ itself will also be unlocked. I agree she def one of the better ranged AD's at the moment.
