Edge, the UK's most respected videogame magazine, is relaunching on Apple's NewsStand with a fully interactive (and rather beautiful) iPad Edition. Better still, this first issue in the revolutionary new format is on offer at half the normal price at just £1.99 / $2.99 / €2.49 until July 18.
You may have tried the free iPad Sampler Edition a few weeks back, but this is the real deal. The new iPad edition features interactive elements in addition to bespoke full-screen videos, screenshot/art galleries and hidden bonus elements, delivering much more content than is possible in the standard print edition. Pages are animated, audio features are included and the custom navigation tool makes it easy to navigate around using the Apple tablet's touch-screen interface.

This first new iPad Edition includes:
- Frank O'Connor and Phil Harrison on how they're aiming to prepare Halo 4 for legendary status
- Peter Molyneux on the psychological games at the heart of his new venture, 22Cans
- The making of Super Mario 3D Land
- Reviews of Lollipop Chainsaw, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, Spec Ops: The Line and Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown
