PC Gamer has been hosting their own E3-like event each year at E3, highlight PC games and developers. Though E3 2020 was cancelled this year due to the pandemic, the PC Gaming Show is returning for its sixth year. The event features interviews, trailers and announcements for new and upcoming PC games.
“With this year’s PC Gaming Show, we still wanted to deliver on the spectacle and level of production that gamers expect from gaming press conferences,” said Evan Lahti, editor-in-chief, PC Gamer. “We’re not going to just show people a Zoom call with some video games in it. We want this to be a unique and fun moment for PC gaming.”
Previous events have been broadcast live, but this year’s will be pre-recorded. Sean “Day9” Plott and Frankie Ward return to host the event, along with over two dozen celebrity cameos and developers.
The PC Gaming Show will feature over 50 games from developers and publishers like 2K Games, Coffee Stain Studios, Frontier Developments, Humble Games, Perfect World, Rebellion, Sega, and Xseed Games. Confirmed games include Mafia: Remastered Edition, Surgeon Simulator 2, and Torchlight 3.
The show is partially sponsored by Intel, who is giving away a custom-built PC inspired by Total War Saga: Troy. To enter for a chance to win, you’ll need to visit Intel Gaming’s social media sites, including YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter. The winner will be randomly drawn on July 10.
