E3 2017 Highlights: PC Gaming Show

E3 2017 Highlights: PC Gaming Show

The PC Gaming Show is here and so is “the guy from intel” who loves to talk about all the cores and multi-thread usage. There were some interesting games that were shown though so here’s the highlights of the conference.

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, a huge expansion that adds new enemies, environments, missions, classes and fellow resistance factions. It is due out on August 29.


Ooblets has been all about adorable Pokemon-esque creatures, and also dancing. Inspired by life sims like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing, Ooblets will let you customize your character and deck out your own house.


Jordan Weisman and Mitch Gitelman unveiled the first footage of its single-player campaign, and the massive Argo ship that will serve as your heavily armed home away from home in a new turn-based tactical combat game based on the storied Battletech franchise.

Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord

Open-ended, medieval-hued action RPG Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord has received another airing, this time at the PC Gaming Show, in the form of a gruesome new trailer. It offers a couple of minutes of gory battlefield slaughter.

Total War: Warhammer 2

Total War: Warhammer 2 is coming to PC on September 28th. To celebrate the announcement, Sega has released a new cinematic trailer featuring high elves and lizardmen having a lovely time out on the battlefield.

Shadowverse: Wonderland Dreams

The card game by Cygames is getting a new expansion pack called Wonderland Dreams.

PlayerUnknown’s Battleground

Now players will finally be able to vault objects like cars, fences, and low walls, climb up and onto taller objects, and even dive through windows. There are also new weather features being added to Battlegrounds. The video shows overcast weather with clouds and fog, streets slick with rain, and a sunset. Finally, we get a look at a new bullpup rifle, the OTS Groza. “It looks cool,” said Greene, before saying two new maps are also in the works.

Killing Floor Summer Sideshow

Starting soon, Killing Floor 2 will be free to play for a week. At the same time, the free Summer Sideshow event is beginning, with a new map, new cosmetic items, and reskinned Zeda.


Bohemia Interactive’s sandbox survival exploration and crafting game, shows off pirates, cars, and a horse being launched from a catapult. Ylands allows for both single and multiplayer experiences, and besides exploring, crafting, and building, it’s a platform for creating custom game modes and adventures because the game editor is built right in.


Not much is known about the new RPG from Klei Entertainment—the studio behind Mark of the Ninja, Don’t Starve, and more, but we have high hopes as the game looks quite promising with its artstyle and what seems to be turn-based combat.

Lone Echo

In Lone Echo’s single player story, you’ll be transported to an advanced mining facility within the rings of Saturn, complete with a detailed space station, expansive outer-space environments, and interactive space equipment. Taking on the role of Jack—an advanced artificial intelligence with a state-of-the-art synthetic body—you’ll help Captain Olivia Rhodes solve an increasingly threatening mystery as you use futuristic tools, clever problem solving, and interactive dialogue to engage with the world around you.

Echo Arena

VR team sport game Echo Arena will be free for Oculus Rift owners, the dev announced during the Intel Conference this morning. The ten-player zero-G frisbee game, which is based on the studio’s single-player Lone Echo, joins Robo Recall on the list of free Rift pack-ins.


LawBreakers, the new arena FPS from Cliff Bleszinski’s Boss Key studio, will release August 8. The date was revealed by Bleszinski along with the new trailer above. It’ll be $29.99, he added, “none of the $60 multiplayer-only game bullshit.”

The Last Night

French indie developer Odd Tales took to the stage of the PC Gaming Show to share the first glimpse at gameplay for the studio’s 2.5D cyberpunk sidescroller The Last Night. Although the game was first revealed yesterday at Microsoft’s conference, the game will also be coming to PC and the Twitch highlight above is the first time we’ve seen actual gameplay.


Tunic, which previously went by the name Secret Legend, stars a cute fox taking part in some surprisingly fast-paced sword-swinging and dodge rolling as it explores a gorgeous isometric world. You can see a hint of that world, as well as some combat and a pretty intimidating boss fight, in the trailer above, which debuted at the PC Gaming Show.

Sea of Thieves

We got another look at in-game Sea of Thieves footage, as well as confirmation that it’ll support 4K and ultrawide resolutions on PC, and have an unlocked framerate.

Age of Empire: Definitive Edition

And here’s the final announcement of the show: Age of Empires is getting a remastered version, with updated graphics, an orchestral soundtrack, and gameplay improvements. The 20 year old classic is back, and Microsoft hinted that there’s more to come.

That wraps up the highlights from The PC Gaming Show that showcased a lot of indie titles and no really big AAA Title that could push the PC to the limit. Let us know what you thought about the show and stay tuned for more E3 highlights.
