The PC Gaming Show is different from other Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) events. It doesn’t focus on a single publisher or game company. Instead, it celebrates PC gaming.
But it still had plenty of announcements and trailers. Below, we list everything we saw at this year’s PC Gaming Show.
This is from Coffee Stain Studios. Satisfactory is a multiplayer first-person game with an emphasis on building. And it has a lot of conveyor belts! Like, so many conveyor belts, guys. It has trains, too! The trailer also showed players riding around in dune buggies. A closed alpha is starting within the next few months.
The first indie game of the show focuses on a cab driver (or Uber or whatever they’re using in the future) in a cyberpunk world. It is coming out for PC and mobile and devices.
And here’s our first battle royale game of the show. But while most support 100, players, this one has can have upward of 1,000. So, it must be like 100 times better than Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, right?
