PC Gaming Show Scheduled For E3 Week
The PC Gaming Show is bringing one of the largest video game communities and formats into a new, wider spotlight.
Due to a partnership between publication PC Gamer and processor company AMD, as well as a host of agreed-upon publisher appearances, E3 will finally have a concentrated show for one of the oldest platforms of video games. Publishers stopping by include Square Enix, Cloud Imperium Games, Tripwire Interactive, Bohemia Interactive, Blizzard Entertainment, Obsidian Entertainment, Paradox Interactive and the Humble Bundle people. You can check out that ever-expanding list here.
Anyone looking to attend the PC Gaming Show will be heading to the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 16 from 5PM to 8PM Pacific Time. The show will be hosted by e-sports announcer Sean Plott with guests such as Dean Hall (DayZ) and Cliff Bleszinski (Boss Key Productions) also on the docket. Twitch will also be hosting a live stream of these festivities for those without plane tickets and hotel rooms on retainer.
The focus of this conference is said to range from giving a snapshot of the PC market today to breaking news that could translate into game reveals. However, with Steam, Origin and other services usually offering thousands of cross-platform titles, PC-exclusive games might not be the main focus of this presentation.
In the meantime, the gaming world might want to just be thankful that this PC Gaming Show now exists at all. Home computers have been a gaming medium almost since their creation, and have almost always been capable of customized capabilities well beyond what consoles offer. Still, the platform is often misrepresented as an MMO haven or one for graphical snobs, but some of the most influential titles ever—Half-Life, XCOM, Knights of the Old Republic—blossomed on PC.
This PC Gaming Show is scheduled for the first day of E3 whereas the convention itself runs until June 18.
