I never know what to expect from the PC Gaming press conference, although it can’t possibly be as bizarre as Devolver Digital’s satire last night. Let’s take a look!

PC Gaming E3 2017 Press Conference

The PC Gaming conference kicked off with War of the Chosen, the upcoming expansion for XCOM 2.

It then switched tones to show off Ooblets, a town life and creature collecting game. I’ve seen it before, and it looks cute, but I’m not sure it’s my sort of thing.

They moved on to some sci-fi with Battletech, medieval times with Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, and fantasy with Total War: Warhammer II.

Next up was an expansion for a card game called Shadowverse. The expansion is called Wonderland Dreams, and its art style reminded me of JRPGs. I didn’t know anything about Shadowverse, but I didn’t expect that.

They discussed Destiny 2, a contest for indie game developers called Level-Up, and eSports. Then they showed something that looks pretty interesting to me, a cute game starring a fox with what appears to be Zelda-like gameplay. It’s called Tunic.

Tunic looks pretty interesting to me, much more than the discussion of PlayUnknown’s Battlegrounds (though my friends like it), Killing Floor: Incursion and Killing Floor 2’s Summer Sideshow event (which had an amusing trailer), more Forza, and more gameplay from Sea of Thieves.

They showed a bit of The Last Night, which we discussed yesterday, a sandbox game called Ylands, and then an intriguing sci-fi RPG called Griftlands.

From there, they moved to a multiplayer VR game called Echo Arena, and an arena shooter called Lawbreakers, and then to Wargroove. Wargroove is a strategy RPG that highlighted its easy map editor at the PC Gaming show. Inspired by Fire Emblem and Advance Wars, it will be coming to the Nintendo Switch as well (and the Xbox One).

Then they showed some more of Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, and it looks pretty intriguing. I might try those games eventually.

Finally, they closed with Age of Empires: Definitive Edition. I was never able to get into Age of Empires, but I know it will make some of my friends very happy.
