This year, there's going to be one more press conference for us all to worry about at E3: The PC Gaming Show. Run by the venerable PC Gamer (which, like us, is published by Future), it takes place from 5pm to 8pm PDT on Tuesday, June 16th. That's at the rather inhospitable time of 1am to 4am for us here in the UK.
Hosted by Sean 'Day' Plott (an e-sports commentator and former Starcraft pro), the PC Gaming Show will take place at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, and will be streamed live on Twitch. It promises "new game reveals, updates on beloved series, and perspectives from key PC developers." Participants include Square-Enix, AMD, Blizzard, Paradox, Bohemia, Devolver and Cliff Bleszinksi. There are more details on its website, if you're curious.
Tim Clark, global editor-in-chief of PC gamer, had this to say:
"We’re living in a golden age of PC gaming, but unlike other platforms the PC has no format holder, no marketing department, and—until now—no event during E3 week purely devoted to it. We think a show like this, which brings together people from every corner of PC gaming to celebrate the exciting things happening, is long overdue. We hope you’ll join us, in person or on stream, to be part of it."
