Microsoft has revealed a more dedicated approach to PC gaming over the last couple of months, helped along by the release of Xbox Game Pass for PC during E3 2019 this week. As such, we kept an eye on the PC Gaming Show that took place at E3, and we found there were quite a few games that were shown that may be of interest to you, not just as a PC gamer, but also as an Xbox player. In case you missed it, you can still see the entire show on Youtube below.
If you don't have two hours to spare, we also have a summary of the relevant bits for you. We've already seen Zombie Army 4: Dead War, which was officially announced during the show. Cris Tales, an indie RPG, was also revealed. There was an interview with Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey creator Patrice Désilets [1:35:48] and another with Borderlands 3 Creative Director Paul Sage [1:47:03]. Finally, Warframe upcoming expansion Empyrean was teased. Here's the rest:
Players got their first glimpse of gameplay for Hardsuit Labs' RPG that's set in the World of Darkness. There's a glimpse of the vampire abilities, story objectives, characters, player choices, and several of the game's locations. The trailer below is an extended version of the one that was shown during the PC Gaming Show.
The latest trailer for Krillbite Studio's upcoming title gave us an insight into the dark and surreal world in which players will find themselves. Caught in a daily grind of drudgery, but surrounded by dreams and nightmares, it's up to you to make sense of the world. In the meantime, you can distract yourself with a mobile title called BlipBlop, both in-game and in the real world. If you want to download BlipBlop, it's available now from the iOS App Store and Google Play.
Funcom took to the stage next. We got the briefest of glimpses at the "Seeds of Evil" expansion for Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden using footage from its reveal trailer, before confirmation that Moons of Madness is still in development. You can see the full trailer for the latter title below in case you missed it a couple of months ago.
Every year, there's an April Fools' joke that is so popular it becomes reality. This year, it's a roguelike hack and slash spoof that will be "the most realistic stick figure game ever to feature Conan the Barbarian". Set in Hyboria, Conan, Pallantides, Valeria, or Bêlit must stop the evil wizard Thoth-Amon from resurrecting the "even eviler" wizard Xaltotun and plunging the world into darkness. The game supports up to four players in co-op as you'll learn to swing left and right, face a giant gorilla in a cape, and find plenty of loot when it arrives on September 3rd.
Triumph Studios' turn-based strategy title has plenty of strange factions for players to control. The latest trailer for the game showed some of these six factions in action, including laser dinosaurs ridden by the Amazons, the Assembly's cyborg-zombies, and the more traditional military-oriented Vanguard. If you want a closer look at those laser dinosaurs, they've got their own faction trailer that you can see here.
The latest trailer for Gunfire Games' shooter shows an all-consuming evil that is consuming not just your home planet but all of the worlds surrounding it. You'll need to defeat a whole range of monsters if you're to save the world. The game will be out on August 20th if you fancy giving it a go.
Steel Mantis' fast paced old school metal adventure got a 70 second blast of complete mayhem as the player used a variety of over-the-top weapons to take down all manner of creatures. One of the weapons used was the Bringer of Mayhem, a "gut-rupturing gun"that also made it onto the PC Gaming stage.
Finally, Honig Studios' upcoming title is a non-violent spaghetti western where a six-year-old boy must use stealth to avoid the detection of adults and find his way back to his mother. The latest trailer shows a variety of tactics he can use as he tries to avoid being caught by the many people that are in his way.
