The E3 PC Gaming Show returned again this year delivering wall-to-wall titles during the 90-minute presentation. Hosts Sean “Day9” Plot, Mica Burton, and Frankie Ward took us through a spaceship themed presentation. The quirky Devbot was also onboard to help navigate the wide depth and breadth of the games.
The future of gaming on the PC platform shines bright with over 40+ titles on display. The format of the show has continued to evolve since its debut in 2015, offering both mainstream and niche titles. Some of the biggest highlights of the presentation came from Chivalry 2, Dying Light 2, Orcs Must Die! 3, and Jurassic World Evolution 2.
Let’s take a look at some of the show stopping announcements and titles!
Chivalry 2 Storms the Castle
Tripwire and Torn Banner Studios presented the details on the next big update to first person medieval experience. The next phase of Chivalry 2’s content plan will double down on the scale of the battlefield. Players will be able to launch full scale invasion parties with friends or a CPU controlled army. There will be more chaos added to battles with destructible environments and naval ships. The ships will allow players to travel across regions creating less lag.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human update
Techland Games update on Dying Light 2 Stay Human was a big highlight of the showcase, offering a deeper look at the game. The human race has been pushed to the brink; civilization has crumbled falling back into the dark ages. It was previously revealed that you will play as Aiden Caldwell, an infected human survivor, who is a powerful weapon and ally to other survivors.
In Dying Light 2, you will be fighting against the infected horde in an area called “The City,” one of the last strongholds for humankind—stay in the light and traverse rooftops to keep safe. The infected are lurking in the dark, waiting for you to make one wrong move.
More details were revealed during the PC Gaming event about Aiden’s backstory and his motivations. Beware of minor spoilers ahead. Aiden is looking for his sister Mia, and he is moving from one settlement to another in hopes of finding her. They both were involved in government medical experiments, which gave Aiden his powers. His path to his sister and the truth will be gruelling. Are you up to the challenge?
