The PC Gaming Show Announces Their Return
Great news and looking forward to seeing what is shown.
Now in its ninth year, this summer sees the glorious return of the PC Gaming Show, packed with more reveals and updates than ever before, including the announcement of more than 15 never-before-seen games. Broadcasting from a new high-rise base of operations, returning hosts Sean “Day” Plott and Frankie Ward have scanned the PC landscape to select the most exciting, innovative, and mind-bending projects to showcase.
Drawing upon the biggest trend in technology, the PC Gaming Show will use AI to enhance the broadcast. “AI is 100% guaranteed to make everything better, cheaper, and more effective, so we figured, why not integrate AI directly into the PC Gaming Show?” says host Sean “Day” Plott. “What can possibly go wrong?”
Sean “Day” Plott is a gaming and esports personality whose videos attract more than two million views each month. Plott also recently founded his own game development studio. Frankie Ward regularly hosts international esports events across a variety of games including Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends. The duo have been appearing together on the PC Gaming Show since 2018.
“PC gaming overflows with interesting games,” says PC Gamer Global Editor-in-Chief Evan Lahti. “Our goal is always to lift up the broad spectrum of novel and creative work happening on PC, from major series like PUBG, XCOM, and ARK to genre-advancing stuff like Valheim, which debuted on the PC Gaming Show in 2020.”
This year’s summer PC Gaming Show is even bigger than usual, featuring 55 games in total, including 16 new game announcements, and special access to developers’ studios around the world. Here are just a few of the games that are confirmed to appear:
- Baldur’s Gate 3, by Larian Studios
- Dune: Awakening, by Funcom
- Frostpunk 2, by 11 bit studios
- Pax Dei, by Mainframe Industries
- A brand-new game from Klei Entertainment
Last summer’s PC Gaming Show reached a peak concurrent viewership of over 4.3M globally, and was co-streamed by more than 70 channels. This year’s event will be broadcast via twitch.tv/pcgamer, youtube.com/pcgamer, twitch.tv/twitchgaming, Steam and China’s Bilibili platform.
