Every game shown at E3 2018’s PC Gaming Show

Matt Sayer 12 June 2018 NEWS

Yakuza on PC, a shark-based RPG and plenty of battle royale action headline an excellent show for PC gamers.

The PC Gaming Show is a relatively new addition to the E3 schedule, and for the last few years it has struggled a little to find its identity amidst the bigger presentations from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. Not so this year. E3 2018's PC Gaming Show knocked it out of the park with more than 30 games shown on stage, the majority of which were world exclusive reveals.

Strategy fans were treated to deeper looks at upcoming titles like the quirky Two Point Hospital, a spiritual successor to Theme Hospital that retains the original game's wacky humour, as well as a glimpse of the historical city-building of Anno 1800. Those more interested in quirky indie games weren't left out in the cold, either, getting a gander at intriguing titles like the cyberpunk taxi adventure Neo Cab, the gorgeous hoverbike action-adventure game Sable and the adorable Pokemon-like creature collector Ooblets.


Of course, no PC-focused show in 2018 would be complete without a few battle royale games, and E3 2018's PC Gaming Show had no fewer than three. Mavericks Proving Grounds promises a ludicrous 1,000 players duking it out on a single map; Realm Royale delivers a new crafting-focused spin on the SMITE universe; and Rapture Rejects applies a top-down perspective to the battle royale genre and sprinkles in a hefty dose of Cyanide and Happiness.

If that doesn't do it for you, SEGA delivered some massive news by confirming that Yakuza is making its way to PCs. Beginning with Yakuza 0 in August, PC gamers will finally be able to get their hands on the much-loved story-focused beat 'em series.

That was hardly it for the games shown at the PC Gaming Show, so check out the table below for the complete list along with their accompanying trailers:
