How to Watch The PC E3 2016 Press Conference

The event aims to be "even better" than the inaugural show last year.

71 Comments

Today, PC Gamer announced that its PC Gaming Show, which made its debut at E3 2015 and brought a few announcements, will return this year. The show will take place live in Los Angeles on Monday, June 13 at 12 noon PST / 3 PM EST. Make sure to bookmark this page and return at the start time to catch the live stream; we'll have it embedded below.

In previous years, this would have clashed with EA's briefing. However, for 2016, EA has elected to hold its briefing on Sunday afternoon.

PC Gamer says this year's show will be "even better" than last year. The site acknowledged that last year's event was too long; this year's will be "more focused," but will still have "tons of new announcements and exclusive reveals."

There is no word yet on which developers and companies will appear at the event, but more information will be announced in the coming weeks.

Some of the news from the first PC Gaming Show last year included the confirmation of Gears of War Ultimate Edition's PC edition and the announcement of Frontier's Planet Coaster.

With the PC Gaming Show's E3 plans now in place, we now have learned about three briefings for this year. EA will hold its event at 1 PM PST on Sunday, June 12, while Bethesda will have its own later that evening. If history holds, Microsoft and Sony will follow on Monday alongside the PC Gaming Show, with Nintendo and Ubisoft's events on Tuesday, June 14.

Seems the PC side got small. Soon it'll be held in a small conference room in Wichita at the Bradewood Inn. See Gus, he'll give you a deal.

So far it has been good. Better than EA's - not quite as good as Bethesda's.

The problem was that it actually was more like a talk show and not like the others that are more like a conference, so some of the interview parts kinda dragged on a bit.

"even better" that's not a high standard to live up to. you could try "actually good", "won't make you fall asleep", or "please, just one more chance"

I liked the format of the show last year, but there are definitely room for much improvement.

I don't necessarily think PC gaming needs the show, but it's cool to see.

I don't think that PC show matters , Devs have their own shows where they show up multiplatform games , unless it'l be blast and not boring like last "amd" show.

@wexorian: I don't think people are interested in the PC section for games (nore does it need to, unlike consoles PCs don't depend on exclusives to be relevant), it has more to do with tech presentation, new GPUs or price drops or new engines that can make games look beasty for the fraction of raw power needed, etc, but yeah last year was disappointing, hopefully this year they show off something good.

@Dark_sageX: The super big publishers get a show of their own. Sony and Microsoft can cover some not-so-big-publisher games. Who's going to talk about the games from the not-so-big publishers on PC like Paradox or 3D Projekt Red?

@Zloth2: Either those devs themselves or let them sign a contract with big publishers to market their games for them, either way thats not really the PC platforms problem, there are tons of games available on PC already plus its an open platform so nobody really represents or own the PC market. Sony, MS and Nintendo on the other hand need to present games because thats the only way their systems can ever be relevant, if they don't present anything then nobody will buy their systems. What the PC market needs is better and cheaper tech to be sold´to attract more people and thats what their PC E3 section should be all about, companies like nvidia and AMD need to present hardware because thats what they ultimately are, hardware companies, they should show off, GPUs, CPUs, Mobos, game engines, VR, ect.

Im just glad i jumped on to pc gaming when i did( just now). Own a ps4 but am not satisfied with its library. Everything that comes out for it is either a remake or a remaster and i didn't spend that kind of money for things i could run on older systems. That said as a new pc owner im happy to see whats in store for this years E3.

I enjoyed format of PCG show. It was way more chilled than corporate conferences, less suits' gibberish (MS/AMD brought some of that shit though). The problem was the content. I hope it will be better this year. Companies associated with PC gaming (e.g. Valve, GOG.com, Creative Assembly, Paradox, Firaxis, inExile, Obsidian, inXile, Larian, Blizzard etc. ) should be always guests of this show.

The Planet Coaster trailer first shown at last year's show was so great to see. Every time I watch it I get chills.

Hopefully Nvidia get their shit together this time and demonstrate some proper DX12 utilization, as a costumer it pisses me off that they are not holding to their promises, had I known AMD would be doing so well I would have went team red instead of getting a GTX 970 with a 3.5GB vram.

@Dark_sageX: I have been jumping between the two for years now. I have to say, AMD presented way more headaches the the Nvidia did in terms of overall experience. Even though in paper it is clear that AMD offers more value for money over Nvidia.

@Moonco: Settle down everyone. There are many great upcoming indie games that I'm excited about like Cuphead, 90's Arcade Racer and River City Ransom: Underground. However, for every gem there is a truck load of crap indie games that stink up the place that I have no interest in seeing at this years conference.

@Moonco: Without this "crap" gaming would be incredibly boring, unoriginal and repeatable. Also indie devs bring dead genres to life.

@SoulScribe: That would be cool, but MS intentionally killed Ensemble Studios (creators of AoE series) and other internal departments associated with PC gaming.
