The PC Gaming Show organizers have not only confirmed that the show has now been re-scheduled to run starting on June 13 but have revealed some of the studios that will be participating as well as the games they intend to showcase.

All told, the PC Gaming Show is set to feature more than 50 games as well as “more surprise announcements.” The studios confirmed to be participating in the showcase include 2K Games, Amazon Games, Funcom, Humble Games, and SEGA. We fully expect more developers to join that line-up either closer to the event itself or as part of the aforementioned surprise announcements.

While only a few of the show’s participants have confirmed which games they will be showcasing, we do know that titles such as Mafia: Definitive Edition, Surgeon Simulator 2, and Remnant: From the Ashes will be featured during the event. There will also be an “exclusive interview with Rocketwerkz founder Dean Hall about his next project.”

It’s also been confirmed that this PC Gaming Show will benefit from surprisingly elaborate production considering the incredible circumstances that it will be conducted during.

“With this year’s PC Gaming Show, we still wanted to deliver on the spectacle and level of production that gamers expect from gaming press conferences,” says Evan Lahti, Global Editor-in-Chief at PC Gamer. “We’re not going to just show people a two-hour Zoom call with some video games in it. We want this to be a unique and fun moment for PC gaming.”

According to a press release, the 2020 PC Gaming Show feature two hosts (Sean “Day9” Plott and Frankie Ward) who will utilize two virtual sets (which includes a “custom-built physical set to create a thematic throughline between the show’s dozens of segments). It also seems that viewers will be able to “see selected comments inserted directly into the broadcast live via Hovercast.” On top of that, viewers will have the chance to win a custom PC modeled after one of the event’s games.

Additional event content includes “gaming celebrity cameos, influencer commentary, and the introduction of a mystery co-host.” The PC Gaming Show organizers state that all of these features are in service of telling “stories about the most exciting games being made on PC.”

The 2020 PC Gaming Show is just one of the virtual events taking place over the next few weeks which are partially designed to replace the canceled E3 2020 event. You should expect June and July to be an incredibly busy time for the video game industry.
