PC Gaming Show E3 2016 live report

Ark! Bohemia! Dawn of War! Live from 7.30pm BST.

A relatively new and very welcome part of E3 is the PC Gaming Show, where some of the lesser sung - and generally more interesting - games are allowed to take centre stage. We're expecting new looks at Dawn of War 3, and hopefully some news from Ark developer Studio Wildcard as well a handful of surprises. It's all live from 7.30pm BST.

Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage
Er, hello *runs in, hair askew, zips up flies*. Wasn't expecting this to start so soon!

Martin Robinson

We're still dealing with the aftermath of the Xbox conference, but we'll be here shortly. Very shortly, in fact - only 15 minutes to go.

Martin Robinson

I kind of feel sorry for them - this is sitting awkwardly between Microsoft and Ubisoft at 9pm so they might struggle to get the numbers.

Martin Robinson

We're watching from the office, though, where we have chocolate covered cornflake cakes and it's all feeling a bit like Christmas.

Martin Robinson

That is a cheap, cheap tie. But I love this guy's enthusiasm. It begins!

Martin Robinson

And, this is 100 minutes. Which means it's overlapping with the Ubisoft show.

Martin Robinson

Which also means we'll be tuning out before the end. What a strange thing for them to do.

Martin Robinson

Anyway, let's get straight into Dawn of War.

Martin Robinson

I'm a fan of this talkshow format - it's laid-back, fun and I think it works well.

Martin Robinson

Also this stage is giving me flashbacks to Whose Line Is It Anyway's set.

Martin Robinson

Which can only mean that Mike McShane and Ryan Stiles are going to pop up soon.

Martin Robinson

We'll have a Dawn of War 3 preview up on the site shortly, by the way - should be dropping at 9pm BST.

Martin Robinson

I've only just noticed that huge space marine.

Martin Robinson

Is that Josie Lawrence in there?

Martin Robinson

This whole thing is greatly improved if you have the Whose Line Is It Anyway theme played over the top.

Martin Robinson

Also, man - you wouldn't get away with those opening credits today.

Martin Robinson

And while I was doing that, we got a brief look at Oxygen Not Included, the new game from the gods at Klei.

Martin Robinson

Ark is up right now. Dinosaurs.

Martin Robinson

Apologies for the silence on this end, we're setting up the next report at the moment and will be back shortly!

Martin Robinson

Giant Cop is about to take to the stage.

Martin Robinson

I find it peculiar this is from Other Ocean - the studio behind the less-than-successful Street Fighter 4 PS4 port. This does look great, though - everyone was going nuts over it at EGX.

Martin Robinson

Mount & Blade is up, and somewhere Chris Bratt's nipples are pointing skywards.

Martin Robinson

Surge, from Lords of the Fallen developers.

Martin Robinson

It's sci-fi Dark Souls, right? I mean, I think that's what a lot of people really wanted from From.

Martin Robinson

Promenade, an all-new map for what looks very, very much like Lawbreakers.

Martin Robinson

Oh, it is Lawbreakers! Hi Cliff the B!

Martin Robinson

Suit jacket, jeans, pumps, death.

Martin Robinson

Lawbreakers is Cliff doing civil engineering, basically. I think I can get behind that.

Martin Robinson

The AMD section is fast becoming my favourite part of E3.

Martin Robinson

It's a box of hardware. It gets straight to it. I love it.

Martin Robinson

Someone is now wearing a PC as a backpack, along with Vive. I mean, you just wouldn't get this at Sony or MS, would you? It's beautiful.

Martin Robinson

"Isn't that cool," says our guest. Yes, it emphatically is. There's nothing cooler than wearing a PC on your back.

Martin Robinson

'We each have two eyes. Shouldn't we have two GPUs?'

QFT.

Martin Robinson

The strongest performance yet at E3 from AMD.

Martin Robinson

A good look at Vampyr, then onto Tripwire's Killing Floor 2.

Martin Robinson

News news news - Superhot is coming to Oculus Touch.

Martin Robinson

That's a pretty perfect fit.

Martin Robinson

SteveMsater: This guy has a face like a pie in the Beano

I feel bad for missing out on this now.

Martin Robinson

I've been enjoying this so far, but this Razer section is stretching into self-parody.

Martin Robinson

We've ten minutes until Ubisoft starts.

Martin Robinson

Not that I'm saying you should tune out of this particular conference!

Martin Robinson

We're abandoning this thread to turn our attentions to Ubisoft. It's been a fine show. Thanks!
