Biggest PC gaming news from E3 2021

This year's E3 PC Gaming Show hurled trailer after trailer of upcoming (and some already available) games at us, though as you'd expect there weren't many hotly anticipated games.

Premieres included:

  • Citizen Sleeper, a complex but cool-looking survival RPG where you're going to be put out of commission by An Evil Company.

  • Tinykin, an utterly adorbs 3D platformer we won't see until 2022.

  • Fighting fantasy RPG Soulstice, coming 2022.

  • Silt, a moody monochrome underwater adventure with woodcut-like graphics.

  • Lakeburg Legacies, a deck-building game about everyday life in a medieval village.

  • Humble Games' Dodgeball Academia, which is exactly what it says on the tin. Coming in 2021.

  • The 8-bit bloodshed-and-magic sequel Project Warlock 2.

  • Ixion, a space station strategy sim in which Earth is dying and you're the manager of a space station that's humanity's last hope.

  • Far Changing Tides (from Okomotive the developers of FAR: Lone Sails), where you're the captain of a ship in a flooded world searching for a new home. Coming in late 2021.

  • Wartales, a medieval turn-by-turn open-world RPG in which you play a mercenary, coming later this year.

  • Next Space Rebels just looks weird, but it's a game about home rocket building in an alternative future with the spirit of Hypnospace Outlaw. Coming this fall.


We've assembled all the big news right here, so you can get caught up on everything in one handy place.

THE BIGGEST REVEALS

Starfield

The video leaked literally 20 minutes before Microsoft's show started, but it didn't matter. The debut trailer for Bethesda's "first new universe in over 25 years" made for one of the most genuinely exciting E3 moments in years.

Elden Ring

The long-awaited Elden Ring gameplay reveal was another huge moment, and as an added bonus we got a release date, too: January 21. The community reaction was about what you'd expect.

Diablo 2: Resurrected

Diablo 2 is 21 years old (wow) but it's one of the best ARPGs ever made, and the Resurrected remaster is looking very promising. It's also now got a release date of September 23.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands


What's interesting about Gearbox's new shooter isn't that it's a Borderlands spinoff (it is), but that it's not the Borderlands spinoff you expect (it isn't). Still, it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

The Outer Worlds 2

They're making it! And that's about it. Yeah, that's it. Quality teaser, though.

Redfall

Arkane unveiled a brand-new game during the big weekend, a Left 4 Dead-style co-op shooter with vampires and magic. But it's not just an L4D clone: Arkane said that, like its other games, player choice and a reactive world will be central to the experience.
