While consoles hog the bulk of the spotlight at E3, PC gaming is still a big part of the convention. Intel held its first-ever E3 event yesterday, where it announced the VR Challenger League, an esports competition dedicated solely to virtual reality games like The Unspoken and Echo Arena. It’s partnering with Oculus and ESL to make that happen, so it actually has a shot at making VR esports a thing.
During E3’s PC Gaming Show yesterday, we saw some long-awaited upgrades for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (vaulting and weather, oh my!), and Microsoft unveiled Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, a completely remastered version of its classic RTS. Additionally, we caught glimpses of Battletech, the new strategy game in the MechWarrior universe; Cliff Bleszinski’s multiplayer shooter LawBreakers; and Total War: Warhammer 2.
