‘PC gaming overflows with interesting games,’ Evan Lahti, PC Gamer global editor-in-chief said in a press release. ‘Our goal is always to lift up the broad spectrum of novel and creative work happening on PC, from major series like PUBG, XCOM, and ARK to genre-advancing stuff like Valheim, which debuted on the PC Gaming Show in 2020.’
Ubisoft Forward – 12 June
Times: 10:00 am PT | 1:00 pm ET | 6:00 pm BST (12 June) | 3:00 am AEST | 1:00 am AWST (13 June)
Ubisoft Forward returns in June 2023, and there are plenty of reasons to take note of this showcase. For one thing, Ubisoft has been fairly quiet lately, with few new releases currently scheduled for the calendar year. It’s likely there’s something cooking behind-the-scenes – like a release date for one of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed games, or more news about the studio’s Avatar spin-off adventure game.
Whatever the case, leave some space in your schedule for this showcase.
Like other shows on this list, it will be livestreamed on social media.
Capcom Showcase – 12 June

Following other major Summer Game Fest showcases, Capcom will broadcast a 36-minute event that will feature ‘news and updates on [its] latest games’ and celebrate its 40th anniversary. With the company recently releasing games like Street Fighter 6 and Resident Evil 4 Remake, we can likely expect some updates on their post-launch content roadmaps. The company also confirmed that it will take a closer look at Dragon’s Dogma 2, Exoprimal, and the remastered Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective. Hopefully, there’ll be a few extra surprises, too.
