Bohemia have released the latest in Dslyecxi's Arma III community guide video series. Where previous videos have guided newbies through teamwork, infantry combat, and modding, this time we're being given an overview of the alpha's development history, as well as a feature round-up of the newly beta'd version's features.







Given the amount of additions and fixes Dslyecxi runs through, it's hard to fault Bohemia's treatment of the alpha. Plus we also get some top picks of the mods and missions that are already building a solid community within the game.



With the beta update, the game now includes more showcase missions, new weapons and vehicles, and an extra faction. The big addition - the 270 km2 main island of Atlis - won't arrive until the full game is ready. That's currently expected for some time this Autumn.



We've got loads more coverage available through our Arma 3 hub page. Alternatively you could go and look at these nice screenshots.

The fourth episode of the Community Guide series has gone live for all to see!

Andrew Gluck (better known as Dslyexci from ShackTactical) returns to recap the Arma 3 Alpha and to provide a quick summary of cool community content. The video is concluded with a look at the freshly released Beta - the new faction, vehicles, weapons, scenarios and challenges.

Supporting the development of its upcoming tactical military shooter, Bohemia Interactive has released the anticipated Arma 3 Beta. The Arma 3 Beta expands the game’s diversity by focusing upon heavy firepower and military logistics. Combined with the playable content from the Arma 3 Alpha, the complete package features the 20 km² island of Stratis, 20 weapons, 18 vehicles, 3 factions, 8 showcase missions, 4 multiplayer scenarios, 4 challenges, the scenario editor and modding support.

Jay Crowe, Creative Director on Arma 3, adds:
“The Beta is a big opportunity for us to involve more players in Arma 3's development and is the next step along the road towards our full release. With a variety of new singleplayer and multiplayer scenarios and a whole bunch of new sandbox content, we're looking forward to introducing players to what true combined arms combat really means in Arma 3.”

People who participated in the Arma 3 Alpha will gain access to the Arma 3 Beta by downloading the automatic update on Steam. Those who are new to Arma 3 can purchase the Arma 3 Beta (which includes the full retail game when released) from Steam or Store.bistudio.com.

Here they can choose between the regular Arma 3 Beta (34.99 EUR/29.99 GBP/44.99 USD) or the Arma 3 Digital Deluxe Edition (44.99 EUR/39.99 GBP/59.99 USD). Those who would like to sponsor development further, also have the option to purchase the Arma 3 Supporter Edition (69.99 EUR/59.99 GBP/91.99 USD) from Store.bistudio.com. The price of each edition will increase upon launch of the full and final game.

Arma 3 is the latest installment in Bohemia Interactive’s award-winning tactical military shooter series for PC. Set in a massive Mediterranean sandbox of over 290 km², the game will have 40+ weapons, 20+ vehicles, a wide variety of single- and multiplayer gameplay, and limitless options for content creation.

I didn't do itAll good things must come to an end, and the Arma 3 Alpha is pretty good (Steam says I’ve played it for a healthy 36 hours). If you’re still considering buying it, you only have one more day left to buy it at the alpha price of €24.99, £19.99, $32.99. Tomorrow the Alpha fades out, like a flare sputtering its last embers of warning light, and the beta replaces it. It has more official content: 10 vehicles, 7 weapons, more showcase missions (Combined Arms, Supports, Commanding & Night), 2 multiplayer scenarios and 4 challenges, and with it comes a base price of €34.99, £29.99, and $44.99. Think of it as a military upgrade, or a nice new pair of trousers. (more…)

Community Announcements - Nelios
Today Bohemia Interactive confirmed the 25th of June as the official release date for the Arma 3 Beta. Building upon the well-received Arma 3 Alpha, the Arma 3 Beta features a varied selection of brand new content – including 10 vehicles, 7 weapons, 4 showcase missions (Combined Arms, Supports, Commanding & Night), 2 multiplayer scenarios and 4 challenges.

Set against the beautiful backdrop of Stratis (20 km²), the Arma 3 Beta turns its focus towards firepower and logistics. The Challenges game mode will also be making its first appearance, enabling players to practice their weapons handling and movement across a selection of firing drills. Plus, all of the content from the Arma 3 Alpha will be available, alongside the popular scenario editor and modding support.

Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, Project Lead on Arma 3, adds:
“Having just showed off the Beta for Arma 3 at E3 2013, we are keen to get it into gamers' hands quickly. Bringing some heavy firepower and additional transport options will allow for more diverse scenarios in both singleplayer and multiplayer. We also can't wait to open up the Steam Workshop scenario publication, which will make content-sharing with other players much more convenient.”

People who are currently participating in the Arma 3 Alpha will gain access to the Arma 3 Beta through an automatic Steam update. Those who are new to Arma 3 can join in by purchasing the Arma 3 Beta (which includes a version of the full game) from Steam or Store.bistudio.com.

The price of the Arma 3 Beta, in comparison to the Arma 3 Alpha, will be increased. The regular Arma 3 Beta will be available for 34.99 EUR/29.99 GBP/44.99 USD (current price: 24.99 EUR/19.99 GBP/32.99 USD), while the Arma 3 Digital Deluxe Edition will be sold for 44.99 EUR/39.99 GBP/59.99 USD (current price: 39.99 EUR/34.99 GBP/49.99 USD). Please note that the current (heavily discounted) Alpha deal, which includes Beta-access and the full game, will still be available until Tuesday June 25th.

Those who would like to sponsor development further have the option to purchase the Arma 3 Supporter Edition (69.99 EUR/59.99 GBP/91.99 USD) from Store.bistudio.com. The Arma 3 Alpha Lite, a free but limited variant of the Arma 3 Alpha, will be discontinued after June 25th.

title="Permanent Link to Every game at E3 2013 and its PC release outlook">e3 2013 every game







Now that the blinding glare of every major publisher simultaneously projecting marketing at us has dimmed, we have a clearer picture of what E3 2013 revealed, what's important to us, and what we expect to be playing on PC within the next couple years. And here it all is.



In this list, we've compiled every game announced—as well as a few which were shown again—and their PC release statuses, with a few exceptions. We left out games already released on PC, like Diablo III and Planetside 2, as well as long-running console exclusive series and other accepted PC no-shows, such as Kinect Sports Rivals, Super Smash Bros., Killzone: Shadow Fall, Infamous, Halo, and so on.



Alright, so it's actually a list of almost every game shown at E3, but even when you cut E3's Nintendo, Halo, Killzone, and Madden announcements, there's a ton to see, and it's all alphabetized here. We've also color coded each entry: GREEN means confirmed for PC, BLUE means it's a maybe, and RED means we doubt the topic will be discussed anytime soon, but hey, anything can happen.

Arma 3

Announced for PC? Of course!

Release date Beta begins June 25, 2013



Arma 3 is already in alpha, but that didn't keep Bohemia from showing it at E3. Speaking to us at the show, the developer revealed that the beta, with new vehicles, scenarios, and a new faction, will begin on June 25th. We also saw a dozen new screenshots, some of which were grabbed from the beta.





Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date October 29, 2013 (NA), November 1, 2013 (EU)



Want to watch a really weird music video about pirates, but maybe also about drugs? The Assassin's Creed IV "Horizon" trailer, embedded below, is all yours to consume with a cocked eyebrow. If you want to know more about Black Flag's story and protagonist, however, try the E3 cinematic trailer, which begins with a bar fight, and then- oh, wait, nope, another weird music montage. Or you could read our most recent preview of the pirate adventure.





Battlefield 4

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date October 29, 2013 (NA), November 1, 2013 (EU)



Battlefield 4's multiplayer was the focus of E3, and we got to play a round on the Siege of Shanghai map. It was a good time, though we're a bit concerned by the lack of core changes to the Battlefield 3 experience. Still, the vastness of the map and its central, collapsible skyscraper aren't at all trivial features—see how it looks from the perspective of an expert player in a much better organized match below.





Below

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



The beautiful Below, a Capy game with music from Jim Guthrie (the same duo behind Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery LP), was shown at E3 with the enticing trailer below and the tagline "Explore. Survive. Discover." It's only announced for Xbox One, and with Microsoft Studios publishing it may stay that way, but Capy has brought other games to PC.





Black Tusk Studios (untitled game)

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



Black Tusk Studios is one of Microsoft's first-party developers, so whatever this teased game is, it's another expected Xbox One exclusive for all eternity. Unless... Windows 8? Maybe?





Call of Duty: Ghosts

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date November 5, 2013



I wasn't very impressed by the Call of Duty: Ghosts demo shown at E3, but there's still plenty of time for Activison and Infinity Ward to show us something more impressive before the November release. One of our main hopes for Ghosts' campaign is that it'll take risks. So far, the gameplay's novelty looks to rely on sets and set pieces (as seen in the diving level below) and not mechanics. Let's hope we see some experimentation with the latter—I want to see what players are allowed to do on their own, without the precise direction of a soft voice in their ears.





Contrast

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2013



Contrast was announced for PS4 at the show, but it'll be on Steam too, according to the official site.





Crimson Dragon

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



From the creator of Panzer Dragoon comes Crimson Dragon, which looks a lot like a new Panzer, just missing an extra 'o.' Oh, and it's an Xbox One exclusive. Darn.





D4

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



Another Microsoft Studios game, another likely Xbox One exclusive. D4 is an episodic murder mystery set inside a Photoshop filter which somehow makes time travel possible.





Dark Souls 2

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date March 2014



This time, Dark Souls II is coming directly to PC—none of this petitioning malarkey—and we're damn excited to be damned again. We're so excited, we named it the best RPG of E3 2013. That's not a knock on The Witcher 3, which we also expect to be incredible, just acknowledgement of DSII's fantastic demonstration. That mirror boss (about 50 seconds into the video) is just diabolical.





Daylight

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2014



Daylight is a horror game from Zombie Studios announced for the PC and PS4. Abandoned hospital? Check. Flooded basement? Check. Fluorescent light cut into shadows by a slowly spinning ceiling fan? Check. Glimpse of a shadowed figure? Check. Cracked, eyeless porcelain doll? Check! Daylight has all the makings of every horror game ever!



Really, though, it's one we're watching, especially for the "procedurally generated world" which is said to restructure the environment for each new game.





Dead Rising 3

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date November 2013



Dead Rising 2 made it to PC right along with its Xbox 360 and PS3 buddies, but Dead Rising 3's fate lies as an Xbox One exclusive launch game, just as the first in the series was an Xbox 360 exclusive.



Aw, we want to craft electric saw hammers too! If it does well, we can hope DR2 gets a PC port after the second wave of big Xbox One games hits, but don't expect to hear a peep about it during the initial marketing push.





Destiny

Announced for PC? Nope, but it's not been ruled out

Release date TBA 2014



Bungie isn't interested in discussing its new MMO shooter's potential on PC, except to say that the idea is loveable and appetizing. For now, all we can do is look on at the co-op alien killing with fingers crossed that PC support won't be seen as a distraction from console support.





Divekick

Announced for PC? Yep, it's on Greenlight

Release date TBA



Divekick is a 2D fighting game which uses two buttons. One evades, one divekicks. To win, you must divekick your oppenent—one hit earns a knock out. That's Divekick. It sounds a bit ridiculous on paper, but in practice, I'm hearing great things about the game of positioning, timing, and nerves.





Dragon Age: Inquisition

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date Fall 2014



Dragon Age III: Inquisition has become Dragon Age: Inquisition, a sequel with three fewer 'I's (though "inquisition" already has enough, doesn't it?) revealed to be coming next fall. Though the E3 trailer doesn't show any gameplay, it's called "actual game footage," which we assume means "rendered in real-time in Frostbite 3," as "actual pre-rendered cutscene" wouldn't be much to brag about.



We don't know a lot more than what's revealed here, but this is what we'd like to see in DA: Inquisition.





Driveclub

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date November 2013



Evolution Studios, creator of MotorStorm, is building this promising racer exclusively for the PS4. And, like MotorStorm, it'll probably stay that way. Keep on driving, folks, The Crew and Need for Speed: Rivals are just down the road.





Dying Light

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2014



Techland (you probably know 'em from Dead Island, or the recent, surprisingly good Call of Juarez: Gunslinger) has a new zombie game, and it has an urban parkour CG trailer. The video isn't quite the marketing phenomenon that was the Dead Island CG trailer, but it's an enticing offer. That is, assuming the game looks and plays anything like it.





EVR — EVE Virtual Reality

Announced for PC? Sort of

Release date Nope



EVR (EVE Virtual Reality) is the Oculus Rift dogfighting game CCP showed off at Fanfest 2013 and then E3, and it runs on PC...but isn't announced for anything. The pet project is probably being shown to gauge interest in Rift games, and so far, our interest is very, very high.

Table of Contents: A-E | F-M | N-S | T-Z

Fez 2

Announced for PC? TBD

Release date TBD



 All we know about Fez 2 is that it exists, and we hope it comes to PC—even after word that Fez would never escape consoles, it eventually made it to Steam, so our hopes are high.





FIFA 14

Announced for PC? Yep*

Release date September 24, 2013



It's no shocker that there's a new FIFA, and that it's coming to PC later this year. There is a catch, though. *The next-gen "Ignite" engine won't be coming to PC, at least until it can "facilitate the open nature of PC architecture."





Hex: Shards of Fate

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date Beta this year



Hex, a Kickstarted trading card MMO from Cryptozoic, was hidden away at E3, but it was there, running PvP battles and everything. Our friends at GamesRadar recorded the developer demo below:





Hohokum

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



I'm not sure if PixelJunk's stylishly quirky visuals are native to the devs, or if they're a Sony-patented console feature. Hohokum, a downloadable PS4 exclusive from London-based studio Honeyslug, has a lot of that same mojo.



The company has a history of publishing PC and web-based games, so Hohokum may not stay locked up forever. Though if Sony doesn't ever want it to leave, it won't.





Killer Instinct

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date 2013



So this is what Rare has been working on. Killer Instinct is almost certainly stuck exclusively on the Xbox One, but I included it so that you too can enjoy hearing "ULTRAAA COMBOOOOO!"





Knack

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



SCE Studio Japan's Knack could be a trailer for a Dreamworks movie—an unlikely hero, a bit of cute, and some surprisingly good voice acting. It's also an action-platformer that looks at home as a PS4 exclusive, so we don't expect it to wash up on PC shores.





LEGO Marvel Superheroes

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date Fall 2013



It's a LEGO game, so it's coming to every platform there is—I'm surprised Atari Lynx support wasn't announced.





LocoCycle

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date November 2013



I know it's just the set up for a joke, but calling the Xbox One "the most advanced gaming system ever conceived" has to elicit a cross-armed pshhhh. I can't help it. Anyway, this is LocoCycle, Twisted Pixel's unlikely candidate for a PC port.





Lords of the Fallen

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date TBA



Deck 13 and City Interactive are producing an action RPG. It's being compared to Dark Souls. The guy in charge is Tomasz Gop, a former Witcher 2 developer. And, and, it's been announced for PC. Hallelujah.





Mad Max

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2014



Warner Bros. has got Avalanche Studios—creators of the Just Cause series—working on a Mad Max game to be released next year. As expected, it's an open-world game, and if you can get past the oppression of Australians, it's one to be excited for. Avalanche is just the studio for the job.





Mercenary Kings

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2013



Mercenary King looks a lot like Metal Slug, but with added RPG-style depth in the form of weapon crafting. And an adorable dog robot boss. It's coming to PS4, but first, PC pre-orders are already being accepted on the official site.





Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



Kojima won't say whether or not Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released on PC, but he did say that there's hope. So, hope and a new trailer are all we have.





Mirror's Edge 2

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date "When it's ready"



The sequel—or more likely prequel, now that we've seen it—to Mirror's Edge has been long requested and rumored. Five years after its first release, it's finally here. Well, not here here—DICE won't say when it's releasing, but I'd put my money on late 2014.







Table of Contents: A-E | F-M | N-S | T-Z







Table of Contents: A-E | F-M | N-S | T-Z

Need for Speed: Rivals

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date November 19, 2013



The twentieth Need for Speed game brings back the cops vs. racers play of last year's NFS: Most Wanted in an open world. According to EA, NFS: Rivals introduces "seamless" multiplayer.



"Paths cross and experiences merge," reads the official site. "Imagine your race and your friend’s pursuit colliding creating a world where no two events will ever feel the same." Imagining... Imagining... Imagining complete. Yep, sounds cool.





Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'n' Tasty

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date Holiday 2013



It's a "New 'n' Tasty" recreation of 1997's Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, of course.





Outlast

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2013



Red Barrels' Outlast horrified crowds at PAX, and the news at E3 is that it's coming to PS4. But no worries, that shouldn't affect the PC release, which is planned for this summer. Hey, that's right now! Outlast should be on Steam soon, if development is still going as planned.





Payday 2

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date August 13, 2013



 Payday 2 was playable at the show, and in our maiden heist, Evan Lahti, Cory Banks, and I failed. We were told that heists can be handled with stealth, but, covered with bulky armor, we went in masks on and guns drawn. Pretty soon, the bank was surrounded, hostages were fleeing, and gas was choking us. After our drill popped the safe open, we started shoving cash into our bags, but the SWAT team was already inside the bank. Evan was the only one to make it out.



We'll have more on Payday 2 soon—in the meantime, Sony posted the interview below, and check out our most recent preview.





Peggle 2

Announced for PC? TBA

Release date 2013



The only information we have about Peggle 2 is "PEGGLE 2!" and a mid-air freeze frame that was just missing the freeze frame. We assume PopCap's next ball-and-peg game will come to PC, but we can never be too sure—the PC wasn't listed as a launch platform for Plants vs. Zombies 2. Assuming it's not just iOS and Android, though, here are a few things we'd like to see.





Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date "Coming soon"



PopCap's Battlefield parody was announced at E3 for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. It's a four-player co-op shooter—perhaps similar to Dungeon Defenders? We'll see when PopCap releases it "soon." My best guess is early 2014.





Project Spark

Announced for PC? Yep*

Release date TBA



Project Spark is a game-making game—something a bit like Square Enix's GameGlobe—in which players design and sculpt worlds and behaviors to create multiplayer experiences. In the awkward demo below, it's all about fighting goblins, but if Spark's simple scripting is as open as we hope, it could be the start of a great community of tinkerers. It was poorly communicated in the demonstration, but we've heard word from colleagues about such potential.



Spark has been announced for Xbox One and PC...that is, *Windows 8 PCs. The requirement is a bit frustrating, but at least it'll be free-to-play.





Quantum Break

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



Remedy's Xbox One exclusive was announced back at Microsoft's first Xbone reveal conference. We got a new trailer at E3, and more talk of its tie-in TV show, but no word on PC support. That's not a surprise. Given that it's Remedy, though, we won't count it out just yet.





Ray's the Dead

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date TBA



Ray's the Dead, yet another indie coming to PS4, is already on Steam Greenlight with planned Windows, Mac, and Linux releases. It's a zombie game, but rather than fighting zombies, you are one—the devs sum it up as "Pikmin meets Stubbs the Zombie."





Ryse: Son of Rome

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



Crytek is building this Xbox One exclusive, which looks a bit like a third-person action version of Total War: Rome II. Unfortunately, it also looks like an Xbox-only game through and though ("press Y smash head" and all that).





Shadow Warrior

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2014



Flying Wild Hog is the Polish developer behind cyberpunk shooter Hard Reset, which wasn't great, but I liked a lot about it. Since then it's been working on Shadow Warrior, a remake of 3D Realms' absurd 1997 FPS. This one'll probably be a bit more politically correct, but that won't stop it from being ridiculous.





Star Wars: Battlefront

Announced for PC? TBA

Release date TBA



All we have is this teaser trailer, but DICE and EA know that's all we need to get hyped for a new Battlefront. It's DICE and it's Frostbite 3, so we can pretty much assume it'll be on PC (and yes, that means Origin). After all the speculation and rumoring—most recently, Disney signing a deal with EA—we're just happy we can finally stop wondering and start hoping for the best.





Sunset Overdrive

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBD



Even if this trailer is just a pre-rendered concept, everything about Insomniac's new game looks fun. Fun that our friends over at Xbox 360 The Official Magazine will likely be having without us, sadly.







Table of Contents: A-E | F-M | N-S | T-Z







Table of Contents: A-E | F-M | N-S | T-Z

The Crew

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2014



Ubisoft showed off The Crew at its press conference this year with a great trailer about a poltergeist who builds cars. The gameplay walkthrough below is a clearer picture of how the game looks, and what it is: an open-world, MMO-ish, racing and objective-based driving game.





The Elder Scrolls Online

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date Spring 2014, Beta signups now



The Elder Scrolls Online showed up to E3 to talk up its Xbox One and PS4 releases, but we just came for the new gameplay footage.





The Evil Within

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2014



Shinji Mikami, the creator of Resident Evil, is making a new survival horror game. You bet we're excited—The Evil Within is gory, unsettling, and doesn't look like it fits into the "action FPS with slimy enemies that walk weird" category, something we've come to expect from the mutated survival horror genre. Nope, Bethesda is calling it "pure survival horror," and that's how it's looking so far, which is lovely.





The Order: 1886

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



I like almost everything about the debut trailer for The Order: 1886, which was shown at Sony's conference this year. I like alternate history London, complete with regular history fog and smog. I like the spark guns. I like the horse carriage defense scenario. The only thing I don't like is the PS4 exclusivity.



It's kind of a big thing, unfortunately, and it's doubtful that Sony and Ready at Dawn—a developer known for PSP games—will ever send it our way.





The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Announced for PC? Of course!

Release date 2014



The big Witcher 3 news at E3 was that it's coming to Xbox One—no surprise, as the last game was ported over to the Xbox 360, too. That shouldn't affect what we'll be seeing on PC, and so far, what we're seeing is gorgeous: a massive open world to ride and sail through, and all the morally gray decisions we expect Geralt to gruff his way through.





The Witness

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date TBA



Braid creator Jonathan Blow's next game—a puzzle-exploration game set on a MYSTerious island—is a PS4 exclusive, but according to Blow, the deal only applies to competing console platforms, and doesn't prevent the game from releasing on PC. We hope similar agreements apply to some of the other indies Sony snagged for the PS4—from the looks of it so far, we could see a bunch of them on PC.





Thief

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2014



Our first glimpse at Eidos Montreal's Thief reboot was at GDC 2013, and I was impressed by the hands-off demo, as well as by my terrible memory of the series. Square Enix has now delivered more details in a new interview, a bunch of new E3 screenshots, and the trailer below to keep the new Thief at the front of our minds. Get even more Thief coverage here.





Titanfall

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2014



Respawn Entertainment—the developer formed from the ashes of Infinity Ward and Activision's dispute—has finally played its new hand. Titanfall was our favorite new shooter of the show, a futuristic multiplayer FPS which combines some of Tribes' jetpack agility, some of Call of Duty's guns and speed, and some of Hawken's mech battling to create a frankenshooter of great potential.





Tom Clancy's The Division

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date 2014



The Division looks so interesting, the lack of a PC announcement was our biggest disappointment of E3 2013. Hope is far from lost, though—there's a darn good chance Ubisoft is just latching on to the next-gen console train for now and will hop off sometime after it passes launch station this winter.



There's already a petition for a PC release, and by all means sign it if you're interested, but it's doubtful it'll make a difference. I don't expect Ubi needs signatures to know there's interest in a PvE/PvP survival shooter set in all of New York City.





Transistor

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date Early 2014



Supergiant Games' Bastion follow-up got a new trailer at E3, and, of course, its PS4 reveal. It'll be on Steam, too, though. We even got to play it at last year's PAX—have a read of that preview and our latest coverage for more.





Trials Fusion

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date 2014



My eyes are starting to get sore picking out the little "PC Software" logos at the ends of trailers, but at least this was a great trailer to watch. The next of RedLynx's torture chambers for ragdoll motorcyclists, Trials Fusion, is coming to PC in 2014.





Watch Dogs

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date November 19, 2013 (NA), November 22, 2013 (EU)



We were skeptical of Watch Dogs' promises when it was announced at last year's E3, but Ubisoft has slowly chipped away at our skepticism with impressive demos since then. This E3 gave us a weird new CG trailer, the much better gameplay demo below, and some new details on the multiplayer.





Wolfenstein: The New Order

Announced for PC? Yep

Release date Winter 2013



Bethesda and MachineGames's new Wolfenstein is a single-player, id Tech 5-powered addition to the classic series set in a 1960's where the Nazis won. And, as we've seen, it's full of the expected alternate history tech. We'll have more from its E3 showing soon—in the meantime, there's of course a new trailer:





Zoo Tycoon

Announced for PC? Nope

Release date TBA



Yep, Blue Fang's Zoo Tycoon, which is published by Microsoft Game Studios, is an Xbox 360 and Xbox One exclusive. Sure, why not?

The E3 team is back from Los Angeles: tired but proud. We had a good show, nice booth and many great visitors! And let's not forget the lads on the home front doing the second pre-E3 livestream while we were airborne. They showed the Combined Arms Beta Showcase twice, failing miserably both times! To top it off they included a very nice presentation of the full game's Altis terrain. Community Intelligence Officers set to purpose to piece together all shown frames of the strategic map, arriving at a rather 'unique' version of the map.

Military sim fans rejoice! Bohemia has confirmed that Arma 3 will be heading into beta later this month, June 25 to be exact.

Additions will include new arsenals and vehicles to test and new scenarios that include a co-op and multi-team, wave-based defense scenario. Additionally, a new "Independent" faction consisting of a military native to Altis and Stratis was mentioned. You know, in case you were tired of Blufor and Opfor.

Another change is that uploading player-created missions to Steam Workshop will be directly integrated into the Arma 3 mission editor, which should streamline things a bit. This isn't necessarily going to be available during the beta, but it is a confirmed feature. Eventually. 

If June 25 is too long a wait for you, be sure to check out our recent hands-on with the alpha.
