PC Gaming Show at E3 2017: BattleTech Campaign Preview

This year's E3 press conferences haven't been very relevant to the Codex compared to previous ones. With their RPG franchises on hiatus, BioWare are now focused on Anthem, their new Destiny clone. Despite rumors to the contrary, Bethesda also had no RPGs to announce, and the most interesting thing their conference had to offer was Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, an unexpected Dishonored 2 standalone expansion. Today's PC Gaming Show was as dull and poorly paced as ever, but at least it had some actual Codexian games on display, chief among them Harebrained Schemes' BattleTech. This year, both Jordan Weisman and Mitch Gitelman showed up to offer an early glimpse at the game's single player campaign, including the Argo DropShip that will serve as the player's base of operations. The full segment can be viewed here. PC Gamer have helpfully split out the two gameplay bits:

There was more to see at the PC Gaming Show, including the announcement of Griftlands, a fun-looking turn-based RPG from hotshot indie developer Klei Entertainment, and the obligatory annual appearance by Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord. For all you strategyheads, there was also a new XCOM 2 expansion pack called XCOM 2: War of the Chosen and Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, an HD rerelease of the original. On the other hand, despite their known presence at E3, there was nothing from Obsidian or inXile. Whatever they have to show, they'll be doing it independently.
