Despite the inane skits and relentless MechWarrior 5 product promotion, yesterday's PC Gaming Show wasn't completely worthless. For starters, there was a new trailer for Big Bad Wolf's upcoming narrative RPG Vampire: The Masquarade - Swansong. The trailer introduces the Malkavian Leysha, one of the game's three protagonists, who is apparently on a mission to find her lost daughter. There's no release date for Swansong yet, but we'll be seeing more of it at the Nacon Connect event on July 6th.

In addition to trailers for previously announced titles, there were also a few world premieres during the show. One of these was for a game called Wartales, an upcoming open world turn-based tactical RPG from Shiro Games, creators of Viking strategy game Northgard. It sounds a lot like Battle Brothers, placing you in the role of the leader of a band of mercenaries in a gritty medieval setting. Additional details about Wartales are available on the game's Steam page and in PC Gamer's interview with game director Nicolas Cannasse. It's scheduled for release on Early Access later this year.

The final Codex-relevant announcement of the show was about none other than Mechajammer. That's right, Joe and Hannah were serious about that "fun news" coming later this month, which is that the game has been picked up by indie publisher Modern Wolf. It does not have a release date yet, but it has finally gotten a proper Steam page with a new public demo that will be available until June 25th, and of course a new trailer.

A few hours after the reveal, Joe and Hannah published a Mechajammer Kickstarter update with details about the latest changes they've implemented. They also got an interview at PC Gamer where they spoke about the game's mechanics and 1980s sci-fi action movie influences. Maybe it's really finally coming together.
