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?
