PC Gamer

So. Many. Games. The release lineup from now until the end of 2015 is packed with promising titles, from The Witcher 3 and Dragon Age: Inqquisition to newly revealed games like Rainbow Six: Siege. Imagine if there was a place where you could browse through all of the games shown this year, and learn about their prospects for a PC release. Well, imagine no more, for we have done exactly that. Read on for your comprehensive guide to the games of E3 2014.

A to C

Alien Isolation

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: October

Creative Assembly hope to redeem the Alien franchise after Gearbox's Colonial Marines by rejecting action, and instead recapturing the fear and desperation of the first film. Find out if they succeeded with Evan's hands-on report .

Armored Warfare

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: TBA

That Obsidian are making a free-to-play tank MMO is strange, no doubt, but it also means Armoured Warfare has a chance to be more than just a World of Tanks clone. Built in CryEngine 3, its makers are promising destructible environments, customisable vehicles, and—as TJ discovered during his hands-on time session the other month—a viable PvE mode.

Assassin's Creed Unity

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: October 28, but Ubi's games often slip a few weeks on PC

Unity will let you freerun across the barricades of Paris in the height of the French Revolution with up to three allies in co-op. The latest annual dose of Assassin's Creed has made a significant visual leap beyond its predecessors, but took criticism during E3 week for only allowing you to play as a male assassin , a state of affairs which, as Tim noted, is more than just “unfortunate” .

Batman: Arkham Knight

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: 2015

The follow up to Batman: Arkham City feels like a known entity, given the familiarity of its combat and traversal systems, but Sam discovered unexpected depth in the addition of the transforming batmobile. In the case of the Arkham series, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, just make it bigger and prettier. As you can see from the footage, they seem to have done exactly that.

BattleCry

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: 2015

Art direction from Half-Life 2's Viktor Antonov brings a touch of class to this free-to-play team brawler from Bethesda. The developers describe it as “Team Fortress meets the brutality of 300”, so expect lots of bloody dismemberment when it's released on PC next year.

Battlefield Hardline

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: October 21

A curious cops vs. robbers take on the Battlefield formula, a team of criminals faces a team of cops, armed with RPG launchers and assault weapons, and must battle to secure loot in heist scenarios. The beta went live during the conference, but Evan and Tyler already had a chance to play, saying the whole thing felt a bit more like a mod than a new Battlefield experience.

BloodBorne

Announced for PC? Not yet

Release date: Unconfirmed (reportedly March 31, 2015)

The announcement that From Software's new Dark Souls meets Nightmare Creatures RPG will be “exclusive to PS4” hit the Dark Souls fans in the office like a stake to the heart. We've poured hundreds of hours into From's games, which did make it to PC eventually. We can only pray that the exclusivity expires, and we'll see Bloodborne on our machines. It's set in a city that resembles a glistening gothic London, and the main character wields both a hand-scythe and a shotgun to maximise his demon-killing efficiency.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: November 4

The new Call of Duty is reaching further into the future to find new gadgets to spice up the 'follow senior officer and shoot pop-up terrorists' formula. That means laser rifles, and mines that dampen the sound in a given area, allowing for sneakier stealth. In spite of these flourishes, Evan discovered a familiar experience when he saw a couple of levels demoed at the show.

Civilization: Beyond Earth

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Unannounced, but likely late this year

Firaxis get to have fun with the Civilization formula in this outing to procedurally generated alien planets. Each human faction will evolve along three philosophical tangents, the plant-loving Harmony track, the conservative human Purity path, and the post-human machine path, Supremacy. Find out more in our massive reveal interview , and Wes' interview from the E3 show floor.

Crackdown

Announced for PC? No

Release date: Unannounced

Crackdown was the superhero crime-fighting game that no one knew we wanted when it first released for the Xbox 360; so much so that it became a hit largely because each copy came with a key for the Halo 3 beta. Once gamers had our hands on it, though, its sense of scale and power became addicting. Crackdown and its sequel have always remained console exclusives, though, so don't hold your breath on seeing this one come to PC. Instead, check out Saints Row 4 for your hit of high-octane power fantasy.

D to E

Dawngate

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Unannounced, but the beta is live now

As EA's entry into the increasingly crowded MOBA space, Dawngate has always been a little self-aware. As developer Waystone Games's splashy E3 trailer begins, “if we're going to do MOBA, we don't just want to clone.” To allay fears that Dawngate will be nothing but a copy of Dota 2 or League of Legends, Waystone has been aggressively courting competitive MOBA players, asking for feedback, and making changes to accommodate popular requests in the way the the bigger games haven't been. If you love MOBAs but want to try something new, the game is now in open beta .

Dead Island 2

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Spring 2015

The schlocky open-world zombie survival game was something of a sleeper hit among fans of sun-drenched beaches and pallid, rotting skin tones. The inevitable sequel won't be set on an island, but a version of California rendered in Unreal Engine 4, and developed by Spec Ops: The Line devs, Yager.

Destiny

Announced for PC? No, but maybe one day

Release date: September 9

Destiny looks like an interesting splice of Diablo 3's adventure mode and Borderlands. Using humanity's last city as a hub location, you play one of humanity's remnant fighters, darting about a big map of the universe to take on horde challenges, raids, PvP matches and the odd story mission with friends. It benefits from Bungie's bold, colourful take on science fiction, and will be a sore loss if it never makes it to PC. Bungie COO Pete Parsons told Eurogamer that the studio are too busy building Destiny for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and Xbox One to think about other versions right now, but looks forward to “future conversations around PC.”

Devil's Third

Announced for PC? Nope. It's that rarest of things: a Wii U exclusive

Release date: 2014

Crikey. The latest actioner from Tomonobu 'Ninja Gaiden' Itagki has you playing a chain-smoking, hard-drinking, heavily-tattooed bald dude who, in between pulping enemies with a sledgehammer while stripped to the waist, also enjoys playing the drums. So, obviously the core market is Wii U, which Devil's Third is currently exclusive to. Still, much as I admire, Itagaki's way with a combo system, this looks a bit last gen right now. I suspect it's no great loss.

Doom

Announced for PC? No platforms announced yet, but surely yes

Release date: TBA

E3 gave us a short glimpse at the Cyberdemon, complete with a door noise that made thousands swoon in nostalgia. The sequel has been in development for a long, long time, but we'll finally see more at QuakeCon this year.

Dragon Age: Inquisition

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: October 7

Bioware's ambitious third entry in the Dragon Age series is one of our most anticipated games of the year. Its open world is rendered in Battlefield's Frostbite engine, and takes place during an apocalyptic struggle against forces invading from the dead lands of The Fade. Expect lots of returning characters, a little bit of fan service, 40 different endings and some big angry dragons, naturally.

Dreadnought

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: TBA, beta coming 2015

The neat bait-and-switch E3 trailer is all we have to go on when describing Dreadnought, except to say that it's being developed by Spec Ops: The Line devs, Jager, and is all about controlling vastsuper-carrier warships.

EA Sports Games

Announced for PC? Probably not

Release date: Varies

EA's numerous sports games are as best-selling as they are perennial. Titles like Madden NFL and NHL are being joined again by the newer hotness, UFC. For all their many permutations and minor improvements year over year, these games almost never make it over to PC. Seems a tragic loss, as PC gamers love sports as much as anyone, but EA moves in mysterious ways. One bright spot is FIFA 15, which is finally getting the high-powered PC release it deserves—but you can read more about that further down this list.

Eve Valkyrie

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: TBA

CCP's virtual reality game about dogfights in space is developing quietly in a futuristic laboratory somewhere. The latest E3 video shows new ships and new space stations, which are just two of the elements CCP are adding to turn Valkyrie's promising prototype into a fully featured game.

Evolve

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: October 21

Turtle Rock's first great idea eventually became Left 4 Dead. Evolve is what they did next. Four high-tech hunters must co-operate to take down a player-controlled beast. Two monsters have been shown so far, a huge lizard-ape called Goliath, and the Kraken—a floating electric octopus. Check out our hands-on to find out how Evolve's asymmetrical systems work together, and our interview with the game's art director for developer insight.

F to J

Far Cry 4

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: November 18

If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results then we'd have lost our minds by the second skinned tiger, raided outpost or gratuitous dubstep drop in Far Cry 3. Fortunately, it was an excellent open world shooter, and we can look forward to similar fare from this year's sequel, albeit set in a prettier, more mountainous environment. There's a zany new bad guy and lots of local militia, but you only really need to know two things. One: co-op. Two: you can weaponise an elephant. For more, have a read of our Far Cry 4 interview .

FIFA 15

Announced for PC? Yes, and this year's it's using the next-gen Ignite engine

Release date: September 26

Don't make that face. If you like football, and it turns out quite a lot of people do, then there won't be many more essential games on this list. The bad old days of annual gimmick-strewn iterations are long in the series' past. Instead, what remains is a fastidious, feature-packed sports sim. And the good news is that after last year's depressing decision to saddle PC gamers with a port of the current-gen version, this year we're getting the significantly upgraded Ignite engine. Our first look is here , but the tl;dr version is that, even at 50% complete, the game—which can run in 1080p at 60fps on the right rig—has never looked or felt so good. How good? Like Pirlo's beard good.

Forza Horizon 2

Announced for PC? No

Release date: September 30

Forza Horizon 2 hit E3 this week with an unbelievably sexy trailer full of rain-slick Italian race tracks, dew-dappled sports cars, and open-world environments. In a moving violation that unfortunately surprised no one, Horizon 2 will most likely not be coming to PC. There are plenty of great racing games for PC gamers' superior hardware, but we won't lie: not seeing Forza stings a little bit. Drive over to Project CARS, Next Car Game , F1 , or Dirt 3.

Grand Theft Auto 5

Announced for PC? God yes, finally

Release date: Autumn

It's been rumoured for ages , but it's finally happening. The 'next-gen' version of GTA 5 is coming to PC , giving us another expertly-crafted Rockstar open world to play with. Andy's already talked about why GTA 5 will be best on PC , and we're already planning japes in GTA 5's liberated multiplayer mode.

Grim Fandango remastered

Announced for PC? Not yet, but very probably will be

Release date: TBA

The classic adventure game about suave grim reapers in the Mexican afterlife is being remastered for a next-get console release. There was worry when the HD edition was revealed as a Sony exclusive, but Tim Schafer swiftly took to twitter to say Double Find will “talk about other platforms soon.”

Halo: The Master Collection

Announced for PC? No :(

Release date: November 11

The Master Chief collection contains versions of Halos 1, 2, 3, and 4 that have been "completely remastered for the new generation of consoles". That could have been a great opportunity to throw in some port work and get Halo back on PC so everyone can enjoy Bungie's singular take on the FPS. They're well designed games with terrific multiplayer elements that would find a happy home on our machines, as Chris argues here .

Homefront: The Revolution

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: 2015

Homefront was a perfectly forgettable first-person shooter built on a paranoid scenario that involved North Korea taking over North America. The follow-up will be an open-city affair in which players use guerilla tactics to strike at checkpoints to loosen North Korea's authoritarian grip. It sounds like an urban Far Cry 3, with a much more serious tone.

Hotline Miami 2

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Autumn 2014

Prepare for another journey into psychosis in Hotline Miami 2, a game about rushing through buildings and violently murdering hordes of goons. The second game comes with a level editor powerful enough to make Hotline Miami 3, as Sam discovered in our E3 preview .

Inside

Announced for PC? It's “debuting” on Xbox One, but expect a PC release later

Release date: Early 2015

Playdead's Limbo put you in the shoes of a young boy trapped in a nightmarish forest. Inside casts you as a young boy trapped in a nightmarish facility. You can detect a strong whiff of Limbo's bleak tone in the E3 Inside trailer, so expect another dark and disturbing adventure.

Just Dance 2015

Announced for PC?

Release date: 2015

You know you want it, really. We're lacking in full-body disco experiences in PC gaming, and while Just Dance 2015 looks like a worthy contender to fill that niche, its chances are as high as the triple-axle pirouette of a PC Gamer editor. That is to say, not very high at all. Allay your crushing disappointment with this snippet from a dance to Ellie Goulding's Burn, as performed by some sort of human-butterfly hybrid creature.

L to M

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: "Coming Soon"

Lara may be having a terrible time in Rise of the Tomb Raider, but she's back in cheerful adventuring form in Temple of Osiris. This four-player co-op puzzle platformer is the follow up to Lara Croft and the Guardian of the Light, which was an overlooked gem. The game's producer spoke to us about the new engine and the project's expanded scope at E3.

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: November

Wuh oh! Brainiac's only gone and taken over the universe by shrinking a whole bunch of planets. Batman and the Justice League must travel into the far reaches of space to stop them. So how do Traveller's Tales improve on Lego Batman 2, a super hero game so comprehensive it's roster includes the likes of Gorilla Grodd, Captain Boomerang, and Killer Moth? Easy, you take the fight to space. While the open-world structure has been jettisoned, you'll still get to explore memorable DC locations such as the Bat Cave, Watchtower, Hall of Justice, Hall of Doom, and the Lantern Worlds. There are more nods in this game than one of those dogs you put on the back seat of your car that nods a lot.

Let it Die

Announced for PC? Yes Nope

Release date: November

Gentlemen, pick your weapons. In Suda 51's hyper-violent combat horror, you can pummel foes with spiked bats, burn them with flamethrowers, chop and charge with chainsaws and carve them up real nice with hatchets. The Lollipop Chainsaw and Killer is Dead auteur goes in for a bit of darkly comic grotesquerie, so expect to laugh and wince in equal measure. Well, don't, because it's PS4-only. Boo.

LittleBigPlanet 3

Announced for PC? No

Release date: November

It's upsetting that LittleBigPlanet, the whimsical, colorful tale of the adorable sackboy, has always been a Playstation exclusive. The game is great for multiplayer, and it's bright environments would look amazing on PC, but such is life. There's basically no chance we'll see Sony's flagship franchise on our rigs anytime soon.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: TBA

A gorgeous co-op game about piloting a spaceship through a neon gauntlet of spaceborne horrors, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime has teammates rushing around their circular ship, activating weapons, deploying shields and carrying power to the engines to fend off the horrors of the deep.

Lords of the Fallen

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Fall

The Dark Souls influence is strong in this action RPG, which prides itself on its difficulty. Unlike Dark Souls, Lords of the Fallen will tell a singular story, with a single antihero protagonist named Harkin. It's also trying to focus on only three classes (warrior, rogue, cleric) and make magic a rarely-used, all-powerful trump card. Very much like Dark Souls, Harkin will fight big monsters through a medieval fantasy environment, with combat that emphasizes timing and mastery of weapon animations. And difficulty. Did we say that already?

Magicka 2

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Unannounced

Magicka and its spin-off, Wizard Wars, are always reliable for ridiculous, sometimes-buggy fun. As a robed wizard, you command eight elements that can be mixed, matched, and used to cancel each other: if you're on fire, cast water on yourself. If you cast water on something else, hitting it with lightning will do bonus damage. Combine fire and earth to create fireballs. The endless permutations and incredible experimenting power of this system leads to chaotic fun, but the first game's singleplayer campaign was stifled by difficulty spikes . We're eager to see Paradox's latest take on this chaotic magic system. Plus, the economy is rough right now for a wizard. Welcome back, guys.

Mass Effect 4

Announced for PC? Not officially, but almost certainly

Release date: Unannounced

A new Mass Effect is coming. That's about the extent of the information we got out of BioWare at this year's E3, as the project isn't anywhere near being ready to show. The next entry into the Mass Effect universe will not follow Shepard, and BioWare seems eager to launch Mass Effect: The Next Generation as a way to get past lingering fan outrage about the ending of Mass Effect 3.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

Announced for PC? Nope. But Kojima is on record as wanting to do it, so…

Release date: 1984 according to the trailer, but honestly it's anyone's guess.

It doesn't feel like new Metal Gear footage is quite the show-stopper it once was at E3, but there are still few developers who give better trailer than Hideo Kojima. And by 'better' I mean 'more mad'. Big Boss spends equal parts of this, the director's cut version, smeared in his comrades ashes and in Carrie levels of person unknown's blood. Even by the series' somewhat confused anti-war standards, it's glum stuff. It'll also likely be controversial and a true original—adored by its army of fans and written off an non-interactive wibble by its detractors. As for whether it'll actually come to PC, well, watch this space. I've interviewed Kojima several times, and he was always effusive about the platform. I suspect this might finally be the right time for the franchise.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: October 7

It's hard to know why Shadow of Mordor is a Lord of the Rings game, exactly, but the assassination missions that have you carving your way through Orc society run on an interesting network of manipulable AIs. You can use the ghost that possesses you to capture the allegiance of lieutenants and build your own insurgent army within Orc ranks. Between those power struggles, the sneaking and stabbing blends Assassin's Creed's freerunning with the Batman Arkham games' counter-heavy combat system.

Mirror's Edge 2

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: TBC

“Everything we do has to be elegant, minimalistic, and it has to have a certain attitude” says DICE senior producer Sara Jansson in the mini documentary used to show footage from the 'conceptual prototype' for the the Mirror's Edge prequel. And amen to that. Watching Faith traverse the icy white rooftops confirms the studio is staying entirely true to its vision for the series, while clearly remaining conscious of the need to, y'know, actually sell some copies this time. On that note, the combat in particular looks far more fun. She is a projectile,” says James Slavin, audio director, as Faith hoofs some techno goon in the face without breaking her sprint. “Whenever she does hit, she hits quick, fast, and hard, and then moves on.” What the footage also looks is very early, hence the conceptual moniker. We don't expect this one anytime soon.

Mortal Kombat X

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: 2015

The only game that'll let you burn a hole through a man's face so you can watch his limp tongue flapping around the frame of his skull, Mortal Kombat is bringing its unique brand of hyperviolence back to our monitors next year. Hopefully the story mode will be as convoluted and entertaining as the one featured in the Mortal Kombat Komplete edition.

N to S

Nintendo

Announced for PC? Nononono.

None of Nintendo's games will ever come to PC, it seems, to our eternal sadness. As Tyler opined this week, we could do with a bit more joy on our platform . Still, this is a list of all the games, so if you want to check out Nintendo's brace of E3 reveals, check out The Legend of Zelda , Super Smash Bros. 4 , Hyrule Warriors , Splatoon , Amiibo, , Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker , Yoshi's Woolly World , Xenoblade Chronicles X and, below, Bayonetta 2.

No Man's Sky

Announced for PC? “Coming first” to PS4, but we think a PC release is likely

Release date TBA

The Joe Danger developers put out one of the most spectacular videos of the conferences on Monday with No Man's Sky, a procedural exploration game that lets you travel seamlessly from planet surface to space and back again. The moment the space battle moves from the fleet to the planet seems like magic, and there are procedural dinosaurs. Procedural dinosaurs!

PGA Tour

Announced for PC? No, but seems probable

Release date: 2015

Formerly seen with “Tiger Woods” at the beginning of the title, PGA Tour is one of the few EA Sports games that reliably comes to PC with each release. Even better, the series is really taking advantage of newer, more powerful gaming engines to add some whackiness to golf—a sport not known for its whackiness. The E3 trailer showed off special courses that let you golf through disaster zones as everything explodes and the immaculate, manicured lawns of the greatest courses in the world.

Phantom Dust

Announced for PC No

Release date: TBA

The original Phantom Dust was released on the original Xbox back in 2005, and is being rebooted for Xbox One. With that in mind, don't expect a PC edition of this curious tactical card-based RPG which gained a cult following in its heyday.

Project CARS

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: November

Of all the very shiny racing games on this list, Project CARS might be the shiniest. From stock cars to Formula 1 racing, the game hopes to give a realistic racing simulation experience for all kinds of motor sports. The ability to customize your driver and excel at your sport of choice is also a nice bonus.

Project Spark

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Autumn 2014

Project Spark is Microsoft Studio's attempt to create a free “digital canvas” that allows players to make games and invite others in. It's unclear what the microtransactions will be at the moment, but expect asset packs and extra tools. The beta is available now for those with Windows 8 only. It's a little unfortunate—there's no faster way to consign your game to the ghettoes of PC gaming than to shackle it to Windows 8 exclusivity.

Rainbow Six Siege

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: 2015

From the ashes of Rainbow Six: Patriots—announced way back in the olden times of 2011—Rainbow Six Siege is the triumphant return of the tactical combat franchise we've loved for a decade or two. Ubisoft built Siege to be the multiplayer-focused game that Patriots could never be, and the result was one of the biggest surprises of this year's E3. If Siege looks as good in practice as it did during Evan's hands-on time during the show, we could be looking at one of the biggest releases of next year.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Announced for PC? Not yet, but seems likely

Release date: Holiday 2015

Here's something we don't see often: a video game protagonist dealing with the consequences of their actions. In the announcement trailer for Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara Croft is talking to a therapist about the grisly events of last year's Tomb Raider and working on putting them behind her. She's Lara Croft, though, so we know she doesn't start a support group and take up knitting. Eventually, she's going to raid some tombs.

Scalebound

Announced for PC? No

Release date: 2015

We don't know a whole lot about Scalebound beyond that it's being developed by Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance's Platinum Games. Though Metal Gear did come to PC, so far Scalebound is being advertised as a strictly Xbox One-exclusive title. The trailer looks little quirky with its How To Train Your Dragon-meets-Beats by Dre ascetic, but until we see some gameplay we won't know for sure what we're missing out on. If it delivers on its promise of large-scale monster fights with a dragon companion, it could be worth looking out for.

Shape Up

Announced for PC? No

Release date: Holiday 2014

Shape Up is the latest in many, many games attempting to get gamers off our ever-expanding backsides—but it is one of the first to actually look like it could be fun. It won't be coming to PC, but former PC Gamer editor-in-chief Gary Steinman appeared on stage to take part in the push-up challenge . So that's… something.

Skyforge

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: November

Have you ever drunkenly cursed the stinking heavens for divining, in their infinite 'wisdom', to make you a mere mortal on this wretched Earth, lashing fruitlessly at Hova with your barbed words that betray decades of pitiful anguish? We certainly have. That's why we're excited for SkyForge—The Ascension Atlus, no matter how stupid its title is. See, in this free-to-play fantasy MMORPG, you can become an original G (that's God, not gangster). In this universe, sci-fi tech brushes shoulders with creatures from lore and legend, and through frantic third-person combat you'll utilize both to ascend from spacetime-obeying fleshbag to omnipresent almighty. Take that, God.

Sniper Elite 3

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: June 27

Admit it, you only play Rebellion's Sniper Elite games to explode some fascists. Their third takes the fight to sweaty stretches of North Africa where you'll face the German's deadly Afrika Korps. Not only have the deliciously excessive kill shots been given a gory new sheen courtesy of improved muscle layers and circulatory systems, but vehicle interiors have been fully modelled too - a single bullet in the engine will explode that sucker, just like a real car.

Star Wars: Battlefront

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Late 2015

“Star Wars belongs to everyone,” begins the trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront—but mostly it belongs to Disney. In addition to new movies and spin-off movies in the Star Wars universe, the sale of LucasFilm to Disney means a new jolt of energy into Star Wars video games. It's been a long time since Star Wars: Battlefront II let us fight our favorite big-screen battles, so we're eagerly awaiting the new installment from DICE's LA studio.

Sunset Overdrive

Announced for PC? No

Release date: October 28

Sunset Overdrive has been getting more impressive and more irreverent since we first saw it at E3 2013. Now set for a late October release, this sadly XBox One exclusive game feels like one part Saints Row shaken with two parts Jet Grind Radio. The game repeatedly breaks the fourth wall, relying on its status as “just a video game” to get away with advanced levels of silliness.

Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix

Announced for PC? No

Release date: Released during E3

Many classic Capcom fighting game characters have been lured out of retirement by this DLC, which is, to use its full name, Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX plus Alpha. Dead Rising 3 was itself a console exclusive until we got word that the game is coming to PC this summer. As it is the nature of all DLC to be sold to all people, expect to see this particular piece of arcadey zombie-squishing goodness on PC eventually.

T to Z

Tales from the Borderlands

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Fall

The confluence of Telltale's cell-shaded storytelling and Gearbox's cell-shaded insanity was bound to be weird, and we can now confirm: Tales from the Borderlands is pretty bizarre. The “pre-sequel” to the Borderlands universe is being told in Telltale's signature style, including dialog choice trees and quick-time events sprinkled throughout. Wes wasn't totally sold on the humor he saw during his demo , but we'll all get a chance to see what we think when the first episode of five lands this fall.

The Crew

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: Fall

Ubisoft's ambitious MMO-ified take on realistic racing sims certainly has no shortage of flair. The E3 trailer showed timelapsed road trips cutting through snowy mountains, tropical everglades, and sparse Utah deserts; in theory, the entire continental United States will be open to exploration. The Crew will be heavily dependant on multiplayer, and it was originally supposed to be released last year. We're hoping that the extra year of development has given the game time to take shape, and we're looking forward to logging on this fall.

The Division

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: 2015

We've been looking forward to The Division (also known as Tom Clancy's The Division) since it made waves at last year's E3. Since then it's been delayed to 2015 and we got confirmation that it will be coming to PC where it belongs. The ambitious new third-person shooter MMO got a haunting new story trailer and a lot of new gameplay snippets shown off this week. The Division remains one of our most highly anticipated games, whenever we finally get to see it.

The Last of Us

Announced for PC? No

Release date: July 30

It's easy to forget amidst the 'no girls allowed' controversy currently surrounding Assassin's Creed Unity that some games do star not-men (otherwise known as women). Occasionally, as in Ellie from The Last of Us's case, they're even well-written! The Last of Us Remastered will bump up the framerate and give the visuals a spruce. Not that they needed it. This beautifully executed survival horror is arguably the PS3's greatest game. What a shame then there's virtually no chance seeing its definitive version on PC. Sorry to build you up like that.

The Order: 1866

Released for PC? No

Release date: February 20 2015

Various demonic nasties are tearing up 19th century London. As a night of The Order, you use advanced gadgets to beat back the menace in what looks at first glance to be a rote cover shooter. It's been announced for Playstation 4 at the moment, with little prospect of a PC release.

The Sims 4

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: September 2

The Sims have always been some of the best-selling games in the world, but the latest entry in the series is adding something new: controllable personalities. You'll be able to select character traits like ambition, temper, or insanity for your sims, which makes the whole thing sound a bit...RPGish. We'll see how well the combination works when the Sims 4 comes out in September.

The Witcher 3

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: February 24, 2015

The Witcher 3 has had our attention for what feels like forever, but this open-world, gorgeous version of the Witcher's gritty universe is not only confirmed to be coming out on PC, it's going to make all but the strongest rigs sit down and weep . CD Projekt Red is working to make this game into something special; we're just along for the ride.

Uncharted 4

Announced for PC? No

Release date: TBA

Naughty Dog took a break from Drake with the gritty survival horror game, The Last Of Us, which demonstrated an unexpected talent for pathos. Despite that being a massive success, they're returning to Uncharted to bid farewell to their Indiana Jones-a-like with a few final wisecracks, but not on PC. Naughty Dog have always been console developers, and that's set to continue. More's the pity.

Unnamed Criterion Game

Announced for PC? Not confirmed, but Criterion usually releases to PC

Release date: It doesn't even have a name yet

Criterion pulled a big old tease on everyone at this year's E3, showing off a game without a name, release date, or more than a couple of seconds of gameplay footage. Here's what we do know: the developer behind the most recent Need For Speed games is moving beyond cars to ATVs, helicopters, jet skis, wingsuits, parachutes, and probably rocket ships for all we know. The game will be set in a strictly first-person viewpoint inspired by GoPro-style action footage. We're eager to hear more details about the game as development continues, but we'll be waiting for a while.

Valiant Hearts

Announced for PC? Yes

Release date: June 25

We're glad to see Valiant Hearts get a strong showing at this year's E3, especially because we don't have to wait very long to get our hands on it. Releasing in just a couple of weeks, Valiant Hearts was a welcome break from the first-person mayhem of most of the games on this list. Played in a sidescrolling, cell-shaded art style, this game is aiming to tell a more emotional story set during World War I. Plus, it has a dog in it.
