Hosts Sean "Day" Plott and Frankie Ward returned for another blast of never-before-seen trailers, announcements, and developer interviews at the 2019 PC Gaming Show, and if you missed it, you can rewatch the entire show above.
If you'd rather a more piecemeal approach, we've embedded every trailer and developer interview below.
Scroll down for some big reveals, including the Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 gameplay reveal trailer, the announcements of Chivalry 2 and Zombie Army 4: Dead War, a new Griftlands trailer that shows off card-based combat (and dialogue?), and conversations with the developers behind Borderlands 3 and Baldur's Gate 3.
Evil Genius 2
To kick the show off, PC Gaming Show sponsor Rebellion gave us our very first look at Evil Genius 2. There's no gameplay, but it sets a fun tone for the game.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2
PC Gaming Show sponsor Epic Games then brought Hardsuit Labs to the stage to show off the first gameplay trailer of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2.
Cara Ellison and Brian Mitsoda talked about the emotional side of vampires on stage. That is to say, vampires don't feel emotions the same way humans do, though human blood has emotional qualities to it.
"Vampires can see the emotional resonance of beings, like fear or desire, and they can feed on those people to feel the same thing," said Ellison. She also talked about how new vampires adjust to unlife by "going through vampire puberty."
For more on what that means, watch the full interview below.
A new colony management game from Chucklefish, Starmancer is aiming for a lot of complexity—it was inspired by Dwarf Fortress. Chris has more details here.
Show sponsor Tripwire Interactive announced Chivalry 2 with the first ever trailer, which you can watch above.
After the trailer, Tripwire president John Gibson and Torn Banner Studios CEO Steve Piggott came to the stage to discuss what's next for the medieval warfare series.
"You're not just going and standing in an area and a bar fills up," said Gibson about the flagship Team Objective game mode. "You're burning houses, killing peasants."
"It's really about letting the player experience every iconic moment of the era," added Piggott.

Midnight Ghost Hunt
Game director Sam Malone showed off his "multiplayer ghost hunting hide-and-seek game" at the show, explaining how the 4v4 battles will play out. Ghosts hide as props in the world and attempt to avoid detection—though they can fight back—while the hunters attempt to vacuum up their ecto-stuff. If the ghosts survive until midnight, they go on the offensive. Find out more in the interview below:
Unexplored 2 trailer
This moody, gorgeous roguelike tasks you with crossing a huge map to destroy a staff. Can you make it? Probably not on the first try. Die, and you come back as a descendant of yourself. The consequences of your previous actions will still be at play.
Samsung CRG5 monitors
Show sponsor Samsung stopped by to announce a series of new 240Hz, G-sync compatible curved monitors.
Mutant Year Zero: Seed of Evil, Conan Unconquered, Moons of Madness
Another show sponsor, Funcom gave us a preview of its upcoming games, and then announced that something once presumed to be a joke is actually real...
Conan Chop Chop
It turns out that Conan Chop Chop isn't an April Fool's joke after all. Funcom showed off the second trailer for the game, but this one confirms it's real, and it's "the most realistic stick figure game ever to feature Conan the Barbarian," says the publisher.
Last Oasis is a survival MMO where no one has wheels. Instead, they have weird walking machines, which makes for some strange, intense battles in the trailer above. Last Oasis is coming to Early Access this summer.

Show sponsor Rebellion, creator of the Sniper Elite series, brought along a slick trailer for Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Stick to the end for a cameo from Zombie Hitler. You're probably gonna (re)kill him.
Griftlands is a card-based RPG now? That's exciting. We've been interested in Klei's next RPG since it was revealed at the PC Gaming Show two years ago, and it looks like it has come a long way (and changed a lot) since then.
Remnant: From the Ashes
Remnant: From the Ashes is a co-op shooter that takes inspiration from the Souls games, with giant, horrible bosses to knock down as you clean up the apocalypse. Show sponsor Perfect World Entertainment stopped by to show off the new story trailer above, and talk about the procedural generation.
Remnant: From the Ashes is out pretty soon: it's coming on August 20.
Show sponsor Frontier brought along a Planet Zoo trailer and the release date: November 5. Liesa Bauwens and Piers Jackson also came to the stage to tell us more about how we'll be managing our animal parks.

Show sponsor Epic Games brought legendary designer Yu Suzuki to the stage to show us a new trailer for Shenmue 3. And, if you couldn't have guessed from that first sentence, reveal that it will be an Epic Store exclusive on PC.
Vermintide 2 Versus
Verminite 2 is getting a PvP mode in which players can become the vermin. It works pretty simply: "Each game includes one round playing as the enemies, and one playing as the heroes," said Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund in a pre-show interview with PC Gamer. "In the end the winner is the hero team that progressed the furthest through the mission."

Baldur's Gate 3
While we didn't get new footage (a trailer was revealed at the Stadia event last week), Larian CEO Swen Vincke closed out the show by giving us some insight into how the developer is adapting the D&D 5e rules for a videogame.
"Let's say we get into a fight because you ask a nasty question, and I don't want to answer it," Vincke said. "I take the chair over there, put it on fire, and smash it over your head. These are things that we have to put systems into the game for to do it, which aren't necessarily going to be described in the book."
