E3 2015 is certainly shaping up to be the biggest yet, as a third new press conference has been revealed dedicating itself to the PC as a gaming platform.

AMD and PC Gamer are joining together to present the PC Gaming Show which takes place on June 16 at 5PM PDT, at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles. It will also be streamed live on Twitch.

It will feature appearances by Dean Hall (creator of DayZ), Cliff Bleszinski (creator of Gears of War), and developers from Blizzard, Bohemia Interactive, Cloud Imperium Games, Tripwire Interactive, Square Enix, Obsidian, Paradox, Devolver Digital and the Humble Bundlers, with more to be announced.

AMD Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Computing and Graphics Matt Skynner said: "The PC Gaming Show embodies the spirit of innovation, openness and community that's part of our DNA-delivered by gamers, for gamers. The time is right for a PC-focused event in the week of E3 and we're honored to be part of bringing the industry together."

Tim Clark, global editor-in-chief at PC Gamer added: "We're living in a golden age of PC gaming, but unlike other platforms the PC has no format holder, no marketing department, and - until now - no event during E3 week purely devoted to it. We think a show like this, which brings together people from every corner of PC gaming to celebrate the exciting things happening, is long overdue."

The PC Gaming show joins the lineup regular conferences from Microsoft, Sony, Ubisoft, and EA as well as other conference newcomers Bethesda and Square Enix.
