First up in a busy day of conferences (on a Saturday, no less!) is three-day event Guerrilla Collective. Not to be confused with the Sony first-party studio of a similar name, this is an indie showcase from a number of acclaimed developers, including the likes of 11 Bit Studios (Frostpunk), Coffee Stain Studios (Satisfactory), Larian Studios (Baldur's Gate 3), Raw Fury, Rebellion, Versus Evil (The Banner Saga) and many more.
Specifics beyond that aren't mentioned, but expect updates on existing games and some new reveals as part of the show. There are additional streams to catch on the Sunday and Monday, too, both starting at the above times.
Paradox has a few big releases coming up - Crusader Kings 3 (which has been given a September release date), Empire of Sin and Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 among them - so expect new looks at these, as well as some possible release dates. Though there's the possibility of some additional surprises, with a 30 minute runtime, set your expectations accordingly.

“With this year’s PC Gaming Show, we still wanted to deliver on the spectacle and level of production that gamers expect from gaming press conferences,” says PC Gamer global editor-in-chief Evan Lahti in a press release. “We’re not going to just show people a two-hour Zoom call with some video games in it. We want this to be a unique and fun moment for PC gaming.”
Newcomer Future Games Show follows on from the PC Gaming Show with a much broader remit, teased to feature "exclusive trailers, announcements, and deep dives on existing AAA and indie games, focusing on current (and next-gen) consoles, mobile and streaming platforms". Participants have also yet to be revealed, but since it's produced by Future Publishing (who also run the PC Gaming Show) it should be an event worth staying up for.
You can expect more than 30 exclusive game showcases, trailers, and announcements from both indie and AAA developers, all hosted by Uncharted leading couple Nolan North and Emily Rose.
