It’s Gamescom time again and the grand Opening Night Live Showcase starts today at 2:00pm ET. It’s all on YouTube, Twitch and streamed Twitter, and it’s supposed to take a full two hours. Video game king Geoff Keighley will be hosting the show, just as he does the Game Awards and Summer Game Fest, and he’s already teased a handful of titles that will be coming out.
Tonight’s show is set to feature new footage and news about Hogwarts legacy, The Callisto Protocol, Gotham Knights, high in lifeborder areas, Sonic Frontiers and more games. Many of these titles are expected to release late this year or early next year, so expect plenty of gameplay hype.
Gamescom takes place from August 24th to 28th in Cologne, Germany. The entire festival features around 1,100 exhibitors from around the world, and the Indie Arena is particularly packed this year. We’ll have all the news from ONL and the broader show this week so stay tuned.
For the remainder of 2022, the Game Awards will take place on December 8th and the show will feature a new category for “Best Adaptation”.
