Very few days have now passed since the opening of the Cologne Trade Fair: to make up for the wait, let’s take stock of the situation on the games that will be protagonists during Gamescom 2019.
The day of Monday 19 August will prove to be particularly interesting: in fact, during the day a special episode of Inside Xbox will take place, of which Microsoft has already announced the official lineup and from which we can expect a large number of news related to the House of Redmond. To follow, an appointment with a new Stadia Connect, expected at 7.00 pm and during which Google will present new details about Google Stadia.
We then move on to the Opening Night Live, the big opening show presented by Geoff Keighley, already a host of The Game Awards. We know that over fifteen publishers will take part in the event, intending to offer the public new content and announcements. Some software houses have also already formalized part of their plans for the show:
- Kojima Productions confirmed the presence of Death Stranding ;
- The Coalition will present the Gears 5 Campaign mode ;
- Expected a special announcement for COD: Modern Warfare and the presentation of the first Disintegration gameplay ;
- Fresh from the announcement, Need for Speed: Heat will show itself in action during the show;
- Incoming gameplay also for Predator: Hunting Grounds ;
We can also expect other protagonists for the event, which has recently seen the publication of a dedicated trailer.
Many players in the videogame industry have also already presented the titles that will be featured on the show floor of the Cologne Fair. For example, the Sony lineup and the Square Enix lineup have been announced. Even Nintendo has offered details about their presence at the Cologne Trade Fair, as well as Bandai Namco. Among those who anticipated their presence at the fair also Marvelous. We also know that Project Red CD will also participate in the fair, with Cyberpunk 2077 present at Gamescom.
In short, a lot of meat on the fire: what do you expect the most?
