Gamescom 2020

E3 might not have gone ahead this year, but in its place, there has been plenty of online events. We've had EA Play, Ubisoft Forward, a Nintendo Direct Mini, and many other broadcasts showcasing various upcoming games.

The next big event on the horizon is this year's all-digital Gamescom show. As you might recall, it starts on 27th August (that's next week) and will feature games from all sorts of publishers.

Geoff Keighley - the host of the opening ceremony - has now taken to Twitter to share the following video. He says the opening show will be a two-hour showcase, featuring over 20 games with brand new content - ranging from "next-gen stuff" to "indie stuff", to the "biggest games in the world". He'll start revealing more about it tomorrow.

As already mentioned, there are more than 80 partners sharing announcements across three packed days.

Although Nintendo won't be attending, some of the bigger partners that will be making an appearance include Activision Blizzard, Bandai Namco, Bethesda, Electronic Arts, Sega Europe, Ubisoft and team Xbox. Some other notable companies you can expect to see include Bossa Studios, Curve Digital, Dotemu, Merge Games and Strictly Limited Games.
