According to its organiser, more than 30 games will appear during the event, including new game reveals and updates on “the most anticipated” upcoming titles.
“We’re delighted to produce another Gamescom: Opening Night Live, which will present more than 30 games from across the industry this year,” said event host and producer Geoff Keighley in a prepared statement.
“The community can look forward to new game reveals, updates on the most anticipated games and other surprises with guests on stage and much more – all live streamed for fans around the world.”
This year, for the first time, Keighley will be joined by a co-host from Germany, with GameStar’s Natascha Becker sharing the stage.
Gamescom 2021 is an all-digital event for the second year running after its organisers abandoned plans to stage a hybrid show combining digital elements with on-site events, due to restrictions around the Covid-19 pandemic.
