Konami announced today its line-up for Gamescom 2017, that will be held next month in Cologne, Germany.

Metal Gear Survive, the new spin-off of the Metal Gear series, will be playable at the booth (hall 5.2/A030/B031). Attendees will be able to try out the new co-op mode that supports up to four players.

PES 2018 will also be available for testing as well, giving attendees a glimpse on the new REAL Capture system, which will grant the game realistic lighting during both day and evening matches.

For those who prefer collectible card games, the publisher will also have a large area dedicated to Yu-Gi- Oh! game, with tournaments and demonstration duels.

PES 2018 will launch on September 14th, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 and PC (promising a much improved Steam version this time around), while Metal Gear Survive will come in early 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Gamescom will be held in Cologne, Germany, from August 22nd to August 26th, with a new Tuesday-Saturday window that is really messing up my schedule. Keep in mind that Tuesday will be open to media and business attendees only.

Of course, DualShockers will be on the show floor, and hopefully we’ll manage to get you some new info on the games.
