Today Microsoft announced its participation at Gamescom 2017 in Cologne, Germany.

The celebrations will start on Sunday, August 20th at 9:00 PM local time, which translates to noon Pacific Time. A special live show will be held with the latest news and announcements on Xbox One X.

The show will be livestreamed, so you shouldn’t worry about missing it.

A second livestream event will be held the day after, on Monday, August 21st, starting at 9 PM CEST/Noon PDT. It will focus on Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, and it will celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary. Even here, “exciting news” have been promised.

Xbox FanFest will also return to Cologne, and it will be held on Tuesday, August 22nd, with more details “coming soon.”

Of course, Microsoft will also have the usual booth at the event, and attendees will be able to get hands-on with Xbox One X. The booth will be back in hall 8 at the Koelnmesse with a “wide collection of the games coming to Xbox over the next 12 months” playable.

More livestreamed events will be hosted through the duration of Gamescom, which officially opens its doors on Tuesday, August 22nd (for press attendees only) and closes on Saturday, August 26th.

Of course, DualShockers will be on the show floor, so you can expect our reports on all the news that will come out of the event, on top of new gameplay and plenty of interviews and previews.
