With Gamescom quickly approaching, publishers are beginning to reveal just what attendees and those watching from home can expect to see from them at the show. Today, Microsoft has unveiled just what fans will see from them at Germany.
For starters, Microsoft announced that there will be a special edition of Inside Xbox taking place live from Gamescom next month. This broadcast will air on Tuesday, August 21, at 10:30 AM EST and will bring with it news on new Xbox One bundles, new accessories, and more information on upcoming releases. A few “surprises” have also been teased for this event, so you won’t want to miss it.
For those in attendance at Gamescom, it was also announced that Xbox FanFest will be returning and will take place on the Rhein River. This event will take place on August 23 with more information on tickets being revealed soon.
Lastly, Microsoft announced a handful of games that will be present on the show floor at their booth space. Noteworthy upcoming releases like Forza Horizon 4, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Ori and the Will of the Wisps are some of the standout titles that have been announced for play so far with State of Decay 2’s all-new game mode also being available to try out before its release in September. Microsoft has said that there will be 25 games in total available to demo at their booth.
All of this plus the debut of the Xbox Gear Shop will be coming with Microsoft to Germany. If you’re going to be attending Gamescom for yourself, you can find the Xbox booth located in Hall 8 of the Koelnmesse.
