All the news expected at Gamescom 2022

After two years in virtual mode, from tomorrow Wednesday 24 August the Gamescom 2022 in Cologne will reopen its doors to the public as well. The fair dedicated to the world of video games - which will go on until August 28 - will host numerous events that will embrace all the most popular platforms with game announcements, trailers and previews, even if from the anticipations of the eve it does not seem there will be room for sensational news. The preview on 23 August will see the return to the stage of Geoff Keighley, creator and host of The Game Awards, with a show that will also be staged live on Twitch, YouTube and Twitter at 20.00 Italian time.

More than 500 exhibitors are expected at the Cologne fair organized at Koelnmesse, including Xbox, Ubisoft, Warner Bros. Games, Sega Europe, 2K, 505 Games, Bandai Namco, Funcom, Koch Media, Thq Nordic and Lego. The absences, however, are noted: Sony with Playstation and Nintendo in the front row, but also large studios such as Activision Blizzard and Take-Two. As anticipated, the dates of the fair are 24-28 August, while today, 23 August, will be dedicated to press previews and the opening event. Visitors can access the fair at the price of 9 euros for the afternoon ticket (valid from 4 pm onwards) and from 25 euros for the day ticket.

There are three official events scheduled at Gamescom 2022:

August 23, 8 pm - The aforementioned Opening Night Live with Geoff Keighley opens the fair with 30 featured games, including Sonic Frontiers with a new trailer, new images of the eagerly awaited Return to Monkey Island and a gameplay video of Goat Simulator 3. Likely, the event will also be the one with the most news, with the rest of the congress expected to be dedicated to minor announcements. August 24, 8 pm - Simultaneously with the first event there will also be the Future Games Show Gamescom Edition which will focus in particular on independent titles and productions of medium-sized houses. The novelty already confirmed is the interactive survival horror video game The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me, while the rest is to be discovered. August 25, from 14 to 20 - Long and full Xbox event that certainly will not lack surprises, even if probably confined to secondary titles: most of the main games at the center of the event are in fact already known, from Microsoft Flight Simulator in Sea of ​​Thieves, passing through Minecraft Legends and Age of Empires IV. In reality, Gamescom 2002 also includes a fourth rather relevant event: we are talking about the Awesome Indies Show, expected on August 26th at 5.30 pm and organized by Ign with other indie titles developed by studios such as Team17, Thunderful and Raw Fury. For those who want to better prepare for this year's edition, here you will find all the news presented at Gamescom in 2021.
