This year’s Gamescom event looks to be the biggest ever, with over 635 exhibitors from 40 countries joining the show. Attendees will be able to play the latest upcoming games and consoles from the big 3 – Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft – while many 3rd party companies will be in attendance as well, including Konami, SEGA, Ubisoft and many more. Gamescom will be taking place in Cologne, Germany from 21st to 25th August.
The next generation of consoles will also be playable, with the Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One on the showfloor.
The exhibitors will have more space to play with as well, and with a 5% increase in participation it looks to be growing ever closer to becoming Europe’s answer to E3. More than 275,000 visitors from over 80 countries are expected to attend, including some of our very own here at VGU.
We will be covering the event with previews, news, and interviews with some of the exhibitors.
