Activision Reveals Gamescom Lineup

Activison will be bringing its latest wares to Gamescom, which takes place in Cologne, Germany from the 21st to the 26th of August.

Probably the biggest game is Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Ghosts, which will be playable on the show floor. This is the first time that the multiplayer modes for the new game will be playable by the public, making the game’s appearance at the show very important indeed.

Activision will be streaming live from the event on Wednesday 21st August from 18:00 CET, in a special Broadcast featuring Major Nelson from Xbox. They will be streaming live Call of Duty: Ghosts gameplay from among some of the best pro players across Europe, interviews with the developers from Infinity Ward, and key details into some of the new features coming to Call of Duty this November.

Activision will also be showing Bungie’s Destiny at the show. Destiny is a persistent-world online shooter, and Activision is pulling out all the stops for its Gamescom presence. The demo-theatre will be the biggest ever built in Gamescom history – 72ft in length, 43ft wide, and the height of a 3-storey house at 26ft high and with 192 seats and will showcase a seven-player live-demo set in Old Russia, bringing the buzz and experience from E3 straight to German fans for the first time.

Activision will be bringing Skylanders: Swap Force and the console version of Angry Birds: Star Wars along as well. We’ll be heading to Gamescom and we’ll giving readers the chance to have their questions answered – you can click here for more information.
