What's getting announced at Gamescom Opening Night Live?
As usual, Geoff Keighley has shared a list of confirmed games participating in the show including:
- Alan Wake 2
- Assassin’s Creed Mirage
- Black Myth Wukong
- Call of Duty: MW3
- Crimson Desert
- Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty
- Lords of the Fallen
- Sonic Superstars
- Zenless Zone Zero
- Tekken 8
We're quite close to the launch dates for Alan Wake 2 and AC: Mirage, both coming in October, so it's likely we'll see a new gameplay trailer for each. Zenless Zone Zero is the next game in the works from Hoyoverse now that Honkai Star Rail is well on track. Then there's that upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 DLC everyone's been waiting for as well. For me, Crimson Desert is the game I'm excited to see on the list. I was hoping we'd see the singleplayer RPG by Black Desert's developers last summer, so I'm quite interested to see where it's at years after the initial announcement.
We can expect all those, plus plenty more games to get some spotlight during the show on Tuesday.
