Gamescom opening livestream promises night of world premieres

Activision! Bungie! EA! Epic! Capcom! Stadia.

Geoff "Game Awards" Keighley will host an evening of "world premiere content and announcements" from more than 15 publishers on the eve of Gamescom.

The previously-announced Gamescom Opening Night Live show now has an official start time and line-up of new reveals. It'll all kick off at 7pm UK time on Monday, 19th August.

Publishers signed up to show off some form of new thing include: 2K, Activision, Bandai Namco, Bungie, Capcom, EA, Epic, Google Stadia, Koch/Deep Silver and Private Division.

Sega, Square Enix, Sony, THQ, Ubisoft and Xbox will also reveal things.

Finally, Keighley has also invited his friend Hideo Kojima along to show some new Death Stranding gameplay.

The only notable omission is Nintendo - perhaps we're due for a dedicated Gamescom Direct?

This would be as good a time as any for EA to show off its new Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare and Need for Speed games due out this year. Microsoft, meanwhile, has said it will use Gamescom to show off Minecraft Dungeons and Gears 5's Horde mode.

Gamescom Opening Night Live will broadcast in all the usual places, including YouTube, Twitch and Mixer. And, as usual, we'll be covering it live on Eurogamer.
