original message (August 16)
This year’s gamescom is fast approaching. It can be assumed that during it we will learn a lot of interesting things about emerging and previously unknown productions. Game journalist Geoff Keighley decided to share details about the event.
Less ads, more updates
In an interview with the site VGC Jeff Kelly noted that this year’s show was the inaugural party – Opening Night Live – Games that have already been announced will be dominated by updateswhich is set to debut in 12 months.
It will be a great event where we will get to know more about the announced games such as Alan Wake 2 whether The Black Legend: Wukong. This year, ONL will focus less on announcing new releases and more on updates on projects that have already been announced.
Opening Night Live is a show that will take place before gamescom. Last year it lasted more than two hours. According to Keighley, ONL is a unique challenge compared to other annual events like The Game Awards or Summer Game Fest – not only because of its European location, but also because of its connections with partners who showcase at gamescom itself.
First, our Los Angeles-based team faces the logistical challenges of hosting a large-scale show in Cologne, Germany. Fortunately, gamescom and Kolnemesse work great together. Another challenge and opportunity is that the event is directly related to the partners and games that will be presented at gamescom. We’re always trying to find ways to create synergy between what’s happening on stage and within ONL.
Who will be attending Gamescom 2023
According to his profile at Twitter Leaker and informant Okami Games, which deals with news from the gaming world, will present ONL games such as Alan Wake 2, Assassins Creed: Mirage, Black Myth: Wu Kong, Mortal Kombat 1 or Fort Solis. In turn, at gamescom itself you will be able to learn more about Starfield, Forza Motorsport, Stalker 2 and many others. Microsoft will address the topics of these games.
We also know that the playable version of the Specter of Freedom DLC for Cyberpunk 2077 will be introduced at the show.
