Not only will the above games make an appearance at the event they will be playable, too. Joining those games happens to be additional news and announcements that Activision will share with attendees.
Moreover, a game that caught the attention of folks back at E3 2018 comes “a very special treat,” which is a playable build of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The new game from FromSoftware will be playable for the first time on the show floor. You can read more about its appearance at said event over on blog.activision.com or look at other games to appear at Gamescom 2018 here:
SEKIRO: SHADOWS DIE TWICE
“Playable at the Activision B2C booth in Hall 7.1: FromSoftware, the creators of Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series, is the powerhouse developer behind Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. In this upcoming game, you play as a “one-armed wolf” – a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death. Which means it is up to you to take revenge, restore your honor, and kill ingeniously.”
CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 4
“Playable on PC at the ASUS B2C booth in Hall 7.1: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Multiplayer raises the bar, delivering Treyarch’s most thrilling, grounded Black Ops combat experience yet with a focus on tactical gameplay and player choice. The game offers a new level of online action across a variety of new weaponry, maps and modes. Hot on the heels of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Multiplayer Beta, attendees will be able to get more hands-on time at the show and will also get to experience a brand-new map. We’ll have a full write up for you once we get our boots on the ground and spend some time getting our game on with fellow fans.”
DESTINY 2: FORSAKEN
Playable at the Activision B2C booth in Hall 7.1: The first major expansion for Destiny 2 is Forsaken, and as part of that expansion Bungie introduces a new hybrid mode – Gambit. This brand-new mode merges PvP and PvE into an epic battle as players team up to fight enemies, collect motes, bank those motes to earn blockers, and to invade the opposing team’s arena and wreak havoc.
SPYRO REIGNITED TRILOGY
“Playable in the Xbox booth in Hall 8.1: The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be heading into Germany, and he’s ready to heat things up! With a beautiful game lovingly brought back to life by the developers at Toys For Bob, a remastered soundtrack based on Stewart Copeland’s original classic, and voice acting by the legendary Tom Kenny, Spyro packs quite a punch. Fans at Gamescom will be able to experience new gameplay from the trilogy when they get their hands on Spyro: Year of the Dragon for the first time, and we can’t wait to see what they think!”
Taking a look back at Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, in June of this year Hidetaka Miyazaki said that Sekiro is an action-adventure game without stats or classes, that there are different weapons and abilities to master, and that the game can be very hard if you rush through it, but if you take your time and learn the enemies/world the game can be rewarding.
