Gamescom 2018 - Early Access Video

Gamescom 2018 - Early Access Video

Gamescom is one of the largest entertainment events on the planet, and with its 10th anniversary this year, it promises to be the biggest one yet. A lot of work goes into setting up such a big event, as we get an exclusive look at imposing billboards, crazy PC mods and even life-size replicas of tanks and warships.
Approaching the North entrance in Cologne, Germany, fans can already see a taste of what’s to come, from showcases on various upcoming games including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Fallout 76 to the support of Netgear, Cooler Master and a variety of other tech companies.
Interactivity is the most important aspect of Gamescom, granting attendees the ability to play about with brand new technology and games. EA seems to have one of the largest stands, kitted out with almost 200 places to play FIFA 19, while Nintendo will be focusing on its Switch and the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Techland will also be debuting a hands-on with its battle royale adaptation of Dying Light: Bad Blood, and Activision has paired up with ASUS Republic of Gamers to showcase the detail in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Looking outside of the screens for a moment, event-goers will notice Wargaming’s life-size tank and warship, built around its World of Tanks and World of Warships line of tactical shooters. Epic Games will also be doing something with Fortnite, with its own area constructed to echo the immensely popular battle royale game. Fans of the title will be able to participate in competitions, as well as meeting Fortnite’s celebrity personalities.
