Gamescom 2020 Online: Dates, Schedule, Games, Livestream And Everything We Know

Gamescom is here! Here is everything you need to know regarding Europe's biggest game festival.

E3 2020 might have been cancelled in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, but there's still plenty to look forward to in 2020 – including Gamescom.

The huge event won't be taking place physically, but fans will be able to tune in to an online version to check out some fresh new announcements and demos.

With so many exciting games on the horizon, Gamescon is sure to be an event to remember.

A number of games that were set to release have been pushed back due to the pandemic.

The event is an opportunity to reinvigorate fans and get them excited despite the disappointment of delays.

Here's everything we know about the show so far.

When is Gamescom 2020?

Gamescom 2020's digital-only event will kick off on August 27 with an opening live stream from Geoff Keighley, host of the Game Awards.

The event will run until August 30, with a variety of streams to tune into. Check out the schedule below.

Gamescom will still be a great place to catch new releases before launch

How Can You Watch Gamescom 2020 Online?

No platforms have been confirmed yet, but there's a strong chance it'll be available on Twitch, YouTube, and potentially Mixer too.

 

Which Games Will We See?

In truth, we have no idea. The event is taking place after the likes of EA Play and Ubisoft Forward but could be a great chance for publishers to show more of their big fall releases like Assassin's Creed.

Being a European event, there's a strong possibility we'll see FIFA 21 in some shape, too, and with new consoles on the horizon, it could be the last big showcase for Microsoft and Sony to argue their case for your hard-earned cash.

We'll update this page as we hear more, so be sure to check back.
