This year’s Gamescom saw Geoff Keighley of The Game Awards fame kicking off the Cologne fair with a two-hour lengthy occasion created to showcase some of the greatest and most exciting titles about.
Arguably the most exciting new project shown off in Germany was Disintegration from 30-powerful Seattle-primarily based V1 Interactive. This is a completely-not-Halo tactical vehicular sci-fi shooter title from, er, the creator of Halo, Marcus Lehto’s new studio starring some guy in metal armour. That is becoming published by Take-Two’s Private Division label.
There was also Death Stranding – as touted by Hideo Kojima’s BFF Geoff Keighley – for the duration of which the Metal Gear creator showed off two new characters and some true short gameplay.
Yager of Spec Ops: The Line fame also took to the stage displaying off its brand new totally free-to-play PvPvE shooter The Cycle. That is out now by way of the Epic Games Shop with the studio handling publishing duties itself.
“We’re taking pretty a lot of danger with The Cycle to be truthful,” executive producer Jonathan Lindsay stated on stage.
“It is pretty revolutionary. That is not actually for every person. Just after 20 years, we had to just go for it at some point.”
Going back to Private Division for a second, the enterprise is also publishing a sequel to cult hit Kerbal Space Plan with the imaginatively-named Kerbal Space Plan two, full with epic music by way of M83’s Outro.
Rod Fergusson from The Coalition – not The Collective, Geoffrey! – introducing a new trailer for Gears five, this time swapping out the trippy Billie Eilish from the advertising and marketing we saw at E3 in favour of, er, Nine Inch Nail’s Head Like a Hole.
