Watch Microsoft’s Gamescom conference right here

1 min read


Gamescom! It’s the biggest consumer game expo on this lovely planet of ours, made even better by being hosted in a city that has a great, exceptionally drinkable summer beer on tap just about everywhere. It’s an odd one this year, closer in proximity to E3 than it has ever been – so Sony’s largely giving this one a miss. All eyes then on Microsoft, who’ve promised to show of a bunch of things they didn’t parade at E3.

That includes the likes of Crackdown, Platinum Game’s Scalebound and a bigger look at Remedy’s Quantum Break. We’ll probably also see a bit of Rise of the Tomb Raider and Halo 5: Guardians, and hopefully more of Gears of War 4. But what else?

I suspect there’ll be a surprise or two. It’s nearly time for Gamescom to kick of properly, with Microsoft’s conference at 4PM local time – and you’ll be able to watch it right here. What are you expecting from Microsoft? What do you want to see hitting the Xbox One?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
