Essentially the E3 of Europe, the annual Gamescom conference delivers big game announcements and exciting new trailers out of Cologne, Germany every summer.

Gamescom 2019 Opening Night Live will be broadcasted on Facebook, Mixer, Twitch, Twitter, and YouTube. The event will be attended by several developers where they will show off their upcoming projects. Borderlands 3 will be in attendance and Gearbox will show off end game plans, there will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare announcement from Activision, Hideo Kojima will be on hand to show off Death Stranding, Destiny 2 will detail its next expansion - Shadowkeep, EA will show off Federation Internationale de Football Association 20, Gears of War 5 will let fans peek at the campaign and Need for Speed: Heat will get a gameplay reveal. Oh, and there's much more than that coming from the likes of Epic Games, Capcom and Ubisoft. These games will be present during the Opening Night Live. The full list of the games can be seen in the tweet below.

While Geoff Keighley - of game awards fame - will be headlining a number of announcements by some major publishers, there is talk of a tease by PlayStation, who incidentally won't have their own show second year running. Some of these will definitely take place during the opening, while most others will be later on.

Gamescom and Geoff Keighley partner up to create a new show, which will go live today, August 19, 2019, at 11:00 AM PDT. If you're only going to watch one of the Gamescom conferences, this appears to be the biggest of the bunch. We also got a look at Season 4 of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which will soon gain cross-play with the PS4 version of the game, and National Basketball Association 2K20, which will feature Idris Elba in its career mode. It's also interesting to note that this will most likely be the final gamescom before we officially know about next generation consoles.
