We’re closing in on August and that means another Gamescom is coming up! I’m pleased to say that this year, I will be attending. German beer and games, what can’t you love about this situation?
Unlike last year, when Funcom was showcasing The Secret World, I haven’t really seen anyone in the line-up that I specifically want to see. I know Blizzard will be there to showcase their newest expansion of WOW (pandas, really?), Sony will be there with a new PS3, and I think I saw somewhere Gameforge will be there with Aion. However, there will be some major players in the video gaming industry absent at the 2012 Gamescom.
Microsoft announced they’re skipping to focus on smaller promotion. Rockstar Games won’t be there with the latest and greatest shoot em’ up gangster game Grand Theft Auto V (even though GTA5 made it into the Gamecom trailer), and I think Nintendo is skipping.
I’m rather hoping Codemasters will be there with with their newest racing game, F1 Race stars.
Regardless, I’ll try to get as much footage, info and photos as possible!
