Gamescom 2014

Gamescom begins next week. And Gamescom is a big event. You know what a big event calls for? A totally organized press conference and streaming schedule, that’s what. And we’ve got that for you below.

(Note: This schedule will be updated as Gamescom approaches.)

Press Conferences


When: August 12 at 2:00 p.m. CEST / 8:00 a.m. EDT (local times)

Confirmed appearances:

Likely and rumored appearances:

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – The multiplayer reveal is a day before, but given its partnership with Microsoft, there’s a chance we’ll see more Advanced Warfare at the press conference.
  • Dance Central Spotlight and Fantasia: Music Evolved – Both are Xbox exclusives due out for the platform this year, so likely a new trailer.
  • Fable Legends – The new take on Fable is due out for Xbox One next year, so likely a new trailer.
  • Forza Horizon 2 – The open-world racer sequel is due out in September, so likely a new trailer.
  • Halo 5: Guardians – Less on the likely side than others, as we’ve yet to officially see Halo 5 yet. With The Master Chief Collection due out this year, perhaps we’ll get another tease.
  • Killer Instinct: Season Two – Probably a new fighter reveal given it’s due out this fall.
  • Ori and the Blind Forest – Likely playable on the show floor, so maybe a new trailer.
  • Sunset Overdrive – The Insomniac-made open-world game is due out in October, so likely a new trailer.
  • ID@Xbox titles – Microsoft has been announcing plenty of indie titles as of late. It should be safe to expect its next flow of Xbox One indies at Gamescom, where it initially unveiled the ID@Xbox program.
  • Big surprises you will not want to miss.”

  • Housemarque’s next game – The Resogun developer teased it will be “announcing something out of this world” at Gamescom. Perhaps we’ll see that Dead Nation successor teased back in September?
  • Michel Ancel’s new game – The Rayman creator recently started a new indie studio. A NeoGAF user who claims to have a friend at the studio said, before deleting his post, that we’ll get a first look at their original game (Mojostan?) at Sony’s Gamescom press conference.

    Unannounced Japanese PlayStation 4 game – An e-mail sent to press mentions a 30 minute demo on August 13 of an “Unannounced JP PS4 title.” It will likely be unveiled at the press conference the day before.


    • RyoonZ

      Secret PS4 JRPG

      • pixxxelz

        I was thinking The Last Guardian lol

    • Impressionnant

      Knack 2!

      • Elvick

        Would buy. Knack is a good game that gets hate from people who never played it, but act like they have (and reviewers I’m still convinced played on easy).

        Lots of potential in a sequel.

      • 武神水樹

        Knack sales don’t support a sequel

        • Impressionnant

          It was a joke.

          • 武神水樹


    • ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

      Deep Down

    • Budgiecat


  • pekot

    Destiny again in sony Conference ?
    God I hate this game.

    • MyBodyIsReady

      I’d take it over more Assassins Creed and Watch Dogs though lol

    • Elvick

      It’s amaze balls. I am tired of hearing about it though, :p

      • Budgiecat

        Destiny is meh.
        No Man’s Sky is amazing

  • Tetris

    “The Last Guardian – lol I’m just kidding.”


    • Onodera Kosaki


    • GetOffMy_Lawn

  • Guest

    Sony’s lineup is nice. And micorsoft is stepping up this gen. This years games com is turning out to be the biggest one yet.

  • Sergio Montecarlo Vile

    Sony wins

  • Forty

    Housemarque’s next game might be jumping the gun a little. I’d be all for it, but if you remember, the Resogun Heroes DLC they released around E3 was released along with a Season Pass that contained it and (for now) nothing else. I imagine whatever they have lined up for August will be part of the Resogun Season Pass.

    Another Housemarque game on top of that would be awesome though.

  • Six

    I expect nothing.

    Except more indie ports for Vita.

    • shogunknight

      Your statement means you are actually hoping for something new on vita

  • badmoogle

    I’m not expecting any major surprises. I’m only looking forward to Bloodborne gameplay and new info for that game.

  • shogunknight

    I hope we see some stable bloodorne footage and gameplay for platinums xbox exclusive, nintendo isnt attending gamescom?

    • Six

      TGS is more likely for Scalebound, and Nintendo is attending Gamescom.

      • shogunknight

        Sorry, i was trying to say no plans for nintendo in gamescom. Like a direct/treehouse event

  • DarthBrian

    Not sure I want to wake up at 5am for Microsoft. But I suppose I could. *shrug*

    Sony has a nice convenient time though.

  • Varnes

    “Last Guardian – Lol just kidding” That’s a low blow XD

  • Daervyr

    I hope they give us the release date of Freedom Wars.

  • Learii

    EDT is the west zone right?

    • Sal Romano

      It’s New York time.

      If you hit the local times link next to each time and look for your nearest city, you should be able to find your local time. =)

      • Learii

        ok thx

  • Anime10121

    Looks like I’ll miss Microsofts :(

    Oh well, I’ll get to see the rest, and the MGS one is the only one I REALLY want to watch anyway :D

    • Budgiecat

      No Phantom Dust or Scalebound footage, so not missing much…

      • Anime10121

        Well, I do want to see a bit more about Sunset Overdrive before I make up my mind, so I’ll be glad to see that at the very least when I get back! The only other game I’m excited for is the Master Chief Collection… and I already know what I’m getting out of that, so no need for any info/video on that :P

  • MrFinalgamer

    YUS! I’ll be able to watch both conferences. Hope to see ya’ll there, and SCEE better show the Vita some well deserved love!

    • 罪罰

      Hehe, never.

  • Raiyu

    Looks like I’ll be missing both conferences..:(

  • Martian Wong

    Why is Sony Press conference is not dated?

    • Sal Romano

      Sorry about that! It’s August 12.

      • Martian Wong

        No problem~~

  • Budgiecat

    Square Enix?

    Hashimoto: Please be excited…..just not for this event..

    • zakou

      Eberywon good evening ladies and gents, people watching at home, my name is Shinji Hashimoto im the older brother with your sister.

      We have bery biggu annoucement here at Square Ennixu, Prease be very excited please! Thank you thank you! :D

  • Six

    I just remembered that there is a rumor that Ubisoft is making a 2D Prince of Persia game using the UbiArt engine.

    That would be awesome. The world needs more UbiArt games.

    • Budgiecat

      But I thought everyone is supposed to hate Ubisoft…

    • Elvick

      The world needs every publisher to ripoff the UbiArt engine… Konami and Capcom especially, so we can get hawt as fuck Castlevania and Mega Man… But we can’t have THAT many nice things.

      • Six

        They shouldn’t have to rip it off. It should be open source like Michel Ancel wants.

        But Ubisoft gonna Ubisoft.

  • Martian Wong

    A few surprises from Hideo Kojima? Is it limited to Metal Gear Solid V only or other series such as Zone of The Ender 3?

    • Solomon_Kano

      Expect ZOE if you want, but…

  • Sal Romano

    Added IGN’s schedule.

    I’ll bump this post to the top tomorrow.

  • pekot

    Bloodborne gameplay …. can’t wait.

  • Six


    plz microsoft


    • Budgiecat

      you really are a diehard fan despite so many broken 360’s and M$’s lies…

      • Six

        And you are strangely invested in the interests of a stranger on the internet.

        • Elvick

          The internet is a strange place,

        • Budgiecat


          we are family here

          no matter how strange you are…. :3

  • Anime10121

    Oooh, the return of Rime! Been wanting more of that! Hopefully we get release dates on that and Cuphead!

    Also hoping that Japanese PS4 game isn’t a port, or a remaster! Also hoping for Halo 5 to make an appearance! Kinda iffy on Quantum Break though…

    • Sal Romano

      If any of this is accurate, the JP game should be something to look forward to:

      “This is pre-release information, so I can’t write anything about it. I don’t think it’ll make the fall, so we’ll have to wait a little bit longer than that.”

      “But I’ve seen actual gameplay, and it is really just breathtaking. I saw less than 10 minutes of the game, but I really have to take my hat off to the studio for their amazing work. Oh by the way, this isn’t about Final Fantasy XV; I wonder when that one is going to be released…”

      “But anyway, I am totally going to buy this!”

      • Anime10121

        Sounds interesting! Cant wait to see what comes of this tomorrow!

      • Wolf Star

        Final Fantasy XV …
        Meh Unless they skip TGS 2014? It’s already August I’m surprised they haven’t announced FFXV skipping TGS 2014.

  • Kuro-Law

    Honestly hope none of them disappoint. I want the hype to consume me!

  • Kuro-Law

    Anything Vita people are jus like
    Plz let me believe.

    • Digidyne017

      I’m at least calling for an announcement for Gravity Rush 2, PSO2 vita, and DOAU+ and a vita port of Persona 4 Ultimax. Honestly, anything with the words “vita” and “announced for” in the same sentence that is heard at least 12 times would suit. Hopefully with no cheap indies that get overpriced.

  • Six

    My kingdom for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PS4 and Xbone.

  • Coloso90909
    • DarthBrian


  • 武神水樹

    I wonder if the unannounced PS4 title is first party, more than likely it’ll be third

    • Lelouch Vi Britannia

      What if the first party game was “Legend of Dragoon”?

  • Solomon_Kano

    > The Last Guardian – lol I’m just kidding.

    I love you, Sal.

  • Invisbin

    It says it starts next week but all the conferences are the week before?

  • Mr. Uncensored 2015

    I hope from Sony we get:
    Media Molecules New Ip 2015
    Guerrilla Games New Ip 2015
    Quantic Dream New Ip 2015
    Ratchet & Clank Remake Reveal 2015
    Until Dawn Remade to a AAA Title 2015
    Japanese PS4 New Ip 2015
    Updates on Rime, Everybody Gone To The Rapture, ABZU, No Man’s Sky, LBP 3, DriveClub, The Order 1886, Bloodborne, & Uncharted 4

    From Microsoft hopefully they add 3 New Exclusives to go along with Halo 5, Fable Legends, Quantum Break, Phantom Dust, Sunset Overdrive, Scalebound, Crackdown, D4 & Forza Horizon 2

    Also is Nintendo not showing up this year again?

  • PrinceHeir

    So we get to reveal a new JPN game and not on TGS O__O

    I expect MGSV awesome gameplay and trailer.

    “The Last Guardian – lol I’m just kidding.”

    Damn that hurts!

  • Six

    Hopes and dreams time

    – Dishonored II for PS4/XBO/PC for 2015
    – Either a new Sleepy Dawgs or Deus Ex
    – 2D Prince of Persia running on the UbiArt engine
    – Blood Dragon 3: Vietnam War 2
    – Serious Sam 4
    – An old Rare IP being brought back as a digital release
    – Ninja Theory’s new IP is worthwhile
    – Details about Bloodborne’s online features
    – Microsoft ditches the stupid fucking parity clause for ID@Xbox
    – Not too much time spent on Fable because lol fable lol
    – An original Xbox IP like Crimson Skies or MechAssault is resurrected
    – The rumored RPG from GG
    – Halo 5 beta trailer
    – Scalebound gameplay, or the announcement that it’ll be at TGS
    – Current-gen versions of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
    – Release dates for Arkham Knight, Quantum Break, and The Phantom Pain
    – Lots and lots of The Witcher 3 gameplay
    – Something, anything about Cyberpunk 2077

    • Solomon_Kano

      > Either a new Sleepy Dawgs or Deus Ex

      You mean seeing them, right? Because both have already been announced.

      • Six

        Yeah. I need the rumors about Triad Wars to be false. Supposedly it’s a GTA Online clone. :/

        • Solomon_Kano

          That would be extremely disappointing, but that title always did make me think of a social game…

          Hopefully, UFG and SE have more sense than that. If that’s a component of the game, fine, whatever. But Sleeping Dogs as an IP isn’t going to compete with GTA Online if that’s their focus. They’ve got to know that.

          • Six

            You’d think they would, but it’s Square Enix after all.

    • Budgiecat

      ^^*no Phantom Dust found*

      *Slices Six into two sections of three*

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    What would you say if “Legend of Dragoon” was getting a Remake & Sequel for PS4

    • Solomon_Kano

      I’d say Sony better have their budgeting in order.

    • Elle

      I would run out of the house screamimg butt ass naked.

    • Elvick

      I’d die from happiness and shock.

  • BlueCereal

    Well hopefully that Japanese game is unveiled, won’t be watching this though.

  • The Grim Heaper

    This is basically the only news site I follow so I hope you guys report on any good stuff!

  • Zero

    I’ll be here for the Press Conference’s. I hope you all join me in the comments via the live threads.

    • Budgiecat

      let’s all join paws and hands…

  • Budgiecat

    Why do I gotta log into Facebook just to comment on twitch now, that’s so lame….

  • shogunknight

    Whos 1st? MS, about 3 hours from now. Alrighty

  • Budgiecat

    It has begun
