THE MOST EXCITING NEWS FROM
EUROPE’S biggest games convention may have been held entirely online this year, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t served up some exciting new games for us to get hyped about!
Gamescom began with a special two-hour-long showcase called Opening Night Live (ONL), where presenter Geoff Keighley revealed some more details about games that we already knew about, as well as showing off some new ones.
One of the biggest bits of news from the show was the reveal of Fall Guys Season 2. Featuring allnew medieval-themed levels and skins, it’s looking like a lot of bumbling fun!
Next up was a proper good look at the PS5 exclusive, Ratchet & Clank: RiftApart. As the heroes blast their way through enemies, they’ll find themselves leaping (and falling) through wormholes into other dimensions. This stuff really shows off the power of next-generation consoles, as these other dimensions feel like completely different, detailed levels. It’s actually pretty bizarre not seeing a loading screen as you go from dimension to dimension.
We’ve been excited about LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga since it was first announced, and this week we actually got to see some gameplay. Rather than the top-down appearance that LEGO games have traditionally had, it looks like The Skywalker Saga will be played over the shoulder, a bit like Fortnite (PEGI 12). It’s definitely an interesting mix-up, and we can’t wait to see more.
Finally, there was one big announcement that we’re extremely excited by – a co-op multiplayer mode is coming to Untitled Goose Game. Honk!
