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!

First News - - GAME ZONE -

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!
