Gamescom 2022 will see new details for Sega’s Sonic Frontiers and will likely reveal more about Modern Warfare 2 and Bethesda’s upcoming space RPG Starfield. It’s the first live Gamescom since 2019, but you can still watch the opening night stream, hosted by Geoff Keighley, from the comfort of his computer. Here’s how to watch Gamescom 2022.
Gamescom 2022 kicks off on August 23, and if you’re watching from the UK, it starts at 7pm, and viewers on the US East Coast can tune in at 2pm, while those on the PT can start at 11 a.m.
The biggest and most confirmed news so far is the reveal of more details and hopefully additional gameplay footage of Sonic Frontiers, but host Geoff Keighley has also confirmed that the Gamescom opening show will feature “over 30 games” , so it’s possible there will be more than 2022 and 2023’s biggest releases will also be teased.
Call of Duty: Vanguard got a bonus gameplay trailer at last year’s event, so Modern Warfare 2 looks like a good bet for this year. Be sure to check out our guide on the Modern Warfare 2 beta release date and how to play it. We could also see God of War: Ragnarok, FIFA 23, and the upcoming survival horror The Callisto Protocol. Our personal most wanted list includes Dead Space, the Resident Evil 4 remake, and obviously Starfield, but for now all we can do is speculate and wait.
The opening event will be streamed live on the official Game Awards YouTube and Twitch channels. In addition to the times above, it may be worth tuning in half an hour early, as past events have included a preview show that also occasionally contains announcements and new gameplay footage. And of course, if you’re thinking of making the trip to Cologne, Germany and seeing Gamescom in person, you can still purchase a ticket on the event’s official website.
PCGamesN will be reporting live from Gamescom, bringing you each new game and trailer as it’s released. In the meantime, if you want additional details on some of the biggest upcoming releases, check out our Starfield cities guide or our roundup of all the rumours, news and speculation surrounding a possible GTA 6 release date, which we naturally hope will be better. sooner than later.
