The lights are on
Gamescom begins in just a few days in Cologne, Germany. We wish we could take you all with us, but instead, we’re helping bring the excitement to you.
Throughout the week, we’ll have news, previews, and interviews right from the show. Everything kicks off with four live events.
If you’re a Call of Duty fan, you’ll want to tune in here for the Advanced Warfare multiplayer reveal. That event begins at 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern / 7 p.m. CEST on Monday, August 11.
During that event, you’ll find out more about Sledgehammer’s vision for Call of Duty multiplayer. If this is your annual jam, you’ll want to see what’s in store.
On Tuesday, August 12, Microsoft and Sony will show off their latest updates and announcements. Microsoft is up first, beginning at 5 a.m. Pacific / 8 a.m. Eastern / 2 p.m. CEST. You’ll be able to watch that event on Xbox Live via the Twitch app, Xbox.com, and YouTube.
