We're only a few weeks away from Gamescom, one of the world's biggest gaming shows. This year it's kicking off with a livestream from Geoff Keighley, with more than a dozen world-premiere announcements from major publishers planned for the broadcast. 

Opening Night Live will be streaming live at 11 a.m. Pacific on Monday, August 19. It's nighttime in Cologne, Germany, before you start "Well actually-ing it up." 

According to Keighley, the show will include "world premiere content" from 2K, Activision, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Bungie, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Epic Games, Google Stadia, Koch Media/Deep Silver, Private Division, Sega, Square Enix, Sony Interactive Entertainment, THQ Nordic, and Xbox Game Studios. We'll have to wait and see what "world premiere content" means. It's probably safe to expect a mix of game announcements, trailers, and new information about modes. Hideo Kojima will be on stage, so you can assume we'll be seeing some new Death Stranding content, too.

Be sure to come back on August 19 for all the Opening Night Live news, in addition to on-the-ground coverage from the show over the following days.
