We're nearing the start of the yearly game trade show Gamescom, with doors opening on August 20 for media and trade visitors and on August 21 for the public, going on until August 24. There's plenty of happenings planned for this year's show, as it should, considering the show celebrates its 10-year anniversary, and we've listed them all below.
Starting us off is Nintendo Indie World that, while not being part of the official Gamescom schedule, is held on Monday, August 19 at 2pm BST. It seems as though we can expect a short Nintendo Direct focusing on indie titles, but only time will tell what's in store. You can check the stream here.
Following Nintendo Indie World is the Gamescom Inside Xbox live stream where the games we're looking forward to from Xbox will be shown in more detail. The Inside Xbox stream will begin at 5pm (BST) on August 19 and you can watch it here.
The third stream is Google Stadia Connect, which is being held on August 19 at 6pm (BST) and we're looking forward to seeing more games running on Google's streaming-powered platform. The stream can be found here.
The last "press conference" at Gamescom, which is held on the same day, on August 19, is Gamescom Opening Night Live, which will be hosted by The Game Awards' Geoff Keighley. We reported on this show briefly a few days ago, and the lineup of game publishers attending is impressive to say the least. Read more about that here. Looking to watch the stream that kicks Gamescom off for real? Check Gamescom Opening Night Live here at 7pm (BST).
It's certainly convenient that all conferences are held on the same day, so if you are planning to check them all out, you can just grab your popcorn, sit down on the sofa and binge-watch the conferences back-to-back.
Of course, there'll be plenty of news coming out of Cologne throughout the entire trade show and we'll keep you updated here on Gamereactor.
