    Gamescom 2022 is set to kick off next week in Germany on August 24 and will run until August 28. Along with on-floor demos and online events dedicated to showcasing new titles, Geoff Keighley will be hosting the annual Gamescom Opening Night Live the night before. Said to contain 30+ different games, Keighley took to Twitter last night to reveal 11 of the titles that viewers can expect to see during the presentation. Alongside the aforementioned triple-A games will be Return to Monkey Island, Goat Simulator 3, and High on Life.

    Keighley also teased a look at gameplay for the Bloodborne-inspired Lies of P during the presentation. He states it will be a “really great trailer.”

    World Premiere

    Gamescom is an annual trade show event that has been running for the last 12 years. Situated in Cologne, Germany, Gamescom is similar in presence to E3 for European developers and fans. Keighley has been holding “Opening Night Live” since 2019 as a primer to the main show and to give international fans a chance to see games as they are announced. While not too dissimilar to The Game Awards, Keighley has made attempts to differentiate the events by focusing more on games than celebrity appearances and commercials.

    This year’s Opening Night Live presentation is set to run for two hours. It will include 30+ games and will be broadcast live at 8 pm CEST/7 pm BST/2 pm EST/11 am PST. You can watch the stream on Youtube and on Twitch.
