According to Keighley, the two-hour long showcase will feature a total of 38 games, including various world premieres.
Back in April of this year, it was announced that Gamescom 2020 would be replaced by a digital-only event due to measures against COVID-19. “We are, however, already working at full speed on a digital Gamescom”, the organization behind Gamescom wrote. “ It is, after all, the world’s biggest event for games, and that’s what it should be again this year. You can already look forward to how we will celebrate the best games and Gamescom together with you and millions of gamers worldwide at the end of August, even if it will only be digital and not on location this time. Because one thing is certain: this year, too, Gamescom is and will remain “the Heart of Gaming”!
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was officially announced during Sony’s ‘The Future of Gaming” PS5 reveal event some months ago. Alongside the game’s announcement, developer Insomniac Games and Sony showed off an impressive-looking gameplay trailer featuring interdimensional action. We’ve included this announcement trailer below:
The intergalactic adventurers are back with a bang in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Help them take on a robotic emperor working overtime to wipe out organic life, with their own universe next in the firing line.
