Following the cancellation of E3, Gamescom, and most of the other major industry events due to COVID-19, IGN announced their “Summer of Gaming,” a series of digital events and reveals (including the first-ever IGN Expo) to be held throughout the month of June. Well, now IGN has revealed their full Summer of Gaming schedule, and it’s packed full with reveals, gameplay demos, and a whole lot more.

IGN is promising to announce at least seven new titles, including stuff from Funcom and Merge Games. As for trailers and gameplay, expect fresh looks at Werewolf: The Apocalypse, Wasteland 3, Mafia: Definitive Edition, Humankind, Total War Saga: Troy, Destroy All Humans!, Observer: System Redux, and more. You can check out the full schedule in the gallery below (click on the images for full resolution).

Chivalry 2 Delayed to 2021, Will Release Simultaneously on PC & Consoles

In case you don’t want to squint at the above images, here are all of IGN’s upcoming exclusive announcements. IGN will also be streaming various “partner” digital shows like CD Projekt Red’s “Night City Wire” event and EA Play Live, but I’m not listing those here.
