Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare News Set For Gamescom [Update]

Geoff Keighley will formally start Gamescom with loads of reveals.


Gamescom is beginning soon, with a wide array of events and press conferences taking place Monday before the show floor opens on Tuesday. This year the show has its own formal opening ceremony, with Geoff Keighley hosting Gamescom Opening Night Live. Some games have already been announced as part of the show, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. [Update: As promised, the Opening Night Live stream delivered an announcement for CoD fans, and it'll come to fruition quite soon. Players on PS4 will get access to a Modern Warfare alpha beginning later this week. Not only that, but this will be open to everyone on the platform, PS Plus subscriber or not.]

Activision teased "exciting news" for Gamescom. Keighley was very slightly more specific on Twitter, saying the game will show new footage and a special announcement. Gamescom Opening Night Live will begin on Monday, August 19 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 6 PM GMT (4 AM AEST on August 20).
