Here's how to watch the Opening Night Live 2022 stream and its 30-plus new reveals.
Gamescom Opening Night Live starts in just a few minutes. The big Geoff Keighley-led livestream is promising a look at dozens of games, including some new announcements. There have been many teases about what to expect, but there are sure to be surprises, so you'll want to watch live to catch it all as soon as it's revealed. You can watch the stream below and catch all the details on what we know about the event.
Opening Night Live 2022 will be the first live in-person ONL presentation since 2019, following two years of online-only livestreams. Whether that means it'll be a more announcement-packed show or not remains to be seen.

The Opening Night Live stream begins today, August 23, at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET. The livestream, according to a tweet from Keighley, will showcase "30+ games on stage" in a two-hour show. Previous ONLs have featured announcements during a half-hour pre-show as well, but Keighley has confirmed there will be no pre-show this year. Opening Night Live will broadcast live in multiple countries in English, but subtitles will be available.
