Now Playing: Gamescom Will Reveal New Death Stranding Footage - GS News Update

Gamescom 2019 is just around the corner. The annual gaming showcase takes place later this month in Cologne, Germany, but before the convention proper begins, The Game Awards producer Geoff Keighley will be hosting an Opening Night Live broadcast that promises to give viewers an exclusive look at a number of upcoming titles, including PS4's highly anticipated Death Stranding.

Keighley revealed that Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima will make an appearance during the Gamescom: Opening Night Live broadcast, which will air on Monday, August 19. Kojima will premiere an "exclusive new look" at his enigmatic PS4 game during the show, which will mark the first new footage we've seen of it since the release date trailer that dropped back in May.

Kojima won't be the only developer premiering exclusive footage during the Gamescom: Opening Night Live stream; more than 15 of the industry's biggest publishers will also make announcements and debut "world premiere content" during the broadcast, in addition to a number of indie studios. Specific games and announcements will be detailed ahead of the broadcast, but some of the publishers that will be participating in the show include:

  • 2K
  • Activision
  • Bandai Namco
  • Bungie
  • Capcom
  • EA
  • Epic Games
  • Google Stadia
  • Deep Silver
  • Private Division
  • Sega
  • Square Enix
  • Sony
  • THQ Nordic
  • Ubisoft
  • Xbox Game Studios

Gamescom: Opening Night Live begins at 11 AM PT / 2 PM PT / 8 PM CEST on August 19, while Gamescom proper takes place from August 21-24. The broadcast will air on "all major game streaming platforms" and will be presented in English with translations in more than eight languages.

Death Stranding launches for PS4 on November 8. The title will be available in standard and collector's editions, the latter of which runs for $200 and includes a life-sized BB Pod statue. You can read more about the game and its various editions and pre-order bonuses in our Death Stranding pre-order guide.
