What to Expect at Gamescom Opening Night Live and How to Watch
Gamescom 2022 is fast approaching and there are 6 full days of announcements to look forward to. To kick everything off, day one of Gamescom will feature Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live, but in-person this time! Opening Night Live, or, Gamescom: ONL comes after Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest that happened in June, which covered its own exciting announcements like TLOU remake for PS5. Summer Game Fest might have covered game trailers and gameplay in June, but Tuesday’s Opening Night Live showcase will also feature more “game announcements, world premieres, and more on a huge stage!”
Although the event is in-person this year (in Germany), it will have online elements and ways to stream throughout the 6 days, so see the details below on what you can expect for the first day of Gamescom.
