Gamescom 2019 is approaching, and Microsoft will be returning to talk about the future of the company. Microsoft promises an excellent lineup of game news and almost 200 booths that will include access to Minecraft Dungeons, Horde Mode in Gears 5, and so much more.
The event takes place from August 21st to August 25th in Cologne, Germany. To start off, Microsoft will be hosting an episode of Inside Xbox live. The stream will be available on multiple sites such as Xbox.com, Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, Facebook, and even Twitter. The episode will feature the latest gaming news, accessories, and more.
Gamescom attendees will be among the first people in Europe to experience a variety of upcoming games. The Xbox booth will showcase gaming stations that feature games across a multitude of platforms and genres. Players will be able to experience gameplay from titles like Age of Empires II Definitive Edition, Battletoads, Bleeding Edge, Gears 5, Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC, and Minecraft Dungeons. That’s not all - Microsoft assures that they will have more games like Borderlands 3, Doom Eternal, NBA 2K20, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. Lastly, Project xCloud – Microsoft’s answer to game-streaming - will be available to try.
There’s active action to make these booths accessible to all. Xbox Adaptive Controllers will be ready for use at almost every game booth. There will also be wheelchair access and sign language support for all on-booth programming in the English and German languages.
Fans can see the latest gaming hardware on Windows PC. Microsoft will be displaying “custom-built PCs from BoostBoxx by CSL, the latest gaming laptops and desktops from Acer and other partners showcasing high-quality components that deliver powerful PC gaming experiences.” Along with this, guests can try out gaming chairs, one of them being the Predator Thronos.
Partnering with Game Legends, the Xbox Official Gear Shop will have an array of fandom specific merch for titles like Gears of War, Halo, and Sea of Thieves. There will be brand new apparel items and collectibles including the exclusive Gamescom Xbox Green Tech Sphere pin.
