Gamescom is a massive gaming event held in Europe every year since about 2009. It’s back now in 2018 and boy do they have quite a few titles waiting for us. If you’re just as hype for this as I am, and you’re just as much of a PlayStation fan, you probably want to know all the titles that are being announced at Gamescom this year.

All the titles have been separated by who’s making them so you can get right down to your favorites. Here we will list all the big exhibitors we know are going to be there in advance. But, with so many Indie companies going as well we will definitely make sure you are kept in the loop for the PS4 games announced through them as well!

The Elder Scrolls: Blades. (This marks its first appearance in Europe.) The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset will be there to try, as well as the VR title Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot.
As of Tuesday, we haven’t heard anything from Bethesda, but make sure to stay tuned!
Epic games have been all the craze in the world lately. This company brought you Fortnite, one of the extremely popular online games circulating right now. With a whole lot of ups and downs with the politics of Epic Games who knows what they’re going to be bringing to the table when it comes to Gamescom. Perhaps they’ll announce they’re working on something new, or that Fortnite is going to finally be cross-compatible with PlayStation 4 (we wish). Who knows, keep your self in the loop by following this post!
As of Tuesday, we haven’t heard anything from Epic Games, but make sure to stay tuned!
These are the people who brought your games like Dota 2 and all of the Portal collections. While Valve has been rather quiet about what they’re going to be showing off this year at Gamescom, we have a lot of excitement. Could this be the time we’re finally told about a new Portal game, a new update for Dota or another Half-Life? Stay tuned and find out!
As of Tuesday, we haven’t heard anything from Valve, but make sure to stay tuned!
Mimimi is a studio that has brought you games like Shadow Tactics and The Last Tinker. They’re a German based software development company with a home base over there in Munich. One of the biggest things they are known for is the intense story arcs that are put into their games. If you’re playing something by Mimimi, there’s a pretty good chance you’re invested deeply into the story.
Partnering with THQ Nordic, they’re coming to bring you an all-new Desperados! Mimimi representative, Dominik, came on stage to let us know the reason we have been waiting so long for another Desperados is that there was "no market for it." Everyone was so trapped in futuristic games they didn’t want to try bringing back old Westerns just yet. But, the bandits are back in town and ready to test your quick thinking skills!
Most of you might not recognize the name because most people don’t pay attention to title screens when playing, but you’ll surely recognize their games. Bandi Namco has worked on some massive titles, including Dark Souls, Pac-Man, the Naruto fighting games and the Dragon Ball fighting games. These are the titles you pop into your PlayStation when you’ve got a few friends over, share some laughs and see who can make it to the top of your skill tree in 1v1 combat!
One Piece World Seeker
Teaming up with Supermassive, Bandai Namco is working to bring you another One Piece selection that’s coming to you sometime in 2018. I don’t know about you, but One Piece has always been one of my favorite animes that have always been easy to lose myself in. Not only do you get just enough silly to keep you laughing and entertained, but the story actually does a wonderful job of teaching you real life lessons without you even realizing. I, for one, am very excited to add this title to my gaming collection.
The Dark Pictures – Anthology
Another horror game to add to your collection of you’re another one who loves all things spoopy that go bump in the night. The anthology will be a series of games where each will have their own unique story and cast. Think of this as an "American Horror Story" except the game version and they don’t have to refilter the same cast over and over again. The first of the series, The Man of Medan, will be coming to us sometime in 2019. The story focuses on a group of divers looking to explore the deep depths of the ocean. Something I’m already terrified of, so I’m more than excited to play this in a game.
Square Enix has been a popular name you’ve probably been hearing ever since you were younger. They’re responsible for bringing you games like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, the Fullmetal Alchemist game series, Octopath Traveler and so much more. With a waterfall of so many great titles falling from their belt I am beyond stoked they are making their way to Gamescom this year. If they’ve got something to announce I’m willing to bet it’s gonna be good.
Life is Strange 2
Lose yourself in another Life is Strange with this sequel. This time we’ll be following a male lead and his little brother who is just trying to survive in the wild. But, what would cause their life to be in such disarray? Seems like the big brother has more than a few secrets he’s keeping. Develop your own feelings on him during gameplay when it releases on September 27, 2018.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is getting some new DLC coming soon. The Amorous Adventures of the Bold Sir Hans Capon is coming to you soon, and it proceeds both Band of Bastards and A Woman’s Lot. While we haven’t been given much on what this DLC is even going to cover, we do know that it will be here in the early fall. So, regardless I guess we’re going to find out soon!
This time Square Enix is going to be working with Nine Dots to bring you Outward, a revolutionary roleplaying game for you to jump into. Not only will this game have a multiplayer option, but you can play on a split screen! The launch date is set for February 12, 2019, and I’m more than excited to check it out. Open world roleplay adventures will always have the keys to my heart. Always.
Our well-loved Pathfinder Kingmaker is coming to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox sometime next year! This is based on a roleplaying system we’ve all come to know and love in our tabletop games. Well, now you can play the game in some highly immersive gameplay where you can build a kingdom, find love, kill your enemies and take over the world. Are you ready to bring your fantasy to reality?
There have always been a thousand words to describe the Shenmue series, and most of them revolve around "gorgeous," "addicting," and "breathtaking." Trust me, it’s all for a reason too. This title was first announced to us during E3 in 2015, and we’ve been waiting with the highest anticipation ever since. Well, here at Gamescom we’ve finally been given the details we’ve been looking for. The next of the series is coming to you on August 27, 2019! So, if you haven’t started playing this series yet, you absolutely should.
Ubisoft is another one of those massive gaming companies that have brought you huge titles like Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed, For Honor, and more. With them making an appearance at Gamescom I’m rather interested to see what kind of news they might have for us regarding future releases of games or even DLC.
Partnering with Blue Byte, they are celebrating 25 years of the game Settlers with this wonderful new piece. The History Collection contains all 7 modernized games and will be available November 15, 2018. So get ready to take a walk through history! This may not be the news we were hoping for when it came to massive Gamescom announcements, but we’ve still go the rest of the week to go so let’s see where it takes us!
