After heroically skipping E3 to sit in beer gardens and enjoy the World Cup, like all sensible people should’ve been doing, THQ Nordic is going to be at Gamescom 2018 in Cologne in a big way. A relatively innocuous publisher just a few years ago, THQ Nordic is going to have eight games on show at Gamescom, including a pair of exclusive announcements.
They’ve revealed the line-up in a new Gamescom 2018 trailer, showcasing the likes of Biomutant, Darksiders 3, Fade to Silence, Avalanche’s Generation Zero and the likes of Towns VR and Wreckfest, both of which are already out on PC.
On top of that, we’ve got the two new games that are set to be revealed, one of which will be showcased during the Gamescom opening ceremony. If it’s a new Delta Force or Joint Operations then I will unashamedly wet myself.

- Biomutant (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – Playable

Please let one of those unannounced games be a new Titan Quest or a Remaster.
I will have a look on biomutant but what scares me is that it might be just another typical AAA game with the very same price and the same gameplay and hours you can put in and after 6 months they will release a £15 DLC with 10 extra hours
Hyped for Biomutant!
I'm really glad they're coming back in the game, they've always made interesting single player games
wreckfest is the only one that is not interessting
We Need Delta Force reboot
Hope they patch the bugs thats in darksiders 2 deathinitive edition, some nasty lighting/shadow bugs where you turn the camera and it flickers, some shadows look broken too, least the darksiders warmaster edition seems ok, audio seems a little off at times but alot less annoying than flickering, with the 3rd game coming it be nice to have the first two fixed
Nobody is likely to ever fix Darksiders II after all this time, it's kind of pointless now. As far as I know, there are no game breaking bugs at this time.
Thq updated a 17 year old game so they could easily fix the 2nd game
Yes, but the whole reason was for Xbox One and PS4 players who never played them. They have literally no reason to now as none of it is game breaking or making the game unplayable.
Guess I'm not sensible cause I watched E3 and couldn't care less about some World Cup.
