Yesterday saw the start of the digital version of Gamescom 2020, kicking off with the usual Opening Night Live ceremony that gave us loads of new trailers and gameplay for various already announced games as well as a few surprises. Unfortunately not all of the clips were uploaded online officially by the publishers or developers, so we’ve had to use some reuploads from some very kind YouTube users.

We got a few new faces announced like Unknown 9: Awakening, the strangest crossover of the year Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead, and the announcement of a brand new Sam and Max game!... In VR. We also got Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground as well as many others, so take a look below!

The best for last!

Unknown9 - somehow I get a Assassins Creed feeling from this very good trailer with good music! Ancient mysteries. Secret societies. Deadly rivalries. I hope I will not be disappointed again when I see a good trailer but the game will show as terrible.

Those animated shorts by Blizzard are always instant classics. Let us hope that Shadowlands lives up to the standards. The first impressions are certainly positive, though.
