12 best games from Gamescom 2019: Cyberpunk 2077, breakup and more

It may seem odd to some that another massive video game show opens its doors shortly after E3, while Gamescom in Cologne is a huge deal. Not only have European gamers been able to see many of the games for 2019 and beyond without having to cross the Atlantic, it also gives game publishers and developers the chance to demo games later in their development cycle.

For us, this often means that we get to play segments of the game that we previously could only gawk at or would talk through. E3 is often the best place to see the latest games at Gamescom, often the first place you can actually play them yourself.

That's when our top 12 games at Gamescom 2019.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2

  • Release Date: March 2020
  • Format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC

At Gamescom, our 2 team focused on ray tracing aspects of the upcoming, highly anticipated sequel to the best suck-em-up. It will support the realistic lighting technology introduced on NVIDIA GeForce RTX video cards and most likely the next generation of consoles from Xbox and PlayStation: Project Scarlett and PS5.

Blair Witch

  • Release date: August 30, 2019.
  • Format(s): Xbox One, PC

The blunder team, a developer under layers of fear and the watcher, seems like the perfect place to finally bring the Blair Witch franchise to gaming. The Gamescom demo was terrible for all the right reasons and the spirit of the original film was captured superbly.

Dark Pictures Anthology: The Man from Medan

  • Release date: August 30, 2019.
  • Format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC

Looming another horror game comes from the maker before dawn - one of the best interactive fantasy games around. Expect just as scary a ride as your decisions could mean life or death for the terrorized main characters. More games in the dark An anthology of photography is clearly planned.

Final Fantasy VII Remake

  • Release Date: March 3 2020
  • Format(s): PS4

We've had a lot of remasters during this generation of games, but this is more of a completely remastered remake of one of the best ultimate fantasy RPGs around. Indeed, our gameplay demo was enough to give us the feeling of a brand new game in the series.

Special Squad Ghost: Halt

  • Release Date: October 4 2019
  • Format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadiums

We admit that we don't really play much wild lands after launch, as it's not anywhere near as good for a single player as it was in co-op. Stoppage promises to be different, better focus and tuning for solo play.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

  • Release Date: October 25 2019
  • Format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC

Another game we need to play with Nvidia's ray tracing technology in full force, the latest call of duty seems to be a real return to form for the franchise. More realistic and tangible in weaponry and layout, the solution to craft a game with sand could prove to be a ploy for Activision.

Death Stranding

  • Release date: November 8, 2019
  • Format(s): PS4

Finally, we have an idea of ​​how the gameplay works. Kind. There's a new Death Stranding demo (and trailer) at Gamescom 2019, and while the concept is still vague and weird, there's plenty to play in Kojima's next masterpiece.

Zombie Army 4: War Dead

  • Release date: early 2020
  • Format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC

Anyone who has played the previous Zombie Army trilogy will know what to expect from the fourth outing. Action has resumed, of course, with more weapons and character customization than ever before. And, similar traps to those found in the sisters game Strange Brigade really adds to the fun.

Marvel Avengers

  • Release date: 15 May 2020
  • Format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadiums

Finally, we got to play Crystal Dynamics on The Avengers - at least open the tutorial - and all our fears were initially dispelled. Each of the characters feels different without having to learn all new controller configurations each time, and we're sure the "on the rails" style of the prologue isn't representative of the last task in the game.

Watch Dogs Legion

  • Release Date: March 6 2020
  • Format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadiums

Our session of watching Legion Dogs turned into a hilarious, wild chase through the streets of Central London, but not before we got to fully try out the excellent matchmaking mechanic. The idea of ​​being able to approach and hire any NPC in the entire game is not only a good idea, it actually works in practice too. Excellent.


  • Release date: 2020
  • Format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC

Developed by one of the creators of the original Halo, Decay brings something new to the FPS genre. Your character rides on a gravity cycle so it hovers over the battlefield while the soldiers under the battlefield control the field. This is a great concept, the gameplay of which combines FPS with RC in an intuitive way.

Cyberpunk 2077

  • Release Date: April 16 2020
  • Format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadiums

What can you say about Cyberpunk 2077 that wasn't there before? This he will come to Google stadiums, that's what. The long-awaited RPG from the developers of The Witcher 3 will be released on the gaming cloud platform in 2020, although later than its console and PC versions.
