After 5 awesome days, Europe’s biggest gaming convention came to a close on Saturday, leaving behind it a colorful batch of new trailers to get completely hyped over. Here’s what some of our staff had to say about their favorite reveals from Gamescom 2018:
With the announcement of The Company at Gamescom, the one thing I felt that Battlefield was missing has now been added to the game: customization. I already know I’ll enjoy putting in the hours to level up and spec out my soldier to fit my exact play style. Battlefield has it all now!
DEVIL MAY CRY 5
10 years! 10 long years of waiting for a new main title in the Devil May Cry series. The new trailer at Gamescom has given us everything we've ever wanted and more. Dante is BACK, followed by Nero in his prime. We get just a quick showing of new weapons, interchangeable Devil Breakers, taunting in the air and shooting while dodging, but it has my mouth watering!
SEKIRO: SHADOWS DIE TWICE
I absolutely loved From Software’s Tenchu Z on Xbox 360 and I’m pumped to give their latest game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, my full attention this coming March. The familiar but upgraded assassination animation shown off in their Gamescom 2018 trailer seriously makes me want to dust off my old console and roll across the rooftops of feudal Japan tonight!
WORLD WAR Z
World War Z is looking like a great mixture of all my favorite zombie shooter experiences. Dynamic zombie hordes, open levels and multiplayer have it so I may never have the same experience twice! It’ll be fun to hop into a lobby with friends, come up with some crazy strategies and battle the hordes until the sun comes up.
Paradox Interactive is bringing my all-time favorite grand strategy game to PS4 and Xbox One, so naturally I'm wildly excited. I'm ready to develop planets, coordinate naval space fleets, plan invasion forces, engage in aggressive diplomacy, form the occasional trade pact and make dangerous scientific breakthroughs, all from the comfort of my couch. It will be really interesting to see how Stellaris plays out on a controller.
