Everything Announced at the Gamescom Opening Night Live

The Gamescom Opening Night Live started the iconic gaming convention in Germany with all the bells and whistles! Here’s our recap of everything that was announced during the ONL:

Announcements & Reveals

  • Everywhere – ex-Rockstar developer, Leslie Benzies, offered the first look at the incredible open-world experience of Everywhere.

  • Moving Out 2 – the sequel to an adorable “couch co-op” is in the works, as shown by this short-but-sweet trailer!

  • New Tales From the Borderlands – true, it had been announced back in April (and then leaked again a week before Gamescom), but today we finally saw the official reveal trailer, as well as the release date of October 21! That’s like, right around the corner!

  • Tortuga: A Pirate’s Tale – aside from the brief glimpse we got to see at ONL, we’re yet to learn more about this title.

  • Sonic Frontiers – brought in a new trailer and confirmed the release date of November 8.

  • Under the Waves – a visually stunning, story-driven adventure revolving around an oil company diver in the 1970s was announced and shown for the first time.

  • Moonbreakertake a look at this digital tabletop game written by the legendary author Brandon Sanderson.

  • Stranded: Alien Dawn – a “planet survival sim”, Alien Dawn was presented with an incredible cinematic trailer.

  • Atlas Fallen – there are monsters and is the weapon, and we’re not going to make that Anakin joke. Watch the trailer instead.

  • Killer Klowns From Outer Space – the iconic 80’s horror franchise (that couldn’t scream 80’s more) joins the club of classic slashers-turned-games. Enjoy it with friends in a 3v7 format in early 2023.

  • Wyrdsong – despite a Norse component in the title, the upcoming open-world RPG from ex-Bethesda Jeff Gardiner takes place in an alternative version of historical Portugal. It’s dark, it’s filled strange entities and conspiracies, and it’s not coming soon enough.

  • Park Beyond – if you’re into simulators, this one lets you build your own amusement park; watch it happen!

  • Phantom Hellcat – a hack’n’slash set in a cursed theater? That’s the proposal of the newly created developer Ironbird Creations and it looks hella good.
