Here’s what we’ve got our eye on multiplayer-wise after the opening night of Gamescom this year.
Disintegration: Former Bungie creative director Marcus Lehto is helming this new multiplayer sci-fi shooter that’ll aim to “challenge how you approach the battlespace.”
Kerbal Space Program 2: It’s launching spring 2020 on PC and “shortly after” for PS4 and Xbox One, and this time, it’ll have fully supported multiplayer as “players will be able to share these experiences collectively in multiplayer for the first time in franchise history.”
Cyberpunk 2077: We still don’t know whether this one’s gonna be multiplayer post-launch, though we’ve had so many rumors suggesting it that we’re guessing that’s a big yep. But the latest news is that it’ll be a Stadia Connect game.
Stadia: And while we’re on the subject of Google’s cloud-streaming-console-monstrosity, Google gave a rather repetitive presentation for folks who’d already absorbed the details earlier this summer; the key takeaway is the promise of exclusives. Other folks… well let’s just say there’s still a lot of skepticism over whether Google has the bandwidth chops, to say nothing of the game offerings, to justify what it’s selling here.
The Cycle: The “competitive quest shooter” dropped a new trailer to remind everyone it’s not another battle royale game.
Pagan Online: The devs are at Gamescom with Swedish heavy metal band Sabaton in tow, which is kinda awesome.
We will be joining Pagan Online both in-game and at the booth!Legendary Sabaton weapons for every hero will be making their way into the game. -Visit their Gamescom booth to try them first!
Killsquad: Novaroma’s co-op ARPG posted a fresh trailer for the occasion. It’s still a relatively new title, having just hit Steam early access back in July.
Monster Hunter World: Capcom is building hype for the Iceborne expansion due out September 4th.
Borderlands 3: Finally, Gearbox pushed out a primer for the game aimed chiefly at new and returning players.
Obviously we’re expecting quite a bit more out of Gamescom and then especially PAX West later this month, but there’s a taste of stuff a bit on MOP’s periphery. What’s caught your eye so far?
