Gamescom 2020: WoW Shadowlands’ launch date, Star Wars Squadrons’ new trailer


We’re updating this post at the bottom – scroll on down for the latest!

Forced to go digital thanks to the global pandemic, Gamescom 2020 is finally upon us, this time broadcast to the whole world instead of being the funtimes trawling grounds of just those who can make it to Cologne.

The pre-show for the opening night ceremonies are scheduled for 1:30 p.m. EDT today, just as this post goes live – remember, it’s technically still run from Germany, so it’s already evening across the pond! The big event kicks off at 2 p.m. EDT, with Geoff Keighley hosting. We’re expecting a whole slew of announcements and trailers, mostly notably for our audience WoW Shadowlands, Star Wars Squadrons, and Dual Universe.

We’ll be updating with the big MMO-relevant stuff as we go!

Dragon Age
Not an MMO, but BioWare’s Dragon Age is definitely something with gobs of overlap with our readers. The studio dropped a behind-the-scenes video for the next entry in the franchise.

WoW Shadowlands
Blizzard just premiered the first episode of Afterlives, its new cinematic series leading into Shadowlands. More importantly, they’ve announced the launch date is October 27th!

The base edition will run $39.99 digitally, though you can pay as much as $119.99 for various tiers of collector editions.

We’ve posted full details over in a separate WoW-centric post!

Star Wars Squadrons
New trailer with narration up, this one on the single-player narrative arc, though.

It’s not an MMO, but The Sims 4 is getting a Star Wars-themed gamepack too. The rumors were true!

Warframe got a nod with its big Heart of Deimos launch and trailer this week. The Switch launch for the update was today too!

Destiny 2
Bungie trotted out a new trailer for Beyond Light.
