Even if you aren’t in Cologne, Germany, at Gamescom right now, you can still glue your eyeballs to the screen for Gamescom’s Geoff Keighley-hosted Opening Night Live, which will deliver most of the big reveals you’d have wanted from the rest of the show anyhow, and it’s just about to begin. We’re expecting lots of MMO-related drops thanks to teases from the likes of Nightingale, Crimson Desert, Soulframe, and more.
The pre-show got underway at 1:30 p.m. EDT, with the main show kicking off at 2 p.m. EDT. You can watch along with us; we’ll be updating below with the highlights and trailers for those stuck at work!
Here’s PA’s PR on the video:
“The new Crimson Desert gameplay trailer showed significant development progress from its 2020 debut, in 4K high-quality gameplay footage. The video portrays the story of the main protagonist, Kliff, who is investigating events that transpire in the region of Hernand and embarking on a journey of exploration through a vast open world.

“The video showcases realistic and exceptional graphical quality, highlighting immersive gameplay set in a sprawling open world, consisting of vast regions and cities. Other highlights include environment and NPC interactions, motion captured combat and action sequences which offer a sense of realism and enhanced gameplay.
“The trailer showed off diverse combat, from hand-to-hand and wrestling moves to showcasing how players can use various objects (and their surroundings) against foes set in Crimson Desert’s rich open world. From boss fights to duels and battles against large groups of enemies, the footage highlighted the exhilarating combat that challenges players to take out foes with diverse mechanics. The trailer also showed spectacular skydiving, characters climbing buildings and trees, jumping over high barriers, and various mini games such as fishing, arm-wrestling, and taming wild horses.
“Developed on Pearl Abyss’ proprietary next-generation “BlackSpace Engine”, Crimson Desert is an open-world action-adventure game. With an engaging setting and realistic characters, Crimson Desert depicts the story of mercenaries fighting for survival on the expansive continent of Pywel. Pearl Abyss is set to deliver a unique gameplay experience with Crimson Desert and aims for a simultaneous global release on console and PC platforms.”
