This year Gamescom provided us with a closer look at all the huge titles and anticipated games, and we decided to share a few insights with you. What to expect, when to expect, why to expect!? Check out DMarket’s list of the 5 best games from Gamescom!
The well-known developers of the famous The Witcher games Projekt Red have finally introduced the gameplay demo of Cyberpunk 2077. Actually, it was the same demo which they introduced previously at the E3 event, however that introduction was made behind the curtain, so not everyone was able to check it out. Cyberpunk 2077 brings visuals to a brand new level, providing players with all the tiny details of exterior environments, and we’re gonna bet they’ve never seen something like this in any game before. There are weird looking guys on the streets, there are large neon adverts, and of course there’s a lot of violence. It is more than an exciting shooter, and we can only imagine the money put into the development. Also check the latest 48-minute walkthrough released a few days ago by Projekt Red and see for yourself how awesome this game is.
We have prepared for you a review of Cyberpunk 2077
Dying Light 2
Seeing Dying Light 2 in action was outstanding, It’s a zombie outbreak which proves a great fit for those who can’t live without killing deads on a screen. As with Cyberpunk 2077, Dying Light 2 is a repeat of the demo which was shown at E3. The demo gameplay demonstrates how “choice mechanics” work in the game: for example, the player can “use” a water tower in a game’s level differently, and this usage will enable several different scenarios, which will impact the gaming world, for better or for worse. A player goes up a tower, sees two characters — Jack and Joe. If the player kills them, the Peacekeepers faction can take the tower, clean up the area, and offer free water to survivors, including the player. If the player chooses to make a deal with Jack and Joe, they’ll charge people for the water. Hmmm… You as a player will also receive a profit from that. So the choice is yours.
Life is Strange 2
The award winning Life is Strange series continues with a long-awaited sequel from DONTNOD Entertainment. The Gamescom demo introduces players to the home life of Sean, one of the main characters. Two brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz, 16 and 9, are forced to run away from home after a tragic incident in Seattle. In fear of the police, Sean and Daniel go to Mexico while trying to hide a mysterious supernatural power from everyone. Life is Strange 2 doesn’t follow on directly from the first game, but it‘s a similarly sensitive and well-written account of teen life, and it can move suddenly from sedate suburban patter to moments of extreme crisis. The game is one of the best releases of September 2018.
Battlefield V’s open beta is going to be provided on September 4 for those who pre-order and/or are subscribers of EA’s services, and everyone else will access the game on September 6 on all platforms. The Rotterdam map is going to put you in “a battle fought throughout the streets of Holland where the game’s dynamic physicality and destruction will be on full display.” Grand Operations makes its Battlefield V debut and is “a multiplayer experience across multiple maps and modes that takes players through a powerful narrative journey inspired by historical events,” as stated in the press release. Well, we’re excited! According to the demo video presented at Gamescom, the map is quite raw and aimed to encourage long-range firefights and desperate short range scuffles. WWII is more than suitable for Battlefield, so we’re assuming you can sink in the game for 40 hours, no less.
My Friend Pedro
My Friend Pedro is a shooter fully relying on awesome combos. Here’s you making a jump on a wall to kick a pan into an enemy’s head. Here’s you using a ricochet to kill another one, and this is all wrapped in slow-mo to help you in making needed tricks. The game is more than suitable for mouse and keyboard. Also what is awesome is that you can save and export your brilliant take downs as GIFs. And then put them on Twitter, or Facebook, or whatever. Pretty cool, huh?
