Gamescom Opening Night Live Reveals All

Gamescom brings a NEW meaning to gaming and fills us with excitement and anticipation every year. This year is no different. If anything, we would argue that this year has risen the bar – with game reveals of; 2K – Borderlands 3, WWE2K20, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding, as well as new releases.

But before we get into the games we know and already love, we want to just cover and appreciate properly all the new announcements that were revealed at Opening Night Live.


Erica: An Interactive Thriller

A PlayStation 4 exclusive live-action thriller that allows you to shape the destiny of Erica by choosing her story and path, was announced back in 2017 for PlayLink (a system where multiple players can use their phones to control a game) is now available on the PlayStation Store for $9.99.


While it may no longer be a PlayLink game, but a controlled multi-narrative story that can be played by either a standard controller or a custom Erica Mobile App.

The Story

You’re in the middle of a life – long murder mystery.

Erica is a young woman who has found herself thrust in the middle of a murder mystery that’s connected to her family’s history and the traumatic events that impacted her childhood.
You now have to decide for her – what is fact and what is fiction? Find the truth and discover the real story that ties the past and present together.

Kerbal Space Program 2

Private Division shared with us all last night at Gamescom Opening Night Live; a BRAND NEW title that will be launched in 2020, following on the successful Kerbal Space Program (KSP) Spacecraft building and flight simulation game. That’s right – it’s Kerbal Space Program 2.

The cinematic trailer showed us that KSP2 has been designed to demonstrate to us what a modern and next-generation space exploration looks like. The game itself uses next-gen engines, parts, and fuel so that you can explore even further reaches of space with interstellar flight.


But it’s not just Private Division who are behind this futuristic masterpiece! Star Theory and Squad have also been involved with the development.

Yes, there is still a little bit of a wait to play. But once the game takes off – you will be able to play it on PC, Xbox One and PS4.


Sega and Amplitude Studios have teamed up to create a Strategy game known as; Humankind – which will release for the PC in 2020.

In Humankind, players will progress from the Neolithic era to the modern age as they create their own civilization while city – building and focusing on warfare. Yes, it is fair to say that this game could be compared to others.


However, in this gameplay – players are given a way to combine aspects of multiple cultures and nations. Even though you start as Romans – you can evolve into Vikings or Egyptians and will include 60 cultures to play with.

Little Nightmares II

A sequel to the indie platform that gave us goosebumps – joining Six at the end of her escape of the first game, you will see her joining up with a new second character named; Mono.

Explore the outside world and enter the Signal Tower which is the main area of the story. But that’s not all that is new! You can also enjoy the new combat mechanic that goes alongside the puzzle platform. The trailer that was dropped at Gamescom has definitely got us all very excited to play, especially with Mono and Six going up against a hunter and some “sadistic teachers”.


Even though there has been no release date yet set, it has been said it will release in 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
