All the video from Gamecom 2016 in one place.
Note: This article will be updated periodically throughout the day as new trailers and information become available.
Although Gamescom 2016 doesn’t officially start until August 17, 2016 that hasn’t prevented the party from starting early. Game publishers from around the world have begun dropping gameplay footage and new trailers for the games they’re showing off at the show this year. This is a collection of those game trailers and gameplay footage we have discovered so far, plus a few bits of news. I will be adding these in the reverse order from which they are discovered so the newest trailers will be featured at the top.
Star Wars Battlefront – EA announced that the X-Wing expansion for Playstation VR will be a movie tie-in for the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One. James Svensson, a producer for Battlefront, said “Rogue One is in the same time period the base game covers, so to be relevant in the ever-evolving Star Wars universe we’ve since been able to work with Lucasfilm to make the connection here.” Svensson also indicated that players will end up fighting a Star Destroyer with “a belly full of TIE fighters.”
Mass Effect Trilogy – EA Studios Executive Vice President Patrick Söderlund indicated that EA may be relaxing it’s stance on remasters. “What’s changed is that there is proof in the market that people want it, maybe more than there was when we spoke [in 2015]. There were some that did it before, but I think there is even more clear evidence that this is something that people really want.”
Heroes of the Storm – Zarya, a popular character from Overwatch, is being added as a playable character in Heroes of the Storm. Zarya will be a ranged warrior similar to Rexxar with all of the same abilities she has in Overwatch.
