The Opening Night Live stream, hosted by The Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley, was arguably the meatiest single digital gaming convention this year, running for well over two hours, with nearly no breaks in between. Festivities kick off Thursday, August 27 at 11:00 PT / 14:00 ET / 19:00 BST.
Among other things, as part of Opening Night Live, an announcement is expected related to Turrican - a series of 2D action games developed by the German studio Factor 5 in the 90s of the last century. We've embedded a link below, so you can watch right on this page.
The keynote will take two hours and - oddly - stream from Los Angeles, not Cologne, Germany.
NM records 5 new virus deaths, 205 new cases
There are now 5,372 cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in B.C. after health officials announced 68 new cases Thursday. Outbreaks are ongoing in 10 long-term care or assisted-living facilities and two acute care facilities.
2020's long summer of game announcements and shows might be starting to draw to a close, but one of the biggest annual events in the game industry calendar is yet to come.
We saw an extended look at gameplay from Ratchet And Clank: Rift Apart on PS5, as well as some details on when the game will be launching. The titles presented ranged from AAA titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War, Dragon Age 4, and Star Wars: Squadrons, to indies, such as Surgeon Simulator 2, 12 Minutes, and the hugely-popular Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Games, Xbox Game Studios, "and more!" are on the list, so the show's not one to miss.
Prospective viewers should be aware that even though the livestream celebrates a German event, the audio will be in English.
