Gamescom 2021, The Opening Night, will have its Livestream tonight. Geoff Keighley will be hosting it, and the event will bring in more than 30 games and several other exciting announcements.

Before the pandemic had started, the event was held in Cologne, Germany.

The event hosted several hundreds of thousands of fans of gaming. This was very similar to the style of event that E3 had hosted.

However, Gamescom 2021 will be much easier and cheaper to get in than E3 for all ordinary fans. The event will also come again in 2022 in the physical format.

Currently, the entire focus of the event management team is focused on the online part. Geoff Keighley will be hosting the Livestream event tonight.

Geoff Keighley has also hosted and organized another couple of events: The Game Awards in December and the Summer Game Fest during the E3 event.

He will also be hosting and similarly organizing the Open Night Live. There will be several latest trailers of new games along with gameplay debuts.

Additionally, fans will get to see short interviews and a few musical performances in between.

When will Gamescom 2021 start, and how long will it run?

If you are interested in watching Gamescom 2021, you need to tune in to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or Twitch. The show will start at 6:30 PM BST for the pre-show ceremony.

The proper Livestream will begin precisely at 7 PM BST.

Till now, a proper schedule or when the event will end has not been announced. But Keighley has given us a hint that the show will last for a maximum of two hours. The ending time will be somewhere close to 9 PM.

What are the possible games that we can see at this event?

Gamescom 2021 will bring in over 30 games according to the promises that they have made. However, the titles have not been confirmed as of now. So the mystery is still there in the fans of the event.

We are sure that we will get to see the footage of Call of Duty: Vanguard. We might see the other probable games are Death Stranding Director’s Cut, the newly designed looks of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Far Cry 6, and Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania.

The question that is building the mystery to an even greater extent is the news of Halo Infinite. Fans are expecting a new gameplay teaser, but we can’t be sure.

Several sources and leaks state that Halo Infinite will be launching on the 8th of December, 2021. However, there are no confirmations on this as the developers have mentioned nothing as of now.

There will be a new Saints Row game, as announced by Deep Silver. In Gamescom 2021, Ubisoft will be putting its major focus on Far Cry 6.

Bandai Namco might showcase some games, but it is not clear which game it will showcase. The expected game is the Elden Ring, whose trailer has already been released by Geoff Keighley in Summer.

What fans can expect from PlayStation is still unclear because they had little connection with Gamescom for the past couple of years.

As far as we can guess, they have been included in the Gamescom 2021 mainly because of Death Stranding. Stay connected with MediaScrolls to know more about the games and the new debuts in this event.
