Guten tag! Gamescom, the world’s largest gaming event, officially opens its doors tomorrow. But the action begins today with PlayStation’s Gamescom press conference. And lucky you — you can watch live starting at 10:00am Pacific Time (1:00pm Eastern) today with our dedicated livestream!
A quick note: much like E3 is targeted to the US audience and Tokyo Game Show is targeted at Japan, the gamescom press conference is primarily aimed at European gamers, so please keep that in mind as you watch. Not everything mentioned or shown today will necessarily apply to those of us in North America. We’ll post on all appropriate things for the North American market, however, just as we always do.
If you don’t see the video above this sentence, please refresh your page. It should then appear.
At the conclusion of the livestream, refresh PlayStation.Blog to see game trailers and in-depth details from many of the titles revealed on stage. There will be a lot of content to take in, so consider checking out our dedicated gamescom13 Blog tag so you don’t miss a thing! And we’ll keep the Gamescom train rolling all week long with hands-on previews, announcements, and interviews straight from the show floor. It should be a good (and busy!) week — please let us know your favorite picks in the comments! If you happen to miss the live show, no worries: the entire conference will play on a loop for the next 24 hours or so.
After the conference, stick around to see a live panel discussion featuring Worldwide Studios president (and Treasure Park master) Shuhei Yoshida, Beyond: Two Souls director David Cage and Assassin’s Creed writer Darby McDevitt for a lively discussion around storytelling and narrative development in game design. Should be a good one — don’t miss it!
