Booking my flights now.

Xbox has given eager Gamescom attendees a better idea of its presence at this year’s event, revealing the content it’ll be bringing along and the sheer size and scope of the activities on offer.

Touting the largest booth it’s ever brought to Gamescom, Xbox says it’ll have over 150 gaming stations featuring 30 titles at the show, along with a 300-seat theatre, photo opportunities, and Xbox FanFest action. Of the games featured, 25 will be playable for show attendees, including the likes of Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, Payday 3, Persona 5 Tactica, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty and – somewhat surprisingly given it’s been a little radio silent lately – S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2.

As for its heavy-hitting first party titles, Starfield and Forza Motorsport, these won’t be playable on the show floor but will have exclusive theatre presentations running throughout for Gamescom-goers to check out.

For those not able to make the jaunt over to Germany for the expo, there’ll be three days of live streamed deep dives, gameplay and developer interviews, and for those attending who need extra help, Xbox has promised that all areas of the booth are wheelchair accessible, with adjustable height demo stations for select titles, Xbox Adaptive Controllers available and multiple American Sign Language (ASL) and German Sign Language (DGS) interpreters on hand along with sensory aids and a quiet room for anyone who needs them.

Gamescom is taking place at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany from August 23rd to August 27th, and tickets to the event for anyone willing to get themselves on a very long and expensive flight are on sale now. Day tickets for Thursday, Friday and Sunday are 27 EUR each, which Saturdays are 36 EUR, and various discounted or family package passes are also available here.

Gamescom has a lot to prove this year with one of its biggest competitors in terms of sheer size and volume of content and audience being E3, which was sadly cancelled for 2023 due to a number of challenges. A fair few major developers and publishers have already confirmed their attendance, including Microsoft and Bethesda, Nintendo, Amazon Games, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Focus Entertainment, Hoyoverse, Netflix, Ubisoft and tons more.
