The Gamescom 2019 is still underway, but it has already put all its meat on the grill in terms of new video game announcements. In this special, we recommend ten titles that have been presented at the fair for the first time, and which you should not lose sight of because of its attractiveness.
The Gamescom is a very important fair for many reasons. Now that the E3 seems to begin to decline slightly from the media focus, especially after a last somewhat decaffeinated edition, the German event not only consolidates itself as the most important that can be enjoyed in Europe, but is also a true titan of the news of the video game in the whole world. Obviously, his prism is not as large as the one held in Los Angeles, but with episodes as blunt as this year, he can begin to think of becoming an alternative for the future for those who are also looking for something more than the blockbusters.
The key? Your ads some of the most relevant companies have taken advantage of these days to present gameplay of their most anticipated proposals for the coming months. However, it has also been the place chosen by many teams to put forward other proposals that may not be so dedicated to making wasteful collections, but they can treasure a huge quality and very good and really original ideas to try to offer something fresh to the Current video game scene. A current scene overloaded with multiplayer shooters where it is the loot that matters and, unfortunately, less concerned with seeking to create greater diversity.
In this context, and with many studies wishing to gain a foothold with imagination and ingenuity by flag, these are the 10 most prominent video game ads that Gamescom 2019 has left us …
Comanche – The Return of a Classic
- PC – Released in 2020
- Action and helicopters
- Developed by Nukklear Digital Minds
Within the huge range of intellectual properties that THQ Nordic has right now, and which are little less than countless, the resurrection of a video game from the past is striking: Comanche.

A release from the past, which seeks to adapt to the new times.

Humankind – A New Contestant for the Strategy

If it sounds like Kerbal Space Program you already know what to expect, and if you don’t have one of the great surprises of recent years at hand. The most peculiar of the space simulators is back, and it does so with the surprising seriousness and depth of its predecessor, but also with its hooligan spirit and its friendly protagonists. A game that is a real bottomless pit of hours, and that demands but also rewards.
Little Nightmares 2 – Recurring Nightmare
- PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch – Released in 2020
- Developed by Tarsier Studios
The great taste that left us the original Little Nightmares of 2017 wants to take this time a step further with its terrifying second part. Already the first installment was a video game that called attention to its artistic direction and its careful visual and playable style, but the second part accompanies six of a new character although he retakes the oppressive feeling that there is no one who can take us out of his nightmare.
Orcs Must Die 3 – In War against the Orcs
- Stadia – Launch in 2020

The Stadia event left us some important things in terms of news, but one of the shocking ones was the fact that Orcs Must Die 3 will be exclusive to Google’s streaming game platform. The video game still has something distant its launch, is to be determined in the year 2020, but the premiere of one of the legends of the genre Defense of Torres is great news for future users of this service.

The classic Port Royale saga returns to the load with a new installment of its management and civil strategy. It is a franchise where we must erect a commercial empire in the Caribbean Sea, and all this in the always fascinating and evocative colonial era, and fighting commercially with powers such as Spain, England, France or the Netherlands. Control a whole fleet of ships back then, and take on sophisticated turn-based battles.

- Developed by Darril Arts and Stormind Games
After surprising us with Remothered Tormented Fathers, Darril Arts and Stormind Games return to the fray with a new horror game that they play as a sequel.

With campaign, customizable sandbox mode and even several multiplayer options, it promises hours of entertainment for a while.
The Touryst – The Nintendo Indie World Star
- Switch – Released in November 2019
- Action and adventure

The great representative of the Indie World is probably this The Touryst. A game with a very careful aesthetic that comes from the creators of Fast RMX and that bets on action and adventures in a colorful world that keeps some aesthetic reminiscences with Minecraft. Charismatic characters and a journey full of exploration, challenges and distractions of all kinds are the keys to this fascinating journey.
