With Gamescom 2020 looming at the end of August (27 – 30 August 2020), we’re excited to see which games they will announce, as well as some exciting updates. We just received news from astragon Entertainment that they will also be at the event, which we’re really excited about. It really makes us wish that we could attend the gaming conference.
You may remember astragon Entertainment from some games we reviewed, such as Construction Simulator 3 and our upcoming review for Bus Simulator. We are extremely looking forward to their Gamescom 2020 news, such as Bus Simulator 21. Wait… let me not spoil it for you.
Here is the officially press release for how astragon welcomes fans to its digital exhibition at Gamescom 2020.
Gamescom 2020 astragon Entertainment Press Release
Game fans, developers and exhibitors alike have been looking forward to one of the highlights in the game industry calendar for months. It is now official that Gamescom 2020 will take place in digital form from August 27 – August 30, 2020, offering gameplay live streams, daily shows and online demos to an international gaming audience. The team of German publisher astragon will of course also take part and wow visitors with a digital exhibition including interesting live streams and a hands-on demo on Gamescom 2020 now.
After accessing the astragon landing page, visitors will be able to browse at their leisure and discover the latest facts and trailers of the following games:
Bus Simulator 21 for PC, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One will invite players to North America and onto the streets and highways of a large US metropolis. Here, they will encounter many new license partners like double-decker specialist Alexander Dennis and the future topic of e-mobility in urban transport. There will be more news at Gamescom 2020.
A different kind of future will await astragon visitors at Gamescom 2020 in the space strategy game Drone Swarm for PC by developer stillalive studios. Players will take control of the mothership Argo and its 32,000 drones after the earth has been destroyed in an alien attack. As humanity’s last hope, they go on a dangerous search for a new home planet and encounter other space-faring alien races.
Drones are also a good keyword for the next game in the astragon portfolio at Gamescom 2020. While players in Liftoff: Drone Racing for PlayStation®4, and Xbox One will only control one quadcopter at a time, this one will fly all the more rapidly! In exciting races, aspiring drone pilots will attempt to climb the ranks from backyard amateur to league pro. Of course, players will be able to configure their drones to suit their individual needs and meet the challenges of their next race head-on.
How about some relaxation on sunny alpine pastures after all of this excitement? In this case, fairgoers should definitely not miss stopping by a true icon of the simulation game genre. Landwirtschafts-Simulator 19 by Swiss developer and publisher GIANTS Software will present its new Alpine Farming Expansion for PC with a new Alpine map as well as vehicles and machines suitable for this special terrain by a diverse range of brand partners such as Aebi, Lindner, Pöttinger, Rigitrac, SIP and more.
French publisher Microids will also show some interesting games at Gamescom 2020, which will be distributed by astragon Sales & Services in the German language market: The remake of the iconic cel-shading first person shooter XIII (Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, Xbox One), Asterix and Obelix XXL – Romastered (Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, Xbox One), and The Bluecoats – North & South (Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, Xbox One) will delight gamers of all ages.
Game fans will of course also be able to experience their favorite games in action. Visitors can take a look into the gameplay of Bus Simulator 21, Drone Swarm, Liftoff: Drone Racing and the Landwirtschafts-Simulator 19 Alpine Farming Expansion via live stream. Here, they will also receive some special insights and explanations directly by the developers of each project. A detailed streaming schedule on the astragon Gamescom now page will make sure that no one misses out on their favorite game presentation.
Gamescom 2020 would not be a real gamescom without players having the opportunity to test some games themselves! At astragon, Sci-Fi fans will be able to jump into gripping space battles with the demo of Drone Swarm that will be available on the official Steam page of the game for the whole duration of the show. Drone Swarm will also be part of this year’s Indie Arena, where players can visit the game’s own virtual booth.
We wish you a fantastic Gamescom 2020!
