GAMESCOM 2013: Gli appuntamenti

Ogni anno Gamescom assume sempre maggior spessore nel panorama videoludico, si svolgerà dal 20 al 25 agosto, e grazie alla vicinanza con il lancio delle console nextgen mai come questa volta assume un’importanza primaria.

Viene organizzata dalla Bundesverband Interaktive Unterhaltungssoftware (German Federal Association of Interactive Entertainment Software), che rappresenta le tredici principali compagnie di videogiochi del pianeta, tra le quali spiccano Sony, NintendoMicrosoftActivision, Electronic Arts e alte.

A parte la possibilità che vengano comunicate le date di uscita ufficiali di PS4 e Xbox ONE, a generare attesa è proprio Sony che ha promesso di presentare nuove IP destinate a PS4, ma anche Microsoft che presenterà un nuovo titolo AAA, e che ha molto da chiarire sul controverso XBOX one e sulle politiche per lo sviluppo di giochi indipendenti. EA ripresenterà in forma più completa i sui suoi brand come Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, e forse qualche sorpresa come Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Nintendo non terrà una conferenza, ma sarà ben presente con i giochi in prova presso i rispettivi stand, ci si aspetta quindi nuove parti giocate di titoli molto attesi come Super Mario 3D world e Mario Kart 8 per WiiU.
