Gamescom 2020 has already taken place. According to what the La Nación website mentions, it is the “most important European fair for the video game industry”, since it is the moment when different news for the sector are released.

In this sense, the presentation was made through the Internet, due to the coronavirus pandemic that prevents these conferences from being held. There were several of the most anticipated titles of the future generation of consoles (the PS5 and the Xbox Series X), so we decided to collect the best news.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War

One of the most anticipated and impressive novelties of this entire event. This game will be launched on November 13, which will try to transport us to the Cold War in the early 80's. Therefore, according to what the Kabukis website mentions, it would be a direct sequel to the first Call of Duty : Black Ops from a decade ago.

The cinematic trailer by Activision showed us the impressive graphics that it promises to achieve on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, but also on the current generation of consoles and PC. This can be seen in the figure of Ronald Reagan, president of the United States at that time, in addition to a game dynamic that is the same as ever. 

DOOM Eternal The Ancient Gods

Another of the premieres of the virtual opening of Gamescom 2020. This title will be released on October 20, being a downloadable content of the first part. That is, everything seems to indicate that the war against demons is not over, being a true quality expansion for fans.

According to what Vandal's specialized website mentions, DOOM Eternal is an old-school first-person shooter, which is available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Crash Bandicoot 4 It's About Time

Do you remember Crash Bandicoot? Well, it will have a new installment, which has been excellently received by fans. This fourth edition will go on sale next October 2 on PS4 and Xbox One, being a game designed for those users who enjoyed the classic editions.

According to the Hobbyconsolas medium, the fourth release will have "very 90s levels", in the sense that there will be flashback scenes that will be useful to know the origins of Crash and Coco. Let's remember that, for this game, we will not only be able to control these two characters, but also the villain Neo Cortex himself.

Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart

Finally, we have one of the most anticipated exclusive titles for the PlayStation 5. As mentioned by the Hypertextual medium, the trailer for this installment offers us a “surprising look at the adventure that awaits the two iconic characters”, being also an evaluation of the technical prowess of the new console.

In this case, we must use an artifact, known as the Dimensionator, to open portals that lead to other dimensions . This is why we will see a graphic show, with a high level of detail of the settings, characters and lighting. This title will be available before 2020, that is, when the future PS5 comes out. We are all eager to try them!
