The Gamescom video game show took place in Cologne this August, letting gamers enjoy previews of some of 2016’s most highly-anticipated games. From the World War I military shooter Battlefield 1 to Bethesda’s eagerly awaited first-person action game Prey, there was plenty for video games fans to enjoy in Cologne this summer. So without further ado, here follows a list of the top 5 video games seen at this year’s Gamescom show in Germany.
1. Battlefield 1
The game’s Gamescom trailer proves that early 20th century warfare doesn’t mean Battlefield 1 will be slow-paced or boring, as it will feature frenetic cavalry charges, biplane dogfights, trench warfare and some intense-looking tank battles. Multiplayer matches will also feature dynamic weather according to DICE, with fog and rain limiting visibility on the battlefield, and sandstorms making long-range combat and flight almost impossible on the game’s desert maps. All in all, Battlefield 1 is certainly one military shooter to look out for when it’s released later this year.
Release date: October 21, 2016. Available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
