Microsoft’s Biggest Ever Booth Presence at Gamescom 2023

Get ready for Microsoft’s grand showcase at Gamescom 2023! And while you won’t get your hands on Starfield or Forza Motorsport just yet, there’s still plenty to be excited about.

First up, let’s talk exclusives. Both Starfield and Forza Motorsport will be featured on the show floor, but in an exclusive theater setting. So, get your popcorn ready for some epic presentations!

But fear not, because there are some amazing games that you can actually play. Towerborne, the upcoming game from the creators of Banner Saga, Stoic, will be making its playable debut. And that’s not all! Stalker 2, the long-awaited title from Ukranian studio GSC Game World, and Payday 3 will also be available for you to experience firsthand.

But wait, there’s more! Microsoft’s bumper booth will have a staggering total of 25 playable games. From the intense mecha battles of Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon, to the futuristic world of Cyberpunk 2077’s expansion, Phantom Liberty, there’s something for everyone. And let’s not forget about Persona 5 Tactica and Jusant from the creative minds at Don’t Nod.

Now, let’s take a look at what Microsoft is bringing from its own first-party studios. While the line-up may be a bit thinner, we can still expect to see some exciting showcases from Microsoft Flight Simulator and The Elder Scrolls Online. Buckle up and prepare for astonishing visuals and immersive experiences.

Unfortunately, Microsoft’s eye-catching 2024 releases won’t be making an appearance at Gamescom. But hey, let’s not dwell on that. Instead, let’s focus on the fact that Starfield won’t be playable at the event. Don’t fret though, there’s still a lot more to uncover about this highly anticipated game.

Mark your calendars, because Gamescom will be taking place in Cologne, Germany, from the 23rd to the 27th of August. It’s the ultimate gaming extravaganza, with over 300,000 enthusiastic attendees flooding the event every year. And speaking of excitement, remember that Starfield will be launching just two weeks after the event, on the 6th of September. Get ready to blast off into a new adventure!
