Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty's Playable Version at Gamescom

The August gamescom fair promises to be really interesting. There will be a lot of goodies from Microsoft for event attendees, the company bringing playable versions of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty and STALKER 2 to Cologne, among other things.

The classic formula of game fairs seems to be slowly fading away. This has been proven by the organizers of E3, who have abandoned this year's event. As a consolation, we are left with gamescom, which is held every year during the summer holiday season in Cologne, Germany.

During the several days of the event, major developers from around the world share materials and information about their productions. Visitors to the event have a chance not only to learn about important industry announcements, but also to try out upcoming titles.

This year's edition of the European gaming fest promises to be particularly attractive due to Microsoft's confirmed presence at the show.

"We’re excited to meet Xbox players at gamescom in Cologne, Germany this August, with fan experiences that are bigger and better than ever!," reads an excerpt from the announcement on the Xbox website.

Exclusive demonstrations

From the information Microsoft provided, gamescom will feature exclusive demonstrations of games such as Starfield, Forza Motorsport and Ara: History Untold. What's more, players will be able to try out the action RPG Towerborne for the first time and see the latest content for The Elder Scrolls Online and Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Playable versions

The company also announced that more than 25 third-party partner titles will be ready for the event. Among them there will be playable versions of STALKER 2 and the Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty DLC. Here are some selected productions:

  1. STALKER 2
  2. PayDay 3
  3. Jusant
  4. Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon
  5. Party Animals
  6. Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty
  7. Under the Waves
  8. Persona 5

ID@Xbox's 10th anniversary

This year's gamescom will also celebrate the round tenth anniversary of the ID@Xbox program. In connection with this, in the dedicated zone you will be able to play, among others:

  1. Lightyear Frontier
  2. The Lamplighter's League
  3. SteamWorld Build

The full list of titles can be found here.

The gamescom 2023 trade show will take place from August 23-27. For those who will not be able to be present at the event, Microsoft will prepare a special series of broadcasts from the Xbox booth. They will be available to follow on the company's channels on YouTube, Twitch and social networks such as Facebook.

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
