Geoff Keighley and his Gamescom jamboree unveiled dozens of new PC games this evening as part of his Gamescom Opening Night Live stream, and we’ve gathered up every last trailer into one handy post. Whether you missed the stream or just want a handy recap of what went down, here’s everything you need to know from Gamescom’s Opening Night Live bonanza.
You can catch up on the stream here if you feel like re-living the event as it happened, but you’ll find every new game announcement and all the important trailers in our list below. In the pre-show, we got new trailers for Bandai Namco’s anime adventure Scarlet Nexus, scary firefighter ’em up Quantum Error, and the playground mode for Codemasters’ soon-to-be-released Dirt 5, which is coming out on October 16th, but in the show proper there were over 35 games shown off. From an in-depth look at Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and the next Destiny 2 expansion to what’s going on with Fall Guys Season 2, these are all the new PC games announced during Gamescom Opening Night Live.
Gamescom Opening Night Live kicked off with a new look at Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

We also got a new story trailer for the campaign setting up the game’s main enemy, Perseus.
A new game from Reflector, Unknown 9 puts you the shoes of street urchin Haroona, a young girl from Kolkata in India who has mysterious powers that let her see into the future. Unknown 9 isn’t just going to be a game, either. There’s a novel, podcast, a comic book series and more. You can find out all about it on the Unknown 9 website.
Doom Eternal’s campaign is getting an expansion in the form of The Ancient Gods: Part I, which will see the Doom Slayer take on all manner of new beasties in hell, underwater and more new locations.

Following the success of its Portal spin-off, Headup Games’ physics-based bridge build ’em up is getting a new Walking Dead spin-off. Not much was shown of the game except a very brief glimpse of some zombies ambling across one of its titular bridges, but our guess is that you’ll be building bridges against the clock to save your band of survivors.
Everyone’s favourite pair of animal detectives are back in business. Developer Happy Giant only showed us a very brief glimpse of the game in action, and even suggested that it might be coming to VR headsets, too.

We got an in-depth look at one of the missions from Squardron’s story mode during Opening Night Live, as well as a very quick peek at some VR gameplay.

Godfall – new trailer
Godfall is a looter-slasher coming this holiday season, and today we got a glimpse at one of the new characters you’ll be slicing and dicing with come Christmas. It was only a very brief glimpse, admittedly, but I quite dig their cool insectoid-y mask.
