Developer Techland is showing off a game that is very reminiscent of the role playing classic, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The player assumes the role of the hero Ayden, who is supposed to stop an invasion of the undead with a combination of melee weaponry and magic.
The game's elaborately designed environments invite exploration. The player never knows if a reward or an enemy await behind the next bend.
Hellraid is supposed to enter early access this fall.
Heroes of the Storm
Blizzard is developing its very own MOBA. The developer wants to make the genre less complicated and easier for newcomers to get into. For instance, the whole team advances.
Jagged Alliance: Flashback
If you blinked at the wrong time, you could have missed the Jagged Alliance: Flashback presentation. Apparently the developer collected enough money via Kickstarter to make the game, but not enough for an elaborate presentation at Gamescom. It appears that game is not going with some of the more modern trends that several of the other “successors” to the line have relied on. For instance, there’s no real time to be paused, just good old-fashioned turns.
Jagged Alliance: Flashback
This strategy could prove to be successful for Danish developer Full Control. Jagged Alliance still has a lot of loyal fans, and Full Control not only listens to that community, but also wants to capture the feel of the old game.
Lego Batman 3
This game comes out in the third quarter of 2014. We couldn’t really find anything new here, but the price of around $50 still seems appropriate.
The Metro Redux bundle comes out on the 29th of August and contains updated versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. There are supposed to be graphical improvements as well, such as more dynamic lighting effects.
The content stays just like it was. In a post-apocalyptic world, people flee into the Moscow Metro, where they face many dangers, such as mutants.
Minecraft: Xbox One Edition
There’s really not a whole lot left to say about the mega-hit that is Minecraft. It’s coming to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 featuring Full HD resolution and 60 frames per second. It also features pickaxes, crawlers and lots and lots of blocks.
NBA 2K15 will come out on 10/10/2014 and take the basketball game to the latest generation of consoles.

Wheres Star Citizen?Reply
Ugh, not only a photo slideshow article, but one with multiple slides for each game. Giving up after the first 10 slides or so.Reply
Can't stand the slideshow "articles" on ZDNet, not going to start reading them here...Reply
Wheres Star Citizen?
Technically, SC was not "at" gamescom. The keynote Chris gave was a separate event. (Although there was a brief interview at gamescom he gave.)
Oh AquaNox 3 is in making how awesome I had no idea.Reply
EA moba... hide your wallets.
