The newest entry in this ice hockey sports game franchise offers even more realistic graphics, and is supposed to further integrate the player into the game by creating extra playable sequences, such as two players pushing and shoving each other around on the ice.
Nosgoth is a PvP shooter where humans and vampires fight bloody battles in an apocalyptic world.
The players fight ferocious battles against each other, and can alternate between playing human and vampire characters. The game should enter open beta this winter, and will be a Free2Play title.
This PS4 exclusive title is an action-adventure with shooter elements that are supposed to provide a movie-like experience, so it'll be strictly linear, of course.
The current generation graphics are very impressive, creating a very noticeable difference versus the graphical capabilities of the last console generation.
Pillars of Eternity
With about 50 hours worth of playing time, Pillars of Eternity is supposed to be a real heavyweight along the lines of Icewind Dale.
Project CARS is shaping up to be a really hot title for fans of the racing game genre. The game's fantastic graphics and great sense of speed are very persuasive elements indeed.
The developers have also integrated weather very well. For example, the loss of traction in the rain is very noticeable, and the blinding sun can easily lead to a missed turn.
Risen 3: Titan Lords
The newly released Risen 3: Titan Lords continues its predecessor’s pirate setting.
Those leaving the beaten path and large booths behind could find some smaller role playing games developed with RPG Maker. These are certainly worth a look, especially for anyone who likes free, and often excellent, classic RPGs.

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

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
