Though some gaming events are tentatively re-opening to the public, Gamescom is going digital once again in 2021. As was the case last year, the event will have multiple live streams, though details are still emerging beyond the major broadcasts.

Though Nintendo isn’t in ‘attendance’ and doesn’t seem to have any specific plans, a number of big publishers will be making an appearance; here’s hoping for some Switch game details to emerge.

Below we’ve collected all of the details for this year’s event in this Gamescome 2021 guide, including dates, event times and how you go about participating. This guide will be updated as and when new information comes to light, so be sure to check back for more info as we get it.

The main event will undoubtedly be the Opening Night Live, and so far a couple of other major streams have been confirmed. More small presentations are likely to be confirmed closer to the show’s opening.

Though not linked to Nintendo, it’s worth noting that Xbox also has a showcase airing on 24th August at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern / 6pm UK / 7pm CET.

Gamescom 2021 is running over three days, from Wednesday 25th August to Friday 27th August 2021.

A host of game publishers have committed to presenting at Gamescom, likely with games in the major showcases along with smaller streamed shows that are still to be confirmed.
