Let’s dive into some of the awesome booths at Gamescom.
Gamescom 2022 Booths
Booths are important at Gamescom because they give companies and developers a chance to show off their new products and upcoming titles.
They also provide a place for gamers to meet up, buy unique game collectables/merch and socialize. Gamescom is one of the biggest gaming conventions in the world, so it’s no surprise that booths play a significant role in the event.
Some of the most popular booths at gamescom are the ones for upcoming AAA titles. These are usually packed with people eager to get their hands on the latest demos and trailers. Other popular booths include those for independent developers and small studios. These usually have a more relaxed atmosphere, and they’re a great place to discover new games.
The upcoming survival horror game developed by Striking Distance Studios is on our radar!
An action-adventure experience of epic proportions.
New Tales from Borderland
It’s not a typical booth, but a whole New Tales from Borderland-themed bistro cafe! The booth concept perfectly depicts that the game points to humour and wit. That is what makes it admirable among fans.
Beautiful graphics of the new game Sonic Frontiers build up to bittersweet nostalgia of Sonic’s old-school gameplay, which meets fans’ expectations as Gamescom shows.
Goat Simulator 3
Still funny and goofier!
Lies of P
Souls-like, but add here the curious style of the setting. The unique and beautiful concepts are what gaming fans are always craving. Same thing as with the Bloodborne game.
Genshin Impact 3.0
A game that keeps better and better. Fans of the game get what they want with every update, what has made the game series so successful.
The upcoming action role-playing game developed by WB Games Montréal looks like it packs a punch.
A new game by the Sabnautica creator. An interesting fact is that a custom graphic editor is incorporated into the game as a part of the whole experience of painting figurines.
Looking for ultimate freedom in an open-world game? This one seems to be made just for you.
