Gamescom 2022 has every video game aficionado rushing to buy the popcorn for opening night, and if you’re wondering what time Gamescom starts or where you can watch the event, we confirm everything you need to know complete with a full schedule guide.

The past three years have been bereft of the annual in-person E3 spectacles we’ve become accustomed to, but Gamescom is set to bring the magic back.

Gamescom is an annual trade fair event for video games held in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany that has been active since 2009. The festival allows a collection of video game developers to showcase upcoming projects to the community and Gamescom has become the world’s largest gaming event to date.
