Xbox at gamescom 2017

With gamescom 2017 coming in less than a week, we hope to see more of everything we love about Xbox, including more of the upcoming Xbox One X. Starting Sunday, August 20, gamescom 2017 kicks off in Cologne, Germany, and Microsoft is set to start things off with a bang with a special Xbox @ gamescom live show on Sunday, August 20, at 9:00pm CEST / 12:00pm PDT.

If you are still reeling from all the Xbox announcements at E3, with the much-anticipated Xbox One X (AKA Project Scorpio) as well as the 42 new games coming to Xbox, Microsoft promises that there will be more in store for Xbox fans.

At gamescom 2017, we will see 27 new playable games for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, including Forza Motorsport 7, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, and Sea of Thieves. On Sunday, August 20, Xbox @ gamescom 2017 live event will kick things off with hosts Xbox’s Graeme Boyd and Xbox Germany’s Maxi Graeff to give you all the latest Xbox One X news and announcements. 

Then on Monday, August 21, Microsoft will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Age of Empires franchise event to take a look at the history of Age of Empires on Windows PC and give fans a look at the beautifully remastered Age of Empires: Definitive Edition

Then on Tuesday, August 22, Xbox is hosting Xbox FanFest again at gamescom 2017. More details on Xbox FanFest will be shared soon. The Xbox Booth at gamescom 2017 will be featuring a hands-on with the Xbox One X for fans that are able to attend the event this year.
