Gamescom hits Cologne this August and the list of companies attending contains the usual suspects (Sony, Microsft etc) and Valve. The Portal 2 developers were M.I.A. at E3 this year so what have they got hidden up their collective sleeves for Gamescom?
Portal 2 DLC? More Half Life? A cheese and ham sandwich? Something brand new? Who knows, but obviously they have something to shout about if they are attending.
This years Gamescom has Great Britain as a partner. Olaf Wolters, Managing Director of the German Trade Association of Interactive Entertainment Software, has said:
With its trendsetting regional economic policies, which recognise and support games as one of the supporting pillars of the cultural and creative industry, as well as its exceptionally dynamic video game development landscape, Great Britain will certainly make its mark at this year’s Gamescom.
