Summer Game Fest, hosted by The Game Awards organizer Geoff Keighley, was first held in 2020 when E3 was also canceled. Then announcements were unveiled throughout the summer. However, in 2021 the event kicked off with a show called Kick Off Live, which, with all sorts of game announcements and trailers, is similar to other similar presentations, such as The Game Awards and the Gamescom: Opening Night Live show. This show will continue again this year.

Keighley has also announced a partnership with IMAX that will allow people in the United States to watch Summer Game Fest and The Game Awards which areĀ  held in December in IMAX theaters.

Presenter Geoff Keighley announced this via social media yesterday. Last year, the show, which kicked off the German game fair, was watched by about ten million people. Every year the show features new images of upcoming games, as well as completely new games announced.

More clarity has also been given about the Gamescom fair itself via a press release. For the time being, the fair will take place physically this year, but as a ‘hybrid’ event. This to take into account the corona virus. Fewer visitors can come to the fair, which this year mainly revolves around playing upcoming games. In addition, there are digital queues, so that people can come to the play session by appointment. There should also be more focus on online streams. Gamescom will be held from August 25-29 this year.
