Taking place every year in Cologne, Gamescom is one of the world’s largest consumer-facing gaming conventions. However despite its large crowds, not everyone is able to make it all the way to Germany year after year to get hands-on with the latest games.

Gamescom 2017 opened on August 22 and will run until to August 26, but its livestreams kicked off as early as August 20. To make it easy for you to keep on top of the show, we’ve put together a chronological guide to all of the livestreams that are scheduled and instructions for how to watch them.
