The Future Games Show is back for Gamescom 2021 after its record-breaking E3 2021 event. The E3-focused show reached over three million live viewers and 35 million post-show views, so be sure to tune in to see what’s in store during Gamescom.

More than 40 games will be shown, from publishers including Team17, Koch Media, Tripwire Interactive and Frontier Developments. Better yet, if you’re a fan of Resident Evil Village, the show will be co-hosted by two of the game’s voice actors: Maggie Robertson, who plays Lady Dimitrescu, and Aaron LePlante, who voices The Duke.

“I'm delighted to be presenting the Future Games Show on August 26 with my Resident Evil Village co-star Aaron LaPlante!”, said Robertson. “There are some incredible games featured in the show and I can't wait to show you all what's in store for this year and beyond.”

"As we start to move into the 'new normal' it's incredible to think all the games you're playing now were developed, at least in part, in people's bedrooms, kitchens, and home offices,” said LePlante. “On August 26, myself and Maggie will be showing you what's still to come in 2021 and what to expect in 2022 and beyond. They haven't told me much, but from what I've seen so far there's something that will interest all of you. See you live for the Future Games Show.”

The Future Games Show will feature expanded ‘Virtual Show Floor Booths’, which let gamers access a wide array of demos that you can play from the comfort of your own home.
