Activision Blizzard is once again ready for the biggest games convention in the world: Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, taking place from August 21 to 25.

“With the next-generation of consoles on the horizon, this is obviously an exciting time for gamers. And there’s no better place to share the incredible slate of games we have coming than Gamescom, where our fans can get hands on with the games and really experience them,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. Call of Duty: Ghosts, Destiny and Skylanders: SWAP Force will form Activision‘s Gamescom line-up.

Blizzard will also welcome players with all kinds of stage activities, contest and giveaways. Attendees will be able to play Diablo III (PC and PlayStation 3), playable on console for the first time in Europe, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (PC), playable in public for the first time in Europe, as well as World of Warcraft. More than 600 exhibitors from over 40 countries are expected to attend the trade fair, which is to gather more than 275,000 visitors with its hardware and software novelties.
