Gamescom, the world’s largest consumer video games fair, officially kicks off this week in Cologne, Germany.

On Monday 11th August 2014, Activision and Sledgehammer Games will be livestreaming, direct from Gamescom, the world premiere of the multiplayer component of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Activision and Sledgehammer Games have been working hard on the next game in the Call of Duty franchise for almost three years. The latest instalment in the popular franchise features the series’ familiar first-person gameplay, stunning “next generation” graphics and an all new story concerning a devastating ‘global event’. It even stars Academy Award winning actor, Kevin Spacey (House of Cards, American Beauty).
