oin our very own Aoife for a video overview
There's just a week or two to go till Gamescom kicks off in Cologne, Germany. It's Europe's own version of the E3 Expo - notable for its higher quantities of Sauerkraut and lower quantities of sunshine. Aoife and I will be covering the event for OXM. Aoife will also join Microsoft's Graeme "AceyBongos" Boyd and Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb on camera to present a variety of Microsoft briefings, at which we can expect "big surprises".

Microsoft's show begins on 11th August, 18.00 BST or 19.00 CEST, with the first public screening of Advanced Warfare's multiplayer. The main Xbox show briefing will take place on 12th August, at 13.00 BST or 14.00 CEST. Needless to say, you'll be able to watch it all here. For now, here's a teaser featuring the lovely Aoife and her lovely glamorous friends. If you look closely, you might see a sad, tired man in the background holding a coffee. The sad, tired man is me.
