Activision is hoping to build up more excitement around next-gen by confirming that Destiny will also be at Gamescom alongside Call of Duty: Ghosts in the Activision booth, located in Hall 7.1 and Skylanders SWAP Force will be featured in
SONY Computer Entertainment Deutschland booth, located in 7.1 in the Koelnmesse GmbH Exhibition Centre in Cologne, Germany from 21st – 25th August, 2013.
The Activision booth will feature an interactive “Show Mode” experience that will display video and gameplay footage from Call of Duty: Ghosts, Destiny and Skylanders SWAP Force in a stunning panoramic 190° cinematic theatre experience.
To match the epic feel of Destiny, the demo-theatre will be the biggest ever built in Gamescom history – 72ft in length, 43ft wide, and the height of a 3-storey house at 26ft high and with 192 seats and will showcase a seven-player live-demo set in Old Russia, bringing the buzz and experience from E3 straight to German fans for the first time. The theatre will be accompanied by a custom-built ‘Fallen’ statue, offering visitors to the booth a chance to create and upload their very own Destiny photo moment and the GameStop info booth will be offering limited edition Destiny t-shirts. Fans will also be able to get their hands on a series of exclusive Destiny trading cards by tracking down the giveaway points across the show, which includes the GameStop info booth and the Destiny theatre. On the first day of the consumer show, Activision and Bungie will release a new ViDoc entitled “Out Here in the Wild” that gives viewers behind-the-scenes access to the creators of Destiny’s rich universe.
Sadly no one from ThisisXbox will be attending Gamescom this year, but you’ll see us next year so feel free to pelt eggs at us for not going in 2013.
