Gamescom is happening throughout the week, and as such gamers can expect a ton of new announcements surrounding highly anticipated titles, as well as new releases from publishers and developers. Nothing beats the excitement surrounding fresh news on upcoming titles, and these are at the center of the five-day major gaming event at the Koelmnesse in Germany. Be sure to stay tuned with us the whole week as we bring you the latest from Gamescom 2019 in the form of the latest trailers, announcements, news and other information drops on all the newest games hitting the market.

THQ Nordic’s steady stream of game announcements for Gamescom 2019 continues, and besides prominent titles like Biomutant, Darksiders Genesis and SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, there’s a lot more set for the rest of the week. Adding to this venerable list of titles is a team-based online multiplayer title with helicopters and drones. Titled Comanche, this game is being developed by Nukklear and will be released for PC in early 2020, first entering an Early Access program. Check out a teaser for the game below.

From the looks of it, Comanche will be heavily objective-based, which could go either way for multiplayer games. A lot of times, most players seem to just keep killing enemies instead of focusing on objectives. As such, it remains to be seen if Comanche can offer actually engaging objectives in order to facilitate a better game experience for everyone. That said, the flying looks really smooth, with there being a variety of ways to tackle different kinds of situations with enemies.

Comanche will feature two main aspects: controlling a technologically advanced version of the Comanche helicopter in dogfights with other pilots, and going smaller scale as you take the reins of its accompanying drone, which facilitates close quarter combat. The game will feature a ton of different helicopter/drone combinations for players to take advantage of, all equipped with different weapons and unique gadgetry.

Comanche will be entering Early Access on the PC in early 2020.

Be sure to stick around for more news on the latest happenings from Gamescom all throughout the week.
