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.

The upcoming sci-fi shooter Disintegration from publisher Private Division (Kerbal Space Program, The Outer Worlds) and developer studio V1 Interactive (co-founded by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto) has been unveiled during the Gamescom 2019 Opening Night Live Show. It has confirmed a 2020 release date on multiple platforms.

In addition to the announcement and trailer, an overview of the game was also released. Set in Earth’s near future where extreme climates, overpopulation, food shortages, and a global pandemic has led to nations collapsing and pushed humankind to the brink of extinction. To prevent this, scientists have developed technology that allows the human brain to be removed and encased inside a robotic armature. This process is known as Integration.

For decades this was a good thing until some of the Integrated saw their state as the new form of humanity and called themselves the Rayonne. This results in a global war between the post-humanist Integrated and those who don’t share their views, Integrated or not. Players will assume control of Romer, an Integrated character who is rebelling towards a future where people can be human again.

The game’s trailer featured a bit of gameplay, showcasing a first-person view while commandeering a mech. Disintegration will have a single-player campaign where players can command their squad, or choose from one of three exciting multiplayer battles which are team-based. No confirmation has been made yet as to whether this involves PvE or PvP play.

Disintegration will release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in 2020.

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