Wargaming today announced its presence at gamescom 2013, the world’s largest trade fair for interactive entertainment to be held at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany, from August 21-25, 2013.
Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi said:
“Last year Wargaming took gamescom by storm with a massive booth, great giveaways and hands-on opportunities with World of Tanks and World of Warplanes. This year we’re going even bigger with the debut of World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition and a multitude of eSports related events that will make every day of the show extremely memorable.”
Wargaming will be pulling out all the stops with a 700 square meter booth located in Hall 8.1, Stand A-030. There, gamescom attendees will be entertained by live stage shows, take part in live developer QAs, and get their chance to see and play World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition. Wargaming will also be giving visitors the opportunity to walk home with amazing prizes and gifts, including high-end gaming PCs from Alienware, as well as peripherals from Razer and Logitech.
Fans of eSports will be able to take part in amateur tournaments, or watch the pros prove their mettle in a number of professional level competitions. The WCG 2013 National Finals for World of Tanks will also be held at the Wargaming booth Thursday and Friday, while the Wargaming.net League Season Finals will be held at partner ESL booth.
Zombie Studios has also announced that it will be showing off Blacklight: Retribution on Playstation 4 this year at Gamescom. An intensely fast-paced first-person shooter, Blacklight: Retribution currently has over 2 million registered users on PC, and in March of this year Zombie Studios acquired the worldwide console rights for the title to bring it to Playstation 4 at the launch of the console.
Presentations will be held at the Sony booth in the entertainment area from Wednesday, August, 21st to Friday August, 23th.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
