With this year’s E3 behind us, we’re now looking forward to the next big trade show for the gaming industry. That event is Gamescom, which takes place every year in Germany. This year’s show runs from August 13-17, and Paradox Interactive is one of the first publishers to announce what they’ll be showing at the expo. They’ll have Pillars of Eternity and Runemaster playable on the show floor, and will also be showing hands-off demos/videos of Magicka 2 and Hearts of Iron IV. Paradox also promises a few brand new titles, and since they mentioned “titles” I’m guessing that means we’ll have more than one new announcement to look forward to. Additional details are below.

STOCKHOLM — July 8, 2014 — Paradox Interactive today announced the catalog of games that would be on display – and playable by attendees – at the Gamescom trade show in Cologne, Germany on August 13-17, 2014. Featuring recently announced titles and impending releases such as Runemaster and Obsidian Entertainment’s Pillars of Eternity, Paradox will be demonstrating and sharing their biggest games with Gamescom visitors, as well as announcing a few never-before-seen titles at the show.

Titles to be shown at Gamescom include:

– Pillars of Eternity – available to play on the show floor
– Runemaster – available to play on the show floor
– Magicka 2
– Hearts of Iron IV
– Secret projects we can’t talk about just yet

Paradox will be publicly showcasing Hearts of Iron IV, the highly anticipated World War II strategy war-game, for the first time ever in a live demonstration during Fan Gathering 2014, an annual event where Paradox Development Studio fans and devs alike can commingle and plot world domination together. Fan Gathering 2014 will take place in Cologne on August 14, 2014.

Fan Gathering 2014 will also play host to a guest panel of Paradox personnel, including CEO Fred Wester and Paradox Development Studio veteran Johan Andersson, which will be moderated by popular YouTuber Quill18. Hear banter on developing strategy games, ask Fred embarrassing questions about his love of karaoke, or just stare intently into Johan’s deep blue eyes.
