Gamescom 2019 is here and it is loaded with incredible updates. The gaming industry is at a highly welcomed crossroads; consoles are getting better and better while the cloud gaming world is taking off at speed. From Google Stadia announcing a ton of new games to Dell bringing out the big guns with new monitors and desktops, we’ve got all the excitement of Gamescom 2019 right here.

Google Stadia adds exciting new titles

For those who love the move from the console to the cloud, Google Stadia’s presentation was loaded with new titles to tease gamers even more for the November launch.

 

These include the much-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077. This game won’t be released on the major consoles until April 2020, so it’s safe to say it will be the same for Google Stadia. Doom Eternal was another top title, along with Mortal Kombat 11, which will be available when the platform launches. Other announced titles include Attach on Titan 2: Final Battle, Orcs Must Die! 3, Kine, Superhot, and a handful more.

Switch & PS4 won’t be getting more Xbox exclusives

Unfortunately for non-Xbox owners, Microsoft confirmed that they won’t be releasing exclusive Xbox titles to Nintendo Switch or PS4. This comes after Cuphead was made available on Switch earlier this year. And, just this week, Microsoft said they’ll be putting Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition on Switch as well.

Despite this, there are no other plans for a cross-console partnership. In order to access and play exclusive Xbox games without a console, gamers will need to rely on xCloud, Microsoft’s cloud gaming service that is yet to be debuted.

Nvidia blows everyone away (again)

In an update called the “Gamescom Game Ready Driver,” Nvidia is upping their specs all around. The 436.02 update’s biggest addition is the ultra-low latency mode. In fact, they claim it reduces latency by up to 33%. It achieves this by submitting “frames to be rendered just before the GPU needs them” and is most noticeable on games running at 60fps to 100fps.

The update also mentions a brand-new Freestyle sharpening feature. This lets gamers choose their designed sharpness. Nvidia says “[t]he performance impact is roughly half that of the prior filter.” Finally, the update also features GPU integer scaling so you can choose to scale up retro games without experiences extra blur. The GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX 16-Series GPUs will both have this.

Alienware Aurora R9 Gaming Desktop

The Aurora R9 has been designed to e-sports pro standards, meaning it can certainly hold up to anything your living room might bring its way. The range—which includes eight configurations, by the way—features your choice of 9th Gen Intel Core i9 processor. It runs on Windows 10 and you have your choice of GPU, including the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2070 8GB GDDR6.

In fact, it covers 98.5% of DCI-P3 colors, so you’ll never miss a thing.
