Game enthusiasts are all pumped for this year’s #Gamescom, kicking off later this month in Germany. The event is expected to attract thousands of people, so it comes as no surprise that gaming companies choose to be there as well. One of those being #Ubisoft, the publisher recently confirmed its 2017 lineup, which includes its biggest games.

When Gamescom opens on Aug. 22, attendees will be able to try out the games shown in the video below. The games include “South Park: The Fractured by Whole,” “Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle,” “The Crew 2,” “Far Cry 5,” and “Assassin’s Creed: Origins.” Ubisoft will prepare 300 gameplay stations at the event, which will have in-game rewards, according to the trailer.

Ubisoft to go big at Gamescom

Ubisoft’s director for international events, Leon Winkler, already has a lot on his plate, but an interview transcribed over at the Ubisoft blog suggest he’s looking forward to the event this August, even calling it his “favorite show.”

"I see our events as providing a service to our fans, and this could be a service our fans have free access to," Winkler said. “We want to interact and engage with as many players as possible. This is one of the reasons why we will have the most game stations we ever had at Gamescom.”

Along with Ubisoft’s “exclusive presentations, news, demos, trailers, and giveaways,” highlights from the “Rainbow Six” Pro League Season 2 finals and performances for “Just Dance 2018” will also be shown.

Gamescom 2017 attendees should also expect the Indie Arena Booth, “many independent developers,” and a fan shop area with more than 46 companies, including Bandai Namco, Game Legends, Konami, Otaku, Panini Verlags GmbH, and Square Enix.

Ubisoft presents the ‘SIX Collection.’

Got some spare cash to burn while attending? Ubisoft will also be selling six new adorable Ubicollectible Chibi figurines at Gamescom. The "SIX Collection" consists of five figures. Each of the cute lil' guys and gals, standing roughly four inches tall, is based on an operative from Ubisoft's door-kicking shooter. Each character comes equipped with a code that can be used to unlock a corresponding in-game item.

The figurines are now available for pre-order in the Ubisoft Store, but you can get them and other Ubicollectibles items at the dedicated Ubisoft store located Hall 5.2 booth c-011 to be held on Aug. 22 to Aug. 26. For all others who cannot be there, the figurines will be available the first week of November. #Video Game
