Gamescom Now 2021 will be in full swing this week starting August 25th. The Digital event boasts plenty of reveals and updates from the video game industry, as well as its own awards ceremony. The nominees have been announced for the Gamescom Awards 2021 which, will be held during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live hosted by Geoff Keighley.
