With Gamescom 2020 becoming a digital-only event, that isn’t stopping the annual convention from announcing game after game. Here’s everything that was announced during Gamescom 2020’s opening night that will be joining the Nintendo Switch family!

Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition

Following the highly successful release of Jurassic World Evolution on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition lets players experience it all on the move – anytime, anywhere.

Packed with every piece of DLC released since launch, Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition includes all three major narrative expansions: Jurassic World Evolution: Return to Jurassic Park, Jurassic World Evolution: Claire’s Sanctuary, and Jurassic World Evolution: Secrets of Dr. Wu, as well as four Dinosaur Packs and the Raptor Squad Skin Collection.  

Players can immerse themselves in every aspect of their very own Jurassic World as they take control of operations on the legendary Isla Nublar and the surrounding islands of the Muertes Archipelago. With the fate of the park at their fingertips, players can construct attractions, as well as containment and research facilities as they bioengineer new dinosaur species that think, feel and intelligently react to their environments.”

The gates to Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition opens on Tuesday, November 3rd, and is available to pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop.

 

DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods, Part One

We now have a better look at DOOM Eternal’s upcoming DLC. Ready to “Travel to previously uncharted realms of the DOOM universe and confront a new challenge head-on” in a new single-player storyline? Awesome, Isabelle is ready too, and hopes that this next adventure gives DOOM Guy an excellent workout. Can’t skip “save the world” day and think you still have a chance of making it into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Oh well, a girl can dream. 

Be ready to traverse unknown hellscapes in DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods, Part One DLC on Tuesday, October 20th.

 

Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead

“Prepare for the ultimate mashup experience! Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead combines the legendary and challenging puzzle gameplay of Bridge Constructor™ with the post-apocalyptic universe of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Join a group of survivors as they fight against hordes of undead walkers and a hostile human community. Build bridges and other constructions through bleak landscapes and ruined structures. Team up with fan-favorite characters like Daryl, Michonne and Eugene, and create safe passage for iconic vehicles from the series.

Use movable level objects, explosives and baits to your advantage as you lure walkers into lethal traps and guide your survivors to safety. Enjoy the physics-based frenzy and ragdoll animations as walkers succumb to the forces of gravity.”

Enjoy the thrill of civil engineering without all the paperwork, but with a heaping dose of “Oops! All Zombies!” later this year.

 

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground

Lead your highly-customisable force in this dynamic and spectacular turn-based strategy game packed with fast-paced warfare. Victories allow you to collect and upgrade new types of units, powerful equipment, and unlock devastating skills. Explore all the routes in Storm Ground’s non-linear campaign.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds

Previously shown in July’s Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, WWE 2K Battlegrounds continues to build-up the smackdown hype before the game is released on Friday, September 18th.

 

Warframe: Heart of Deimos

“Heart of Deimos is a trifecta of incredibly rich Warframe content. The expansion offers the Cinematic New Player Introduction directed by Dan Trachtenberg, the incredibly deep customizable Helminth System for mid- to end-level players, and a densely packed, story-driven open world in which all players can team up, fight, level up, and explore an alien-infested moon.”

The third expansion to Warframe was released earlier this week on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, but the Nintendo Switch version wasn’t ready… until now! Grab your friends and explore the world of Deimos, if you dare.

 

Override 2: Super Mech League

Outrun ravenous rats, joyride a dirt bike, and vault over pools of unmentionable waste, all on your epic quest to unlock Troy’s full potential.”

You and a friend can play Struggling now! It’s available on the Nintendo eShop for $14.99.

 

Spellbreak

Spellbreak is a multiplayer action-spellcasting game where players unleash their inner battlemage and wield two powerful magic gauntlets that blend devastating spell combinations to control the battlefield with fiery tornadoes, electrified gas clouds, and more!  Set in the Hollow Lands, players can explore the map to find tactical advantages and discover hidden chests that contain magical runes that give new abilities, including flight, teleport, and invisibility.”

This battle royale with a magical twist will start accepting Battlemages on Thursday, September 3rd.
