Nvidia announces “GEFORCE GAMING CELEBRATION” ahead of Gamescom 2018

Nvidia has confirmed that they will be hosting an event before Gamescom 2018, a celebration that is set to begin on August 20th at 6 PM CET and be livestreamed through the duration of the showcase. 

The “Geforce Gaming Celebration” will be filled with PC games that are running on “the latest Geforce Hardware”, hinting that this event will be the reveal of next-generation gaming hardware, bringing the era of Pascal to a close. 

Expect PC demos of yet-to-be-released gaming titles, many of which are likely to make use of Nvidia technologies like RTX, an AI-driven Ray Tracing acceleration technique and more. Below is Nvidia’s announcement of this “secret” event.


    The world’s biggest gaming expo, Gamescom 2018, runs August 21-25 in Cologne, Germany. And GeForce will loom large there — at our Gamescom booth, Hall 10.1, Booth E-072; at our partners’ booths, powering the latest PC games; and at our own off-site GeForce Gaming Celebration that starts the day before.

The event will be loaded with new, exclusive, hands-on demos of the hottest upcoming games, stage presentations from the world’s biggest game developers, and some spectacular surprises.

To join in, simply head here, register, and turn up for the start of the festivities on Monday, Aug. 20. Doors open at 5.30pm CET and the fun starts at 6pm. There’s limited space, so make sure you arrive early. Can’t make it in person? Don’t worry, it will be livestreamed.

If you somehow choose to miss Monday’s epic event, the festivities continue on Tuesday at 10am, and run clear through to 5pm. Again, space is strictly on a first-come, first-served basis, so make sure you and your clan members turn up early to go hands-on with the spectacular PC-powered demos of the most-anticipated, yet-to-be-released games.
