With Gamescom 2017 just around the corner THQ Nordic has released the lineup of games they will be showcasing at the event. There will be eight of them in total, six of which have already been announced: the open-world RPG ELEX, the Battle Chasers: Nightwar RPG, the multiplayer version of SpellForce 3, the underwater FPS Aquanox: Deep Descent, and a newly updated version of The Guild 3.

Most interestingly of all, THQ Nordic has also announced that they will be showing off two brand new games at the event, one of which is a new and original IP. The first announcement will be a new installment of a well-known, mysterious, and horrific IP. What exactly that game is going to be, I simply don't know, but if I had to do an educated guess I would say its going to be a new Alan Wake game given that it fits all of the criteria.

As for the second game, its going to be a brand new and original IP. The only thing I can tell you is that it will be an open-world RPG set in a unique universe with a post-apocalyptic and kung-fu theme. Now that is one hell of a combination!

I would love to offer you more, but I'm afraid that's pretty much everything THQ Nordic decided to share so far. All of the games above will be fully playable during the show, so if you're stopping by Gamescom 2017 you'll have a chance to try them first hand. As for the rest of us, I suppose we'll just have to make do with all of the trailers and previews.
