Black Ops Cold War (opens in new tab)  will take virtual center stage during the Gamescom Opening Night Live presentation on Thursday.

Geoff Keighley, who is producing the Opening Night Live event, also revealed a new piece of art for the game on his official Twitter account. The quick teaser video focuses on an image split in two, with a Soviet agent on one side and an American soldier on the other. The Ushanka hat and helmet of the two characters are overlaid with propaganda imagery from their respective countries.

Fall Guys has quickly become a global phenomenon, though console gaming makes up a small portion of the Chinese games industry. It makes sense that Fall Guys would debut on mobile for Chinese audiences - we'll have to wait and see whether it will get a similar debut in the rest of the world.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
