Gamescom 2014: the ultimate trailer and news round-up

All the best bits from this year's show, served up on one giant platter

We've been rushing around scouring the cavernous halls of Gamescom here in Cologne this week, slashing zombies, shooing enemies and jumping into virtual worlds.

We've rounded up everything you need to know about this year's show, so sit back, catch up on the trailers, and start marking your calendars - there's plenty to look forward to.

Sony news and trailers

The best of the rest

Microsoft

Microsoft's biggest announcement this year was that Rise Of The Tomb Raider will be exclusive to Xbox One, pitting Lara Croft directly against Sony's Nathan Drake and the Uncharted series.

Two new Xbox One consoles were also announced - a white version bundled with Sunset Overdrive, and a Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare model with a futuristic military look and a 1TB hard drive.

Master Chief fans will also have a brand new Halo Channel to look forward to, coagulating everything from the Halo universe into one digital portal. From the latest game updates to new episodes of Ridley Scott's live action Nightfall series, it looks set to be every Halo fan's go-to source for news and content. Well, other than Stuff.tv of course.

We also got a first look at the trippy time-bending gameplay of Quantum Break, which looks set to be a powerful exclusive weapon in Microsoft's arsenal.

Indie games received a strong showing this year, with titles such as the surreal Below and action-packed multiplayer online battle arena Smite both looking mighty promising.

We also were surprised and delighted to see ScreamRide. Essentially a twisted, futuristic version of Roller Coaster Tycoon (and made by the same developer, Frontier), your aim in it is to create the most insane, heart-stopping rides, with success measured by screams.

Anyway, on with the show - here are all of the best trailers from Microsoft's event, together in one place.
