We may have glanced a glimpse at an initial list of exhibitors set to showcase their games and wares at this year’s gamescom event, but now a larger and more extensive round-up of developers, publishers and technology companies has emerged.
While this list is but a quarter of the full line-up of exhibitors that will appear at the world’s largest games convention (once again taking place in Cologne, Germany), we can still pick through it and see which of our favourite companies have signed up so far.
Valve Software has once again made the list, which will be fantastic for gamescom 2011 attendees (especially after the studio was a no-show at E3 2011), while Bethesda Softworks and EA are also present and accounted for.
There are new (and big) additions to the list, too:
