There’s a ton of video game news to get into today. Today was the start of Gamescom 2020, and kicking things off was Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live, which featured updates on games we mostly already knew about. We got a look at Dragon Age 4 and new gameplay from the upcoming Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Elsewhere throughout the day, we got a sneak peek at Fall Guys Season 2, new footage of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, a Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond story trailer, new Destiny 2: Beyond Light details, and more. Here’s the video game news you might’ve missed on Aug. 27, 2020.
Fall Guys Season 2 Will Feature Medieval Costumes
Today, we got a sneak peek at what to expect from Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Season 2, which will introduce new costumes of the medieval variety. You’ll see dragons, chain mail armor, and knight armor costumes — all with that beloved Fall Guys touch. We don’t know when Season 2 will launch or what else we can expect from it, but at least we know we’ll have a slew of new costumes to enjoy.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Confirmed for Spring 2021
As was accidentally revealed on the official Lego website yesterday, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has, in fact, been delayed to 2021. Originally due out this year, the game will now launch in spring 2021 at an unspecified date. To hold us over, developer TT Games put together a wonderful trailer showing off gameplay covering all nine movies from the Skywalker Saga. It seems like we’ll still get the Lego humor the series is known for, and better yet, it will also be launching for next-generation consoles now. Check out the trailer below.
September 2020’s Games with Gold Titles Announced
We now know what games we can expect through Xbox’s Games with Gold for the month of September 2020. Starting on Sept. 1, subscribers will gain access to Tom Clancy’s The Division for Xbox One and de Blob 2 for Xbox 360. Then, starting on Sept. 16, you’ll get The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 for Xbox One and Armed and Dangerous for the original Xbox. In total, Microsoft notes the games are valued at nearly $80 in savings — not bad for $15 per month.
Protecting NY in Tom Clancy’s The Division, pointing AND clicking in The Book of Unwritten Rules 2, bringing color to a drab world in de Blob 2, and saving the world in Armed and Dangerous. It's gonna be a busy month! https://t.co/YoTDIeJDDu

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond Story Trailer Shown Off
Yet another game showcased at Gamescom: Opening Night Live today was Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, Respawn Entertainment’s high-profile new VR title. The game takes you back to World War II, sabotaging Nazi bases, supporting the French Resistance, and — apparently — dropping out of planes. The story trailer below teases a dynamic action story with some deeply unambiguous heroes and villains.
Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is the first new title in the Medal of Honor franchise since 2012, and it will release exclusively on Oculus in VR this holiday season.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light Trailer Gives Us a Look at Stasis Subclasses
Following Destiny 2: Beyond Light‘s delay into this fall, players were eager to see more of the new expansion. Today, Bungie delivered, showing us a look at the game’s new Stasis subclasses. Though we still don’t know a lot about the subclasses, we did get their names, including Warlock’s Shadebinder, Titan’s Behemoth, and Hunter’s Revenants — each of which feature its own unique abilities.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light will launch across all platforms on Nov. 10 and can be preordered now.
