European fans will be given their first opportunity to go hands-on with Gearbox's upcoming multiplayer shooter Battleborn at next week's Gamescom, 2K has confirmed.

The game will be joined at the show by XCOM 2, NBA 2K16 and WWE 2K16, although the publisher simply says that attendees will be able to "find out more" about them, suggesting the three games may not actually be playable.

Mafia 3, meanwhile, will be shown off behind-closed-doors.

Besides that, though, there's the chance to prove how good you are at Evolve, with 2K's Beat the Pro tournament offering one lucky winner the chance to win up to €2,000. And even if you aren't quite good enough to win it, you'll still be able to give Evolve's latest assault character Lennox a try.

Gamescom begins next Wednesday, August 5, with doors set to open to the public the following day.
