PES 2014 and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will both be playable at Gamescom, Konami has confirmed.

The two titles will be available to play on the show floor alongside the PC version of the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, offering eager gamers the first chance to get to grips with Konami's upcoming line-up.

Konami has also promised "further content announcements regarding [the] Pro Evolution Soccer and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow brands" for the show.

Metal Gear fans may come away slightly disappointed, though. There's no indication that Kojima's upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will appear at all throughout the five day event.

"Konami enters Gamescom at a very exciting time in its long history," said Martin Schneider, general manager for Konami Digital Entertainment.

"Following the successful relocation, we enter gamescom with a trio of extremely strong titles - and a chance for visitors to Cologne to go hands-on with the all-new PES 2014, the absolutely breath-taking Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, and the PC debut of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Ultimate Edition.

"Gamescom is an essential part of the European gaming calendar, and we look forward to showing our hand and unveiling key product details as we move towards launch."

Gamescom is just over four weeks away, kicking off on August 21 until August 25.
