Pocket Gamer LaunchPad #5 is coming, mark your calendars for August 12th

Oh, hi there. Remember back in May (oh, so long ago) when we ran the groundbreaking Pocket Gamer LaunchPad #4? Well, it was so good that we've decided that we're going to do it all again in August, specifically on August 12th and 13th as Pocket Gamer LaunchPad #5.

That's right, the next entry in the BIGGEST mobile games event of all time is heading back to our sunny Twitch and these very pages in just over two months.

Over the (nearly a) year since we started the event up we've revealed exclusive information on hundreds of games, be that through our site, LaunchPad hub, or through our 15+ hours of densely packed live streams.

So, what's the deal with Pocket Gamer LaunchPad #5? Well, each day we'll start filling up the site with exclusive news, interviews and more. That'll start off at 9AM UK Time. We'll keep churning out reveals about the biggest, coolest upcoming games - things that have never been published elsewhere before - right up until 5PM UK Time. At that point, all of the editorial team will probably go straight to bed. However, more importantly, that's also when our live stream will start. 

Each day, from 5-7PM UK Time we'll run our livestreams. Pocket Gamer video chap James will take to our Twitch channel with a co-host and start highlighting some of the best reveals of the day as well as a whole bunch MORE exclusive content. There'll be banter, gameplay, interviews, and trailers that won't have been up on the site during the day. Whew.

Back during the first LaunchPad we exclusively detailed the newest PUBG map, we were the first to show off the latest Pascal's Wager DLC, and we handled exclusive reveals of Catalyst Black. Since then we've revealed the first mobile gameplay footage of games like Moonlighter, Dungeons of the Endless, Huntdown, The Fifth Ark and more; We've showcased games like PUBG, EVE: Echoes and Black Desert Mobile; And we've given away hundreds of pounds worth of technology.

So, if you're looking to witness the next chapter of mobile gaming history then you'll want to make sure you have your eyes on Pocket Gamer on August 12-13th.
