Buying tickets is more convenient this year: private visitors can now buy personalized tickets for additional adults and minors (limited to a maximum of 10 tickets per day). The tickets are sent as PDFs and can be saved in the wallet of the respective mobile device. At the same time, the tickets will be made available on Gamescom now.
