Though most of Square Enix’s lineup appeared in nearly every other event, they did provide us with some further details on their upcoming games. These include:
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Square Enix showcased a longer trailer for the latest Tomb Raider entry, displaying some actual gameplay mechanics, and informed attendees that it will have one of the “biggest hubs ever created in a Tomb Raider game.”
Shadow of the Tomb Raider releases on September 14, 2018 for Xbox One.
Babylon’s Fall is the latest IP being developed by PlatinumGames. No actual gameplay was shown, but considering the high quality games they’ve released in recent years, such as last year’s Nier: Automata, we suspect this to be another great action game.
Babylon’s Fall will release in 2019, but no platforms have been announced.
Just Cause 4
More Just Cause 4 footage was shown, providing a bit more information on what players can expect from the gameplay. It’s anticipated to have the same great sandbox freedom seen in the previous entries, while providing players with even more options to cause mayhem.
Just Cause 4 releases for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on December 4, 2018.
The Quiet Man
The Quiet Man appears to be Square Enix’s take on a movie-like video game, mixing live action elements with CGI. Sqaure also announced the game can be completed in a single sitting. No additional information was released, so hopefully this turns out okay.
No release date was announced, though Sqaure Enix stated there’s more to come in August. The Quiet Man will be released for Playstation 4 and PC.
Dragon Quest XI
The latest entry in the Dragon Quest series is coming stateside. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age was originally only released in Japan, so I am sure many Dragon Quest fans are ecstatic about this announcement.
The latest entry is releasing stateside and in Europe September 4, 2018 on PS4 and PC.
Octopath Traveler displays what Square Enix calls a “2d HD” RPG, following 8 distinct characters, each with their own story. Players will use each character’s unique skills to gain allies, make enemies, or steal from NPCs. This is actually one of my most-anticipated games coming to Nintendo Switch.
Octopath Traveler releases July 13th, 2018, exclusively on Switch.
