Square Enix’s E3 Presentation Leaves Audiences Asking: Is This It?

No Caption Provided

Not that we're complaining, as the sandbox destruction looked as fun as ever - especially with the new extreme weather effects and more versatile grapple hook.

E3 2018 marked Square Enix's return to holding a press conference at the event, as its last showcase was at E3 2015.

That's the mood I'm in now having seen the new trailer Square Enix revealed during it's Nintendo Direct E3 Showcase.

Square Enix's presentation included information on two new games called Babylon's Fall and The Quiet Man, with no insight on what these games are gonna be about. Square are promising "more to come" in August which suggests we'll have to keep guessing until then. They also spent a lot of time with close-ups of the tornadoes that will be blaring around in Just Cause 4, which is getting a December release date. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, a new game in the Life is unusual universe, and the Xbox version of Nier: Automata were also announced yesterday, stripping today's presentations of any real excitement.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey releases on October 5th, gets first official gameplay trailer
From the video footage, we can tell the game will have explorable underwater locations along with the potential for naval battles. Instead of scaling pyramids, though, you'll be scaling Greek statues in places like Delos, Athens, and Sparta.

It's out next year, but only for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Meanwhile, from Japan we got a big new trailer for Dragon Quest 11 finally coming over to America on PlayStation 4 and Steam this September. The dialogue was pretty terrible though and it wasn't made any better by the British-accented voiceovers.

It was a bite-sized 30-minute look at Square Enix's plans moving forward, with plenty for fans to get hyped over. A lot of games that were presented at Microsoft's E3 press conference.
