If you've played any of the other games in this origin trilogy, then you should know what to expect by now. The game looks to have some mix of live action with cut scenes, or perhaps they included it just for the trailer. Babylon's Fall is also new. The teaser was a unusual mixture of live action and in-game graphics, but the central gimmick seems to be that the main character is deaf. We'll find out more in August, but for now, see what you can make of its teaser trailer. The game is the latest major Platinum Games release since 2017's NieR Automata, with it sharing a visual similarity to From Software's Dark Souls.
Other Square Enix titles that should have some stage time include Just Cause 4, Octopath Traveler, the Final Fantasy 7 remake that was announced three years ago, and the Avengers project from Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.
Square Enix showed off a chunk of gameplay from the upcoming Tomb Raider game, showing Lara Croft pulling off a whole bunch of deadly and creative stealth assassinations. It's all looking very Just Cause, basically.
Rico Rodriguez returns in Just Cause 4 with his trademark parachute, wingsuit and, of course his grapple hook, now enhanced with new functionality and fully customisable. The dialogue was pretty bad though and it wasn't made any better by the British-accented voiceovers. Could there be more about Final Fantasy XV?
Those who were hoping for more on Kingdom Hearts 3 were likely the most disappointed bunch after Square Enix's press conference.
