E3 2018 Roundup: Square Enix hold cards close to their chest

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3 as it is more commonly known, is arguably the biggest event on the gaming calendar. Each year, top developers and studios showcase the products they’ve been working on. Square Enix, a newcomer to the E3 stage, kept their conference short, offering only a small handful of announcements in their time at the helm. Take a look below.

Monster Hunter World/FFXIV crossover?

Square Enix opened by teasing an upcoming crossover between Monster Hunter World and Final Fantasy XIV. https://youtu.be/dq8CKCQZNMk Although there isn't much to go on, this is a crossover that could definitely get interesting and the two world's could collide in a very enjoyable manner. The game is coming this summer.

Babylon's Fall

PlatinumGames are making a game with Square Enix, set for a 2019 release on PC and PS4. https://youtu.be/SzqLLdFINLE The trailer spans a timeline of notable events within the lore of the game, before finally resting on a small team of characters, featuring what seems to be bursts of magic and sci-fi elements. It certainly looks exciting.

More Just Cause 4

Just Cause 4 was first shared during the Microsoft conference, but Square Enix went in to a bit more detail on the upcoming title. https://youtu.be/_ZKulp_ogo0 The game is set in South-America, in the series' biggest map yet. It has a core focus of extreme weather, presenting new dangers and choices for the player to work with and counter. It features a more refined system than what has been available in previous Just Cause titles, making the combat system and grappling hook more fluid.

The Quiet Man

Square Enix teased a new PC and PS4 game, named The Quiet Man. https://youtu.be/5UotqQexmvQ This was the only real surprise from the Square Enix conference, as well as the most exciting reveal. The game is being created by Human Head Studios, the developer responsible for 2006's Prey. The Steam page for the game describes it as "an immersive story-driven cinematic action experience seamlessly blending high-production live action, realistic CG and pulse-pounding action gameplay". Though no dates have been confirmed, we've been told to expect more news in August – presumably at Gamescom. What did you think of Square Enix's conference? It seems most weren't impressed with the short show – but maybe we've been spoiled by Microsoft and EA before them. Regardless, I look forward to seeing more on The Quiet Man.
