E3 2018 – Square Enix Roundup

The Square Enix E3 show consisted of a thirty minute pre-recorded segment instead of the live spectacles that we have witnessed from EA, Microsoft and Bethesda. They kicked off showing more gameplay footage of the forthcoming Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, with Lara taking the role of a killing machine as she stalks her enemies in an overgrown jungle. There were also re-caps of a few of the games featured in yesterday’s Xbox show, with Just Cause 4, Kingdom Hearts 3, Captain Spirit and Nier Automata all featuring, however further information was very scant.

The other games that were featured in very quick trailers were three Final Fantasy XIV Online monikered titles –  Stormblood: Final Fantasy XIV Online, Under the Moonlight and Final Fantasy XIV Online X Monster Hunter World (coming in Summer 2018).

We then moved onto Dragon Quest XI – Echoes of an Elusive Age followed by a new Platinum Games title called Babylon’s Fall which is launching in 2019 on PS4 and Steam. Then we saw Octopath Traveller on the Nintendo Switch.

Finally we saw a trailer for The Quiet Man which is coming to PS4 and Steam. This was completely different to everything else seen as it started as a CGI trailer that seamlessly moved into gameplay footage. More footage of this to come in August.

Overall, this felt like a very rushed and thrown together thirty minutes, that didn’t give us any further details on games that we hadn’t seen before.

Out of the 23 submitted titles, the top spot goes to the following 4.

Anthem – Bioware / EA

Despite what people think of EA, sometimes they manage to pull something out of the bag that wows us all, I have that feeling about Anthem, we may end up disappointed but I’m happy to go along for the ride and see what happens…

Detroit: Become Human – Quantic Dream / SIE

It looks stunning ….. after all this is from the development studio that brought us Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls, which is enough to have me giddy at the knees

Monster Hunter World – Capcom / Capcom

I love monster movies, as I type this I have Godzilla on in the background, the 1998 one people seem to hate, but I cannot resist a monster movie. Games of this ilk don’t seem to find their way to me very often so this game has my interest.

Red Dead Redemption II – Rockstar Studios / Rockstar Games

… This will be epic! The only question is just how epic! The original was a masterpiece, as Rockstar are experts at creating a living, breathing world with an incredible story. Given the quality jump between GTA4 and GTA5 I find myself salivating at what RDR2 will bring. And the success of GTA Online will surely signal the beginning of Read Dead Online, with posses of Cowboys all causing mayhem in the Wild West. CAN. NOT. WAIT!

Monster Hunter: World – New Gameplay trailer released

Capcom have today released a whopping 22 minute gameplay video for the forthcoming Monster Hunter: World. The video takes a deeper look at how one of the upcoming title’s quests unfolds as players set off on their journey to defeat the giant new monster, Anjanath, in the lush and leafy paradise of the Ancient Forest

Monster Hunter: World sees players take on the role of a hunter that completes various quests to hunt and slay monsters within a lively living and breathing eco-system full of predators…. and prey. In the video you can see some of the creatures you can expect to come across within the New World, the newly discovered continent where Monster Hunter: World is set, including the Great Jagras which has the ability to swallow its prey whole and one of the Monster Hunter series favourites, Rathalos.

Players are able to utilise survival tools such as the slinger and Scoutfly to aid them in their hunt. By using these skills to their advantage hunters can lure monsters into traps and even pit them against each other in an epic fierce battle. Can our hunter successfully survive the fight and slay the Anjanath? He’ll need to select his weapon choice carefully from 14 different weapon classes and think strategically about how to take the giant foe down. Don’t forget to pack the camouflaging ghillie suit!
