RPG giant Square Enix just wrapped up its E3 2019 presser, and the showcase was full of announcements and trailers for new and upcoming games. Here are the biggest news items to come out today’s showcase.
E3 2019 gave us our first look at the Crystal Dynamics/Marvel collaboration in motion. Marvel’s Avengers will take iconic moments from the film franchise and translate them into video game form — but Square Enix says the title will have a wholly original story. The title will work under the games-as-service model, with new Avengers coming as DLC in the future. You’ll be able to play in online co-op with up to three friends. You can read more here.
More Final Fantasy 7 Remake footage
Oh hey, this game actually has a release date now: March 3, 2020. The latest gameplay looks solid, although there do seem to be some changes that go beyond a combat overhaul. This footage also shows off Tifa, who we hadn’t seen before under this engine. Neat. Also: There’s enough content to fill two Blu-ray discs, Square Enix says. The first disc will take place entirely in Midgar.
People Can Fly — you might know them as the folks behind Bulletstorm — showed off its next first-person shooter, which is a sci-fi title where players must find out the truth about a mysterious signal. The developers are calling this co-op shooter their biggest game yet.
Final Fantasy 8 Remastered is real
It’s happening! The remastered version of this classic yet divisive RPG will have enhanced visuals. It’s out in 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC.
Final Fantasy 14: Shadowbringer
FF14’s big new expansion is right around the corner, and Square Enix detailed what players can expect during today’s E3 presentation with a launch trailer for the update. It’s out on July 2, unless you preordered — then it’s out on June 28.
