E3 2018: Babylon's Fall Announced for PS4 and PC by Platinum Games

Adjust Comment Print

Square Enix may not have the most to show off at the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show in Los Angeles this week, but it does have some of the most anticipated games in development.

If you've played any of the other games in this origin trilogy, then you should know what to expect by now.

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.

Outside of that, there was a sneak peek at a new title called The Quiet Man, which at first glance seems to be a title devoted to a deaf man punching Hispanic dudes in alleys throughout NY.


So far, we've seen a new trailer for "Kingdom Hearts III," the first in the series to be available on Xbox at Microsoft's E3 briefing.

Babylon's Fall is being developed by PlatinumGames and will release in 2019 for PC and PlayStation 4. Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter: World are joining up to make two groups of nerds incredibly happy.

The game will have a very large focus on action. The YouTube description for the trailer sheds more light on the title, though, saying that it's a "story driven cinematic action experience seamlessly blending high-production live action, realistic CG and pulse-pounding action gameplay". Kick off your Monday by popping on this showcase, and chatting in the comments about these games or about how the end of Toy Story 3 was wayyyyy too real.

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.


Just Cause 4 has four distinct biomes: Rainforest, Grasslands, Alpine & Desert.

We're also really looking forward to playing the free prequel to Life Is Strange 2, called The Awesome Adventures Of Captain Spirit - which will be released on June 26.

Where can I watch the Square Enix E3 2018 press conference? The trailer we were given was pretty much the same as the one we saw yesterday during Microsoft's show, only cut differently with a little bit of new footage spliced in.
