Continuing along our adventure across the conference and we now come to Square Enix, and they do have some heavy hitters starting with first off with The Avengers which is the first game in a multi-year game licencing agreement between Square and Marvel, who by now could fund a real-life Avengers team and have enough leftover money to buy out Shawarma.
Rumours are circulating that it may be a Destiny-style Adventure which was originally shown on E3s actual site before it was redacted. Luckily PC Gamer managed to dot it all down before Thanos came to town on it.
“Embrace your powers and join key members of the development team at Crystal Dynamics and the creative team at Marvel Games as they talk exclusively about the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers. This is the defining Avengers gaming experience: an epic action-adventure that combines cinematic storytelling with continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay. Moderated by Andrea Rene, assemble in teams up to four players, master extraordinary abilities, customize your heroes to fit your playstyle, and combine powers to defend an ever-expanding world under constant threat.”
As it has been officially announced that it will be making an appearance at E3 according to its Twitter feed (well one tweet at the moment). Dying Light 2 will also be shown at E3 as well. Dying Light the more successful zombie game compared to Dead Island if you take that trailer out of the equation. Seriously, while the plot is a bit cartoonish and is buggy than a bug in a dune buggy I had a lot of fun with the parkour and kicking zombies in the fucking head. When playing, I was impressed with what was shown at the Microsoft conference last year, so I’m interested to see their progress from last year.
Now, remember all those years ago when the Remake for Final Fantasy 7 was announced about 2015? Well, it is likely to be making an appearance at E3 this year. As during a Sony State of Play stream earlier in the month. As towards the end of the trailer the words “more to come in June”. Which does sound like it will be making an appearance at E3?
To remind you what is to be expected it will be a total overhaul of the original game featuring the same locations but will roughly tell the same story in a modern fashion. With a real-time combat system and a free-roaming camera like what was used in Final Fantasy 15. Though the potential pisser could be that it will be split up into segments which do seem rather a cheap move if this was to be true.
