Square Enix announced its broad spectrum of next-generation and current generation console, PC and mobile game products to be unveiled during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2013, June 11-13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Booth #1647. The company’s portfolio features new games from signature franchises, a re-imagined classic along with compelling new properties.

FINAL FANTASY, one of the most successful game franchises of all time, will have a dominant presence in the publisher’s booth with both FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, a stunning massively multiplayer online role playing game that will enable players to create their own FINAL FANTASY adventure, and LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII , the epic conclusion to the series. Square Enix will also unveil the first look at the next-generation of FINAL FANTASY.

THIEF is the reinvention of a classic franchise that allows players to step into the silent shoes of Garrett, a dark and solitary thief with an unrivaled set of skills. The most challenging heists, the most inaccessible loots, the best kept secrets: nothing is out of Garrett’s reach. The mystery thriller Murdered: Soul Suspect will haunt attendees as an entirely new game property where the main character travels through both a modern day Salem, Massachusetts and a ghost world to solve his own murder. Square Enix will also introduce Deus Ex: The Fall, the new installment of the award winning DEUS EX series. Additional mobile and tablet games will also be at E3.

“Square Enix continues to show its global creative presence like no other game publisher with products from its internal studios around the world as well as key partners,” said Yosuke Matsuda, representative director of Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. “As the industry continues to diversify and expand Square Enix is poised to lead that change with products showcased at this year’s E3.” Read more

June 11, 2013 · Filed Under News · Comment 

DICE demonstrated the next generation of Battlefield 4 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, California. DICE showcased “Angry Sea,” a stunning single-player demo at the Microsoft media briefing, “Xbox: A New Generation of Games Revealed.” DICE also debuted “Siege of Shanghai,” a spectacular 64-person multiplayer match at “The Download: EA 2013 Preview” press conference. Both software demos were running at a silky smooth 60-frames per second, even while rendering massive maps, vehicles and infantry, environmental effects and dynamic destruction. Gamers can tune into a live stream of Battlefield 4 multiplayer direct from the EA E3 show floor at: http://www.battlefield.com/uk.

DICE also revealed two notable innovations in multiplayer: a game-changer called Levolution, and the return of the fan-favorite Commander Mode. Levolution creates a dynamic and emergent battlefield where gamers can use the environment to their advantage like cutting the power to a building to shroud their enemy in darkness or reducing an entire skyscraper to rubble to alter the battlefield.

With Levolution, the environment reacts to the player’s every move and ensures no two games will ever be the same. Commander Mode places two opposing players at the heart of the situation room with a birds-eye view of the battlefield. It’s a tug-of-war match between two commanders as they deliver critical intelligence and powerful assets to their troops below to the turn the tide of the battle. Gamers will feel the rush of Commander Mode on current-generation and next-generation consoles as well as PC. For the first time, commanders can also take control from their iPad or Android tablet.
