New Platinum game Babylon’s Fall revealed in Square Enix E3 Showcase 2018

12 June, 2018, 02:33 | Author: Tara Roberts

The title is Babylon's Fall, and you can see a brief teaser below. As you're flying around causing mayhem as Rico, you'll also encounter tornadoes, blizzards, lightning storms, and more, setting up some blockbuster risk/reward gameplay opportunities. However, Square Enix has said more will be shown off come August. From the debut trailer, it seems like cutscenes will be in live-action, but the gameplay will look like a standard game. That one comes with a couple of action figures based on the Toy Story world in-game and all the previous goodies.

Babylon's Fall is set to release in 2019 on PS4 and Steam.

Why the two new games are skipping the Xbox One is a mystery, especially as they're new IP, but since the excellent NieR: Automata (also a Platinum game) will be arriving on Microsoft's console on June 26 maybe it's more a question of when and not if.

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.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey will release in October, according to Ubisoft's store page
One mission instructs you to destroy Athenian war supplies and destroy weapon racks to reduce the "Nation Power" of the Athenians. Ubisoft is showcasing new content from some of its highly-anticipated titles and announcing exciting new games at E3 today.

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider offered a first look at jungle combat, with what seems to be a stealth system very similar to the Predator sections in Batman: Arkham.

What was Just Cause 4 doing here?
