Set in the near future, when dramatic advances in science, specifically human augmentation, have triggered a technological renaissance, Deus Ex: Human Revolution follows Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT security specialist who must embrace mechanical augments in order to unravel a global conspiracy.
Square Enix has revealed they’re bringing their “supernatural detective thriller” to North America on June 3, just a week before E3 kicks off and officially takes over my life for a few days. Murdered: Soul Suspect follows Ronan O’Connor, a slain detective who is on the hunt to find his murderer so he can finally rest in peace. Unfortunately, a legion of demonic creatures stand in his way — as they do.
Soul Suspect will run you $59.99 if you’re planning on grabbing the next-gen (Xbox One, PS4) version, $49.99 for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
With the long awaited Thief reboot just a few short days away, Square Enix has released a launch trailer which wonders about ghosts in the midst of a city-side revolt. The game looks great — even better on PS4, where it runs at 1080p (Xbox One is at 900p) — though if you’ve been paying attention, that shouldn’t be all that surprising.
Launch trailer after the jump.
Sumthing Else Music Works has announced that they will be releasing the official original soundtrack to the upcoming Square Enix/Eidos-Montreal action-stealth game Thief, which comes out February 25th on current and previous gen consoles as well as PC. The music was composed by Luc St. Pierre, who also composed the 2009 TV horror fantasy Hellhounds as well as the 2008 horror drama The Watch. You can preview all the tracks and pre-order the album here.
Head below to watch a trailer for the game. READ MORE
As Garrett prepares to sneak real stealth-like into lots of households when Thief arrives later this month, Square Enix has released a new 17 minute-long gameplay trailer that explores the first of the game’s missions, dubbed “Lockdown”. In it, Garrett is tasked with returning to his clock tower hideout when one of his heists goes wrong.
You can watch the mission in full after the break.
This news is about as surprising as the recent revelation that we’ll soon be seeing another Mortal Kombat, but it’s good news, and I like covering good news, so I’m all for chatting about another Tomb Raider game and the myriad ways we can look forward to seeing Lara Craft die.
I’ve played a lot of mature video games in my days, but there were some deaths in the last game that made me super uncomfortable. One thing’s for certain, I will never go white water rafting again. River’s are super dangerous, man.
Of the many games that were shown off at E3 last week, for me, Thief is one of the more exciting ones. It just looks so damn good. I’m not even terribly good at — read: really, really bad — or a huge fan of the stealth genre, though games like Dishonored and Splinter Cell are slowly changing that.
Thief looks gorgeous, and I’ve enjoyed some of the supernatural horror elements in previous games (the Shalebridge Cradle from Deadly Shadows was intense). I think they may have replaced most, if not all, of that with gritty realism in this next installment, but even still, it looks fantastic. At E3, Square Enix showed off ten wonderful minutes from the the upcoming game, which you can enjoy after the break.
I’m really liking what Square Enix has been dipping their fingers into lately. Particularly the reboot of Tomb Raider. But recently Murdered: Soul Suspect has had my attention. And if you know me at all I’m a huge Final Fantasy fan, so that of course. This year at E3 Square Enix is giving everyone a bit more than the usual onslaught of Final Fantasy games. Yes, they will be showing 2 of those, but they will also be showing Murdered, the newly announced Deus Ex: The Fall, and the highly anticipated Thief and much more. Head past the break, I dare you.
Square Enix must have made bank on the new Tomb Raider game because they are selling a ton of stuff on Xbox Live at some deep discounts. Head past the break to see the full list of games, dlc, etc you can get for up to 75% off. The deal starts today and runs until March 19th. You can only usually find this many crazy deals on Steam, so if you were pondering buying some of these things before, now would be a great time.
As one of gaming’s longest running franchises, Tomb Raider has fared better than most. Lara Croft has proven capable of weathering multiple console generations, reboots, and platforms while keeping what made the original game so appealing way back in 1996. After the success of the last “trilogy,” Crystal Dynamics went back to the drawing board. They wanted to reboot it again, this time injecting it with a grittier, darker origin story for Ms. Croft.
Were they successful? Let’s find out.
Any one remember that abortion ‘I Know Who Killed Me‘? Well lets hope Murdered doesn’t get as bad of reviews as I Know Who Killed Me did. Though BD gave it a 4/5? Moving on to the real reason we’re here, Square Enix just released the teaser trailer you can see below. All the details are vague and it seems they want to keep it that way for now. All we really know is in the game you are killed, and somehow, probably as a sexy ghost you have to solve your own murder.
The press release urges us to search for clues via Twitter, Facebook, and the Official Website for the game. Murdered: Soul Suspect is looking at an early 2014 release date on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
Late last week, Square Enix launched a creepy guerilla marketing campaign for a mysterious new murder-related game, slated for release on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. It all began with a tweet from @Murdered (I’m super surprised that handle hadn’t been nabbed already), but with the Internet being what it is, it didn’t take long to get the full picture. Just when things start to get spooky, Square Enix reveals that the mysterious game is something called Murdered: Soul Suspect! So yeah, mystery solved, I guess? More after the jump.
The house of Final Fantasy recently registered the domains BloodMasque.com and BloodMasque.net for what sounds like it could be a new horror or possibly vampire themed IP. The rumor’s been abuzz with speculation and so far Square Enix has been mum on the situation, leaving us to imagine the greatest of possibilities. I’d personally like to see a really good vampire game, because we don’t have enough of those. Really, I’ll be happy so long as it has nothing to do with zombies. What about you, what do you think this could be?
Square Enix has always been known for their RPGs. The Final Fantasy series mostly. I kind of wish they would bring back some classics from the SNES era. After jumping on board with Deep Silver to help publish Dead Island it’s nice to see Square switching it up quite a bit. A decent line up this year for them which you can check past the break.
It’s been 2 months now since we saw the Dead Island trailer that changed most of our lives. As we felt for a family we never saw before, and don’t even know their names. Though the trailer below does not compare to the 1st groundbreaking trailer, it still gives me an unsettling feeling in my gut. Check it out.
As you can see at the end of the video, E3 will bring us another new trailer. Hopefully, gameplay. Dead Island is looking at an August 1st release date on the PC, Playstation 3, and XBox 360. READ MORE
An odd paring was announced today, as Dead Islands publisher Deep Silver will be partnering with Square Enix for the distribution of Dead Island in North and South America on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
“Dead Island is a truly extraordinary title and we couldn’t be more excited about leveraging our unified Square Enix resources in bringing it to audiences in the Americas.” said Mike Fischer, president and chief executive officer, Square Enix, Inc.
Square Enix popped out the only thing of theirs that I had been pining over (FFXIII) in March, so anything else they show me at E3 will seem insignificant. EXCEPT! The 3rd Birthday. Which is the 3rd and long long long awaited Parasite Eve game. Which I am DYING to get my hands on.
They are somewhat joining together with a few other companies to show off their games. Head past the break for the large list of games. READ MORE
