E3 2018: Babylon's Fall Announced, Developed by PlatinumGames

It was a bite-sized 30-minute look at Square Enix's plans moving forward, with plenty for fans to get hyped over.

We also saw a new story trailer for "Shadow of the Tomb Raider", which is throwing Lara Croft into all new danger September 14, 2018. But we'll probably have to wait for more info about what Platinum is doing next.

Babylon's Fall is being developed by PlatinumGames and will release in 2019 for PC and PlayStation 4. The teaser was a unusual mixture of live action and in-game graphics, but the central gimmick seems to be that the main character is deaf.

Babylon's Fall is a totally new project for Square Enix, but it wasn't the only never-before-seen game that was revealed.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider opened the show with some gameplay footage in this latest Lara Croft adventure going through some stealthy kills.

Just Cause 4's existence still seems rather baffling, as despite having a longer trailer than at Microsoft's media briefing there was no mention of any multiplayer features or other unique selling points that might justify another sequel to a series that has never seemed to be particularly popular. We'll be sure to share any new information as it emerges.

Dragon Quest XI will be releasing on PS4 and Steam in the west on September 4.

The world's of Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter: World are coming together under one roof this summer in what appears to be a collaboration that pits Final Fantasy characters against beasts from Monster Hunter. We also hope to hear more about Dragon Quest Builders 2, perhaps even a release date.

What was disappointing though was that there was no mention at all of Square Enix's Avengers game, which previous year they'd implied would be revealed at E3.
