Square Enix Has a Great Lineup of Games Showing at E3 2016
Video game giant Square Enix has posted the first in a series of posts detailing what to expect from the company when it comes to their games showing at E3 2016. And let us tell you, the future is looking bright (yes, so bright you’ll need to wear shades) for sci-fi gaming fans. So, let’s talk demos. If you visit the Square Enix booth, you’ll have a chance to play demos of some of their most anticipated upcoming titles, including the following three awesome sci-fi titles.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
The latest entry in the epic Deus Ex series, and sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, this entry builds on the choice and consequence format we’ve come to know and love, creating a memorable and highly immersive action RPG experience. Here’s a brief plot synopsis from SE:
“Players will once again take on the role of Adam Jensen, now an experienced covert agent, and will gain access to his new arsenal of customizable state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations. With time working against him, Adam must choose the right approach, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.”
Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness
Not enough RPG for you? Not to worry, as you’ll also be able to play the fifth installment in the epic sci-fi RPG series, just weeks ahead of it’s June 28th release date.
“Developed by tri-Ace, the celebrated studio behind the STAR OCEAN series, and with character design by akiman (Akira Yasuda), the game is an epic adventure that introduces seamless transitions between gameplay and dynamic cut scenes, creating a new level of depth of immersive storytelling in video games.”
Just Cause 3
And if you’re raring to ramp up the action, you’ll also have the opportunity to demo the latest DLC for Just Cause 3, the Land Mech Assault pack.
After the previous DLC Sky Fortress gave the main character Rico Rodriguez a massive air power upgrade, this DLC returns him to the ground, where he can take control of an array of enemy smashing mechanized weapons. For those unfamiliar with the series, here’s a quick synopsis:
“The Mediterranean republic of Medici is suffering under the brutal control of General Di Ravello, a dictator with an insatiable appetite for power. Enter Rico Rodriguez, a man on a mission to destroy the General’s hold on power by any means necessary. With over 400 square miles of complete freedom from sky to seabed and a huge arsenal of weaponry, gadgets and vehicles, prepare to unleash chaos in the most creative and explosive ways you can imagine.”
Square will also have demos of I Am Setsuma, a retro RPG that pays homage to the 16-bit era glory days, and Hitman, the sixth entry in the franchise following the exploits of assassin Agent 47.
Square Enix Collective

The Turing Test
First up, a first-person puzzler from Bevel Studios, the developers that brought you Pneuma: Breath of Life.
“Take control of Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency (ISA), and progress through a narrated story of introspection and morality whilst uncovering the hidden mysteries of Europa. Delve into The Turing Test’s human interaction puzzles and arm yourself with logical and methodical thinking.”

Black The Fall
The other game with a playable demo, Black The Fall, was developed by Sand Sailor Studio and will be set in a communist dystopia.
“Playing as Black, an obedient factory worker, you get one chance to outsmart the oppressive system, but the road to freedom is paved with puzzles, pitfalls, and manipulation. A door malfunctions, an opportunity arises. Once out, what will you do to survive?”
Once again, it looks like they’ve picked an interesting game to highlight.
