Square Enix headliner Final Fantasy 15 is skipping this year’s E3 but will be getting a brand new demo in the near future

E3 is generally the place where all the major developers and publisher step up to the plate with their biggest upcoming titles. It is the event gamers and journalists wait all year for; despite last year’s lackluster performance. At last year’s expo the new console generation was just beginning and no one was ready to show off. This year however is expected to be far bigger. Titles like Halo 5: Guardians, Kingdom Hearts 3, and more are likely to make an appearance. Making an announcement today from Square Enix all the more surprising to the gaming world.

Hopes for Square Enix for this year’s E3 were especially big following the announcement they would be holding their own stand alone press conference after their floor show. Fans have been speculating on what they will be packing to the show. Square Enix has several major titles in development that gamers are craving new information on, including Rise of the Tomb Raider and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Two games fans were all but certain would make an appearance at the show were Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy 15. At least one of those games will be making its way to the expo.

Final Fantasy 15 game director Hajime Tabata has announced the game will be a no show on Square Enix’s Active Time Report briefing. Instead plans have been made to showcase the game at Gamescom in Germany this August. Tabata reasons for holding Final Fantasy 15 back should give fans some amount of comfort.

E3 doesn’t give us sufficient time to fully prepare. So I have been discussing with our marketing teams, and we’ve actually been considering Gamescom in August, instead of E3, as the target for the next major reveal.”

It’s a reasonable response to hold back the next reveal of their blockbuster title. Fans will obviously want as much time with Final Fantasy 15 as possible. Still the announcement brings up questions about what else Square Enix will be leaving out of this years E3. Kingdom Hearts 3 is an equally big reveal and if Final Fantasy is being held back for Gamescom whose to say Kingdom Hearts won’t get the same treatment?

Square Enix did announce a way for Final Fantasy fans to get a look at the next title in the series before Gamescom in August. They plan to release a new version of the Final Fantasy: 15 Episode Duscae demo. The new version of the demo takes players through the same content that has been updated based on fan feedback.

Giving them an inside look at how the game is evolving and to see how their input is affecting the game. They weren’t ready to give a firm date on the release of this new demo but the odds are high it will be sometime before the Gamescom show in August.

In the ongoing conflict against the Automaton invasion fleet, the Helldivers 2 players have successfully halted their advance. However, the situation has now reached a tiresome stalemate. Yet again, the machines refuse to take a break from their relentless pursuit of progress, with reports emerging of the Factory Striders being deployed in record-breaking quantities.

There have been reports of alleged machines that were supposedly encountered during Operation Swift Disassembly, which was just the beginning of a larger campaign. However, these accounts should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are unverified and seem to be more on the imaginative side. Factory Striders have gained a reputation as formidable weapons platforms that can produce more Automatons while enduring significant damage. If the machines are able to withstand such a relentless assault, it will be necessary to develop innovative strategies.

Have you come across groups of Factory Striders in Helldivers 2? Which strategies are proving to be the most effective in taking down these armored brutes? The Orbital Railcannon Strike will prove to be a valuable asset in the comments section below.

Todd Howard affirms that the timeline of the Fallout series is coherent and well-constructed

The recent release of Amazon’s adaptation of Fallout has ignited a renewed interest in the series and brought attention to the captivating alternate history that forms its foundation. Fans have expressed concern that the TV show’s events might be at odds with the plot of the Obsidian Entertainment video game New Vegas. Warning: Spoilers ahead for New Vegas and Amazon’s show!

Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard and Fallout TV executive producer Jonathan Nolan recently sat down with IGN to discuss the timeline. Howard was taken aback when showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet presented him with the surprising concept of obliterating Shady Sands, the bustling capital of the New California Republic, in the aftermath of the events in New Vegas. Howard eventually warmed up to the idea: “After discussing it, we realized that this could be a significant story moment that many things hinge upon.”

It seems that they had to make some tough decisions to ensure everything fell into place, but Howard emphasizes the importance of preserving the integrity of the Fallout timeline: “We take great care with the timeline. There seems to be some confusion in certain areas. However, all the events from the previous games, including New Vegas, did occur. We take great caution in that matter. We’re really pushing the limits here, but the explosions occur right after the events of New Vegas.

What are your thoughts on this? Is it up to par? Even though it may not have a significant impact on the overall quality of the games or show, it is comforting to know that those in charge are paying attention. We value your feedback and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.

Evaluating Fallout 76’s Value in 2024

If you’ve been keeping up with the new Fallout show on Amazon Prime, chances are you’ve been relying on PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium to access and enjoy one of Bethesda’s legendary RPGs. We decided to bypass the highly acclaimed Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3, opting instead to explore the vast landscapes of West Virginia in Fallout 76. Infamous for its initial reception, Todd Howard’s “Fallout with Friends” has evolved significantly over the past six years. However, does that imply the game is of high quality? Is it worth playing in 2024?

As we ventured out of Vault 76 for the very first time, we were determined to find the answers to those burning questions. Recalling our escapades on the Push Square YouTube channel, we encountered quest-giving NPCs—a feature that was surprisingly absent upon release—awe-inspiring bases built by fellow players—and an abundance of loot that could easily burden us 76 times over.

In the midst of the vast array of open-world online experiences, we found ourselves quite enthralled by the combination of 50s classics playing in the background as we obliterated the heads of ghouls. And to top it off, we were able to enjoy all of this with our friends. Exploring the wasteland in the company of a ragtag band of survivors adds a unique element to Fallout 76, setting it apart from other games in the series. However, does it manage to prevent us from uninstalling and transitioning to one of the mainline entries in the series? To discover more, be sure to watch the complete video!
