Square Enix Presents – Summer Showcase – E3 Show
Square Enix has also been offering its own show at E3 for several years now. As the rights holder of games for brands like Lara Croft, Final Fantasy, Deus Ex, some Marvel titles and many other great franchises, there are almost always interesting games and nifty surprises here as well.
Here’s the complete ShowCase, then all the games again individually:
Square Enix Presents Summer Showcase
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy
Right at the beginning, Square Enix brought their big hit, you could say. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a single-player, story-heavy action adventure with very light RPG touches, such as skill and dialog decisions.

Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster
Final Fantasy is a role-playing game series that has been around for almost 40 years. And many of the first parts came out for platforms that don’t even exist anymore. So it’s perhaps an interesting idea that Square Enix is now re-releasing Final Fantasy parts 1-6 in the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series for Steam and mobile.
Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster – E3 Teaser Trailer
Legend of Mana
Just like the old FF parts, Legend of Mana is being remade.
Release: For Nintendo Switch, Ps4 and PC on Steam on June 24, 2021
Legend of Mana Opening Movie – Nintendo Switch und Steam Re-Release – E3 2021
Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther Expansion
Marvel’s Avenger has been out for a while and now gets plenty of new content with the Black Panther expansion, including randomized boss fights, so it shouldn’t get boring quite so quickly.

A whole series of conversions of popular series to mobile is following:

Platinum Games, the developers of Nier, are working on a new brand called Babylon’s Fall, which, as the name suggests, incorporates references to the ancient history of the Babylonian empires. It’s a story RPG that will be playable as a single-player or with up to four players in co-op. It is planned for PS4, PS5, and PC (Steam).
Release: Soon, Closed Beta now: https://babylonsfall.com/beta/

Life is Strange Remastered Collection
Life is Strange is a great work of art from Dontnod. The mystery and time travel adventure around the teens is a special experience. Now Square Enix offers a remastered version of all previously released parts as a collection.
Release Date: September 30, 2021

Stranger of Paradise – Final Fantasy Origin
With Final Fantasy Origin, Square Enix is bringing a whole new series that will apparently bring some spinoffs and pre-sequels of the great Final Fantasy series in a whole new quality. Stranger of Paradise comes in 2022 with some villains that have already appeared as bosses in Final Fantasy Part 1.
Release Date: 2022
Stranger of Paradise – Final Fantasy Origin – Announcement Teaser Trailer
PC Gaming Show 2021 – E3 Presentation of the PC Gamer magazine
The US PC gaming magazine PC Gamer has been hosting its own show for a few years now, which in Corona times was a mix of trailer presentation and live-action game-like interludes. It wasn’t the greatest humor of all time, but at least more entertaining than 25min of unscripted developer blah-blah per game, like certain other “shows”.
With Narakada Bladepoint comes a PvP Battle Royale with Asian swordplay, looks fancy, who likes PvP, may want to take a look here. You can do this right now because the beta goes from June 16 to June 22.
Release Date: August 12, 2021 for PC on Steam and Epic Store.
Narakada Bladepoint – Gameplay Trailer – PC Gaming Show E3 2021
A shoot’em’up with balls, somewhat reminiscent of dodgeball.
Release: 2021 for XBox, PS4, Switch and PC
Dodgeball Academia Announcement Trailer – PC Gaming Show 2021
Chivalry 2 has been out for 1-2 weeks, but still it was presented again in the PC Gaming Show. Well, 64 player PvP swordplay with lots of blood and carnage, that’s all there is to say. But the developers have already announced new content at the same time.
Chivalry 2 post Launch Content – Gaelencourt Map Trailer
A game similar to Splatoon, where some chefs bash, chase and smear everything with sauce, cooking pots and soup ladles. Looks funny, definitely nothing ordinary.
Rawmen Gameplay Trailer – E3 2021 PC Gaming Show
Dying Light 2
Dying Light is a zombie shooter, but somehow also very much more. Parkour elements, special story, and a humans-on-the-roof-and-zombies-in-the-streets setting make for a slightly different premise. At the same time, it also looks really good. A developer now shared some details about the story of Dying Light 2.
Release Date: December 07,21 for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Series X/S & PC
Dying Light 2 Trailer + Story Background – PC Gaming Show E3 2021
There wasn’t much gameplay to see from Humankind this time. Instead, the British streamer and gaming show host Frankie Ward shows how she came into the game as an avatar. And it was also again pointed out to the currently starting beta and the release in August.
Release Date: August 17, 2021

They Always Run
A sidescroll jump’n’run with swords and guns, puzzles and at least some story.
They Always Run – Reveal Trailer – E3 2021
Orcs Must Die 3
The tower defense series Orcs Must Die has been around for a number of years. But this year, a new edition is coming with the third part, which is supposed to offer better graphics as well as some new gameplay elements. So Orcs Must Die 3 is a third person tower defense, mostly in the dungeon but now also in large outdoor areas, and you and your friends would now have to fend off attacks from hordes of orcs and trolls.
Release Date: 07/23/2021 for Playstation, Xbox and PC on Steam
Orcs Must Die 3 Gameplay Trailer – E3 2021
Vampire the Masquerade – Swansong
At least for me quite unexpectedly, a new Vampire the Masquerade game was presented. Swansong is a rather story-heavy action-adventure in the Vampire universe. No release date is known yet, but it is supposed to be released for all consoles and in the Epic Store.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong – Gameplay Trailer – E3 2021
A multiplayer arena monster beat’em’up in which monsters smash each other and destroy entire cities in the process. Released for PS4 and PC, date unknown.
GigaBash Gameplay Trailer – PC Gaming Show E3 2021
With Lemnis Gate comes a very unusual game with a very new twist in gameplay. This is a turn-based tactics first-person shooter. It combines strategy with sci-fi multiplayer shooter gameplay. Everyone plays for 25 seconds, and then it’s the opponent’s turn.
Open Beta in July
Release: August 03, 2021

Next Space Rebels
In Next Space Rebels, rocket building is to be democratized. Everyone can build rockets, from the worst scrap metal if necessary. And at the end of the game, they can report on it in the virtual in-game social media and have it rated. That’s more or less the game principle of Next Space Rebels.
Next Space Rebels Gameplay Trailer – E3 2021
Medieval turn strategy, fancy graphics, but otherwise I didn’t see anything special yet.
Release: 2021 for PC on Steam
WarTales trailer | PC Gaming Show E3 2021
Then a longer story trailer followed for Ixion, in which you could see that it’s somehow about a space station to which humanity is relocating because the planet Earth is at its end. Unfortunately, it’s not at all clear in the trailer what the game is about and what kind of gameplay is offered. If you look on Steam, you can see that it’s a base-building strategy game, similar to Spacebase Startopia (see review here), but with a more serious and less comic-like style.
Ixion reveal trailer | PC Gaming Show E3 2021
Far – Changing Tides
Far – Lone Sail is getting a sequel. However, the game principle seems to remain the same.
Far: Changing Tides Gameplay Trailer – E3 2021
A special cartoon art style makes this game instantly recognizable. Besides that, it probably offers a build-up strategy with family planning and the course of society over generations.

Content Updates for Killing Floor 2 and Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries
New content was announced for Killing Floor 2 with Interstellar Insanity and for Mechwarrior 5 with Heroes of the Intersphere.

A very artistic swimming platformer in black and white, in which you travel underwater as a diver. In the process, you send your soul into fish and other animals to solve puzzles.

Hello Neighbor 2
Hello Neighbor is getting a sequel and it continues as before, only prettier and more complex. Hello Neighbor 2 will be released for Xbox and PC on Steam in 2021.

Jurassic World Evolution 2
The same trailer as at the Geoff Keighley Kickoff Show, I’m just mentioning this for completeness. Release for Ps4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X/S, and PC on Epic Game Store and Steam.
Slightly generic looking Soulslike action combat RPG where a female fighter is accompanied by a ghost.
Release: 2022 for Ps5, Xbox Series X/S and PC on Steam.

Warhammer, spaceships, thick armor, demons and lots of carnage is coming here in 2022
Warhammer Chaos Gate trailer | PC Gaming Show E3 2021
No, that’s not a spelling mistake, the game is really spelled with just one “e”. A Russian horror story shooter that looks pretty nice, I think.

A multiplayer co-op and PvP Lumberjack fun-brawler.
