Square Enix may not have the most to show off at the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show in Los Angeles this week, but it does have some of the most anticipated games in development.

We'll be seeing a lot of the games in the flesh over the next couple of days, so we'll be able to talk about them in more detail then. A new video showed off the latest installment in the open-world crazy-fest and its focus on extreme weather like tornados and lightning. The surprisingly prolific Dontnod also showed some of its free Life is odd spin-off The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit coming later this month. We already know about some of the big titles to expect, but there should be a few surprises as well (Final Fantasy 16?). And whatever The Quiet Man is, we assume it's coming from the West if only because of the live-action European actors. Although it came out in Japan last year, it will finally make its way to the United States on September 4th of this year. But for those who didn't get a chance to see "The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit", "Kingdom Hearts III", "Octopath Traveler", the Xbox One edition of "Nier: Automata" the press conference might have been a little more exciting. Rumors suggest it's an Avengers-themed Ultimate Alliance reboot from the Tomb Raider devs at Crystal Dynamics, and that would be great.
