Starting out, this conference began strong, Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, showed gameplay of the stealth, and camouflage systems in the game, gave a better idea of the what was added to the game. Strangely they showed the patch 4.3 trailer for Final Fantasy 14, but that was easily forgotten with the reveal of a Monster Hunter World crossover event, other than the reveal, not much more information was given. Hopefully, with the Live Letter tomorrow they will give more information on that. They clarified on the Awesome Adventures Of Captain Spirit; the game is a prologue to Life Is Strange 2, there will apparently be hints to what and who will be in the game within the area of this, also, it will be 100% free to download. A new Platinum game was shown called Babylon's Fall was shown, and other than an interesting trailer, and a release year of 2019, not much was given, but it looks interesting.
Dragon Quest 11 showed a story trailer, not showing much, but looks interesting, with the English VA being well done. Other than the release date, which was already revealed, of 4th September, they announced a crossover event with the mobile game Brave Exvius. Just Cause 4 was shown, a decently deep dive was given, showing off the multitude of new vehicles in the game, with improved driving, also mentioned the improved combat, also giving a hint about the improved enemy A.I. who also have abilities based on their class. This game is also the largest area in the series, and also now includes more distinct areas with the inclusion of "extreme" weather, such as tornadoes, and sandstorms among other types. A short trailer; which began with FMV and moved into gameplay of a game called The Quiet Man, they will reveal more in August, likely pertaining to Gamescom in Germany. Finally they revealed a slightly altered trailer from the MS conference which included some extra story elements, some more characters, and the reveal of Ratatouille content, though unsure as to whether that is simply a summon, or a world at this time.
The biggest issue with this presentation is not only that it was only 29 minutes, and it was so early in the day for so little, but the statement of the Square Enix CEO to make sure to stay till the end, for something that didn't actually happen was disappointing. However, even with that, with what was shown, and at the speed it was shown, it was put together the best of everything so far, and didn't waste our collective time, even if they ignored certain games, such as Final Fantasy 7 remake, and Left Alive. E3 is still going, so there is still a chance to get more information on what they showed, and show things that are most exciting to their fans.
