While a lot of big players are passing by PAX East, Square Enix will be there in style. Today the publisher announced that they'll have three different titles to showcase at the event: Hitman GO, Murdered: Soul Suspect and Nosgoth. All three titles will be available to preview and play on the show floor. For PAX goers, make sure to visit the Square Enix booth, number 548, anywhere between April 11 and 13 and see what the publisher has in store.
For those unfamiliar, Hitman GO is a mobile turn-based strategy title that's planned for release "soon", Murdered: Soul Suspect is a large-scale action adventure game where the player tries to solve their own murder, and Nosgoth is a free-to-play third-person battle arena game. That is to say, Square Enix should have something for everyone at their booth. Multiplayer, single-player and a mind-melting social/mobile game too!
In case just playing the games isn't enough, Square Enix will also be holding two different panels during PAX East:
- Murdered: Soul Suspect
- Albatross Theatre - April 11 at 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.
- Join famed IGN host Greg Miller, key members of the Airtight Games development team and renowned criminal profiler Mark Safarik as they reveal insights into Murdered: Soul Suspect and delve into the mind and makeup of killers in general. Revelations from beyond the grave GUARANTEED.
- NOSGOTH: Vampire vs. Human Action
- Albatross Theatre - April 13 at 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.
- Showcasing the latest character class in-game exclusively at PAX, Corey Davis (Game Director, Psyonix) and George Kelion (Community Manager, Square Enix) will guide you through the latest developments in this action-packed competitive Human vs. Vampire, team-based multiplayer title currently in Closed Beta. With Beta Key giveaways for all attendees don’t miss out on the chance to sink your teeth into the hottest ticket this weekend.
It's great to see Square Enix doing what they can and bringing some playable games to the community-focused PAX East event. If it's not hands-on it's not worth bringing, I'd say, because PAX East is about letting nerds have fun, socialize and share cool experiences. It's a great way for publishers to interact with the gaming community in a much more personal way than say, E3 or other big conventions.
