Square Enix Will Hold an E3 2018 Livestream Press Conference

Square Enix Will Hold an E3 2018 Livestream Press Conference

What games will we see?

Square Enix will be hosting an E3 presentation this year to show off its lineup of games. The presentation begins on Monday June 11 at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET.

On the announcement page, Square Enix clarifies that the event will be hosted over a livestream rather than at a physical venue. Square Enix says that you can tune into your favorite livestream service so presumably viewers can watch it on popular streaming sites like YouTube and Twitch.

Like the Nintendo Direct, Square Enix says that the stream will be produced in advance, so there won't be any live moments on the stream, but reveals will happen in real-time. The video will be available in English and Japanese as well.

This is Square Enix's first E3 presentation in three years, with 2015 being the last time the company hosted a public show at E3.

No word yet on what will be revealed at Square Enix's livestream event at E3, but we have some good ideas. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was recently revealed, which we previewed. There's also the long-time coming Kingdom Hearts 3 which is still scheduled to come out this year. And of course we're hoping for any new details for Final Fantasy VII Remake, even if production on it just started in earnest.

There might also be a couple of surprises. We haven't heard much about Crystal Dynamics' Avengers game, but with Thanos-fever running hot this is as good a year as any to show it off.
