Square Enix Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announced its exciting lineup for the 2014 Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) East, taking place in Boston from April 11 to April 13.
The company’s portfolio for the hugely attended video games show open to the public features three new and upcoming titles — Hitman GO, a turn-based strategy game featuring Agent 47; the highly anticipated supernatural mystery Murdered: Soul Suspect® and NOSGOTH, the fast and brutal Humans versus Vampire free-to-play multiplayer experience.
Attendees will be able to preview and play all three games at the Square Enix booth (#548):
Hitman GO: Developed by Square Enix Montreal, Hitman GO is a turn-based strategy game with beautifully rendered diorama-style set pieces. You will strategically navigate fixed spaces on a grid to avoid enemies and take out your target or infiltrate well-guarded locations. You really have to think about each move and all the Hitman tools of the trade you would expect are included; disguises distractions, sniper rifles and even 47’s iconic Silverballers. Hitman GO is set to arrive soon on mobile.
Murdered: Soul Suspect – A new take on the action/adventure genre, players take the role of Ronan O’Connor, a detective with a checkered past, whose life is brought to an untimely end by a brutal and relentless killer. Unable to move on and stuck in the limbo world of Dusk, he won’t find peace until he can bring his killer to justice from the afterlife. Set for release on June 3, Murdered: Soul Suspect will be available for PC, as well as current and next-gen consoles.
NOSGOTH – Developed by Psyonix, NOSGOTH is a unique team-based third person PvP title pitting a variety of brutal Human and Vampire characters in a fight for survival. The two races have very different play styles: Humans have an arsenal of devastating raged weaponry and lethal devices while Vampires specialize in visceral close-up melee attacks augmented by their inhuman abilities. NOSGOTH is set in the dark fantasy world of the Legacy of Kain series and is currently in Closed Beta.
