Square Enix PAX East Lineup Revealed

Looking forward to getting your hands on Square Enix's hotly anticipated games before anyone else? Well you can do that at Boston's Penny Arcade Expo East, or PAX East, the annual show that gives gamers near the Atlantic a big convention hall full of fun stuff.

Obviously lots of gamers head out to PAX East for cosplay, tabletop games, head-to-head competitions, and more, but Square has announced that visitors to their booth will get hands-on opportunities with three of their games.

Hitman GO takes a strategy look at Agent 47's work, but the diorama set pieces sound like an interesting change for the series. It's been developed by Square Enix Montreal but by changing the perspective, I wonder how the assassination gameplay has evolved.

We're written two previews of Murdered: Soul Suspect, the title from Airtight Games who hope to bring survival horror back to the forefront. You can read Blake's E3 preview or check out his latest hands-on with the game.

Finally, Square also want to give PAX-goers a chance at hands-on with NOSGOTH, the Humans vs Vampires game with asymmetrical multiplayer (pictured above). Alex Salo went hands-on for our NOSGOTH preview and the title sounds like bloody-good fun. Don't forget to stop by Square Enix's booth to try it for yourself.

Are you headed out to PAX East this year? Be on the look out for Anthony, but don't try to arm wrestle him. Actually, try but make sure it's on camera.
