Square Enix has detailed its E3 line-up, which includes the Tomb Raider reboot, Hitman Absolution, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Final Fantasy XIII-2.


If you're at the event, you'll want to visit booth 1647 in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center to experience the publisher's latest offerings firsthand. Here's the full line-up, in Square's words:

  • TOMB RAIDER, from Redwood City-based studio Crystal Dynamics, ratchets up the intensity and takes gamers into the world of Lara Croft as they have never seen before.

  • WAKFU is a fantasy MMO adventure with a tactical combat system and a unique anime style from Ankama Studio.
