Gamescom is just a few weeks away - and we’re excited to announce what Square Enix is bringing to this year’s show.


In a worldwide first, fans at Gamescom 2019 will play a hands-on demo for MARVEL’S AVENGERS!

Gamers at the Square Enix booth will battle as Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor experiencing the preliminary incident of this original Avengers story, launching on September 4, 2020, simultaneously for the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, Stadia, and PC.

Play the Beta first on PS4. Pre-Order for Beta Access at www.playavengers.com


For the first time in Europe, visitors will experience the highly anticipated FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE, with a hands-on demo showcasing the reimagining of the iconic original game that re-defined the RPG genre.

Across 72 stations, show attendees will get their first look at the game before its release for the PlayStation®4 system on 3rd March 2020.

Trials of Mana

This remake of an RPG classic makes its global debut at Gamescom with a new playable demo!

Trials of Mana completely rebuilds the original (which is playable in COLLECTION OF MANA), with modern 3D graphics and new action RPG battle, levelling and skill systems.

Attendees will be able to experience an early section of the game at the Square Enix booth, and try out just some of the amazing characters that will be playable in the full game, when it comes out in 2020.


It’s going to be a good Gamescom for FINAL FANTASY XIV Online fans. The critically-acclaimed MMORPG arrives at the show, bringing intense challenges and great prizes with it.

There will be a number of stage shows across the week, featuring makers of the game, including Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida and Main Scenario Writer and World Lore Creator Banri Oda. The programme culminates with a big cosplay competition on Friday 23 August.

Also, on the evening of Friday 23 August is the next FINAL FANTASY XIV Online Fan Gathering. It’s going to be the biggest FINAL FANTASY XIV Online fan gathering to ever take place in Germany, so Cologne had better get ready…

Life is Strange 2

Life is Strange 2 will debut a trailer for Episode 4 ‘Faith’ at gamescom 2019, ahead of the episode’s release on 22 August.

In ‘Faith’, the Diaz brothers’ journey towards a new life in Mexico reaches its most thrilling and complex stage yet.

The trailer releases 19 August, so watch out for that.


Having surpassed 5 million shipments and digital sales following its launch earlier this year, the critically acclaimed action-RPG KINGDOM HEARTS III returns to Gamescom 2019 with playable demos from worlds inspired by Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Hercules and Disney Pixar’s Toy Story.

Merch and board games

Anyone who heads over the Square Enix booth will also get a first-hand look at some of the latest merchandise and board games.

As well as a sneak peek at merchandise prototypes for FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE, you’ll also be able to get some hands-on with the latest Square Enix board and card games, including Tomb Raider Legends: The Board Game and FINAL FANTASY TRADING CARD GAME.
