Square Enix are showing off their best upcoming games at the Eurogamer Expo

If you weren't happy with the Eurogamer Expo announcements as of yet perhaps these great announcements from Square Enix will convince you to head down to the show...as long as you can pick up a ticket in time. Square Enix will be showing off two of their hottest upcoming titles which will put smiles on everyone's faces including the whole Gamercast team.

To kick it off IO Interactive will be showing off their new-to-the-series online mode known as Contracts which was announced recently at Gamescom. This new level will be shown off in their developer session which is the last of the sessions on Thursday the 27th at 17:30, which will be a great way to end the first day of show if you're attending during the week.

"We're delighted to welcome IO Interactive and Hitman: Absolution back to the Eurogamer Expo to show us more of their exciting new gameplay mode!"said, Tom Bramwell, Operations Director of Eurogamer.

Crystal Dynamics will also be holding a developer session by walking through a longer version of the Crossroads that has previously been shown at E3 to press only. However as long as you're at a good place in the queue you'll be able to see it for yourself on Sunday the 30th at 13:30.

Tom Bramwell, Operations Director of Eurogamer, said: "Lara Croft is a British icon, so it seems fitting that Crystal Dynamics should choose London's Eurogamer Expo to give gamers an in-depth look at her latest adventure.

Plus the best news yet is that you'll have the chance to play both games on the show floor, meaning you'll actually be able to play the new Tomb Raider, something that not many people have been able to do. The exact demo of Hitman: Absolution hasn't been mentioned but it could be Streets of Hope or maybe even our own taster of Contracts.

There's now just under a month before the annual Eurogamer Expo; plenty of time for even more announcements, so get on down to London's Earls Court from 27th-30th September 2012. You can buy tickets from their website which are quickly selling out, it's not even possible to buy a ticket for Saturday anymore.
