The June 2020 will treat to exciting game releases, from Valorant to The Last of Us Part II.

After a strong month of May, June 2020 has a bunch of exciting titles in store. The first half of the year offered significantly fewer new games than originally planned due to the ongoing coronavirus situation. With a lot of titles getting delayed, the second part of 2020 will be much more fruitful. Today we take a look at the most important game releases this June.

Valorant

  • Platform: PC
  • Release Date: June 2

The new tactical shooter from League of Legends makers Riot Games took the world by storm in its closed beta. It attracted a lot of players from rival titles like CS:GO and Overwatch, with many esports organizations already having a Valorant roster. After the successful beta, Valorant might turn into a multiplayer hit that will accompany us for years. The free to play title will be released on June 2 and there's even a $200,000 tournament coming later in the same week.


Command & Conquer Remastered

  • Platform: PC
  • Release Date: June 5

The real-time strategy genre has already passed its heyday. In the nineties, the Command & Conquer series was one of the flagship RTS titles, an now it's coming back with a remaster. It includes the first part, "The Tiberium Conflict" from 1995, and the second offshoot, "Red Alert", which was released a year later.

While retaining the core gameplay, Command & Conquer Remastered comes with improved graphics and a redesigned interface.


Desperados 3

  • Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One
  • Release Date: June 16

The German developers of Mimimi Games are bringing the Desperados series into the 21st century. In the third part, we can expect the finest real-time strategy in the Wild West. Five heroes with individual abilities are supposed to provide variety. In addition, there will be neutral zones in which you can move freely while the missions come up with interactive elements.

Disintegration

  • Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One
  • Release Date: June 16

Disintegration promises to be one of the most innovative multiplayer games of the year. At its core, it is a mech-shooter from the first-person perspective but it mixes the gameplay with real-time strategy elements. In a dystopian future, you control a gravcycle - a floating mix of motorcycle and mech-robot - and go into battle.

At the same time, you command an army of AI-controlled ground units and compete against other players in various multiplayer modes. There will also be an extensive solo campaign. Sounds exciting.


The Last of Us Part II

  • Platform: PS4
  • Release Date: June 19

The successor to the legendary action-adventure from 2013 aims to set new standards on the PlayStation 4. Developer Naughty Dog is perhaps the showpiece studio for Sony consoles and has put a lot of effort into their new game.

This time the focus of the plot is on young Ellie, who goes on a vendetta in the post-apocalyptic USA several years after Part 1 and fights for bare survival. So far the title looks great and The Last of Us 2 could easily become game of the year material!

Assetto Corsa Competizione

  • Platforms: PS4, Xbox One
  • Release Date: June 23

The racing simulator Assetto Corsa Competizione has been running at full throttle on PC for about a year now. Console gamers can finally enjoy the Sim, which is entirely focused on the Blancpain GT Series. Already on the PC, the racer provided great experience both technically and in terms of gameplay.

Since realistic racing games are extremely hard to come by right now, we are looking forward to the title and to burning some laps on legendary courses such as the Nürburgring, Silverstone, Zandvoort or Monza.
