Top 25 of the best games of June – in chronological order:

Valorant

Developer: Riot Games
Publisher: Riot Games
Platforms: PC
Release Date: June 2, 2020
Genre: Online FPS

A great first-person online shooter that combines Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tactical mechanics with Overwatch-like character variation. Five to five matches are played on nice cards, but the game itself does not require a powerful computer. You can read more in our preview here.

Doubts: Developers use a sophisticated anti-cheat system that accesses PC memory – some conspiracy theory enthusiasts consider this an invasion of privacy.

Tour de France 2020

Developer: NACON
Publisher: Cyanide / Bigben Interactive
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release Date: June 4, 2020
Genre: Race, Simulator

Another year is another bike race against the backdrop of French landscapes – from city streets to mountain landscapes. The developers promise 21 official stages with a realistic passing mode, where it is necessary to show tactical thinking, competently managing endurance and using aerodynamics for your own purposes to become a leader and put on a cult yellow jersey. In addition, there will be a first-person view and the race Liege – Bastogne – Liege, which will appear in the game for the first time.

Doubts: The graphics look like we have before us a starter project for the Xbox 360 and PS3, and not a game from 2020.

51 Worldwide Games

Developer: Nintendo
Publisher: Nintendo
Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 5, 2020
Genre: Collection of board games and games for the party

A huge collection of various entertainment for playing in front of a TV and in a portable format. It has everything: backgammon, poker, chess, shogi, toy tennis, football, bowling and even fishing. There is a free download of three copies for guests for the cooperative and a mosaic mode that allows you to connect several console screens together.

Doubts: A small Switch screen will make the image too small for some games in a portable use format.

Command & Conquer Remastered Collection

Developer: Petroglyph
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Platforms: PC
Release Date: June 5, 2020
Genre: Real-time Strategy

The iconic RTS Command and Conquer and Red Alert were refurbished in 4K by former Westwood Studios developers. The collection includes three extensions, an updated multiplayer, modernized user menus, a map editor, a gallery of additional frames and more than seven hours of improved music.

Doubts: This is EA, so something may go wrong. But we, as usual, believe in the best.

The Outer Worlds for Nintendo Switch

Developer: Obsidian Entertainment
Publisher: Private Division
Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 5, 2020
Genre: RPG

A popular role-playing game from the authors of Fallout will be released on the Nintendo hybrid system in early June, which means that one of the most noticeable RPG projects of the last year can be played anywhere, anytime.

Doubts: The port looks and works awfully. Too blurry textures, missing trees and incredibly long loading of objects disappoint. It feels like this is not a modern role-playing game from a cool studio, but a crooked project for smartphones. Of course, Switch is not the most powerful prefix, but The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, “The Witcher 3” and Doom 2016 look ten times better there.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor for consoles

Developer: ZeniMax Online Studios
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One
Release Date: June 9, 2020
Genre: MMORPG

The long-awaited addition to The Elder Scrolls Online should please the console fans of the series, given the complete lack of news about the sixth part. The extension came out on a PC in May, where it received a lot of negative reviews due to server problems. Perhaps this experience will help to safely launch the project on consoles (thanks to PC fans for the beta test).

Doubts: Or maybe everything will happen again, and we will have a messed-up mess instead of a working game (even you can’t conduct a beta test normally).

Samurai Shodown for PC

Developer: SNK
Publisher: SNK
Platforms: PC (Epic Games Store)
Release Date: June 11, 2020
Genre: Fighting

The cult fighting series has returned from nonexistence and continues to slowly exit on all platforms in turn. In June, the game will appear on the PC in the Epic Games Store. Given the Unreal Engine 4 engine, computers should have the cutest version of all.

Doubts: Judging by the trailer and screenshots in the store, the graphics, although clearer, still look outdated.

Ancestors Legacy for Nintendo Switch

Developer: Destructive Creations
Publisher: 1C Company
Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 11, 2020
Genre: Real-time Strategy

High-quality RTS in the world of Medieval Europe will soon be released on the Nintendo hybrid system. Here you can choose one of four available nations (harsh Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, Germanic tribes and Slavs) and plunge into a bloody journey, the purpose of which is to capture neighboring regions.

Previously, the game had already been released on other systems and received positive feedback thanks to a well-developed tactical component, unique features of nations, pleasant multiplayer and nice graphics with a movie camera. Judging by the screenshots, the version for the Nintendo Switch looks adequate for the genre.

Doubts: But not the fact that there will be no other problems.

Desperados iii

Developer: Mimimi Productions
Publisher: THQ Nordic
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release Date: June 16, 2020
Genre: Tactics, Stealth

Nice tactics with interesting gameplay sends us to the colorful setting of the Wild West, where you can solve the tasks secretly, or arrange a bloody massacre. The authors of the excellent Shadow Tactics: Blades of The Shogun are responsible for the development.

Our preview can be read here.

Doubts: Nothing yet.

Disintegration

Developer: V1 Interactive
Publisher: Private Division
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release Date: June 16, 2020
Genre: FPS / Tactics

An unusual first-person shooter with tactical elements, in which the main character sits inside a flying antigrave, takes part in the shootings, but at the same time controls a detachment of armed NPCs. Not only the story campaign, but also multiplayer modes is built on this. Read the details in a big preview.

Doubts: The technical beta for the PC was good, but playing consoles was very difficult due to the control curve. We hope that the developers have solved all the problems for the release.

Summer in mara

Developer: Chibig
Publisher: Chibig
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release Date: June 16, 2020 (PC, Switch), 2020 (PS4, XO)
Genre: Strategy Adventure

A beautiful cartoon adventure about the girl Coa, who explores a vibrant island and nearby territories on her boat. The developers promise an interesting story and opportunities for arranging the environment, familiar from the series Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley. Judging by the game’s page on Steam, there will be Russian.

Doubts: The game looks very childish, and the last project of the company received average ratings due to bugs, lack of uniqueness and deep mechanics.

Hardspace: shipbreaker

Developer: Blackbird Interactive
Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One
Release Date: June 16, 2020 (PC), 2020 (consoles)
Genre: Adventure / First-Person Simulation

An unusual game that tells about the everyday life of a recycling specialist who is engaged in the destruction of space debris. The developers give you the hand of a sophisticated laser device to create slices of steel firmware stuck in orbit of a damaged spacecraft. In addition, you have at your disposal an energy whip that works in the manner of a magnetic rune from The Legend of Zelda.

You have to disassemble the structure and safely return to the station to pay off the huge debt of a large corporation. Good graphics with a detailed destruction system, pumping equipment, difficult tasks, dangerous situations and hundreds of ways to die in cold space are attached.

Doubts: It is not clear yet.

Burnout Paradise Remastered for Nintendo Switch

Developer: Criterion Games / Stellar Entertainment Software
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 19, 2020
Genre: Arcade Racing

The last part of the cult series comes out as a re-release on the Nintendo Switch. Players can explore the open city and freely choose races. All add-ons, 130 cars, hundreds of online trials and tight graphics at 60 FPS in stock.

Doubts: EA put a horse price tag on the port for the Nintendo Switch, but forgot to add something really new. In addition, the game is outdated. The gray-brown city, flat lighting and square models of cars do not cause a desire to give 3,500 rubles.

Ys: Memories of Celceta for PS4

Developer: Falcom
Publisher: XSEED Games
Platforms: PS4
Release Date: June 19, 2020
Genre: Action / jRPG

Before us is a re-release of an excellent Action-RPG with a fast combat system. The story tells of a hero who has lost his memory and is now forced to embark on an adventure in order to bring back memories.

The PS Vita and PC versions got good grades thanks to fun fights and an interesting story.

Doubts: The graphics look like the game was created for the PSP.

The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters for Nintendo Switch and PS4

Developer: Devespresso Games
Publisher: Headup Games
Platforms: PS4, Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 19, 2020
Genre: Survival horror

A great horror adventure will finally visit the console. Our detailed review can be found here.

Doubts: Most likely, the balance closer to the end of the story will not be corrected.

The Last of Us: Part II

Developer: Naughty Dog
Publisher: Sony
Platforms: PS4
Release Date: June 19, 2020
Genre: Action / Adventure / Survival horror

A full-fledged continuation of one of the most iconic games of our time promises an even tougher story than in the first part, expanded gaming capabilities in terms of exploring locations and fighting enemies, an incredible level of graphic detail and a strong atmosphere of post-apocalypse.

Before us, perhaps, one of the main nominees for the title of Best Game of 2020.

Doubts: LGBT themes in the story that have already managed to disappoint some of even the most loyal PlayStation audience.

Assetto Corsa Competizione for consoles

Developer: Kunos Simulazioni
Publisher: 505 Games
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One
Release Date: June 23, 2020
Genre: Racing Simulator

Last year’s hardcore PC simulator returns as a console edition in order to allow you to experience the real atmosphere of the GT3 Championship – with official racers, teams, cars and tracks recreated in the game with the highest level of accuracy. There will also be sprints, endurance races and tough 24-hour competitions.

Doubts: This is a game on Unreal Engine 4 from a small Italian development team, which means there may be technical problems.

Tower of Time for consoles

Developer: Event Horizon
Publisher: Digerati
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One
Release Date: 24 (PS4), 25 (NSW), 26 (XO) June 2020
Genre: RPG

An interesting RPG with an unusual combat system two years after appearing on a PC will visit the console. The developers promise adapted for the gamepad control, 7 classes with flexible pumping, a huge amount of loot, advanced magic and 200 types of opponents on which you can try it all. And, of course, an atmospheric story about adventures full of dangers inside the mystical Tower of Time.

Doubts: The original was scolded for some dampness, the story can be repeated with the ports.

Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia

Developer: Matrix Software
Publisher: Happinet Games / Limited Run Games
Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 25, 2020
Genre: Tactical Role-Playing Game / Strategy

The creators of Alundra and Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light suddenly remembered that they had once made good games for consoles and in June they will release their new project – the resurrection of the classic Brigandine series from the first PlayStation. The developers promise hundreds of hours of exciting gameplay, where you can choose one of six countries to take on the role of ruler and unite Runersia – a continent created by the runic god.

Five thousand mana stones appeared thousands of years ago and went through history with human peoples to eventually become part of the special armor that gave life to the runic knights. These individuals can wield mana power and stones embedded in their armor to use skills and magic, as well as summon and control ancient monsters.

The game features six countries of Runers, each with its own ideals, beliefs and history. By choosing one of them, you begin a campaign to conquer the world, which will lead to fierce clashes of runic knights and their troops, consisting of dragons, ghouls, fairies and other invented creatures that will come together in a step-by-step mode.

The plot of the game was written by one of the authors of the original Final Fantasy – Kenji Terada. The composer Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure and the Disgaea series – Tenpei Sato worked on the music. And the design was done by the artist Xenoblade Chronicles – Wright Kazama.

Doubts: This is a project from a niche studio that has not released anything cool for a long time. Therefore, there may be problems.

Blair Witch for Nintendo Switch

Developer: Bloober Team
Publisher: Bloober Team
Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 25, 2020
Genre: Survival horror

An atmospheric adventure in the world of forest nightmares will finally visit the hybrid system. Read our detailed review on the PC version here.

Doubts: Only as a port.

Little Town Hero for PS4

Developer: Game Freak
Publisher: NIS America
Platforms: PS4
Release Date: June 26, 2020
Genre: jRPG

In addition to Pokémon, Game Freak sometimes produces small projects for different systems. So in 2015, a funny platformer about the elephant Tembo the Badass Elephant was released, then a strange action adventure Giga Wrecker about a girl who can control garbage appeared. Last year, a small role-playing game Little Town Hero for the Nintendo Switch was released, which is now being ported to PS4.

The story tells about a boy who is trying to escape from a closed village, but then huge monsters attack the settlement, so he has to join forces with other residents to save his home.

Little Town Hero uses an unusual combat system that resembles card games, where you apply various improvements to yourself to increase damage and defense, and almost every battle is a battle with the boss.

Doubts: The Nintendo Switch version was too dull due to the slow narration, one small location for the whole game and protracted battles. It is unlikely that the option for the PS4 will be better.

Blaster master zero and Blaster Master Zero 2 for PS4

Developer: Inti Creates
Publisher: Inti Creates
Platforms: PS4
Release Date: June 29, 2020
Genre: Action / Adventure

The successful revival of the classic series has already pleased the players on the Nintendo Switch and PC thanks to the interesting metro-diving gameplay, and now it is launching on PS4. The game will play for the brilliant scientist Jason, who finds a fast battle tank Sofia and begins to explore a world full of dangers, almost destroyed by global cooling, which was followed by the fall of a mystical comet.

The research takes place both on the tank and on its own two, and the camera changes between the side option in the Super Metroid style isometric The Legend of Zelda.

The sequel added a lot of new elements, such as chain counterattacks and travel to other planets.

Doubts: None.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III for Nintendo Switch

Developer: Nihon Falcom
Publisher: NIS America
Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 30, 2020
Genre: jRPG

Another great game port. This time we are talking about a large-scale and very well-developed Japanese RPG with a huge number of well-written characters and an interesting combat system. A detailed review of the PS4 version can be found here.

Doubts: None.

Tales of crestoria

Developer: Bandai Namco Entertainment
Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
Platforms: Android / iOS
Release Date: June 2020
Genre: jRPG

In the world of Tales of Crestoria, people must always carry with them the so-called Spheres of Insight. Images recorded on these objects can be transferred to Divination Centers – structures located in important public places, such as squares and churches. When a person is judged, the Center shows footage from areas related to the crime, and then people who watch the images decide whether the person is guilty or innocent. In the event that he is found guilty, he is stigmatized with a special tag and sent to him in search of a warden who tracks the criminal and convicts him.

The place of appearance of the Spot of Guilt varies depending on the sin itself. Пятно кровавого греха – это эволюционировавшая форма такого знака, рожденная из намерения преступника нести бремя своего поступка и преодолевать порочный отбор. Его также можно использовать в качестве оружия, если человек принимает свой грех, который затем внедряется в его кровь. Главный герой игры – Каната Хюгер – узнает, что его объявили виновным, и теперь его отвергает общество, потому что он защищал кого-то важного для него.

Кроме этого, игра выделяется наличием пошаговой боевой системы, что удивительно для серии, которая славится своей быстрой экшен-боевкой, но это лучший вариант для телефона.

Сомнения: Это тайтл для смартфонов, поэтому могут быть соответствующие проблемы.
