Let's start with our top five picks you shouldn't miss out on, followed by a full list of June 2020 video game releases.
1. The Last of Us Part II - 19th
Arguably the biggest of the June 2020 video game releases is The Last of Us Part II. From everything we've seen so far, Naughty Dog is doing the original justice with an excellent sequel.
The Last of Us Part II is, of course, a PS4 exclusive. It follows Ellie, and seems to largely take place in Seattle. The recent extended gameplay reveal blew us away, with its excellent combat, style, and graphics.
It's tough to argue against this highly-anticipated sequel as the top video game release for June.
2. Valorant - 2nd June
Riot Games' tactical first-person, team-based shooter is releasing on PC early in June. Fans have been doing their best, clawing to get into the Closed Beta, but on 2nd June, everyone can join in the action.
Valorant is set to take on the likes of CS:GO, and Overwatch, for the FPS crown. With a diverse lineup of Agents, all with their own special abilities, and some great maps, Valorant is an extremely exciting release to look forward to. Unless you are DrDisrespect, who uninstalled the game after losing a bit.
3. Disintegration - 16th June
Disintegration might not be as high-profile of a release as Valorant or The Last of Us Part II, but it is still one of our top June 2020 video game releases. V1 Interactive, the new 30-person independent development studio founded by Marcus Lehto, the co-creator of Halo. This alone gives this sci-fi FPS a lot of hype.
Disintegration combines sci-fi FPS with real-time strategy elements. It puts the player in a heavily weaponized Gravcycle and tasks them with commanding troops on the battleground. There's an interesting single-player campaign, as well as PvP multiplayer to look forward to.
4. Desperados 3 - 16th June
If you loved the old Commandos titles or played the first two Desperados games, then Desperados 3 should be in your list of must-play June 2020 video game releases.
Desperados III is a story-driven, hardcore tactical stealth game, set in a ruthless Wild West scenario. It is a prequel to the beloved classic Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive. The game follows John Cooper who will join forces with several other interesting characters, through diverse environments, including frontier towns and swamps.
If you are into tactical titles, and don't mind a challenge, then Desperados 3 is the game for you.
5. Command & Conquer Remastered Collection - 5th June
Fans of old-school RTS fans should have Command & Conquer Remastered Collection on their playlist for June, and have 5th June marked on their calendars.
Both Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert are fully remastered in 4K in this collection of iconic titles. The collection includes all three expansions, modernized UI, unreleased FMV footage, rebuilt multiplayer, and even seven hours of remastered music by Frank Klepacki.
There's a whole lot of content in the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection with over 100 campaign missions, and over 250 multiplayer maps to enjoy starting 5th June 2020.
