June Game Releases.jpg

I know you are excited to try out the Batmobile in Arkham Knight, but take a moment to look at the other 26 video games also releasing in June. There are a few gems you don't want to miss. We kick of June with Heroes of the Storm, I hope Dota 2 and League of Legends players at least enter the Nexus once. On June 5th, the peculiar D4 releases on PC. According to our reviewer, Tauriq Moosa, "If you’ve read Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho, just add the strangest anime you’ve ever seen, and that’s the way the story is portrayed." Now doesn't that make you want to play D4?! On June 9th The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited unleashes. We have a TESOTU surprise coming up, so keep an eye on GameZone. Also on June 9th you can play Kholat, a game based on a real-life event;  theDyatlov Pass incident (the mysterious death of nine Russian hikers). The legendary Sean Bean narrates Kholat and his signature "always dies" follows him even in video games. Someone please, let the dude live for once. On June 23rd Bats takes on the Arkham Knight in the epic finale of the Arkham series. Better book your sick leave well in advance. Don't forget to check out the 22 other June game releases at the end of the article, if I missed games then just drop me a comment and I'll add it.

Take a look at the latest info, trailers and other details of June's top new video game releases.

2. D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die

Release date: June 5

Platform: PC (Already on Xbox One)

A foreigner who adores America, certainly, but someone whose memory is hazy, drug-fueled and oddly fascinated with wardrobe. If you’ve read Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho, just add the strangest anime you’ve ever seen, and that’s the way the story is portrayed." Tauriq Moosa
