There were so many new game releases to choose from in May that we highlighted 20 games instead of our normal 10. My top picks for May were Life is Strange 2 – Episode 3, American Fugitive and Rage 2.
June is the start of the normal summer drought which is good news for our wallets. After a few big releases at the start of the month it goes quiet until the final week. There’s still some decent titles coming out though across each of the platforms. As usual there’s something for everyone.
Of all of the June releases, I’m most looking forward to My Friend Pedro on PC which looks absolutely mental and heaps of fun. I’m also keen to check out Hell Let Loose and The Sinking City.
Here’s a full list of my 10 games to watch out for in June 2019:
