[windbound ps4 release date]11 Video Games You’ll Want to Buy in June

  (Ratchet and Clank)

  June is shaping up to be a surprisingly busy month in the video game world. The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) makes a comeback with a digital show. Summer Games Fest also kicks off in mid-June, delivering more gaming goodness to the curious masses. And, of course, physical and digital game retailers have lots of new inventory.

  You may still have your hands full with last month’s offerings. Resident Evil Village combined RE7’s first-person gameplay with RE4’s action-heavy mechanics, resulting in a tense, yet campy, horror title. The much-anticipated Mass Effect trilogy received a graphical facelift with the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, a remaster that tweaked the original title’s gameplay.

  June kicks things up a notch by delivering dozens of promising video game, which we’ve narrowed down to 11 titles you need to check out. After months in beta, the legendary Chivalry, for example, returns with a sequel, giving bloodthirsty fans more of the first-person, medieval combat that made the original game so iconic and fun. Sony fans looking to expand their exclusive catalog have Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart on deck, an action-shooter packed with combat, platforming, and a unique, dimension-warping mechanic that changes how you progress through levels.

  These are just two of the many games we’re excited to play. Read on to see what other gaming gems June has in store, and swing by the comments section to share what you’re playing.
