June 2016 Game Releases

A fairly quiet month ahead really with not a lot of big releases for June. One of the reasons for this is the confirmed delay for No Man’s Sky. This title is now looking like an early August release and the internet has been rife with stories about Hello Games receiving death threats for delaying the game again.

So what’s left for June then? Here goes on what I think are going to be the highlights:

Elite Dangerous - Horizons

Travelling on the planet with your SRV is pretty damn awesome.  I love watching your own ship come in and land, reminiscent of the auto piloted ships in Aliens.

Elite Dangerous: Horizons (Xbox One)

With the recent patching of this game (not all of the initial results being good – see here for more details) Xbox One users on June the 3rd will finally get a chance to land and explore on planets, plus take advantage of engineer tech. This is no doubt the highlight for me in June and I am sure I will be playing hours and hours of Elite: Dangerous this month. Having played a fair chunk of this yesterday the Horizons season pass is definitely worth picking up. It just made a great game even better and it has sucked me in even more.

I really think No Man’s Sky will have to be something truly wonderful to knock Elite Dangerous: Horizons off the top spot.

Mirror's Edge - Catalyst

Mirrors Edge Catalyst is a prequel to the original game.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

Those of you who have played Mirror’s Edge will know that this is the sort of game that can induce vertigo quite easily. An interesting 1st person platformer that had you playing a character called Faith in a dsytopian world parkouring all over a fictional big brother type city. I’ve played the first few levels and Faith’s backstory is handled within a plot line now, plus the controls for combat and free running have been heavily tweaked. If you liked  the first Mirror’s Edge game you’ll love this. If you didn’t really get into the free running style of gameplay it most likely won’t change your opinion.
