If you are more into platformers, hack and slashes, or even RPGs, June 2021 has some major game releases just for you.
From a list of more than 10 games releasing in June 2021, in this piece I will break down a few of them, giving you all the essential information about them.
1. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
The game follows the events of Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus and 2016’s Ratchet & Clank. In this stand-alone storyline, the characters will explore different worlds and multiple realities as they try to stop Doctor Nefarious, their archenemy, from collapsing all existing dimensions.
As for gameplay aspects, it retains some of the core characteristics of the series, like the gunplay and all the gadgets that aid the players in their inter-dimensional adventure. However, the game also features some new interesting mechanics and concepts. This includes an inter-dimensional portal system that allows for near-instantaneous travel between different areas and worlds, and “Rift Tethers” that pull the player from one side of a portal to another, making it possible to jump through large gaps in a heartbeat.
2. Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade
Although Final Fantasy VII Remake released in April 2020 exclusively for the PlayStation 4, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will release on June 10 as an enhanced version for the PlayStation 5.
The game follows Cloud Strife, a well-known and fan-beloved character, who joins the eco-terrorist group AVALANCHE to fight the powerful Shinra Electric Power Company, himself being a former Shinra soldier. The main objective of the AVALANCHE group is to prevent the Shinra Corporation from using the planet’s life essence as an energy source.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will be an enhanced version that will mainly focus on the visual aspects of the game, utilizing all the upgrades that the next-gen has given us.
Also, if you acquired Final Fantasy VII Remake for the PlayStation 4 you will get the enhanced PlayStation 5 version for free.
3. Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance
Based on the famous tabletop game Dungeons & Dragons, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance will be the third game in the Dark Alliance series.
The game was officially announced with a teaser shown at The Game Awards 2019.
Regarding the platforms in which the game will be available, it is set to release for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
Developed by Tuque Games and releasing on June 22, the third-person RPG will be set in the Icewind Dale region and will have the following playable characters: Drizzt Do’Urden, Catti-brie, Bruenor Battlehammer, and Wulfgar.
Featuring both single-player and multiplayer modes, and also an online co-op for up to four players, the game will allow the player to choose any of the four characters and even to swap between them whenever the player chooses to do so.
4. Scarlet Nexus
The story of the game is set in a near-future where humanity develops technology based on human brain substances, which grant superhuman abilities. The individuals that possess these kinds of powers are recruited to the OSF, the Other Suppression Force. The purpose of the OSF is to protect the Earth from the mindless monsters named Others.
As for gameplay aspects, the player will choose between two characters, Yuito Sumeragi and Kasane Randall, both members of the OSF. They both are equipped with short-range weapons and powers that allow them to control and move objects with their mind.
A skill tree will also be a core aspect of Scarlet Nexus, which will be used to upgrade the protagonist’s powers.
5. Chivalry 2
Releasing June 8, Chivalry 2 will certainly please the hack and slash genre fans.
Developed by Torn Banner Studios and published by Tripwire Interactive, this game is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
Primarily announced at E3 2019 by its publisher, Chivalry 2 launched an open beta these last couple of days, running from May 27 to June 1.
The action game can be played from either a first or third-person perspective and gives players a plethora of weapons to fight with. Some of these weapons are axes, bows and arrows, and long swords. Players can utilize a various list of moves, like attacks and blocks, going from horizontal and vertical slashes, as well as stabs and blocks. The game allows players to chain these moves together to perform powerful and deadly combos.
One other rather interesting fact about the game is that it gives the players the ability to pick up the dismembered limbs of their opponents and use them as weapons.
As for game modes, there will be a Team Deathmatch mode, supporting up to 64 players. In the Team Objective mode, the players will have to work together to break into the opposite team’s castle and kill their king, while also having to defend their castle from being stormed into.
The month of June will definitely be exciting if you are a video games fan. Regardless if you have a PC, a PlayStation, or an Xbox, there will be a new game waiting for you to dive right into it.
