EA Sports NHL 19

With a variety of games this month, the first game we have up for Games with Gold is EA Sports NHL 19. If you are a hockey fan or just an avid sports fan, check out this exciting sports title developed by EA Vancouver and published by EA Sports.

As similar to other sports games, you can build your player and compete against over 200 renowned hockey players. Comparing this installment to previous games in the series, the skating has more acceleration, action, speed and definite improved responsiveness.

There are new gameplay modes that include battle royale while also gathering loot boxes for your player. Whether you play in a single-player campaign to compete your way to be a pro or play along with your friends, don’t skip out on this intense hockey title!

Rivals of Aether

Next up, we have Rivals of Aether. Check out this indie fighting game that was developed by Petra Jurošková and designed by Dan Fornace. Characters can summon the power of Fire, Water, Air and Earth and duke it out against other players. These elemental attack-based moves also affect the stage, which changes up things.

Similar to Super Smash Bros. fighting game-style, you must knock your opponent off the stage while adapting to stage changes in order to win. Up to four players can play against each other locally or up to two players online. Find out more about the planet through its story mode while battling your way to victory.

Portal: Still Alive

Third game we have on the list is Portal: Still Alive. Developed and published by Valve, the ever popular and darkly comic story is back! If you aren’t familiar, you are a test subject in this evil laboratory and players must break the laws of physics using ‘portal’ technology.

Portal: Still Alive introduces 14 brand new bonus puzzles that will definitely challenge your brain that even the most skilled test subject is put to the test. Manipulate and find your way through this sinister environment and experience countless hours of fun. Solve these brain-bending puzzles and try to survive!

Earth Defense Force 2017

Last, but not least to round up this month’s games is Earth Defense Force 2017. In this third-person shooter developed by Sandlot and published by D3 Publisher, fight and destroy the Ravager armada.

In this timeline, the citizens of Earth have known for four years that the alien invasion coming was inevitable. That’s why the Earth Defense Force was created so they can stop them.

Obliterate every enemy that comes your way with the disposal of multiple weapons and vehicles. Defend the planet at all costs against the hostile party with your infantry and special ops forces!

Well, there you have it. This concludes our Games with Gold for June 2019. If you’ve missed out on May’s Games with Gold lineup, check them out here. Which games did you download? What games would you like to see next month? Sound off in the comments below!
