Upcoming Games June 2018

Upcoming Games June 2018

June may not be a heavy hitter in terms of gaming when compared to previous months, but it’s packing its own collection for all tastes and platforms. With our quick overview, we make sure all these upcoming games won’t slip under your radar. Off we go!

Vampyr

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One
Release Date: June 5

Vampyr‘s is Dontnod’s next RPG undertaking after the well-deserved momentum they scored with Life is Strange. This time though they are turning atmospheres around, taking us to the streets of a plague-ravaged London and into the shoes of a troubled doctor who combines his will of doing good with his own vampire condition.

While the game retains some narrative nuances that we saw in Life is Strange (plenty of decision-making moments with great interactivity levels), there’s a new and welcome fighting dimension here. Playing as protagonist Jonathan Reid does not only mean studying and preying on victims but also battling your way through the unforgiving night. You can check how combat feels like in a recent gameplay video by PlayStation.

If you are into Gothic tales and hear the echoes of Bram Stoker’s creation in your mind, then you’ll probably enjoy the Vampyr experience. We’ll be surely playing it here in The Game Fanatics and share with you all our impressions.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset

The Elder Scrolls

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One
Release Date: June 5

There may be rumors of a new Elder Scrolls game in the works but one thing is certain: The Elder Scrolls Online keeps on growing. June 5 marks the arrival of the second standalone expansion after the Morrowind one, which opens up new areas, skill trees, dungeons and world bosses.

Players will be able to access an area that has not been playable since The Elder Scrolls: Arena (launched in 1994). The Summerset Isle, or the home of the High Elves, serves as the starting point for the expansion and its main storyline. On top of that, players will unlock a full new skill line by joining the Psijic Order and also try their hand at jewelry crafting, which will bolster their powers even further. Time to call all your guildies and get your heroes moving!

MotoGP 18

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One
Release Date: June 7

Motorcycle fans should surely mark the arrival of MotoGP 18 on their calendars. The latest installment in the series is using Unreal Engine for the very first time, meaning you’ll get an even more realistic racing experience.

Apart from the general graphics jump, MotoGP 18 comes with improvements in its physic and AI systems. The game includes all main pilots and competitions from the corresponding MotoGP season, including 19 official circuits. You will also enjoy the lightning and collision enhancements and a vibrant eSports community. If you play on Switch don’t you worry: developers have confirmed it will arrive shortly after. So stay tuned for that!

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido

Sushi StrikerPlatforms: Nintendo Switch, 3DS
Release Date: June 8

As its name reveals, Sushi Striker is a game about… sushi. Or more specifically, about a young fella called Musashi who is trying to revert the ban on sushi his empire has called for.

In The Way of Sushido, we fight one-on-one battles against CPU-controlled enemies. Our aim is to match as many sushi plates of the same color as possible. These plates are placed on different conveyor belts that, of course, keep on moving in an agile, if not racing, fashion. The more color matches you do, the more sushi Musashi eats, attacking the opponent with those empty plates. Sushi Striker also features an online multiplayer so you can also challenge your friends to see who’s the quickest “sushido” warrior of all time.

Jurassic World Evolution

Jurassic World Evolution

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One
Release Date: June 12

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is arriving in cinemas by the end of June. But if you cannot wait to play God with DNA strings and get the handles of your own thematic park, then follow the track of Jurassic World Evolution. The game is all about managing the park of your dreams, from dinosaur hatching to the construction of amenities and attractions.

Jurassic World Evolution definitely drinks from its spiritual predecessor, Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis (2003). In that sense, you will also be able to jump into a helicopter and patrol your park from the heights, hunting down any Rex on-the-go or shooting antidotes for your dinosaurs’ afflictions. You will also be able to toy around with the geography and venture into safari photographing. With the unique Jeff Goldblum guiding your steps as Dr. Ian Malcolm and bits from the original soundtracks, Jurassic World Evolution is a good choice for every movie fan with a love for management games.

LEGO The Incredibles

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 12

From a partnership with Walt Disney and Pixar comes LEGO The Incredibles. The latest installment in the series proposes us to take control of the Parr family as they defeat Super Villains and crime underdogs, one district at a time. The game follows the storyline of the original two movies so there will be plenty of unforgettable scenes around to relive.

As with previous LEGO games, The Incredibles is a third-person action adventure in which teamwork is key. Each family member comes with their own abilities and power. When combined, these powers will allow you to traverse the open-hub world, unlocking different central and side quests. Overall, The Incredibles looks like tons of fun but you’ll surely enjoy it even more if you dig the movies.

The Crew 2

The Crew 2
Platforms:
 PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One
Release Date: June 29

Time to head again into a world where speed and adrenaline rushes collide. The Crew 2 is the newest racing proposal from developer Ivory Tower, who already led the development of the previous The Crew game (2014). This title repeats the persistent open world environment of its predecessor, albeit way bigger and more polished. It also allows you to drive something more than cars and trucks. Planes, motorcycles and boats make their debut in the series, plus a new system to switch seamlessly between them. And yes, this looks even funnier than it sounds.

Similar to the first game, The Crew 2 also goes heavy on multiplayer and it features a cooperative multiplayer mode, enabling players to team up in different rally raid events. Narrative pillars are being discarded here for a system of driving hubs that cater to different playing styles, allowing players to do what they really want: off-road racing!

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Wolfenstein II
Platforms:
 Nintendo Switch
Release Date: June 29

Ok, yes, Wolfenstein II is technically not new. But it is the fact that the highly-appraised sequel is finally coming to Nintendo Switch. It took some months for this to happen but now you can challenge the evil Frau Engel and her Nazi army with your Joy-Con and Pro Controllers. This is yet another great title that expands the Switch catalog even further, something we cannot but celebrate.

If you have not yet played The New Colossus, don’t forget to check Ben Running’s review on it to discover why we gave it a 9 out of 10.

Last but not least, if you are into motocross and muddy, almost impossible jumps, then you should follow the release of MXGP Pro by the end of the month. This new title comes empowered by the Unreal Engine and promises to take all the sensations of motocross to a new level.

Different sports celebrities have worked with the team in the so-called PRO Physics, a new system that grants realism and that extra challenging touch. You can create your own rider and climb the ranks in Career mode or leave competition aside and indulge in experimentation inside the Compound area, a wide training ground to unleash your gravity-defying dreams.
