May had a great selection of big gaming releases including Battleborn, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, DOOM and my personal favourite Overwatch.
This month there’s another great selection of titles due for release. My pick of the month was going to be No Man’s Sky but that’s now delayed until August.
If you’re struggling to decide what to purchase in June or just not sure what’s coming out, don’t worry I’m here to lend a hand. I’ve picked my top 10 of the bigger releases that will be coming to console, handheld and PC during the month.
Please note that the dates mentioned are the currently expected UK release dates and subject to change, dates for other regions may vary.
Dangerous Golf (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
If you can imagine a mash-up between Golf and the Burnout series then you’ll have an idea of what to expect. From the founders of Criterion Games, Dangerous Golf puts players in a variety of indoor environments where the aim is to create as much destruction as possible. It looks like crazy amounts of fun, check out the trailer below to see it in action.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
A new Mirror’s Edge has been one of our most anticipated games for what feels like forever. It’s been an eight year wait so hopefully it’s been worth it. Faith Conners returns in Catalyst where players can learn her origin story.
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
The eighth Sherlock Holmes title from Frogwares arrives this month. Players again take the role of the master detective as they track down clues, make deductions and solve mysteries. The new title is promising a fantastic adventure, brimming with action sequences and the most immersive Sherlock game yet.

A new platforming adventure for everyone’s favourite cute pink blob. Kirby is back with his trademark copy abilities and this time also has powerful Robobot Armour as well. There’s also two minigames to play – Team Kirby Clash and Kirby 3D Rumble.
Mighty No. 9 (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS Vita, 3DS, PS3, Xbox 360)
Mighty No. 9 is a side-scrolling action game that takes inspiration from some of the best 8-bit and 16-bit classics. The game was Kickstarted by Keiji Inafune and is promised as a spiritual successor to his most famous game, Mega Man. Definitely one for platforming fans.
