Top New Game Releases On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week — June 14-20, 2020

As we near the midpoint of June, New Releases is here to bring you more of the hottest games launching each week. Two long-awaited sequels are coming soon: The Last of Us Part 2 and Desperados 3. Meanwhile, the Nintendo Switch is getting some love with Burnout Paradise Remastered and Pokemon Sword & Shield’s Isle of Armor DLC. This week is also home to a fresh new game not tied to any existing franchise: Disintegration.

Desperados III — June 16

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

The wild west tactics series hasn’t seen a new game since 2007’s Helldorado. Now there’s a new gang in town, and each of the five members has their own special weapons, like knockout gas and bear traps. THQ Nordic promises a hardcore game that requires strategy, stealth, and six shooters.

Disintegration — June 16

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Disintegration fuses first-person shooting and real-time strategy, as you command troops on the ground from the cockpit of your grav cycle above the battlefield. You have your own weapons to fire as you direct your soldiers to take cover, focus on certain enemies, and use their own special abilities. Once you’ve gotten the hang of the hybrid gameplay, you can test yourself in online multiplayer too.

Pokemon Sword & Shield – Isle of Armor — June 17

Available on: Switch

The Isle of Armor is full of tons of new Galarian forms and Legendaries to catch, including Kubfu and its evolution Urshifu. It also includes new Gigantamax forms for the Galarian starts, plus old-school Pokemon Blastoise and Venusaur. You can only get Isle of Armor via the Expansion Pass on the Switch Eshop–just be sure to buy the right pass for your version of the game, as there’s one available for both Sword and Shield.

The Last of Us Part II — June 19

Available on: PS4

There’s not much to say about The Last of Us Part 2, and not just because the game has been largely kept under wraps. We know that it focuses on a revenge-seeking Ellie, and you should expect a mix of nail-biting stealth, brutal combat, and deep weapon crafting and customization. Ellie also has new traversal options up her sleeve for exploring the game’s variety of environments.
