Microsoft has announced the four games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in June 2020.
We can’t decide if the first of June’s Xbox Games with Gold is well-timed or not. Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is a colourful exploratory adventure from WayForward full of vim and vigour. The problem is, so is Shantae and the Seven Sirens, the latest game in the series which comes to Xbox One this week. If you haven’t played either, and you’re an Xbox Live Gold member, we’d recommend starting your adventures by taking on the Pirate’s Curse.
The month’s second Xbox One title is Toge Productions’s Coffee Talk. It’s an engrossing tale of coffee, conversation, and counselling set in Seattle populated by aliens, elves, mermaids and orcs. It’s a heartwarming and thought-provoking game.
June’s Xbox 360 games – also playable on Xbox One via Back Compat – are Pandemic’s Destroy All Humans! and the cult shoot ’em up, Sine Mora.
The latest crop of Xbox Games with Gold titles are available to download and keep during the following dates.
Xbox Games With Gold – June 2020
- Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse – June 1 – 30, 2020
- Coffee Talk – June 16 – July 15, 2020
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Destroy All Humans! – June 1 – 30, 2020
- Sine Mora – June 16 – July 15, 2020
Meanwhile, two of last month’s free Xbox games – V-Rally 4 and Overlord II – remain available to download until Sunday. Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is available until June 15, 2020.
