Welcome to June – we’ve got robots, we’ve got reMix, we’ve got Resnarkled (I didn’t make that word up, they did) and other things like DLC but I couldn’t find a way to make them start with “r”. There is plenty to get to for console and PC, so let’s jump in!

In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you’ll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before – and perhaps never will again.
Thronebreaker (Console) – June 18
Thronebreaker is a single player role-playing game set in the world of The Witcher that combines narrative-driven exploration with unique puzzles and card battle mechanics. Crafted by the developers responsible for some of the most iconic moments in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the game spins a truly regal tale of Meve, a war-veteran queen of two Northern Realms — Lyria and Rivia.
