Xbox One console owners with a Gold subscription will soon be able to download a new range of free games. The Games with Gold June 2020 has been announced today by Microsoft and the first titles will become available to claim on the first of the new month. As always, these games will be staggered through the month, with platformer Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse going live on June 1, 2020. This will be followed by Coffee Talk on June 16, and that’s without mentioning the other bonuses.
Destroy All Humans will be available to download on June 1 and will be replaced by Sine Mora on June 16.
Destroy All Humans comes straight from the original Xbox and is available to download and play on Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility.
The full Xbox Games with Gold June 2020 release schedule is as follows:
- Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse: Available June 1 to 30 on Xbox One
- Coffee Talk: Available June 16 to July 15 on Xbox One
- Destroy All Humans!: Available June 1 to 15 on Xbox One & Xbox 360
- Sine Mora: Available June 16 to 30 on Xbox One & Xbox 360
But while Microsoft is sticking to its usual release schedule for its free games program in June, Sony has other ideas.
A surprise announcement this week revealed that Call of Duty WWII would be releasing today on the PlayStation Store.
As confirmed by Sony on social media “Call of Duty: WWII is part of the monthly games lineup for June, and will be available for download starting May 26.
“We’ll share additional details of our monthly lineup later this week.”
This doesn’t follow the usual pattern for PS4 gamers finding out a PS Plus release but will come as a welcome surprise.
As mentioned above, the old COD game can be downloaded today, without having to wait until the normal June release date.
It should also be noted that at least one other game will be announced by Sony for its PlayStation Plus program.
It’s unclear at this time whether WWII will be treated as an extra download for June, or if gamers can expect one other title.
More details regarding Sony plans will be announced very soon and should confirm the usual two-game policy.
