With the grandiose gaming event that is E3 almost upon us, you’d think June would be whisper-quiet when it came to game releases. However, June sees the release of some very interesting titles for single player gamers. Here’s what you should keep an eye out for this month.

 

Murdered: Soul Suspect

Developer: Airtight Games, Square Enix Japan

Publisher: Square Enix

Platform(s): PC, Playstation 3, Playstation  4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Release Date: June 3 (NA)/June 6 (EU)

After developing Quantum Conundrum and Dark Void, Airtight Games look to set their sights on the murder mystery genre with Murdered: Soul Suspect. The game focuses on the spirit of Detective Ronan O’Connor whose goal is to solve the mystery behind his own murder by using his new-found spectre powers.

Combining elements from LA Noire and Ghost Trick, O’Connor can examine the world around him by using his ghost powers to overhear conversations, possess police officers or to jog memories to help them find clues. Murdered: Soul Suspect looks like it could be a very interesting story and adds to the rather limited selection of “detective genre” games on major consoles and PC.

Valiant Hearts

Developer: Ubisoft Montpellier

Publisher: Ubisoft

Platforms: PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Release Date: June 25

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is Ubisoft’s brand new puzzle adventure game being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier. The game is inspired by letters written during the Great War and inspires four strangers to turn around the life of a German soldier and help him find his true love.

The game is powered by Ubisoft’s “UbiArt Framework” engine which was used for games like Rayman Origins, Rayman Legends and the recently released Child of Light. The former two games in that list were also developed by Ubi Montpellier. Valiant Hearts has very striking illustrations and puzzles that are true to the time frame of the Great War.

Enemy Front

Developer: City Interactive
Publisher: Bandai Namco Games
Platform: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC
Release date: June 10, 2014

Finally, last but not least, Enemy Front sees the return of the WW2 genre that gamers have been clamouring for. The game stars Robert Hawkins, an American stuck in Nazi terrirtory at the height of WW2. You can choose to snipe your enemies or sneak past and sabotage their positions in open ended missions throughout the Third Reich. Could this be WW2 version of Behind Enemy Lines?

So that about covers the single player games for June. You can expect a lot of news for upcoming games coming out at E3 2014 this month so be sure to check the site often for in-depth coverage on the event.

  1. Well Enemy Front has multiplayer too but campaign will be better

    1. Yep, we know it has multiplayer. We cover games with MP, but not the actual MP part. Just the single player campaign.

  2. Wow, slim pickings this month – good job Watch Dogs is so massive then! Having said that, Murdered looks decent…

    1. June’s always slow. Sniper Elite III does come out this month as well, but the campaign isn’t really anything notable, just a fun game in general.

      1. sniper elite is coming out already? Hopefully it has more nonlinear maps than the last one and better stealth.

  3. enemy front is said to have nonlinear 10 hour campaign so i am interested at that.

  4. Enemy Front was a complete and utter shambles. If you buy Enemy Front expecting great things, let me remind you that there are games with infinitely better AI than the dumb fucks eminent in this game. Lagged on a high-end system, wasn’t very much fun after a while, and realistically, too much effort was made with graphics than *ANYTHING ELSE* in this game.
    Buy that POS at your own peril.
    As for the Soul Suspect, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it does have one hell of a plot, is beautifully rendered, is -however- only likely to take less than an afternoon to finish, but still worth getting, simply because it is that good.
    I can’t say anything about the other one because I haven’t played that one, and I don’t think I will because it’s not for me.
    But I cannot stress enough how much of a really bad flop Enemy Front is. If you get it and you hate it, don’t say I didn’t tell you. You should also see the ratings it got on metacritic – some were pretty damning.
