Diablo 4 lilith

Best New Games Coming in June 2023

June is all about the numbers: Diablo 4; F1 23; Street Fighter 6; Final Fantasy XVI. Add them all up, and what do you get? 49. But also a ton of hotly anticipated video games. Okay, so not every game is a sequel or annual release. This month, you can also see Crash Bandicoot get competitive. Xenomorphs slaughtered. Theme parks defy gravity, and the entire cosmos is rolled into a ball. Too cryptic? Just scroll down. Cricket 24 is also slated for release. But I suspect this one will be delayed following Big Ant’s disastrous AFL 23 launch. Either way, you should charge the controllers in preparation for another big month of gaming. Hadouken!

Diablo IV

Lilith returns to the world of Sanctuary, ushering in an age of darkness and misery. Five heroes are all that stand between her and overwhelming evil.

Players will find endless evil to slaughter, countless abilities to master, nightmarish dungeons, and legendary loot as they explore the dark and twisted locales solo or with friends. Meet others in the shared world to trade items, team up to face epic boss battles and encounter others in PVP zones. Diablo IV is described as the ultimate action RPG experience. With Blizzard’s strong track record, they’re probably right.

General FAQ

What games are coming out in June 2023?

During June, you can check out Diablo 4, Final Fantasy XVI, Street Fighter 6, F1 23, Aliens: Dark Descent and Park Beyond, to name a few heavy hitters.

Does Final Fantasy 16 feature turn-based combat?

Final Fantasy 16 does not include turn-based combat. Instead, the franchise moves away from this style in favour of real-time action in an attempt to appeal to a broader and younger audience. Producer Naoki Yoshida revealed as much in an interview with Famitsu. Advances in technology allow the series to keep the familiar depth while adding complex real-time combat.

How long is Diablo 4?

Diablo 4 Director Joe Shely revealed that the campaign would conclude at around 35 hours. Of course, that's just the campaign. Diablo 3 took over 100 hours to complete everything, and Blizzard provided updates for many years. Fans are safe to expect something similar from the long-awaited sequel.
