- Speedrunners (June 1st through June 30th). A cut-throat multiplayer running game that pits 4 players against each other, locally and/or online. Run, jump, swing around, and use devious weapons and pick-ups to knock opponents off-screen! One of the most competitive games you’ll ever play.
- Watch Dogs (June 16th through July 15th). Set in a fictionalized version of Chicago, Illinois, the game centers around Aiden Pearce, a highly skilled grey hat hacker who can hack into any device within in the city, taking hold of the entire city’s infrastructure, either to obtain and control information or to destroy such devices completely at specific times.
- Assassin’s Creed III (June 1st through June 15th), The American Colonies, 1775. As a Native American assassin fights to protect his land and people, he will ignite the flames of a young nation’s revolution.
- Dragon Age: Origins (June 16th through June 31st). You are a Grey Warden, one of the last of a legendary order of guardians. With the return of an ancient foe and the kingdom engulfed in civil war, you have been chosen by fate to unite the shattered lands and slay the archdemon once and for all.
