Battlefield first cinematic trailer on 9th June 2021
One of the most anticipated titles of 2021 is making huge waves across social media. With its first trailer announcement and some cryptic messages, we finally have a date to talk about. June 9th is when EA and DICE will roll out their first cinematic trailer of Battlefield. Here we expect to see what era the game is set in and also some of the locations we may see, along with weaponry and more. Gameplay isn’t normally shown in these first trailers but it is enough to get excited about. With rumours of the game being set in 2042, will we see advanced weaponry and aircraft? Who knows, all we know is it isn’t too long now until we finally find out. With three studios clubbing together to get the job done with Battlefield, I expect it to be a contender for the game of the year 2021.
Alba: A Wildlife Adventure comes to Xbox on 9th June 2021
Join Alba as she visits her grandparents on a Mediterranean island. She is ready for a peaceful summer of wildlife exploration with her friend Ines, but when she sees an animal in danger, she realises she needs to do something about it.
This is truly a Mediterranean paradise if you ignore all the litter! From the idyllic beaches to the ancient castle overlooking the town a whole island is ready to be explored. With Ines and your grandfather – who is a total bird nerd – by your side, you can start the movement to save the island. Maybe even the world after that.
Green Hell arrives onto Xbox on 9th June 2021
Green Hell is an Open World Survival Simulator set in the uncharted, unique setting of the Amazonian rainforest. You are left alone in the jungle without any food or equipment, trying to survive and find your way out. Clinging to life, the player is set on a journey of durability as the effects of solitude wear heavy not only on the body but also the mind. How long can you survive against the dangers of the unknown?
On this journey, you won’t get any help from the outside world. Equipped only with your bare hands you’ll have to learn actual survival techniques to build shelters, make tools, and craft weapons in order to hunt and defend yourself. Constantly threatened by the jungle you’ll fight with both wild animals and tropical sicknesses. Players will also have to face the traps set by your own mind and fears that crawl in the darkness of the endless jungle.
Later Daters lands onto Xbox on 9th June 2021
You’re the newest resident at Ye OLDE retirement community, where you’ll meet a cast of sexy seniors who are all dying (not literally) to meet you. It’s a lot like summer camp, but with orthopaedic shoes, bridge clubs, and more Jell-O. It’s an adjustment as you settle in, but who knows: maybe these will turn out to be the best years of your life!

Let’s Cook Together lands onto Xbox on 11th June 2021

Prove that cooking is a piece of cake as long as you do it together!
