Games with Gold in June 2021: which games are on offer?
For the month of June 2021, Games with Gold is offering four different titles for users to checkout for free. This also includes popular and some not so popular games. The games available with Games with Gold in June 2021 are as follows:
1. NeoGeo Battle Coliseum
NeoGeo Battle Coliseum is a 2-on-2 tag team fighting game released in June 2005. This is the oldest game available in Games with Gold for June 2021. We could see similar game mechanics to other popular fighting games. But the developers Atomiswave has given the game its own unique characteristics to the game, allowing it to have its own personality from the crowd.
In the game, players only need to defeat one enemy on the opposing team. There is also a single player mode where the players are introduced to a series of survival based battles. Keep in mind that these fights take place within a time limit, and if the players are unable to decide between victory or defeat, a timeout will occur. And timeout is not what the players should be looking for because when timeout occurs, the players are taken to a boss character. Good luck completing the levels on time! Those who want to try it NeoGeo Battle can try it from June 1 to June 15.
2. Injustice: gods among us
No, this is not the Among Us of inner laziness, this is another Among Us game that has nothing to do with that game. Joke apart, Injustice: gods among us is one of the most famous names in the Games With Gold lineup for June 2021. This fighting game featuring characters from DC Comics has been popular for years. Gamers can now add this game to their collection for free.
This 2013 game is developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. At the time of its launch, injustice was widely acclaimed for its unique take on iconic DC heroes. Along with its compelling story. This different take on the heroes and villains of DC Comics has been critically acclaimed. Injustice: Gods Among Us will be available for download from June 16 to June 30 for Games With Gold users.
3. The King Bird
The King’s Bird is an indie platformer released in 2018. This game was developed by Serenity Forge and published by Graffiti Games. This game is a simple time passing game accompanied by minimal art style for the images. This game tries to target those who want to enjoy their free time without putting too much stress into the game.
Players have to seamlessly transition from running to flying and make their way through different levels while maintaining a high speed. This game can be compared to that of Sonic the hedgehog as both focus on fast-paced gameplay, requiring players to react quickly. Players who have played games like Super Meat Boy could see that both games share the mechanics of precision platform gameplay.
But this never means that The King’s Bird is a copy of either of the above two games. The developers have done their best to give the game its own personality and stand out from the crowd. If you have the Games with Gold subscription, you can try it The King’s Bird from 1 to 30 June.
4. Shadows: Awakening
The next game on the list is an RPG game from 2018. Shadows: Awakening is a unique isometric single-player RPG combined with real-time tactical combat. In this game, the players have to take control of a demon summoned from the shadowy realm. This demon consumes the souls of fallen heroes. The capabilities of this game can be compared to those of the Diablo series.
Those who want to try it out will have to wait until June 15 as the game is not free to play. This game will be free to play until July 15. Besides Xbox, this game is also available on various platforms including PlayStation and Windows.
