XBOX Games With Gold June 2020
The latest games with gold have been announced. There are 4 great games to play this month and to be honest, they’re a lot better than last month’s total disappointment.
Here’s what’s available in with your Games With Gold in June:
- Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse
- Coffee Talk
- Destroy All Humans!
- Sine Mora
Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse
Available June 1 to 30 on Xbox One
Embark on an exciting adventure with your favorite hair-whipping, belly-dancing genie. After losing her magic abilities, Shantae must team up with her nefarious nemesis, Risky Boots, in order to save Sequin Land. Slay monsters, battle epic bosses, and obtain new weapons in a quest to remove an evil curse from the land and gain back her magical powers in the process!
This looks like real fun! The screenshot above gives a boss fight vibe from the original sonic game. I think the graphics make this game a must play for all gaming nerds.
Available June 16 to July 15 on Xbox One
Lend an ear to your customers as you serve up hot drinks behind a bar. As a barista owner in this soothing and relaxing game, immerse yourself in the stories of the city’s fantasy inhabitants where progression is based on the variety of beverages you serve.

Love the graphics on this one, you can pre purchase the game over at Steam.
Available June 16 to 30 on Xbox One & Xbox 360
Time is the ultimate factor. Rather than the traditional health status bar, this old school style shoot ‘em up sets itself apart by focusing on massive destruction and time manipulation. With gorgeously crafted stages and deeply challenging Story and Arcade modes, you will test your abilities in this excellent entry to the shmup genre.
This old school style shooter looks great. The retro vibe may put some gamers off, but not us! We can’t wait for this one to become available. It’s just a shame it’s only available from 16th June – 30th June.
