The PC game releases we're most excited about in June


The shadow of Shadow of the Erdree looms over the rest of June's releases, and Elden Ring obsessives are already too busy imagining themselves playing its first expansion to focus on anything else. For the rest of us, though, there are some cool new games this month, including a promising horror game from Dear Esther  developer The Chinese Room.

It's also that special time of year when we're inundated with videogame trailers and announcements. The usual showcases are back whether we call them E3 or not: find the full schedule below.

For a more zoomed-out view of what's coming out on PC this year, check out our big list of 2024's upcoming PC games.

June's big PC release dates

Destiny 2: The Final Shape | June 4
Destiny 2's latest expansion takes us inside The Traveler, the giant god sphere that's been hanging out in the sky since the first game released almost a decade ago. Inside we expect to finally confront the series' Big Bad, the corpse of whom we will presumably turn into a sweet new exotic weapon.

Still Wakes the Deep  | June 18
A horror game set on an oil rig from the famed developer of Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, and definitely one to look forward to. After playing about a third of it, Elie said that Still Wakes the Deep "gets the fundamentals of horror just right."

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree  | June 20
The biggie: Elden Ring's Shadow of the Erdree expansion is finally here. If you're planning to replay Elden Ring before entering the Land of Shadow, Wes suggests trying out the Seamless Co-op mod.
