SpeedRunners offers both local and online multiplayer action so you’ll never be without someone to mock as you leave them in the dust. This game will be available from June 1st to June 30th.
If there is no obvious solution to a problem, hack it! Watch_Dogs is an open-world third person action game which places you in the role of a skilled hacker. Using your smartphone you can hack into the city’s unified operating system which gives you plenty of opportunities to reach your goals. Try hacking the traffic lights to cause a massive car accident or crack into the bank and add money to your bank account. There’s a wide array of missions offering different types of gameplay including stealth and parkour segments. This game will be available from June 16th to July 15th.
