The next entry in the Diablo series is finally here, and so you know what that means: goodbye social life.

It officially launches 6th June, but pick up the Deluxe or Ultimate edition and you can start playing 4 days early.

Park Beyond

If you’re a fan of theme park building simulators, then you’re going to want Park Beyond on your radar this June. We’ve previewed the game a couple of times, and we’re excited to play more. With a focus on building “impossible” rides – roller coasters that fire you out of rockets, or Ferris wheels that split into three – it allows you to really go wild with your imagination. It looks great, and it’s easy to get to grips with, too.
