June 2020: Best Places to Pre-Order Star Wars Squadrons, Ghost of Tsushima, F1 2020 and More!

While EA Play was ultimately an underwhelming event for fans of FIFA, Madden, and Battlefield, one game that was well-received by fans was the upcoming Star Wars: Squadrons.

After leaks forced EA to release a trailer for the game early, we were treated to an extensive look at dogfighting gameplay as well as a release date- October 2nd.

Aside from Star Wars: Squadrons, pre-orders are open for F1 2020, which comes out in just two weeks, and Ghost of Tsushima, slated for release on July 17th.


Switch players can also look forward to Paper Mario: The Origami King, which was shadow dropped by Nintendo in a trailer in May.

Here's where you can pre-order these games for the best price.

Best Place to Buy Star Wars: Squadrons

After leaks forced EA to release the trailer for Star Wars: Squadrons before EA Play, Star Wars fans were excited for yet another great Star Wars game after Jedi: Fallen Order.

While EA Play was itself a disappointment, we saw plenty of Star Wars: Squadrons gameplay, and it looks incredibly fun.

As Squadrons comes out in October, you’ll want to pre-order your copy soon before you forget! The pre-order comes with a unique cosmetic bundle for both the Imperial and New Republic fighters, which you won’t be able to buy anywhere else given that EA has promised no microtransactions will be included within Squadrons.

Squadrons is available from both GAME and Amazon for £34.99- cheaper than most other AAA games upon release. Have EA underestimated the price Star Wars fans are willing to pay for a Star Wars game? Probably, but if you pre-order it through Amazon you’ll be protected by the Pre-Order Price Guarantee in case they decide to up the price.

Best Place to Pre-order F1 2020

Pre-orders for F1 2020 are now live and you can guarantee your copy on the release day by pre-ordering the standard edition on Amazon now!

However, the best deal for this game comes in the form of its Michael Schumacher Deluxe Edition.

Priced at just £64.99, you get a ton of extras worth much more than the £10 extra you'll have to pay.

Best Place to Buy Paper Mario: The Origami King

Since the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons earlier this year, Nintendo has been pretty quiet on its upcoming releases. The only reveal that has come since the launch of Animal Crossing came in May for a new Paper Mario title, releasing on July 17th-the same day as Ghost of Tsushima.

Both Amazon and GAME are offering Paper Mario: The Origami King for £49.99- the same price as the digital version in the eShop.

While it may be tempting to buy the download-only version of the game, a pre-order from these two stores comes with a free Origami sheet so you can handcraft your favourite Mario characters before taking down the devious King Olly!

You’ll get the best value deal if you order The Origami King from GAME, as they are also throwing in a page of Paper Mario magnets, too!
