Shacknews Dump - June 12, 2020

E4 is over, or is it? Truly the Summer of Doing Our Jobs never ends. Join us as we get back to routine with another Friday edition of the Shacknews Dump.


Our E4 shenanigans may have come to a close this week, but truly the grind never ends. And the news doesn’t either, which is why we’ve stored it up in another edition of the Shacknews Dump. It’s not going to be a massive payload like usual, but even a little squirt o’ news is part of our civic Dump duty.

On this June 12 edition of the Shacknews Dump, SnowRunner garnered a massive following since release and launched a new, free update in the process featuring an all-new environment. Also, after some confusion with a Sony executive, Insomniac Games steps in to confirm that yes, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a standalone new game. Meanwhile, have you been waiting to hear how good The Last of Us Part 2 is? Because we’re going to talk about how good The Last of Us Deuce is.

You can catch all of this and more as the Shacknew Dump goes live with the latest hot news topics at 1:30PM PT / 4:30PM ET on the Shacknews Twitch channel. You can also catch the channel live just below.

Here’s what to expect on the Shacknews Dump today.
