All The Free Games You Can Play On PS4,PC, And Xbox One This Weekend
Fallout 76, Stellaris, Conan Exiles, and more are free to play this weekend. If you like what you play, you can snag all of the games at discounted prices.
In recent months, we've been seeing far more free games than usual, as publishers and storefronts are continuing to give away freebies to pass the time at home. Just today, the Epic Games Store started offering Grand Theft Auto V for free, and Ubisoft announced its giving away the pair of Assassin's Creed Discovery Tour games, which are both educational and fun. In addition to the many free games you can snag right now, there are a handful of titles you can try for free this weekend on consoles and PC, including Fallout 76 and Stellaris.
Fresh off of the release of the new Wastelanders update, Fallout 76 is free to try on Xbox One, PS4, and PC through May 17. If you enjoy the trial, you can keep playing after the weekend for less, as Fallout 76 is on sale for $30 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Fallout 76 is one of the three games featured in Xbox's Free Play Days. It's joined by Castle Crashers Remastered, a great side-scrolling beat 'em up, and the popular sandbox game Terraria. Both of those games are on sale for $6 during the free weekend.
Over on Steam, you can also play Stellaris for free through May 16. The galactic strategy game is one of Paradox Interactive's most popular titles. It earned a 7/10 in GameSpot's Stellaris review for its epic scale and deep lore, but was knocked for some uneven pacing. Stellaris is an experience that demands dozens of hours of play, so if you enjoy the thrilling early portion during the free play weekend, you can snag Stellaris on sale for $10 until May 18. Steam users can play Conan Exiles for free this weekend as well. The multiplayer-focused survival game has a massive open world to explore either solo or online with friends. The free weekend will let you scratch the surface, but if you find yourself wanting to play on, Conan Exiles is 50% off at $20.
In addition to the free weekend games, there are tons of great game deals on all platforms. The Eshop just kicked off a new sale on anime games; Xbox Live has steep discounts on racing titles; the PlayStation Store has three different sales running; and PC users can shop Fanatical's gigantic May Madness sale and Epic's Mega sale.
