Free Games Available For Download On PC, PS4, Xbox One, And More

We may be stuck inside, but luckily, there are a ton of free games available to claim or play right now.

72 Comments

While various parts of the US have different rules when it comes to social distancing under the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are still spending a lot of time indoors. To help people kill time, online storefronts and developers are giving away a bunch of free games right now across PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile. Because there are so many freebies floating around right now, we've rounded up all the games that are free for a limited time so you can easily claim any you're interested in. This list won't include any games that are normally free-to-play--like Fortnite, Call of Duty: Warzone, and Apex Legends--but you're sure to find something to fall in love with, whether it's an old PC classic, a must-play iPhone game, or a brand-new game.

The freebies span multiple platforms and storefronts, with most of the options available on PC from stores like Steam, GOG, and Itch.io. You can currently snag The Alto Collection and Remnant: Rise From Ashes for free on the Epic Games Store, and there will be another free game next week. Nintendo also released a surprise fitness game about jump-rope, and you can get it for free until the end of September. And for a limited time, Bethesda is offering free copies of Quake 3 on their proprietary client.

You may already be subscribed to a service that gives you access to free monthly games. PlayStation Plus, Xbox Live Gold, and Twitch Prime all currently have free games available for the month of May.

On top of that, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is currently $1 for your first month. Ultimate gives you access to a huge library of games on both Xbox One and PC, in addition to all the benefits from Xbox Live Gold, including those free monthly games. There are a number of other similar services like PlayStation Now, EA Access, Origin Access, and UPlay+.

We'll keep this list updated as more free games become available, so stay tuned throughout the week. Games that have recently been made available for free are in bold. In the meantime, check out all the free games you can claim on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile below. If you're looking for more recommendations, check out some of the best movies, TV shows, and games to get for social distancing.

@haloschism: Use IsThereAnyDeal. https://isthereanydeal.com/

I check it every day. It lists freebies and sales across many sites.

You can also compare the price of a game across different stores at a glance, and make waitlists and get notified when sales happen.

Can you differentiate when you update the list what's new and what was on the last list? It would make things much more organized.

I know that many people go crazy for the actual action games, but there are hundreds of good old FREE DOS games in sites like Abandonia, Abandonia Reloaded, Juegoviejo or Home of the Underdogs, to mention a few. For example, the Home of the Underdogs have 5325.

@kintoneo: A coworker told us, it seems a friend let him know but now neither remembers from where they got that. I guess it was a news note from a page they check.

Whenever I type google.com, a lot of times I end up typing "gog" on the address bar and end up going to that dumb gog.com site. What a crappy website.

Epic has been killing it with their free games. Steam blows. You have to sift through hundreds of hentai games just to find anything remotely decent. Now that I’ve typed that out, I realize that part of Steams popularity is because of all the nerds who love hentai.

On a different note; I can’t be the only one who forgot Stadia existed. I give it 2 more years, tops, before Google abandons it.

@streetshark: steam popularity is proof that customers (or just most people) usually don't have good memory. Having a deluxe Half Life 2 retail that becomes pretty usuless once you validate the cdkey is an insult to you people that want to build a collection of the greatest games ever, DRM is a big thing thanks to them, but theyll justify it with features like discussion boards and achievements.

I do love me some Epic Store!

I've been waiting for GTA V PC to go under $10 forever. Free is even better.

@Pyrosa: Satisfactory is the only game I've bought there so far. 66 freebies and counting. Just too good to wait for steam.

Th e GOG games aren't even worth attaching to our library..

Ultima 4??? wtf! Atleast the Ubisoft titles still are playable.

And if one doesn't have access to AssCreed 2 remaster then PC is for sure the way to go.

Atleast if you care about grahics at the expense of performance...

Im assuming of course. I never played AssCreed2 on PC.

But I do know it's the best Asscreed game except for maybe BlackFlag.

But that's just cause the ship battles are fun..

***Speaking of ship battles!! Wheres that Ubisoft pirate ship game?

it's been years!!!

This list just gave my gaming backlog a really bad case of mud-butt. And to think yesterday I thought I was actually making some headway with my backlog. 🤣

@jsprunk: incidentally all I played was Biomenace when I was a child with an old windows 3.1 packard bell PC. It was all I could play. Now I have a muddled backlog with more games than time to get trough, and I'm getting Biomenace!

@jsprunk: J'sprunk,,,TMI incoming!!!

*Few days ago I had stomach ache & went to basement storageBin with OLD

PC GAME & GameInformer & Gamepro magazines and pulle dout a 2014'ish

PC Gamer. It had Fable Legends on cover & GTA V was "coming soon"

now you have an idea of the time frame.

*Reason why I mention this to you= backlog assistance!

Dude theres 2 sections that deal with "old games to play"

and "this months backlog suggestions"

One of the games was StarWars Empire @ WarOrder Number: 71702450

and the other was Farcry 2 (different issue)

*I since started browsing my old mags form 2008-2015 for ideas.

Because most new games are either ruine dcrap like MassEffect did with Andomeda or

Fallout76... Just thought i'd thwo this at ya since you & I have both talked about backlogs more then once..

ESP in a time where we own thousands of games & it's no longer about $$ being the reason we play or don't play like it was back in the day...

Between Steam,HumbleBundle,,Xbox Live & PS+= the backlog is through the roof..

*Also,,i did recently hook up my PS3 & 360 when my brother mailed me a HDMI 8 port hub

and a AWESOME expensive 12 port power plug w/ some kind of super short circuit protection..

As you & I both know= too many plaugs into too many sockets & power strips in 1 room will flip the circuit... If interested i'll tell ya the power strip I got etc..

But the PS3+Xbox360 getting hooked back up was because I saved my games instead of trading em or whatevs & have about 150Xbox and 120PS3's,,but I was surprised at how many digital titles I owned(u probably too) that I only realized once I hooked up my PS3 and saw the library.. most are from PS+ but some sales here/there..

~TMI mode=off

;D

@drinner: It was free on The Epic Store like a month ago. Not sure why it’s mentioned here.

Edit: It looks like this article got started over a month ago, but wasn’t edited properly.
