Every Free Game Available For Xbox, PlayStation, PC, And Switch

2 days 20 hours ago

While gaming can get quite pricey, these days there's almost always something great that you can add to your library without spending a dime. Entirely free games pop up every single week thanks to the Epic Games Store, and with the help of bargain friendly subscription services, there are literally hundreds of games out there that come as perks with services on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC. We've rounded up all of the free games (or free with subscriptions) that you can play now. We'll continue to keep this list updated weekly.

Our free games list focuses on full experiences that you can play without the pressure of microtransactions, so you won't find popular free-to-play games like Fortnite, Warzone, or Apex Legends here. We also aren't including free-to-start games such as Destiny 2 or Hitman 2's Starter Pack. But if you are looking for free-to-play games, we have lists rounding up the best options on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Free PC games

Unrailed

When it comes to free games, those who game on PC tend to have far more options than console players. There are always new freebies up for grabs for PC. It's pretty common for seriously great games to be offered free of charge for a limited time. In addition to games that are temporarily free, PC storefronts are filled with entirely free experiences that you can play from start to finish without the pressure of microtransactions.

Epic Games Store free games

The Epic Games Store leads the way in terms of popular and big-budget free games. For the past few years, Epic has given away hundreds of free games, including AAA blockbusters such as Grand Theft Auto V, Control, and Civilization VI. At least one free game is available at Epic each week, but often times it's two free games. Here is the current free game available at Epic.

Amazon Prime free games

One of the perks of an Amazon Prime membership is free PC games. Subscribers get to claim a handful of free games via Prime Gaming, and they are yours to keep even if your subscription lapses. Prime members also get free in-game content for popular multiplayer games each month. Here's a list of August's free games for Amazon Prime members.

  • StarCraft: Remastered
  • Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
  • Beasts of Maravilla Island
  • Recompile
  • ScourgeBringer
  • Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises

Free Steam games

Well-known games aren't regularly discounted to zero dollars on Steam, but there are still hundreds of freebies to check out without spending a dime. It'd be virtually impossible to list every free Steam game here, so we've chosen to mainly highlight recent releases as well as games from popular and classic franchises. If you're looking for even more free games on Steam, check out this page and focus on the titles marked as "Free" instead of "Free to Play."


Free games at GOG

CD Projekt Red's PC storefront GOG has a collection of free games, many of which are classic PC shooters and role-playing games. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Ascendant
  • Beneath a Steel Sky
  • The Elder Scrolls: Arena
  • The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
  • Loria
  • Shadow Warrior Classic Complete
  • Samorost 1
  • Stargunner
  • Ultima 4: Quest of the Avatar

Free games at Itch.io

Itch.io is a really great storefront for independent developers. There are thousands of free games on Itch.io as well as games with a pay-what-you-can payment model. Plus, you'll find some really interesting and experimental indies. It's always fun to dig around the storefront in search of hidden gems.


PC Game Pass

If you're looking for a way to play tons of different PC games for cheap, PC Game Pass is the way to go. There are hundreds of PC games on Game Pass, including Age of Empires IV, Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, and Microsoft Flight Simulator. We have a full list of PC Game Pass games that we update each time games are added and removed. PC Game Pass costs $10 per month, but new subscribers can get their first month for only a buck. It's worth noting that PC Game Pass is included as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate ($15 per month).
