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.
