This is the permanent home of our guide to currently available and upcoming free games for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. We'll update it whenever new titles are announced.

New and upcoming free games by platform

Note that games available via Microsoft's Games With Gold, Sony's PS Plus, Amazon's Twitch Free With Prime, EA's Origin Access, and (when it arrives this fall) Nintendo Switch Online require a paid subscription to those services in order to download their free games. Other games do not require a subscription, though they may require the installation of special software (e.g., Origin, Steam).

Just-added games are marked with the NEW symbol below.

    It's not free on PS4

    Rainbow Six actually is free this weekend. We had the wrong Microsoft Store link before, but it has been corrected.

    Title of the page is "This Month's Free Games" but the Rainbow Six Siege game isn't free... You should probably mention that.
