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 and Game Pass, Sony's PS Plus, Amazon's Twitch Free With Prime, Humble Monthly, EA's Origin Access, and Nintendo Switch Online require a paid subscription to those services in order to download their free games. Other games are completely free and do not require a subscription, though they may require the installation of special software (e.g., Origin, Steam).

    Ring of Elysium should be added (it's free on Steam).

    Ok Humble bundle monthly games are CHEAP - but they're not free , nor are twitch prime games , the humble games is a bundle you pay for and the twitch prime games is a complimentary perk for prime subscribers - but again you have to pay a subscription to get them. Why not add some truly free games to the list? I recommend Arboreal - which you can find on Steam.

    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.

  • bucksfan024  

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

    Super helpful - keep it up!
