¡¡¡¡free games you can claim right now

¡¡¡¡For the past decade or so, free game giveaways have been huge across both PC gaming and home consoles. Programs like PlayStation Plus and Xbox free Games with Gold have made it the norm for users to expect free games on a semi-regular basis, to the point where pretty much every major gaming platform has some kind of “free” game promotion going on at any given time. Sometimes these free games are bundled with subscriptions that include other services, but other times that are truly free and require nothing from the consumer beyond a claim.

¡¡¡¡At the time of this writing, there are free games available for the Epic Games Store and Steam on PC, as well as a variety of games available for “free” through the PlayStation Plus and Games with Gold programs. Sometimes these games are available for a week and other times they are available for up to a month at a time, but anyone looking for something to play without actually buying has plenty of options at the moment.

¡¡¡¡Every month, Sony gives away free games through the PlayStation Plus program, usually consisting of two games for PlayStation 4 gamers and one game for PS5 gamers. Of course, thanks to the PS5’s backward compatibility with PS4, those with the new console are really able to maximize the potential of their PS Plus subscription. Regardless, PlayStation Plus subscribers currently have three games to claim as part of the May 2021 lineup.

¡¡¡¡advertising

¡¡¡¡The free PS Plus games for May 2021 are?Battlefield 5 and?Stranded Deep on PS4, and?Wreckfest on PS5.?Battlefield 5 is the latest entry in EA’s long-running?Battlefield franchise, and with a?Battlefield 6 reveal coming sooner rather than later, it makes a lot of sense for Sony to showcase it as a free PS Plus game right now.?Stranded Deep is a survival game set in the ocean, while?Wreckfest is a vehicular combat game, with the PS5 version including a variety of next-generation enhancements.

¡¡¡¡Anyone wanting to claim these three games for their PS Plus collection should do so while they still can, as all three will soon be replaced.

¡¡¡¡Steam isn’t as well-known for giving away games, so whenever it does, it creates some buzz. And when it comes to Steam, there’s the added benefit of gamers being able to claim the games?completely free, as opposed to needing a subscription to some other service to do so. Previously, the free Steam games included both?Little Nightmares and?Company of Heroes 2, but?Little Nightmares has been removed from the lineup. Fans of strategy games can still pick up?Company of Heroes 2, however, but they will need to act fast.?Company of Heroes 2 and its?Ardennes Assault expansion are free to keep forever for anyone that claims them on Steam, but the offer expires after today.
