Gaming has become such a big part of our lives in recent years, especially in the last year because of the pandemic. And because of it, it has become hard for people to buy games. Here we will talk about where to get free games, but not games that are always free, but games that become free for a limited time.
Epic Games Store
The company behind Fortnite launched its own launcher in December 2018. And with that, they created a program called “Get a Free Game Every Week.” And they are continuing to do this until this day. They have given many great games, including GTA V, Batman: Arkham Collection, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Civilization 6, Ark: Survival Evolved, and many more. Every Thursday, you get new games, sometimes just one, and sometimes you get multiple. This is one of the best ways to get these games. Even though they might not be the best games with the best graphics or the newest games, they are still good games and free.
This might seem weird, but I don’t mean Reddit as a company is giving free games. There are specific subreddits dedicated only to sharing free games; these subreddits are r/FreeGameFindings, r/FreeGamesOnSteam, r/GameDealsFree. Every single day people post games that are free for the moment. Even though most of them might not be great games, they are still free, and if you like them, you can get them.
Previously known as Twitch Prime, this is not technically free since you have to pay a small amount each month. But I cant tell you how many times I have encountered people who have no idea that they can also get free games with this subscription. Plus, you can get some other great things with this so that it might be worth it.
Giveaways are also not that good of a fit with the list, but they still count. You can find them easily on different subreddits. You might not have chances of getting them, but you can still try.
There are some more ways you can get free games, one of them is Humble Bundle. Even though they do not do this very often, they sometimes give away games; the last game they gave was the F1 2018 in early August. Another way is by using Reddit again, and in this case, a specific sub, which is r/GiftofGames there, you can ask for people to give you the game. Some might not like that, but if you want a game, you can try; people are very generous in that subreddit.
There are many ways out there to get free games; the most reliable one is the Epic Game Store games since they are consistent with that. Reddit is another way to go since most of the methods mentioned here include that platform. By going into the subs that I have mentioned, you can find new games or cosmetics almost every day. I can also say that companies tend to give away games during special occasions, so during those times, be on the lookout for that. Other than that, enjoy the games you’ll get with these methods.
