About this list:
Especially in the current difficult time with Corona and the quarantine, it might be helpful for some people to relax with a new game as a distraction. But not everyone has money to buy new games all the time and especially not in the current emergency situation. Free PC games or even free console games are hopefully a little help for you.
I will try to keep this article as up to date as possible. But I can’t always do this 100 % correct, so please forgive me if there are games here whose giveaways have expired or if some are missing. If you notice that there is an expired game here or you know of other Free Game Giveaways, please write to me in the comments below.
Of course, this list will change every few days. I try to list new games here as often as possible. So you might want to put the link to this page in your favorites and check back here from time to time if you can download new free games.
If you don’t know exactly how to activate Steam Keys or Epic Store Keys, I’ve explained it in detail on this page. There you will also find links to my partner site Gamesplanet, where you can get games for free, but at least cheaper.
At the end of the article, you will also find links to games that are not completely free, but which you can try out for free at the moment, or which are available as a free demo.
