Xbox - Games with Gold

PlayStation 5

Just as a note, Hunter’s Arena: Legends was mentioned twice as there are two different copies available (one for PS4 and one for PS5) - so make sure you grab the one that is right for you.


All of the above will be available to download between the 02nd of August and the 06th of September.



PC - Epic

In addition to the Xbox and PlayStation games, the Epic store will be giving away various games in the coming weeks. Unlike previous entries, the free Epic store games will be posted to the blog weekly as they are announced.

You can check out the current free games here. And we will be posting Thursday, every week, with the new line-up.

PC - Prime Gaming


Last but not least, did you know, if you have Prime Gaming (formerly known as Twitch Prime), you could also be missing out on the free games which come included within your monthly subscription? For the current free games, check out this link here.


If you have not already got Prime Gaming, check out the benefits and in-game rewards you could be missing out on here.

How do I claim these games?

To make it easier to claim the Xbox and PlayStation games, I have linked all of the titles to their respective entries on the relevant stores. And you will find each of the Epic store entries, linking their titles to their separate entries on the Epic store too.

Thank you very much if you have read the post this far, and I hope there is something above that you will enjoy. For now, though, have a fantastic day and happy gaming!
