Free Games for January 2021

With the festive season having been and gone, and those long nights still drawing in, you may find yourself asking, what free games will I be able to get this month for PC, Xbox and PlayStation? Have no fear; I have you covered.



Xbox - Games with Gold


This month’s games for the Xbox, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Xbox 360, are available to any Xbox player with a current Xbox subscription. The specific titles you will be able to get your hands on are:


Xbox


  • Breakdown | Available between the 16th and 31st January.

Unfortunately for Breakdown, there are no official trailers from the Bandai Namco or Xbox YouTube accounts nor is there one on the Microsoft Store.

PlayStation - PS Plus

PC - Epic


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


For the last fifteen days of December, I have been tweeting out the brand new game been given away every day, but there will be a new blog post every Thursday, with the new line-up, starting from next Thursday (07th January).


The current free game though, available from the 31st December through to the 07th January is Jurassic World Evolution just in case you missed the final tweet when it went out yesterday.

PC - Prime Gaming


And 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 any of the games listed above, I have linked them to their respective entries on the Microsoft, PlayStation and Epic stores so redemptions will hopefully be quick and very minimal effort.



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