Free Games for May 2021

As we jump from April into May, 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 family of consoles are available to any Xbox player with a current Xbox Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

The specific titles you will be able to get your hands on are:

Xbox 360

- The official trailer linked from IGN’s YouTube channel -

  • Tropico 4 | Available between the 16th and the 31st of May

Xbox One

  • Armello | Available between now and the 31st of May

If you have not already done so, you can still pick up Truck Racing Championship until the 15th of May too.

Xbox Series X & Xbox Series S

There have been no specific Series X/S games listed. However, all of the above are available to play on the Series X/S via backward compatibility.

PlayStation - PS Plus

This month’s games available for anyone with an active PS Plus subscription will be:

PlayStation 4

  • Battlefield V | Available between the 04th of May and the 03rd of June

If you have not already done so, you still have a few days to catch the current PS Plus games for April, which were Oddworld: Soulstorm for PlayStation 5 and both Days Gone and Zombie Army 4: Dead War for PlayStation 4.


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!
