Games going Free-to-Play to keep us at home!
By Rafay Faheem 23 Mar, 20
Times like these, where everyone is requested to stay home and help fight the covid-19 spread, gamers can be proud to share their lifestyles with people of all categories. Staying inside right now is literally helping to save the world, and Game Publishers are here to help you with that!
A bunch of companies have made their games free-to-play for a limited time such as Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey (until 23rd March). But there are also games that are free-to-keep for forever (until the promotion lasts that is, you have to claim them in time to be able to keep them forever)
Epic Games Store:
Both the first Watchdogs and The Stanley Parable are free to keep on the Epic Games Store as part of their “Free Games every week” promotion! Although technically not because of the stay at home and play cause, it is still a perfect opportunity for newer gamers to catch up on both these great PC games.
If you have Steam, then it is a great time to go on over to the Steam Games Festival and try out all the anticipated indie games for absolutely free! Prominent indie games that are to be released this year are all listed for free to play on Steam as part of their ongoing Games Festival tradition that started last year.
If trying out demos isn’t your thing, Square Enix has gone ahead and made the Tomb Raider 2013 reboot free to keep along with Lara Croft and the Curse of Osiris.
GOG.com has a bunch of free-to-play games that are perfect for the situation. Along with their long list of freebies, they have also made Mable and the Wood free-to-keep on both their storefront and Steam.
Honorable Mention: Ubisoft!
Child of Light will be free-to-keep on Uplay from the 24th of March up till the 28th. Along with the Odyssey free trial, they will also have an in-game event for their Just Dance game so be sure to check that out as well!
