15 PS4, Xbox One, and PC Games to Play for Free This Weekend

The final weekend of August brings PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC users another selection of games to play or own for free for the next couple of days. Some of those games have been free for a while now while others are just free for the weekend, but in pretty much every case, the games will only be available for a short time. You’ll need a subscription to consoles’ online services for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One games, but for the PC, you’ll just need an account on the correct launcher.

Some of the games that have been around for a while and are once again free for the weekend are the Xbox Games with Gold titles and the PlayStation Plus games. PlayStation’s free games have been available throughout the month while most of the Games with Gold games will be gone when the month ends save for one that’s sticking around till mid-September. Both the Steam and Epic Games Store marketplaces are also offering their usual selection of free games for the weekend, and Xbox has brought back its Free Play Days promotion for the next few days.

Two games bolstering the lineup of free-to-play titles are Predator: Hunting Grounds and Rainbow Six Siege. The first of those is offering a free trial for a few days while the other is free to try across all available platforms.

Regardless of the platform you’re on, you can see all the free games to play or own this weekend listed below.
