Another set of games across different platforms like the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC is either free to own or free to play this weekend depending on where you're playing and what subscriptions you have. This weekend, those looking for free games have a lot to pick from since it's the first weekend that the routinely offered games like PlayStation Plus and Xbox Games with Gold giveaways have kicked in, and Xbox's Free Play Days offer is back on for the next few days as well. Couple that with a few free-to-play games on the PC and you've got a lot to pick from.
Just as they usually are, the free games available via the monthly subscription offers from PlayStation Plus and Xbox Games with Gold are free for players to keep so long as they maintain their active subscriptions. In the case of the PC games, you'll need an account for the proper marketplace to get the offer and will have to play those games through the corresponding launcher after you've downloaded them.
Regardless of what you're hoping to get and whether the games are free for people to own or just to play for a while, you only have a limited time to get the games before their offers expire. Some are available for longer periods than others, but it's probably best to avoid waiting on them anyway so that you don't miss out.
Check out all the free games you can play this weekend below and drop us a comment to let us know what you're planning on spending your weekend with.
