Free Xbox, PlayStation, and PC Games to Play This Weekend

A number of games are either free to keep or free to try this weekend for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. With this being the first weekend of June, it means we’ve got a new round of PlayStation Plus and Xbox Games with Gold games to play even if some of them already released a bit earlier than they typically do. Between those two consoles and the popular Steam and Epic Games Store marketplaces on the PC platform, people looking for a new or old game to try this weekend have several options throughout the next few days.

Just like pretty much every other weekend and month of free games, some of the titles available this week are only “free” if you have a subscription to make yourself eligible to download them. All of them are also available only for a limited time to either keep or try, so you’ll want to make sure you prioritize what you play from the list based on what you’re most interested in and which ones will have their availability windows close first.

There are other free games out there for different platforms, marketplaces, and launchers, but you’ll find a number of free games below for this weekend along with information about anything that’s require to play them.

  • Call of Duty: WWII – Free to keep from now until July 6th
