Free games from the Epic Game Store
For years and years, Steam seemed unstoppable. It was the store front for PC games. How could any company possibly compete with such an anchored power plant? It turns out that the answer is: by offering tons of high quality games for free.
Anyone with an Epic Games Store account can download at least one free game each week from their online retailer. This is an added benefit, and one you should take advantage of on a weekly basis if you enjoy free games. And who does not?
Free games from Amazon Prime Gaming
Free games and DLC with Prime
Get a new set of free PC games every month, plus DLC for popular titles.
Amazon Prime members receive a number of free PC games every month. Admittedly, you have to sign up for Prime, which costs money, but if you are already a member for free shipping or Prime Video, you might as well take advantage of the free games every month. In addition to free PC games every month, Prime members also receive in-game items in all sorts of titles, from Destiny 2 and League of Legends to Red Dead Online and Star Wars Squadrons.
Unless you really like indie titles, it’s probably not worth signing up for Prime just to get free games. Prime’s free PC games are not usually as big or well-known as the Epic Games Store distributes for free. But if you are already a Prime member for the many other benefits, there is no reason not to take a look at what is offered each month.
