Download this: There are many free games to check out online, but it may take a bit to look for things you want. Well, this list did a lot of what was looking for you. Free titles ranging from indie gems to older classics are right here for you to jump into ASAP. Take a look at these free limited games in July.
If the recent lack of notable releases has left you thirsty for something to play, wandering in the sunburned waste of this AAA game drought, this list is here to help be updated with freebies to claim this month. We woke up beyond the safety of the sections with new releases, and we were able to take a wide selection of free titles for you.
If you are wondering how the free games business works, here is a brief overview.
Freebies at the Epic Games Store
Right on the front page of the Epic Games Store, scroll down to the featured free games and continue through the checkout as usual. There are updates to this list once a week, and sometimes more for events. Check in from time to time to get more free treats.
1; Free until July 22
From the creators of Myst, Obduction is a sci-fi adventure through an alien world. An eerie atmosphere envelops you as you solve puzzles and explore to find your way home.
Offworld Trading Company – Free until July 22nd
In this real-time strategy game, you develop a business to gather and sell resources in the harsh Martian landscape. It has daily challenges, multiplayer and a promotional mode that will offer a lot of replayability if this is the type of game you are interested in.
Defense Grid: The Awakening – From July 22nd to 29th
Defense Grid is a tower defense game where players have the task of defending a base from cool-looking aliens with laser guns. Sometimes the simplest premises can be so cute!
Verdun – From 22 to 29 July
Verdun is the story buffet’s idea of a game about the Great War, with a view to a realistic experience of the new norm for fast-paced action. It seems to have gotten a bit of a cult feel from online enthusiasts.
Free games on GOG
GOG’s website has a nice static selection of freebies here. Apart from that, they offer promotions from time to time like the one below.
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition – Free with a GOG Galaxy Download
If you are reading this list, it is unlikely that you have not heard of The Witcher 3, a critically acclaimed RPG from the open world from 2015. Well, this offer is for an affected version of the original The Witcher, game that started the entire series.
Download the GOG Galaxy desktop client and sign in, or create an account if you do not have one. The first thing you look for is the main page, where you can take The Witcher.
For these games you will not see in the Steam store. Do not worry, we will show you the right stones you can turn. There are also many games on Steam that are always free, but we are here to chase the dragon with limited offers.
Endless Space Collection
Endless Space is a sci-fi strategy game where you control spaceships as they battle for secrets and resources left over from an ancient civilization called The Endless. This game is available through a promotion that involves linking your Steam account to another platform.
Go to the Games2Gether page and go through the quick registration process. When the connection is complete, you will be prompted to connect to your Steam account. Then check your rewards (the current icon, at the top right of the G2G page) and there will be a code for Endless Space and its DLC.
Nights Into Dreams – Free until all limited codes are applied
In this 1996 remake of Sega Saturn from 1996 to 1996, you will fly through a colorful and amazing world that explores, collects and fights.
You will not claim this offer through the Steam Store. Instead, go to Sega’s 60th birthday website and register your email. You should then be prompted to select a platform, where you select the Steam icon and log in to connect to your Steam account. Then check your email immediately for the code to be redeemed and add the game to your account.
Amazon Prime Gaming
You may not be aware of it, but the Prime Gaming subscription is included in an annual subscription to Amazon Prime. On the Prime Gaming website, there is a rotating selection of titles to claim. For most games, it’s as simple as pressing the “claim” button. Then you can start it in your spare time from the Amazon game app. So even though these are not technically free, many have already paid for these games and do not even know it yet.
All these offers expire on 2 August.
Batman – The Enemy Within
More Batman from the people behind Batman: The Telltale Series. You will not kick the bad guys while “Whop!” and “Pow!” fly off the screen – instead you will do the caped crusader’s detective work, and try to stop Riddler from putting more of Gotham’s inhabitants in Saw-esque conditions.
The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
In a remake of a 90’s classic of the same name, The Secret of Monkey Island is a point-and-click adventure, laid out thick with silly and charming characters. It is highly regarded and definitely worth downloading.
