There are a plethora of free games available right now, ranging from Epic’s weekly freebies to Steam publisher promotions, GOG sale giveaways, and more. It’s difficult to keep track of them all, and you might be missing out.
This is not an acceptable state of affairs, so we’ve compiled a list of every free game that comes across our screens. Free-to-keep and temporary promotions will be included and noted as such, but free-to-play games and others that are normally free will not be—for that, check out our categorized breakdown of the best free PC games.
Now let’s get started:

Prime Gaming’s games aren’t technically free because you have to be a subscriber to access them. However, there’s a lot on offer if you are, including in-game loot and free-to-play game starter packs, so it’s worth keeping an eye on. Prime Gaming is included with Amazon Prime at $13 per month, or $120 per year; links to all included freebies are available at amazon.com.
