Free Games Roundup: February | VGC


There’s no more reasonable price than free, and whether you’re a PC or console gamer, there are regular opportunities to claim games for exactly that price.

However, sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of everything, which is why we’ve put together this helpful guide to all the free games currently available.

This article will be updated regularly as free games come and go, which means it should be up to date whenever you decide to check it out.

It’s worth pointing out, of course, that some of these “free” games are perks for signing up for subscription services that themselves aren’t free.

This guide is also only focused on games that usually cost money but have been made free for a limited time as part of a promotion or membership benefit.

There are many free games not listed here that can be found on your console or PC’s digital store: they have always been free in the first place and can usually be enjoyed for free, but with the option of spending money on upgrades.

That said, here’s our current list of free console and PC games you can claim right now.


PlayStation Plus – The free PS4 and PS5 games of the month

If you subscribe to PlayStation Plus, you get free games to claim every month.

These games can be “purchased” and added to your library, where you can download them anytime in the future.

However, if you cancel your PlayStation Plus subscription, you will no longer have access to it.

That said, if you ever restart your subscription, any PS Plus games you’ve claimed in the past will be available to you again.

The free PlayStation Plus games for February 2022 are:

  • Planet Coaster: Console Edition (PS5)
  • UFC 4 (PS4)
  • Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon’s Keep: A Unique Adventure in Wonderland (PS4)

Xbox Games With Gold – Free Xbox games of the month

If you have an Xbox Live Gold membership (or an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, which includes Gold), you can claim a selection of free games each month.

These games can be “purchased” and added to your library, where you can download them anytime in the future.

All Xbox 360 games included in Games With Gold can continue to be played even if you cancel your Gold subscription in the future.

However, all Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S games in Games With Gold can only be played if you are a subscriber. If you ever cancel your subscription, you won’t be able to play it (until you subscribe again)

Free Games Roundup: February

The Xbox Games With Gold titles currently available are:

  • Failed (Xbox One) – until February 15
  • Broken Sword 5: Curse of the Serpent (Xbox One) – until February 28
  • Hydrophobia (Xbox 360) – until February 15

Xbox One title Never Yield and Xbox 360 title Band of Bugs will be available later this month, starting February 16.


Epic Games Store – This week’s free PC game

With the exception of special occasions like the Christmas Recap, the Epic Games Store generally gives away one free game each week, with the game changing on Thursdays.

At the moment, players can claim Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lairby Playtonic Games.

Free Games Roundup: February

This can be claimed until 11am ET / 4pm GMT on February 10, when it will be replaced by Windbound.

To claim these games, players must create an Epic Games account. They can then “purchase” the games for free and add them to their Epic Games Store library.


Amazon Prime Gaming – Free PC games of the month

Included as part of an Amazon Prime membership, Prime Gaming gives subscribers free-to-keep PC titles and exclusive in-game content every month.

Depending on the game, these are either claimed and added to an Amazon games library which requires its own bespoke launcher, or claimed by logging into another online store such as the Epic Games Store, GOG.com, or EA Origin.

All free games from Amazon Prime Gaming belong to you after being claimed, even if the Prime membership is canceled later.

Free Games Roundup: February

The Amazon Prime Gaming free games for February 2022 are:

  • Ashwalkers: A Journey of Survival
  • As far as the eye
  • Double Kick Hero
  • Golazo! soccer league
  • Stellaris (GOG.com)
  • World War Z: Aftermath (Epic Games Store)

Xbox Free Play Days – This week’s free trials

Xbox’s regular “Free Play Days” campaign runs this weekend, allowing Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to play the following games:

  • Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker
  • Bad North: Jotunn Edition
  • Grek: Memories of Azure
Free Games Roundup: February

These games will be available to download and play for free from the Xbox Store starting Thursday, February 3 at 12:01 a.m. PT / 3:01 p.m. ET / 8:01 p.m. GMT until the same time on Monday, February 7.

However, these are not free to claim and keep: once the free play days period ends, the games will no longer be playable unless you actually buy them, so consider them free rentals on weekend.
