Mid-February is practically the peak of cabin fever season, especially for those in colder climates, so that makes the timing of this weekend’s free games bonanza even better. Wanna test out some games without spending on them? Here’s what you can get into without as much as a penny this weekend:
Metal Gear Survive beta – A PS Plus subscription is necessary to try the beta for the latest – and first without Hideo Kojima – entry in the Metal Gear series.
Overwatch – Heard about this juggernaut but haven’t tried it? Here’s your chance. There’s no access to Competitive Play, and you need a PS Plus subscription, but it’s free to try through February 19.
Rainbow Six Siege – This tense first-person shooter still boasts a busy server.
NBA 2K18 – It’s a big NBA weekend, what with the All-Star game, so if you own an Xbox One (no Gold subscription necessary!), it’s free to see if you can take down the Warriors or Cavs.
Overwatch – As with the PS4, it’s free to try through Monday, but you will need a Gold subscription.
Rainbow Six Siege – Free to try this weekend with no Gold membership necessary.
PC gamers can also sample Metal Gear Survive, Overwatch, and Rainbow Six Siege. Plus Dungeons 2 is free to keep via GOG and Civilization IV: Complete Edition is free to keep for Amazon Prime members via Twitch.
Keep your wallet closed and game on!
