It’s so hot this weekend that we recommend staying indoors, grabbing a cold one, and playing some video games. And luckily for you, there are currently a ton of free video games available to download and play on platforms such as PS5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. This includes an all-new Battle Royale brawler, not to mention an epic action-RPG and even an open-world GTA clone.
First up is the release of Rumbleverse, which is available for free download on PS5 PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
With melee combat, unlockables, and various upgrades, the battle royale game places 40 players in a colorful city.
“Rumbleverse is a brand new free-to-play 40-person Brawler Royale where anyone can be a champion. You play as your own unique citizen of Grapital City, as you fight your way to victory!” reads the official description.
“Customize your fighter by mixing and matching hundreds of unique items and stand out from the crowd.
“Launch from a cannon, hit the streets and prepare to fall! Where you land is up to you, but beware: there’s chaos around every corner and at the top of the tallest skyscraper!
“Jump from rooftop to rooftop and smash open crates in search of weapons and upgrades. Each turn is a new opportunity to discover new moves and perks that will give you the edge in your quest for glory.”
Although Rumbleverse is free to play, fans can purchase in-game currency, which can be used to purchase customization items, such as skins.
Even more free games are available on Xbox as Microsoft hosts another Free Play Days weekend.
As part of Free Play Days, Xbox Gold subscribers can download and play Saints Row Third: Remastered, Eiyuden Chronicle Rising, and Space Crew Legendary Edition.
Now is a great time to try out Saints Row: The Third Remastered, especially with the Saints Row reboot launching later this month.
The same goes for Eiyuden Chronicle Rising, which serves as a prequel to the upcoming release of Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes in 2023.
Finally, there’s more good news for PC owners, like Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3? ! becomes the last game to be offered for free on the Epic Games Store.
“In the radically changed war-torn America of 2042, play through an all-new story-driven campaign where you cook hundreds of foods – many new to the series – across hundreds of levels in a new gameplay structure that has been completely redesigned to deliver fast-paced action, or chill out with the all-new Chill Mode that can be turned on or off at any time!”
Cook, serve, delicious! 3? ! will be available for free until 4:00 p.m. BST UK time on August 18.
