    I see a lot of "This isn't actually free. Give a list of actual free games." When referencing Twitch and Humble Bundle. Why leave out Xbox and PS4? Do you think those are free? You need to be online to access the free games, and you need a pass of sorts in order to access online. Clearly this list is aimed towards those of us who have said passes to each of these providers.

    Love this page... thanks for maintaining it!

  • Mpire934  

    these aren't all of the PS4 ones

  • Nigh  

    Ring of Elysium should be added (it's free on Steam).

  • Adarkchylde  

    Ok Humble bundle monthly games are CHEAP - but they're not free , nor are twitch prime games , the humble games is a bundle you pay for and the twitch prime games is a complimentary perk for prime subscribers - but again you have to pay a subscription to get them. Why not add some truly free games to the list? I recommend Arboreal - which you can find on Steam.

  • bucksfan024  

    It's not free on PS4

  • JasonDietz  

    Rainbow Six actually is free this weekend. We had the wrong Microsoft Store link before, but it has been corrected.

  • bucksfan024  

    Title of the page is "This Month's Free Games" but the Rainbow Six Siege game isn't free... You should probably mention that.

    Super helpful - keep it up!
