With the Coronavirus spreading fast, many of us are in lockdown and are spending a lot of time wondering what to do. As a result, game developers have come to the rescue and made certain titles available, free to play for a short time.
If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, you might want to check out what games are available for free.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Headlining the list of games currently free to play is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Ubisoft’s new Assassin’s Creed title is available to play from March 19th to March 22nd so you’ll need to act fast if you want to dive into the world of Ancient Greece.
Set during the Peloponnesian War, you play as a Spartan warrior outcast in the beginning but as you embark on your odyssey you can become a living legend.
To get your hands on this title, you will need to visit Ubisoft’s website and enter your details. The great thing is, if you decide to purchase this game because you want more time to explore it, your progress will be saved where you left off.
What Other Games Are Free To Play?
Assassin's Creed Odyssey isn't the only free game out there you can get your hands on! below are our top picks of free games to keep you busy during your own self-isolation. Some of these are only free for a limited time, though. So you'll need to be quick!
Football Manager 2020
If you’re a sports fan, you might prefer to give Football Manager 2020 a go. This is a strategic football RPG which is currently free to play on Steam. This title will be free until March 25th so there’s plenty of time to get to grips with the world of football management. If you’re worried that we won’t see the end of the football season due to cancellations this year, why not give it a crack yourself! We’re warning you though if you like strategy games, this one’s pretty addictive.
There are plenty of other free to play games at the moment, including Half-Life which is free to play over the next few days in the run-up to the Half-Life: Alyx release. The upcoming VR game will be set before Half-Life 2, but features the same characters. So, if you're planning to get your hands on it, now is the perfect time to play through the earlier titles once again.
Magic The Gathering: Arena
MtG: Arena has been out for some time now, but it still holds up as a great free-to-play game. And, if you're already a fan of the card game, this allows you to enjoy playing with people without heading out into public - perfect!
Call of Duty Modern Warfare Warzone
The recently released multiplayer game from the Call of Duty franchise has been an instant hit for many. With the recent addition of solo play, you no longer need to rely on matchmaking, and can just jump straight into the action too.
If you’re looking for a game to download and own permanently rather than just over the next few days, many other games are also discounted on Steam at the moment. So, there’s a fair amount to get stuck into over the next few days if you’re looking for something fun to do at home.
