This thread will no longer be updated.

This used to be a thread called "Limited time, 100% Free-to-keep PC games right now", where I, together with many helpful members of the community, documented which PC games were free to claim at any given moment. I started it when the COVID-19 pandemic started in the whole world and developers/publishers were doing promotions faster than one could keep track of everything. Since the situation is calmer now, keeping track of things to that level isn't needed.

The thread is now a free games news thread which relies on comments to function - if you find an interesting offer for a free game, feel free to comment and let others know! Here I have also put links to useful places where you can find out about and/or collect free games as they appear.

For those who have gotten Tennis World Tour from the Nacon bundle: there are a few DLC you can claim for free until December. Old news maybe, but relevant now that the game has gotten bundled.

Yeah thx, but what stops me is that tennis and racing game are the only games I don't own from that bundle, and they get negative and mixed ratings, respectively.

Neither tennis nor racing (except Mario Kart) games are my thing, but this is good to know for those who activated this game at least.

In addition to DDO, The Lord of the Rings Online is also having free quest packs available right now, redeemable with a code (LOTROFREEQUESTS) to keep after the promotion is over. The game itself is F2P. Expires Aug 31st.

Edit (thank you Tcharr for the helpful input): To redeem the code:

  1. Make a (free) account at Lotro.com
  2. Download the game
  3. Log in & enter a realm
  4. At the Character Selection Screen, click on the button that says Lotro Store (you may have to make a new character first), or type Ctrl-S (more info here: https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/LOTRO_Store)
  5. Click on Redeem Code
  6. Enter code LOTROFREEQUESTS
  7. Enjoy the game! :)

You download the game (it is not small), you login, you open the Store (Ctrl+S), and there is a menu item near top for Redeem Code. :)

I'n not responsible for his moves. I was only pointing to that thread in this index thread, why:

  1. It is game free-2-keep
  2. Key was obtainable without any retweeting, observing etc, just visit 3 pages and enter secret-but-no-secret code
  3. I pointed to his thread before it got closed by mod
  4. It's already over.
