Free quality games for this weekend

We recommend a good number of free games to download and try these days, with Ratchet & Clank standing out on both PlayStation consoles.

Once again like every weekend we return with a handful of games to play for free during these days around the Christmas holidays, among which a free trial of Dirt 5 stands out, the latest installment of the famous Codemasters franchise, but that neither much less is the only proposal. On this occasion, the Play at Home initiative of PlayStation joins the Free Play Days and the weekly rotation of Epic Games, which started at the time due to the massive confinement that we suffered due to the coronavirus pandemic, and that this time we lets you download nothing less than Ratchet & Clank for free.

Ratchet & Clank on PS4 and PS5

Insomniac Games rarely fails – have they ever, in fact? – and with the Ratchet & Clank remake they demonstrated that a formula from nearly 20 years ago is still fully in force today. This week that marks the 20th anniversary of PlayStation 2, what better way to remember the console than by enjoying one of its iconic games again, updated, but with all its virtues intact. We can download it from the PS Store completely free and keep it forever on PS4 and PS5.

DIRT 5, on PC

The most arcade side of the Codemasters saga is available, in its latest installment, to try for free on Steam until tomorrow Sunday. Even without innovating in the genre, the British studio is able to give this fifth installment an artistic personality and an extensive Career mode, as well as an impeccable control, a trademark of the house. Apart from this free trial, we can find the entire franchise, also the DIRT Rally, with a 75% discount on the Valve platform.

Wargame: Red Dragon, on PC

Wargame: Red Dragon pays off its debt to fans of strategy, as it was scheduled to be the free game of Epic Games’ weekly rotation in no less than November 2020. We can finally download this war strategy title that faces, in the 90s, to countries like Japan, Australia, China or North Korea. The management of troops of all kinds is the playable basis of this free proposal thanks to the Fortnite creators store.

Going Under, on Xbox and PC

This peculiar indie title released in 2020 aims to parody the world of work with loud-mouthed entrepreneurs and small companies that want to give a “cool” image to be authentic exploiters, under a most personal visual section. Playable we are going to find a kind of dungeon crawler with a surprisingly solid combat system, to which we must add the presence of final bosses and progression. We can be pleasantly surprised with him thanks to the Xbox Free Play Days.

Descenders, on Xbox and PC

The other game that we can enjoy thanks to the Free Play Days is Descenders, a bicycle descent title that has been one of the great beneficiaries of Xbox Game Pass in recent times, since no less than 20% of subscribers have downloaded it. As we can imagine, it is a frantic arcade with a simple proposal to start, but that will require a good few hours of practice to be able to master.
