With more and more states seeing a spike in coronavirus infections, a second wave of enforced quarantine and extensive social distancing seems more likely than ever before. Heck, for some places in the country, it’s already a reality. Should you find yourself missing the opportunity to go outside and meet up in public places a little more than usual though, don’t fret. In this day and age, you’re never completely cut off from the world thanks to modern technology.
While streaming services continue to pump out content left and right, the gaming industry is similarly producing some attractive offers. This weekend, for instance, various games on all the major platforms can be enjoyed free of charge, and here’s a quick overview.
On the PlayStation 4, PS Plus subscribers will be able to play the thrilling action-adventure game Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, the immersive online multiplayer basketball title NBA 2K20, and the intriguing narrative-based Erica.
On the Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can access a larger assortment of titles. Some of the games available for download include The Sims 4, in which players can create their own worlds, and the fantasy outing Citadel: Forged with Fire.
Should you not be in the mood for either of those games, though, Xbox is offering two other options, too. These include the action-adventure sandbox game Saints Row 2 and the racing title WRC FIA World Rally Championship.
Last but not least, PC players will also be able to enjoy some great stuff for free, like Sludge Life, The Escapists 2, Killing Floor 2, Lifeless Planet: Premier Edition and Tropico 6.
