Welcome back once again to our monthly column dedicated to video games available for free. Every month, thanks to some subscription services and company initiatives, so many titles are given away.

Don't rest on your laurels

Many of the games we will talk about in this article will be free throughout July, but others will only during a certain period. For this reason, we recommend that you redeem the titles that interest you as soon as possible, so as to avoid unpleasant situations.
