August 2020’s Free Games Preview

Even though most (some?) aren’t going on summer holidays, there’s a reasonable collection of free games to keep you busy this month:

Portal Knights (August 1 to 31 on Xbox One) – a multiplayer RPG with sandbox elements which has a Minecraft-y feel about it visually

Override: Mech City Brawl (August 16 to September 15 on Xbox One) – a 3D mech brawler which has an interesting twist for a co-op mode where each player controls an element of the suit. That won’t end in arguments!

MX Unleashed (August 1 to 15 on Xbox One and Xbox 360) – off-road motorbike racing game

Red Faction II (August 16 to 31 on Xbox One and Xbox 360) – open-world destruct ‘em-up. The key selling point was you can destroy everything. And you can. It’s pretty fun.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered (PS4) – not to be confused with the more recent Modern Warfare, this is the sequel to the original Modern Warfare. Which has been remastered. But just the campaign element. It’s quite good (although ‘that’ controversial bit still doesn’t sit well with me)

Fall Guys (PS4) – 60 player online ‘Total Wipeout’ style battle royale type fun. This looks an absolute blast
