E3 2018 – A list of freebie games, levels and DLC released during E3
Do you feel like your missing out by not attending this year’s E3 conference? Want to be more involved? If so, then checking out the free games released from E3 may relieve your FOMO (Fear of Missing Out).
I was so excited to learn that some games companies were offering the chance of immediate play or even free play of some of their new titles so I decided to make a list of them in this post.
Elder Scrolls: Blades
This game was unveiled during the Bethesda showcase and is a brand new Elder Scrolls game. The game will be released in Autumn (Fall) 2018 on mobile devices. Oh and the best part is it will be free to play. For more detail, check out the game at Bethesda.net
This game was also announced during the Bethesda showcase. However, this is not a new title but rather it is now available on the Nintendo Switch and PS4. The game is part of the Fallout series and the game on the Switch and PS4 will be more or less the same as the existing versions which were released in 2015. Good news, this game is also free to play and you can play it now! For more detail, check out the game at Falloutshelter.com
Skyrim very special edition – for Alexa
Though most people believed this to be a prank initially, it looks as though there is a way to play an audio version of Skyrim on your Alexa device. This is a pretty unusual one but it is worth including it in this list as it is technically free and you can even get this to work without the need for an Alexa device. Though unfortunately for the rest of the world, this is only playable in the US. 🙁 How To Article Here
The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit
This is a new game that was announced during the Microsoft showcase and will be free to download from June 26th. The game takes place in the world of Life is Strange which fans of the franchise will likely enjoy. This game will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. For more info. about this game read the Engadget article here.
Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy – Stormy Ascent & Future Tense
Good news for fans of the Crash Bandicoot series! First up, the Stormy Ascent additional level will be free to download from the Playstation store on June 15th. Stormy Ascent is a particularly difficult unfinished level from the original game that has been remastered for your enjoyment and frustration.
The second piece of good news for Crash Bandicoot fans is that a brand new level will be available from June 29th called Future Tense. This game will be playable from within the Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped game. The Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy is currently available on PS4 but is coming to Xbox One, Switch and Steam on June 29th so don’t miss out!

Black Ops 3
Those of you who have not yet had a chance to play this game you can download and play this game for FREE over the next couple of weeks providing you have a Playstation Plus membership. This is being done as part of a promotion for the newest game in the series Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which is set for release on October 12th. More detail about this game can be found by clicking this link.
This game is available free to play on Steam if you sign up before June 17th. If you are new to the Quake series or want to get back into the swing, this might be a great opportunity for you. Better get on it quick though! More info. on this game can be found by clicking this link.
This first person shooter which was released on August 8th 2017 on Steam is now free to play. How can I say no to free to play!? More info. on this game can be found by clicking this link.
Probably one of the worse kept secrets ahead of the Nintendo E3 showcase was the release of Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch. You can now download and play Fortnite for free on the Switch and take the game with you on the go. Though the game has always been free to play, it bodes well for the future of the Switch console.
So There You Have It
