The number of free games this week is manageable. But you can keep the majority of it completely. So if you are currently not enthusiastic about the good weather or football, you could spend your weekend with a few free games instead. Both Steam and Epic have some pretty interesting options from Friday to Sunday.
Here we introduce you to all of the PC games that will be free from June 25th to June 28th. Some of them are also free of charge. We start with our highlight of the week.
Highlight of the week: Tell Me Why
Tell Me Why – Launch trailer for the new Dontnod adventure
For whom is it interesting?
Like Life is Strange, Tell Me Why tells a very personal story about young people who, however, have exceptional skills. This type of coming-of-age story is still rather rare in video games. And Dontnod doesn’t shy away from addressing difficult topics like depression or exclusion.
Important to know: Tell Me Why is completely free for most of Pride Month. Because at the center of the story is the transgender man Tyler. So you only have the last days of June left.
If you want to find out more about Tell Me Why and how he deals with gender, then read through the detailed analysis by colleague Natalie:

Tell Me Why wants the right thing, but misses the target
How do you get it Tell Me Why consists of three episodes. In this case, however, it is sufficient to go to the main page of the game and click on “Add”. So all episodes land in your Steam library forever.
But be careful! The first episode of Tell Me Why was free in March. If you downloaded them back then, you must first remove the game from your library in order to download all of the episodes. You do this by switching to the support tab in the game overview.
The most exciting free games on Steam and Epic
Here you will find all the games that are otherwise free this weekend. We differentiate between games that you can keep forever and games that are only available for free for a few days.
You will get these games permanently for free
Sonic Mania: At least since the switch to the third dimension, Sonic games have had a very difficult time with the fans. Sonic Mania therefore returns to the time of the Sega Megadrive and offers classic platformer action with the fastest hedgehog in the world.
Horizon Chase Turbo: The racer relies on a very modest look and tries to revive the heyday of the arcade racers of the 80s and 90s. So if you feel even more nostalgia after Sonic Mania, you can go straight to Horizon Chase.
- Battlefield 4 Vehicle Shotrcut Bundle: There is a small present for Battlefield 4 players. You get the opportunity to unlock all upgrades for all vehicles. The shooter is currently being played a lot again. Our author Dennis checked whether this is still fun today:

- RPG Maker MZ: Actually not a real game, but very exciting. With the RPG Maker you can easily build your own role-playing games. The previous versions even produced some high-quality games, such as To the Moon. Until June 28th you can try the program for free or buy it right away at a reduced price.
More free games
There are even more free games for GameStar Plus subscribers. If you have a subscription here at GameStar.de in June, you can download the horror action hit Resident Evil 4 for free. At GOG there is also a permanent area, which contains numerous free games.
By the way, next week you will get the innovative puzzle adventure in the Epic Games Store The Spectrum Retreat given.
