Both Xbox and PlayStation have listed their "free" games being offered up to Xbox Live Gold Subscribers/Game Pass Ultimate and PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of July 2021. As always, these are only "free" if you are an active subscriber to these services during the point in which they are offered. And in the case of PlayStation, you have to keep your subscription live to access the games afterwards as well.

Anyway, let's take a look at the games that you will get to experience for July 2021.

On the Xbox side, you will get Planet Alpha, Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break, Conker: Live & Reloaded, and Midway Arcade Origins. Once again, we aren't exactly talking about big blockbusters here for Xbox owners.
