GTA 5 will soon be free-to-play – here’s how to grab it and seven more free games


XBOX has just announced its latest batch of free games including one of the best-selling games of all time.

While fans have been eagerly waiting for more news on GTA 6, they can now play through the last game in the series completely free.

You can visit Los Santos completely free.

GTA 5 is now available as part of Xbox Game Pass’ cheapest tier, Xbox Game Pass for Console.

It’s playable on both Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, and is also available for streaming from the Cloud with Game Pass Ultimate.

The other big-name game releasing in July is Capcom’s Exoprimal.

This is a multiplayer mech shooter where you and friends take down waves of dinosaurs falling from the sky.

This will launch on Xbox Game Pass the same day that it is released on July 14.

Another game worth pointing out is Double Fine’s The Cave, which was directed by Monkey Island’s Ron Gilbert.

More games will be announced for July towards the middle of the month, but we know of eight games so far.

Here’s the games coming to Xbox Game Pass in July 2023.

  • Available now
    • GTA 5 (Cloud and console)
    • Sword & Fairy: Together Forever (Cloud, console and PC)
  • July 6
    • McPixel 3 (Cloud, console and PC)
  • July 11
    • Common’hood (Cloud, console and PC)

  • July 14
    • Exoprimal (Cloud, console and PC)
  • July 18
    • Techtonica (Cloud, console and PC)
    • The Cave (Cloud and Console)

As with every month, games coming to Game Pass means that some games have to leave.

Luckily, this month isn’t too devastating, with the exception of the excellent Spelunky 2.

  • Leaving on July 15
    • Exo One (Cloud, console and PC)
    • PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls (Cloud, console and PC)
    • Spelunky 2 (Cloud, console and PC)
