Free Games Now Available For Active Duty Military And Veterans Through Steam, Other Platforms
Thanks to Games to Grunts, a variety of games are free for active military personnel and veterans. Games to Grunts is partnering with the Office of the Secretary of Defense to provide games at zero cost. Gaining access is simple. Go to the Games to Grunts website, create an account with a valid military ID, and get access to a host of free games from Steam and other retailers. Games can be accessed via digital download code. Here’s what Games to Grunts is all about:
We’ve become experts at putting games in the hands of troops and have learned a lot while distributing over 1,000,000 games since 2010. Because OSD is first and foremost about community support, we noticed that the mechanism for getting games to troops hindered our ability to loop those we serve back into the community to provide them and their families further support. Digital Key distribution, preceding the Games to Grunts program, required sending a spreadsheet with gaming keys to a single point of contact on a post or in a unit, keeping us from cultivating a relationship at the individual level. Games to Grunts now solves this challenge by connecting OSD to the recipient ensuring they benefit from our services in a more personal and direct way while enjoyed great games from partners supporting our military.”
Keep in mind that some of these free games are already ‘selling out,’ AKA the partners have only given G2G a number of obtainable codes per game. Act fast if you want to grab these limited free access codes. If what you were looking for is sold out, keep tabs on their website to see if they restock. The types of games run the gambit from fighters to puzzles, featuring titles like Tekken 7, Crash Time 2, Clusterpunk 99, and more.
