Where can you get free Steam keys? Everybody loves getting things for free, and we at PCGamesN are the last people to fly in the face of that tradition. Let’s get one thing straight. By free Steam keys, we don’t mean free games on Steam, as that’s a whole different list. No, we mean keys for Steam games you’d otherwise have to pay for. This can mean DLC for existing games you may own already (including free ones) or older games given away to promote a newsletter or a service.
If you’re looking for free PC games, there are some great titles you should check out there. However, if you want to get some incredible indie games or, if you’re particularly lucky, some of the best PC games, then check out the list below. Many of these links and promotions are external, which we take no responsibility for. However, at the top of this list, we’ll always have any currently running giveaway or competition right here on PCGamesN.
All active free Steam key giveaways
Here are all the currently active giveaways for free Steam keys:
Evercore Heroes closed beta
Evercore Heroes is a MOBA game that shakes the foundations a bit by having teams compete to complete objectives as fast as possible. This competitive PvE format means that the only thing getting in the way of a speedy victory is the abilities of you and your teammates and the skill to execute a game plan.
And you don’t have to wait until the Evercore Heroes release date to play the game. We are hosting our own giveaway for the closed beta test so that you can try out the many Evercore Heroes characters, of which there are options for DPS, Tank, or Support roles. If this all sounds like your cup of tea, read on to find out how to get into the closed beta.
How to get Evercore Heroes free key: While this is not technically a Steam key, you can get one for free by following our Evercore Heroes beta giveaway instructions. The giveaway will last until all 5,000 keys are gone, so be sure to check the Evercore Heroes beta system requirements over at PCGameBenchmark before snagging one of them for yourself.
Sega Bass Fishing
Those with vivid memories of catching fish on the Dreamcast will likely remember this gem. Sega Bass Fishing has budding anglers venture out into one of eight locations and cast out their fishing line to hook up the biggest, fattest fish in the lake. It’s arcadey goodness and is a bit of a cult classic. Now if only there were official support for a proper fishing rod controller.

How to redeem free Steam keys
Have you got a free Steam key? If so, congratulations! So long as nobody has redeemed already, you are just a few steps away from getting a game or DLC for absolutely nothing. Follow these instructions to redeem your Steam key.
- Open your Steam client.
- Click ‘Activate a product on Steam’.
- Copy and paste your Steam code into the text box below and click confirm.
- If successful, click the redeem button to add the game or DLC to your library.
- You can then install the game manually or update the existing game with the DLC.
Do note that Steam codes come in one of three formats:
- ###AAAAAAAAAAAA ##
If your code is unsuccessful, make sure that you don’t leave any rogue spaces at the end of the text box, as these will count toward the characters entered. If you get an error message that says duplicate code, someone already beat you to the free game. If the code is invalid, check that it’s, in fact, a Steam code and not a code for another service such as Epic Games Store, Microsoft Store, or even a PlayStation code.
Those are all the free Steam keys available right now but do check back soon, as new giveaways pop up all the time. You can also check our list of the best free Steam games to see if any of that selection takes your fancy.
