Yes, it's not 100% gaming related, but we felt it was worth pointing out. If you're an Xbox One owner who likes their sports, this might pique your interest. Now TV are currently giving away 7 days access to the Sky Sports Pass, which grants access to all seven of the Sky Sports channels free of charge. From the looks of it, existing Now TV customers can get in on the action as well, but if you already own the Sports Pass you won't be able to just add a free week onto your existing package.
As always with this sort of thing, you'll need to put in your payment details for this to work, but the interesting tidbit in all of this is that it won't activate automatically - in fact you have 365 days to activate your week's worth of free sports viewing. The offer expires on on October 11th, so get a move on if you want to watch all the football*, all the time (for seven days.) Thanks to Saxon @ HUKD!
*Other sports are available.
We love freebies and O2 Priority is often a good way to get your hands on free stuff. From next Monday (July 13th), you'll be able to grab some Skylanders at GAME.
Specifically, you'll be able to choose between a Spyro's Adventure Triple Pack or Skylanders Giants Battle Pack.
Make sure you've got the app installed and pop into your local store. Thanks to BigPlonker at HUKD, who definitely doesn't live up to their name!
Want a free month of EA Access, granting a whole range of games to freely download and enjoy for 30 days?

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is still my personal Game Of The Year so far, especially since it keeps getting better with free DLC delivered every month. June brings us an amazing haul of new missions, gear, armour, equipment, weapons, Palico gear, companion, guild cards and items, many of which are deliciously based on fan-favourite franchises.
We've got the trailer and details below.Click here to read more...

We would never recommend paying for Battlefield's randomised Battlepacks, seeing as they're effectively a slot machine, but getting them for free is another matter. You can currently grab a totally gratis Gold Battlepack on PSN for the PS3 and PS4 versions of Battlefield Hardline.
A Gold Battlepack contains 5 items, including a minimum of 2 Advanced items and 2 Standard items, with a bonus 5th item, that contains the likelihood of a Distinguished item, not present in a Silver Battlepack.
Make sure to check out Brendan's Battlefield Hardline review!
By way of apology for connection problems last week, Blizzard are giving all European Hearthstone players some free cards. You'll get two classic Hearthstone packs in the "open cards" section of the game within 24 hours.
"We know access to Hearthstone in Europe was spotty last week," Blizzard acknowledged on Battle.net. "Sorry about that, and we really appreciate your patience as we worked to get the tavern back into shape."
Note that accounts must have been created prior to May 3, 2015.
Star Citizen still feels like a universe away, but the interminable wait might become a bit more bearable thanks to this fun little freebie. Roberts Space Industries has released a new free-to-play arcade shooter containing official ships-of-the-line, which you can enjoy in-browser.
There's even a fully fleshed-out instruction manual to peruse. Normally I'd take a little jab at Star Citizen still being months if not a year or more from release, and the allocation of resources towards fripperies like this, but Hyper Vanguard Force is actually pretty fun. Plus we'll take what we can get, frankly.
