Good games aren’t always expensive. Sometimes you can play something very cool without spending absolutely nothing and make good use of your PC gamer. As there are many options available, we made a list to help you choose the best free game for you – or play all of them, who knows?
- Apex Legends
The world of video games is curious and sometimes surprises. Apex Legends is a sum of Overwatch, Team Fortress 2, and Fortnite, with beautiful graphics and based on a world already established in the Titanfall series. The game was released by surprise and became a public and critical phenomenon.
Players compete in a battle royale, but unlike Fortnite, they participate in teams of up to three people, and the characters are called Legends, with defined personalities, powers, and appearances. If there is competition for Fornite in the world of free games, Apex Legends is closest to that. In addition to the PC, you can play Apex Legends on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
- Fortnite Battle Royale
Those who hear of Fortnite may not know that initially, the game is not just a battle royale; it is that the mode has become the great success of the brand. Although PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, known as PUBG, popularized the genre, it was Fortnite that led to all audiences for being free.
The gameplay is simple: the player falls into a territory without equipment, at the same time as several other players. It needs to assemble a kit and even build structures to protect itself from others, while the map progressively reduces in size. The structure resembles that of voracious games, from player to player until over a single winner.
- League of Legends
Speaking of MOBA, League of Legends is one of the most successful games of its kind, making it one of the most active e-sports markets: Championship finals are shown even by sports channels!
Unlike other games, the progression of characters ‘ abilities occurs within each match, which leaves all players initially in the same situation, except it is evident by their ability. As is common in MOBAs, characters are divided into classes and have well-defined roles in each match. It was released only for PC.
Unlike most games on this list, “Warframe” is a cooperative game. This means that the gameplay revolves around players helping each other instead of competing with each other. It is a third-person shooter game, but also has RPG elements, with character progression and quite diverse skill options, and snippets that require stealth.
The world of Warframe is futuristic and involves space travel and the armor that name the game, with various types. The items and equipment are the great reward of the missions, extending the powers of the characters, and are also the point where it is possible to spend real money, although everything is also available through gambling. Smite
Another example of a MOBA on the list, smite has some differentials: first that the gameplay is in the third person, while most of the others of the genre have a top-down perspective, reminiscent of strategy games; and in Smite the player controls mythical figures from various cultures that face each other.
- Killer Instinct
The name Killer must be familiar if you played video games in the 1990s. Killer Instinct was a fighting game at the time of the Super Nintendo and spent a few years missing, but returned in 2013 with that title. Although free, the game offers very little for those who decide not to pay anything for it: only one character is available, with the others available for purchase separately or in-season packages, released regularly.
- Team Fortress 2
Team Fortress 2 is one of the pioneers of free games, or free-to-play, which guarantees basic gameplay free of charge, with shopping possibilities to increase the experience – but it was not released this way. Four years after the release is that the game became free and consequently reached more public.
It is a first-person shooter multiplayer game, with teams facing each other in search of a common goal, in various types of game modes, from the classics of capturing an object and in enemy territory and bringing to their own until they control strategic points on the map. With over ten years of release and many updates since then, Team Fortress 2 is, in a word, complete. It was also released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
- Heroes of the Storm
The so-called MOBAs, or multiplayer online battle arena, are very similar games in which players divide into two small teams and face each other, usually to destroy and protect a structure on the map. Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard’s entry in the genre, with a free game, with apparent opportunities to spend money in the real world to broaden options.
- Planetside 2
As the name implies, Planetside 2 is the sequel to a game but was the first in the series to be free. It is a first-person shooter in a futuristic science fiction setting, with the gameplay focused on conquering territory by different factions. The differential is that the graphics engine of the game allows an impressive amount of players to face each other at the same time – the game even has a record recorded in the Guinness, of the greatest battle in a first-person game, with absurd 1,158 players at the same time.
