10 Free PC Games That Will Captivate You For a Long Time
You will find a dynamic battle royale, one of the best Clones of Diablo, a great real-time strategy and other projects.
1. Apex Legends
The free battle royale from the developers of Titanfall appeared quite suddenly and forced to make room for the leader in this field – Fortnite. The action in Apex Legends takes place on a much smaller map, the fights here are usually lightning fast and most often end with a complete defeat of one of the parties. Of course, it is possible to live until the end of the match, but for this you will have to not climb on the horn and try to get good equipment.
2. Dwarf Fortress
Dwarf Fortress can be anything: a role-playing game, a management simulator, or just a fairy tale with an open world for exploration. You have a colony of dwarves that have to work and still stay full and happy. And in what ways you will achieve their well-being depends only on you.
3. Path of Exile
Perfect for fans of Diablo and other similar RPGs. Path of Exile appeared in 2013, but there are still updates for it with new bosses and various gameplay elements. What’s more, it’s still one of the most popular free games.
At first glance, the project is no different from many others of the same plan. You start your journey as a wimp in socks and eventually become a real killing machine. But if you look deeper, you can see a unique pumping system with a huge number of different skills, a wide variety of booty and a lot of other advantages.
An unusual cross between a collectible card game and chess. You don’t have to be a brilliant strategist — anyone can enjoy Duelyst. Only later, if it becomes interesting, you can try to understand the game styles and other features of the project.
At your disposal is a deck of cards, which belongs to one of the six factions. You also have a general with a unique skill, on the basis of which you build a strategy. Different cards allow you to use additional abilities.
After assembling a deck, you can engage in combat with the enemy. During the battle, you need to expose new creatures to the playing field or strengthen existing ones. And so on until the general of one of the players dies.
5. StarCraft II
One of the greatest real-time strategy games in 2017 has a free version – the chic single-player campaign Wings of Liberty. Here you can fight in network matches without rating and against AI, as well as get access to ranked games, winning at least 10 victories per day.
In StarCraft II, you play as one of three races. Your goal is to quickly build an effective base, create a sufficient number of combat units and send them to fight the enemy. If you catch the enemy by surprise, while he is still developing, you can win a quick victory.
6. Heroes of the Storm
This game can be described as a MOBA: two teams of five people fight each other on a map divided into three strategic lines. There are also a bunch of different characters with their own roles.
But the threshold for entry into Heroes of the Storm is much lower than that of giants of the genre like Dota 2 and League of Legends. This is evident in everything: for example, in much more welcoming players and the ease of learning character classes. In addition, the game has not one map, but several at once – each with its own theme and unique tasks.
7. Planetside 2
A massive online shooter in which it is necessary to protect individual territories on huge maps. Up to two thousand people can take part in one match, so the battles in the game without shame can be called epic.
Unlike lightning-fast multiplayer fighters like Battlefield and Call of Duty, in Planetside 2 you will need much more time to hone your combat skills. And this is one of the main merits of the project: when you begin to understand how best to act in certain situations, the game turns into one of great pleasure for you.
8. Forza Motorsport 6: Apex
The first part of Forza, which appeared on the PC – more precisely, on Windows 10. The racing series is known for its superbly designed cars and incredibly beautiful locations, and Apex is no exception.
A total of 63 machines and 12 events are available in the game. The races are very different from each other. Some are dedicated to ordinary hatchbacks, others to powerful muscle cars, and still others to rapid hypercars.
Forza Motorsport 6: Apex was released in 2016, but still looks very attractive.
For a free game, this fantastic online shooter has too much content. Warframe has a huge number of guns and items of equipment, a bunch of different game styles, a good story campaign and a huge world open to exploration.
There are constant updates for the project. Sometimes there are so many of them that you do not have time to deal with innovations. Fortunately, the game has a very friendly community, so at any time you can ask someone for help – and you are unlikely to be refused.
One of the oldest and most famous MMORPGs in the history of video games, which still has not lost relevance. Therefore, it is not surprising that last year, 19 years after the release of the original, an add-on was released for her with new zones, raids, tasks and skills.
In EverQuest there are more than 500 locations and countless quests, and the character can be leveled up to 110 levels. The graphics in the game, of course, are already outdated, but if you decide to get together with friends and go explore the huge world of Norrat, you are unlikely to regret it.
