Free-to-play games are more popular today than ever before, and with Epic’s decision to release Fortnite Battle Royale as a free-to-play experience, it’s clear these type of video games are hear to say, and will only get better as time goes on.
You know, when we think of free-to-play games, the first thing that comes to mind is mobile, but we’re no longer living in 2010. Game developers have found ways to make millions from these game, and because of this, we’re seeing a lot of triple-A style games that have adopted this no money upfront model.
Despite the many developers who have ventured down this road, it doesn’t mean every game that falls under the free-to-play mantra are worth playing. To make your decision of choosing easier, we’re going to talk about some of the best free-to-play games that are available today.
World of Tanks
A game with tanks from the World War I and World War II era; there’s just no way it could fail on in terms of fun. Players only need to download this game from Steam, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4 for free, and begin battling other players.
Bear in mind that World of Tanks is a multiplayer only game, and with a little bit of practice, you’ll be mastering the art of angling your tank, bouncing shots, and ripping enemies to shreds.
If you want to feel like an unstoppable force of power, we recommend upgrading to the KV-2 with the massive 152 mm DERP gun. Just think of Goku doing the Kamehameha wave for a not so accurate description of how beastly this tank is.
Developers, take note, for Warframe is possibly one of the best examples of how to do a free-to-play game properly. It’s a massive third-person shooter that is designed with multiplayer in mind.
The game started off slowly, but as time went by, it has become one of the must play games in recent history.
If you have the patience and vigor to play Warframe, then we’d wager you’d be able to play any game, seriously.
OK, so let’s be honest here. Killer Instinct is the most consistent fighting game in a long while. Since the game came on the scene back in 2013, we’ve seen the rise of several new characters to the point where it’s now a complete experience.
No other fighting game gets the blood boiling when pulling off some of the sickest combos you’ve ever seen. If you’re up to the task, you can keep a combo going for minutes, completely humiliating your opponent to tears of hatred and that need for revenge.
That is Killer Instinct in a nutshell.
