5 Best free multiplayer games for PC

Valorant

valorant

Valorant is a free-to-play multiplayer tactical first-person hero shooter developed and published by Riot Games, for Microsoft Windows. First teased under the codename Project A in October 2019, the game began a closed beta period with limited access on April 7, 2020, followed by an official release on June 2, 2020.

VALORANT is a 5v5 character-based tactical shooter video game.

Valorant is one of those Counter Strike type of games but playing a group of preset characters with their unique abilities. I would say Valorant is pretty solid in terms of gunplay and balanced abilities, the abilities are the only new aspect of the game which are mostly about defending, distractions and front assault

It is one of those FTP games that doesn’t requires high end specs to play the game which makes the game very approachable, the graphics are clean and a basic form with cartoonish look but that’s what i like it, it is simple as i see nothing messy or detailed to see

The weapons are somewhat similar in categories and how many are there yet they look generic, for example Valorant has a sniper rifle that one shot players and a second sniper rifle that two shots players just like CS:GO has. The environments in several maps were mostly ok but some of the maps have those very unpredictable spots where the player could kill without the enemy seeing it which is cheap

The monetization is downright scummy and felt like a scam (almost or not), there’s no currency system where you can get them in-game by playing and use them to buy the cosmetics. Without it, players could have gone insanely addicted to buying them and other games were not that scummy even LOL has that currency system obtained in playing the game. But of course, you can just obtain the skin by just asking a friend and randoms to drop it or grabbing it from enemies’ cold dead hands, it’s temporary (one match) but it is better

I would say Valorant is a solid tactical FPS with distinct abilities at a balanced state, if you want to play a new ‘Plant and Defuse’ game mode with a twist, take Valorant with you, the abilities aren’t actually challenging to use like Overwatch, it is easy but hard to master. Speaking of balance, we all know new characters won’t always be balanced sometimes.

Apex Legends

Apex Legends

Apex Legends is a free-to-play first-person hero shooter battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with the Nintendo Switch version being developed by Panic Button.

Apex Legends is a game like no other. It has futuristic characters, all with special powers and skills. Players use unique powers to kill enemies. Just like in PUBG, you can play multiplayer games and create a squad with friends.

The game has a strategic approach towards it. Besides pure battle royale experience, Apex Legends is a platform for clever, strategic gameplay. It has amazing graphics.

The game has incredible movement capability, you’re able to climb on top of anything and this gives the game a lot of variety for each fight. The game is a 5/5 for me, Respawn Entertainment is doing an excellent job with this game.

Fortnite

Fortnite

Fortnite is an online video game developed by Epic Games and released in 2017.

Fortnite is one of the most widely played PC games of all time. The famous battle royale game is also available on smartphones and tabs. Just like PUBG, there are a total of 100 players in a game of Fortnite.

You have to kill the enemies using strong tactics to emerge as the eventual winner. The game is well-known for its funny bits including catchy celebration dance moves and cartoon characters. It has stunning graphics and smooth gameplay.

Call of Duty: Warzone

Call of Duty: Warzone

Call of Duty: Warzone is a free-to-play battle royale video game released on March 10, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.

Warzone’s large lobbies are one of many ways the game tries to differentiate itself from the increasingly crowded battle royale market. But after this update, if you’re playing in a full Quad mode lobby of 200 people, you’ll be competing against 49 other teams of four, which could make Warzone’s already hectic games even more of a wild ride.

Warzone is as close to reality as possible compared to other battle royale games, because of this many people complains that there are cheats which ” instant ” kills them. I think those are players coming from games where you can take 3-6 shots and still manage to survive.

Since warzone is trying to be close to reality it isn’t so forgiving with gameplay and mistakes. For example if sniper fails to notice you also hold a sniper rifle and can see the light reflection on the optic even though they are mile away that’s their fault not the cheat lol… that’s how it works in reality. Or another example don’t stand close to a dude with shotgun in his hands lol and then don’t say he one shot you because he is cheating.

Guns are not paying to win, the boxes drop from the sky and you can get good guns from there, houses and buildings are full of guns as well. Even though you may have a “common” level gun and another dude may hold “legendary” you will still be able to beat him if you know how to play.

Overwatch

Overwatch

Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment.

Overwatch is my absolute favourite game ever! The characters are phenomenally designed, the maps are beautifully built and the abilities are a joy to use every single time. The absolute teamwork that goes into every match makes the victories and defeats that much more meaningful and heartfelt. The animated shorts could win the academy awards if there was a category for it. And the community of about 50 million people at this point is just all the love one could need in his/her life. Overwatch isn’t just a game, it’s a phenomenon that brought millions of people together and filled their lives with joy, hope, love and wonder. I am lucky to be a part of this phenomenon, and I ain’t ever abandoning it.
