The Best Free to Play PC Games

Best Free to Play PC Games

Welcome out our run-down of the best free to play PC games. Not everyone has cash to spare but there’s plenty of fantastic free to play PC games that deserve your attention. The words “free to play” are often frowned upon by PC gamers but the free to play market is now bigger than ever and there’s some games you won’t believe are actually free.

We’ve picked the cream of the crop and these are the games we often go back and play from time to time. They’re all well worth your attention and they can all be played without spending a penny.

This list is in no particular order of greatness because they’re all quite different and ranking these would be ludicrous. We’ll update this list as more quality F2P games appear throughout the year.

Path of Exile

Play Now

Path of Exile patch tomorrow – First expansion due March 2014

Path of Exile has been around for a while and Grinding Gear Games have taken the Diablo ARPG formula and created something rather special. GGG are a developer that understands their audience and opted to fund the game through cosmetic item purchases. There’s no pay to win here and every ARPG fan should try POE at least once. GGG also release regular free expansions and content updates.

War Thunder

Play Now

War Thunder

Gaijin’s War Thunder  is by far the best war simulator around. Starting with aircraft the game achieved a solid following and then tanks were added to the game making if a great all-rounder for fans of aerial and ground combat.

Dirty Bomb

Play Now

Splash Damage has a solid history of creating popular FPS games (we’ll forget about Brink) and Dirty Bomb takes some of the best elements of their previous games like Enemy Territory, features unique characters and is based around team play objectives.

DOTA 2

Play Now

DOTS 2 is the daddy of the MOBA, it built on the popular original Warcraft III DOTA mod and took the MOBA to the next level. If you were ever thinking about taking up eSports then DOTA 2 is one game you should try. Even Tim here at PC Invasion loves this so it has to be good.

Heroes of the Storm

Play Now

Heroes of the Storm - 05

Blizzard didn’t want to sit back and miss out on the MOBA scene and so they created Heroes of the Storm which features characters from the Blizzard game universe. This is a lot easier to get into compared to DOTA 2 and LoL.

Hearthstone

Play Now

After ditching their trading card decks, Blizzard took the concept of cards online and created hearthstone. Think of it like playing poker but with magical cards. It’s incredibly addictive and fun and a good game to jump into from time to time.

Team Fortress 2

Play Now

Valve’s Team Fortress 2 is another class based shooter and has a massive following so it’s always easy to jump into for a blast. It’s also got hats, lots of them.

    I’d suggest:

    Planetside 2: it’s open world combat on an epic scale. I’ve played it for an absurd number of hours and will probably go back for more once i upgrade my CPU. You could play this for free indefinitely as only cosmetic items are restricted to real world money purchases.

    Guild Wars 2 is well worth a look. You can easily play for 100+ hours without spending a penny. The first time I played it I wasn’t keen. The controls just felt wrong. I tried it again a week later, discovered the right mouse button, and have played it every day since. That was over two months ago. I would recommend that once you start telling yourself how much you like the game that you then buy the expansion.
