Coronavirus has affected our daily lives drastically, people are stuck at home and nobody want to be bored.
That’s why today I bring you “5 Free To Play Games you should play during Quarantine“
What are Free to Play Games ??
Free-to-play video games, also known as free-to-start, are games that give players access to a significant portion of their content without paying. Free-to-play can be contrasted with pay to play, in which payment is required before using a service for the first time.
More about Free to Play
Counter Strike Global Offensive
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Valve and Hidden Path Entertainment. It is the fourth game in the Counter-Strike series.
While CSGO was not originally a free to play game, Valve decided to make the game free to play for increasing the playerbase.
Two opposing teams, known as the Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorists, compete in game modes to complete objectives, such as securing a location to plant or defuse a bomb and rescuing or guarding hostages.
At the end of each round, players are rewarded based on their individual performance with in-game currency to spend on other weapons or utility in subsequent rounds.
Uncooperative actions, such as killing teammates, result in a penalty.
Destiny 2 is a free to play online-only multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie.
It has won The Game Award for Best Community Support.
Destiny 2 is a first-person shooter game that incorporates role-playing and massively multiplayer online game (MMO) elements.
The original Destiny includes on-the-fly matchmaking that allowed players to communicate only with other players with whom they were “matched” by the game. To communicate with other players in the game world, players had to use their respective console’s messaging system.
Destiny 2 features a more optimal way of matchmaking called “Guided Games”, which allows players to search for clans who may need additional players for activities, such as strikes or raids.
Like the original, activities in Destiny 2 are divided among player versus environment (PvE) and player versus player (PvP) game types.
Team Fortress 2
Team Fortress 2 is a free to play multiplayer first-person shooter game developed and published by Valve.
The player can join one of two teams, RED or BLU, and choose one of 9 character classes to battle in game modes such as capture the flag and king of the hill.
In Team Fortress 2, two teams compete for a combat-based objective.
Players can choose to play as one of nine character classes in these teams, each with his own unique strengths, weaknesses, and weapons. In order to accomplish objectives efficiently, a balance of these classes is required due to how these strengths and weaknesses interact with each other in a team-based environment.
Team Fortress 2 has a variety of Game Modes and Characters which is why the game provides a very rich and varied experience.
Unlike the first 3 free to play games on this list this isn’t an FPS(First Person Shooter) game but a MOBA(Multiplayer Online Battle Arena)
Dota 2 is played in matches between two teams of five players, with each team occupying and defending their own separate base on the map.
Each of the ten players independently controls a powerful character, known as a “hero“, who all have unique abilities and differing styles of play.
During a match, players collect experience points and items for their heroes to successfully defeat the opposing team’s heroes in player versus player combat.
A team wins by being the first to destroy the other team’s “Ancient“, a large structure located within their base.
I don’t have much to say about Dota 2, its all your experience that you should decide by playing the game
You may also want to consider League of Legends as it is another good free to play MOBA and is a big competitor of Dota 2
Who doesn’t know about Fortnite, well, for who doesn’t
Fortnite is a free to play online video game developed by Epic Games and released in 2017.
It is available in three distinct game mode versions that otherwise share the same general gameplay and game engine: Fortnite: Save the World, a cooperative shooter-survival game for up to four players to fight off zombie-like creatures and defend objects with fortifications they can build
Fortnite Battle Royale, a free-to-play battle royale game where up to 100 players fight to be the last person standing
Fortnite Creative, where players are given complete freedom to create worlds and battle arenas.
The most popular being Fortnite Battle Royale
Fortnite Battle Royale is a player-versus-player game for up to 100 players, allowing one to play alone, in a duo, or in a squad (usually consisting of three or four players). Weaponless players airdrop from a “Battle Bus” that crosses the game’s map. When they land, they must scavenge for weapons, items, resources, and even vehicles while trying to stay alive and to attack and eliminate other players
