We all love to pay nothing for an epic game but sometimes free games can be a little disappointing, to say the least.

Luckily, I have done extensive research and found the best free games out there and left their names, trailers and a little info on them for you to check out.

If you have any favourite free games make sure to leave the name in the comments below so that everyone can check them out too.

Team Fortress

Team Fortress is one of the most popular free games out there, it has loads of different game modes for you to get straight into. There’s also a huge selection of weapons, hats and things to buy and trade.

It has a giant online multiplayer community that is still super busy so you’re never going to be lonely in the large team fortress world.


Paladins is a fantasy world, one that Overwatch gamers recommend if you can’t get yourself a copy of the game.

It’s a team-based shooter with strategy elements. You can also customize your character so much and from there you increase their abilities and skills.

If you are familiar with overwatch you will see how similar this free game is. It’s a great way to see if you like this sort of fantasy/ancient technology gameplay before you buy overwatch. However, some players even say it’s better than overwatch so it’s worth checking out for yourself.

If you like paladins then you’ll love these amazing games like overwatch.
