It’s easy to get caught in a loop of playing the same multiplayer games over and over. Honestly, it’s tough to blame people! Between work, family time, and all the other things we do in our lives, who can afford to spend hours every week learning a new game? Still, it’s nice when you find free multiplayer games that are actually fun. Here are some of our favorite free online multiplayer games that you should check out right away.
PUBG is a popular battle royale game, available on PC and Xbox One. It’s free to play—and has a large player base to match. It’s also highly competitive, with players collecting loot and fighting each other until there’s only one left standing.
In PUBG, you make your way through an island overrun by zombies—surviving as long as possible while avoiding other players who want to kill you for your gear. The game has three main modes: Solo (where you have no teammates), Duo (for two players), and Squad (for four). In all modes, the aim is to be the last person or team alive amid an ever-shrinking map filled with zombies!
This game is a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. Overwatch assigns players into two teams of six, with each player selecting from a roster of over 20 characters, known as heroes, each with a unique style of play who are divided into four general categories: Offense, Defense, Tank and Support. Players on a team work together to secure and defend control points on a map or escort a payload across the map in a limited amount of time.
Overwatch is what you’d get if Team Fortress 2 and League of Legends had an illegitimate love child: It’s got the character design sense and bright colors that make TF2 so appealing, but it has all the precision controls (and 100% less physics) from LoL.
As long as you have friends who want to play with you—or even if they don’t—you’ll find yourself having fun here for hours on end!
Fortnite is a survival game that pits you against 99 other players, who are all trying to be the last person standing. Battle royale, as it’s called, has been popular since PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battleground) was released in 2017. This was followed by Fortnite: Battle Royale in July 2017 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Royale mode (released November 2018).
The game is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One and mobile devices. You can download it from Epic Games website or download the app from your phone’s app store if you have an Android device or Apple device running iOS 11+ (iPhone 5S & above).
There are also several different modes including Save the World where you save survivors from zombies as well as Creative mode for building worlds with friends!
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a first-person shooter game developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. The game is the 14th installment in the Call of Duty series and was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 12, 2018 as a sequel to 2017’s Call of Duty: World War II.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 takes place during an alternate history Cold War where the United States has lost millions to both its own atomic weapons tests and those of other countries such as Russia. In response, America creates sleeper agents known as “ghosts” who can be activated at any time to help fight against such threats from around the world. When these ghosts are awakened, they must use their unique skillset to prevent another world war from breaking out by any means necessary (even if it means killing).
Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is an open world action-adventure game developed by Rockstar Games and published by Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive. Released on October 26, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the game is a sequel to 2010’s Red Dead Redemption. The game takes place in an alternate version of the Western United States in 1899 as tensions between cowboys and lawmen rise after the assassination of John Marston at the end of Red Dead Redemption.
Red Dead Online, a multiplayer component to the game, was released on November 6, 2018 as an optional component that adds cooperative gameplay features against computer controlled enemies or other players. On April 3rd 2021 this service will be free for everyone who has purchased RDR2 on any platform(PS4/XBOX ONE/PC).
World of Warcraft
World of Warcraft is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by Blizzard Entertainment. After 11 years of development, it was released in 2004 for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. Since then, the game has been updated with additional content, which includes: two expansion packs, six sequels and various side games. As of November 2014, World of Warcraft had over 100 million accounts registered with servers in North America and Europe.
World of Warcraft takes place within the fictional world of Azeroth. Players control avatars known as “heroes” that explore a virtual world much larger than any other previous MMORPGs to date. With over 120 races/classes to choose from and new ones being added all the time—you’ll find something you like!
There are a lot of great multiplayer games out there, but you have to pay for most of them
You can find a lot of great multiplayer games out there, but unfortunately most of them cost money. You can get away with playing some free games like Rocket League or Fortnite if you just want to play the game with your friends and not worry about whether or not you’re paying for it. However, these are exceptions to the rule. Most of your favorite multiplayer games will require an investment before you’re able to play them.
If you’re looking for a good multiplayer experience without spending any money, then I would recommend checking out Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Warframe on PS4/Xbox One and PC respectively (both available through PlayStation Plus). They both have very different combat styles that make them fun in their own way but still share similarities in terms of gameplay mechanics like shooting mechanics and character skillsets which makes learning each game fairly straightforward regardless which one you decide on first!
I hope that this article has helped you decide which game to play, whether it be PUBG or Fortnite. It is always fun when you can play a game with your friends, and I hope that the games listed in this article will bring you hours of entertainment.
