I feel like you can get a pretty good multiplayer experience without spending a dime, so here’s a list of free-to-play multiplayer PC games available on Steam that are worth trying in no particular order!

Spell Break (9/10)

Initially, Spellbreak should seem instantly familiar to anyone who has played a battle royale. However, from the basic framework, the game quickly diverges from battle royale conventions. As a radical “Battlemage” wizard, you have no need for mortal firearms. Instead of guns, your weapons are different elemental gauntlets. You pick one of these gauntlets before starting a match to shape your general playstyle as you’ll have their distinct abilities for the entire round. You also find more gauntlets on the battlefield to equip on your other hand, giving you access to two elements at once. Spellbreak is more of a third-person, competitive multiplayer, action RPG than a standard shooter. The big, flashy magical spells turn fights into explosive spectacles—more frantic and more exciting than hiding in a bathtub with a shotgun. With only 42 players at once instead of 100, matches breeze by whether you play solo, duo, a bunch of three. If you die when playing with teammates, you become a ball of light. You can slowly move around for a limited amount of time searching for a teammate to revive you. However, if a foe catches you first, they can then exile you for good. Large projectiles combined with generous health and shields make combat feel more approachable for casual players than PUBG—or even Fortnite, with its unwieldy building system.

Brawlhalla (9/10)

Brawlhalla is a well-made title that is definitely worth checking out. Whether you’re looking for a free-to-play combat game, a Smash Bros. alternative, or just a new fighter experience, Brawlhalla is the game for you. In fact, the game is so well done that it’s easy to forget it’s an indie title. It lets you choose the legend you like and grind it to master it. You can’t expect much from the game, but once you start playing, you can’t stop having fun. Unlike other games, it might require some high skills. Newcomers might feel it hard because the match-making is totally not stable and the smurfs are everywhere. Just make sure you have a good internet connection. Ideal for party games and games to chill with your friends. Perfectly good for low spec PCs, brawlhalla is a must-play.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (9/10)

Valve’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is backed by a strong heritage of multiplayer FPS titles, including the original Counter-Strike and Counter-Strike: Source. It is a fast-paced game that still mostly holds its own against more modern titles, partly because of its established core gameplay and community. Visually, however, CS: GO is starting to show its age and it’s not as thematically rich as other popular titles, such as Overwatch. Still, many players will enjoy CS: GO’s no-frills experience and competitive scene, especially now that it is free to play. A big part of its success is due to its massive esports following. It’s always among the top titles streaming on Twitch and Mixer, and it benefits from a well-established (and financially lucrative) competitive scene. The game even includes a dedicated Watch section so you can follow and spectate tournaments.

Apex Legends (9/10)

 “Apex Legends is a lot like most battle royale games. You drop from the sky onto an island, sweep the floor for weapons and gear, and scramble to stay inside a series of ever-shrinking circles pressing 60 people towards inevitable conflict. But Apex Legends is also the product of the genre’s failures so far, a patient and refined response that makes for the most accessible, uncompromising battle royale experience yet.

Every gun has ballistics, the titans are gone, and so is wall-running. The guns feel as responsive and peppy as they have since Modern Warfare. A hand cannon with a slow reload and magnum stopping power makes it feel like a cowboy’s Single Action Army. Almost every gun has a unique personality. The main thing is there’s something for everyone: semi-auto rifles, auto rifles, LMGs, and SMGs. Weapon stats are improved by finding and equipping attachments scattered all over the map. Inventory management is still the worst part of battle royale. But Apex auto-equips anything better than what you already have on a compatible weapon. You can dig around and swap some attachments between weapons, or opt for a lesser scope if you prefer it.” -PCGamer

Warframe (9/10)

“Warframe is an addictive online game that combines melee action, snappy shooting, and outstanding character mobility with mission-based progression, exciting multiplayer battles, and excellent sci-fi visuals. Warframe is a content-rich experience, despite its grind-heavy, free-to-play nature. If there’s a major Warframe gripe, it’s the late-game content that incorporates MMO-style activities like fishing, animal trapping, and mining—a complete departure from the game’s action-focused core. The actions are unique to each Warframe. These moves generally fall into the attack, buff/debuff, mobility, or distraction types. Some skills have your Warframe deliver a massive blow, others boost you and your allies’ strength, while others can confuse or blind your target. These are all generally useful move sets, and these kits define a Warframe (at least until the endgame, where you can swap abilities). Still, Warframe is packed with thrilling moments, so if you’re looking for an action-packed PC game, don’t overlook this title.” – PCMAG
