2. Fortnite

Up next is Fortnite Battle Royale, a game that’s conceptually similar to BattleGrounds, but different in terms of story specifics and gameplay. Like BattleGrounds, it requires you to collect possessions and kill opposing players as a means of reaching your goal.

Fortnite isn’t quite as popular as BattleGrounds but still sports an impressive 40 million players. It’s available for PC, MAC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS.

The best part? It’s free! You can download it at no cost and start playing right away.

3. DoTA2

If you’re looking for a fun battle arena game, you should consider DoTA2. A sequel to Defense of the Ancients, it’s great for gamers of all experience levels.

This game requires you to fight in teams of 5. The goal is for your team to defeat opposing teams with the use of team-based strategies. In essence, the better your team is at working together, the greater the shot you have at winning the game.

DoTA2 is 100% free, meaning you can get started right now if you wish. Compatible with PC, Mac, and Linux, it’s available to essentially anyone with a PC. So, once you finish playing Blighty Bingo Online, you should give it a go.

4. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

As far as first-person shooters go, they don’t get much better than Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Hugely popular among the E-sports community, it’s a game of skill, strategy, and concentration.

When playing the game, you have the option to be either a terrorist or a counter-terrorist. If you decide to be a terrorist, you become responsible for planting bombs. If you decide to be a counter-terrorist, you become responsible for defusing those bombs.

This game is available on a number of platforms, including PC, Linux, Mac, PS3, and Xbox 360. Though it was released 7 years ago, it didn’t develop much of a following until this year.

At the present time, around 20 million people play it. While we can’t be certain, this might have something to do with the fact that it’s now free.

5. Rocket League

Do you like racing? Do you also enjoy football? If so, you might like Rocket League, a racing-football hybrid that’s about as addictive as online games come.

Rocket League is a team-based game. You and one or two teammates will compete with different teams from throughout the world, scoring crazy goals and racing to the finish line.

This game is available for Linux, PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It’s available for just $19.99, a small price to pay for a game that you’ll have trouble putting down.

6. Borderlands 3

The Borderlands games are some of the most popular in existence. While versions 1 and 2 were both huge hits, version 3 was just released in September. Like the first two, it has been well-received.

This is a first-person shooter game. However, unlike many first-person shooters, it’s light on violence. While there is, indeed, shooting going on, it’s happening in an over-the-top way that’s more humorous than it is brutal.

The downside to Borderlands 3? It’s expensive, costing over $50 to purchase. That being said, if you’re interested, it’s available for PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One.

7. Path of Exile

Up next is Path of Exile, an RPG that sends you on a journey to collect loot and kill various monsters. Featuring seamless gameplay and top-notch graphics, it’s one of the most immersive gaming experiences imaginable.

In this game, you’ll make your way through dungeons, caves, water, and other entities, all the while collecting treasure and staving off evil beings. It allows for both solo and co-op play.

Path of Exile is available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The best part? It’s entirely free to play!

8. Apex Legends

Our list will conclude with Apex Legends, a hugely popular battle royale game that came out this year, and which has actually boosted the success of some of its predecessors. Possessing top-notch graphics and gameplay, it only figures to get more popular as time passes.

This game provides a wide variety of characters for you to play with, each of which offers something different in terms of personality and fighting capabilities. A game of strategy and skill, it’s played with teams of 3.

Apex Legends is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Like many of today’s battle royale games, it’s available free of charge.
