We already know there are some killer games that are set for release in 2018 that you will have to scrape all those cents together for, but what about some free games? Everybody loves free games...
2018 is going to be great regardless of buying games or downloading it for free, so here is an awesome list of games that probably won't cost you a thing:
1. Unreal Tournament (PC)
Unreal Tournament III still stands as one of the most favourite shooter games ever and the fact that there is a new one coming out, that will be free, will make a lot of gamers happy. Free means completely free in this case, without any extra microtransactions at all or loot boxes.
Unreal plans on releasing the hardcore arena shooter sometime this year and, instead of offering loot boxes or DLC, the developer will let players buy assets from the store such as skins and items made by people all over the world. This free game is going to be the return of the much-loved first-person shooter that we have been craving.
2. Total War Arena (PC)
This is the first free game in the Total War series, and Total War Arena continues to push the RTS genre that the series is so well-known for and this time they allow everyone to jump in on the action for free. Total War Arena will merge an online RTS genre with a touch of MOBA too, where players will be able to take control of one of ten factions as they pit themselves against other players online, with hundreds of soldiers under their command.
This free game will be the online warfare you have been waiting for.
3. Fortnite (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
While Fortnite has been in early access for some time now, and its Battle Royale mode free to play for all without purchasing early access, the title will finally release 2018 as a free to play game. This tower defence-like survival game sees you try and survive the storm as the end of the world has clearly come and, with it, millions of creatures known as Husks.
You and your team are set to survive during the day by crafting materials and build traps, weapons and structures to keep the Husks away from your objective when the storm hits.
It makes a great free game to play with hundreds of hours of content to sink into.
4. Gwent: The Witcher Card Game (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
After the great success of the Gwent card game introduced in The Witcher 3, it was a no-brainer that the team behind the game would release a standalone version of the mini-game in order to challenge that of the Hearthstone and The Elder Scrolls: Legends.
Gwent: The Witcher Card Game has been in early access for a long time now and it is just a matter of time before the game releases in its final form.
If you would rather wait for the final release then you might not have to wait too long.
