Best free games 2022 | TechRadar

Free games used to be a dirty word in PC gaming, but the best free games have matured considerably since the downright scammy pay-to-win shovelware of the past few years. Those kinds of games are still around, of course, but that’s not all there is anymore, and some of the best PC games you can play right now are also free to play, and they’ve changed the landscape considerably.

Whether it’s MMORPGs like Final Fantasy XIV and EVE Online, addictive card games like Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, or arena battle royales like Apex Legends, there’s are more high-quality free games out there than ever before. And while a lot of newer titles do have some demanding system requirements, not all of them do, and they can easily be played on much less powerful hardware than you’d need for something like Cyberpunk 2077.
