While we are all staying home in hopes to flatten the curve with the COVID-19 outbreak, countless major online gaming platforms have released several free PC games to get us through the global lockdown. Can we please take a moment to appreciate their act of kindness and generosity?

Today, we have rounded up a list of top 5 free PC games that you should play during (and also after) the MCO. Because, well, free mobile games just aren’t enough to pass the time and keep us sane. 

Our Top 5 Free PC Games

1) Call of Duty: Warzone

A free version of Call of Duty? No, you’re not dreaming! Call of Duty: Warzone is a free to play 150-player battle Royale that is part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. You can play alone or with up to 3 friends.

The game features two main modes; Plunder and Battle Royale. We know what Battle Royale is so we’ll skip that. As for the Plunder mode, teams have to search for stacks of Cash scattered around the map to accumulate $1 million. Once found, the game goes into overtime, with all Cash sums by 1.5. The team who has gathered the most money when the clock runs out is declared the winner.

2) Dauntless

Dauntless offers the same brilliant monster-slaying gameplay as Monster Hunter, but for FREE. You can choose to team up with up to 3 friends to take on a series of challenging monsters to protect mankind. Each monster you kill offers a new set of attacks and abilities to learn and overcome.

3) Smite

Following the same formula as League of Legends and Dota 2, Smite has teams of five players made up of Gods inspired by real religions to fight their way into their opponent’s base. What makes this game interesting is its third-person perspective instead of the boring top-down view of the battlefield. This means more actions than tactics!

4) Warframe

If you are into third-person co-op games, Warfare is great. The game is set in space where teams of ninjas head out to slice up bad guys or just hang out at the dojo. It blends some MMO elements with the sensibilities of a more straightforward action game and thus making the game slick, exciting, and very sociable. 

Warframe is better looking than your usual free-to-play shooter. There’s a lot of fun to be had in Warframe’s player-vs-enemy raids – so much so that it received high praises from gamers around the world.

5) Planetside 2

Planetside 2 is an epic first-person battle that’s so unbelievable, you’ll want to pinch yourself each time you boot it up that a game this incredible is free to play. Of course, it comes with in-game purchases. But you can still have a remarkable time with your starter equipment. There’s nothing as thrilling as taking part in a mass assault on an enemy base and coming out on top!
