Top 3 Free FPS Games for 2021
The most popular and classic FPS titles are generally paid games, while the free-to-play section of that category is limited. Even so, there are some great options that you could choose from and enjoy several hours as of 2021. Here is the list stating the top 3 free games to play in 2021.
3| CounterStrike: Global Offensive (CSGO)
If you are aware of PC games, especially the FPS genre, you would have probably already heard about CounterStrike. It is one of the classics and has been around for a long time. CS: GO was developed by Valve Corporation and was released back in 2012. With more than eight years in existence, the game is still very popular and is played by thousands of players across the globe.
CS: GO has recently become free-to-play, which means you can enjoy the game without the need to pay for it. However, to play prime matches, one has to either reach in-game rank/ level 21 or buy prime. CS: GO is a 5v5 team-based, tactical FPS that relies on precise gunplay and tactics. There are multiple game modes available in the game but the three most popular ones are Competitive, Wingman and Deathmatch. If you like the competitive approach of 5v5 matches, you will love the first option, while wingman is the same concept but with a 2v2 setup on a small map. You can also just wander around the map while spraying different weapons and fight everyone on sight in a death match.
Valorant is one of the most popular releases of last year, ie. 2020. The game was teased as a “CS: GO killer” and had a huge influence on the gaming community before its release. Since its release, the game was undoubtedly a huge hit with major success across all regions. Valorant is a Free-to-play 5v5 hero-based tactical shooter that relies upon both gun-play and agents abilities. If you like CS: GO, you would also want to try Valorant as its gunplay over official 128 tick rate servers feels much smoother and responsive. The game has 16 agents to select from with classes like Initiator, Sentinel, Duelist, and Controller. Each of these agents has its own sets of abilities that are suitable in accord with their classes.
It surely is a great approach to the 5v5 tactical FPS genre and the agent abilities add up to the entire experience. Valorant also has multiple game modes while the Competitive still being the most popular and selected mode. Who doesn’t like some rank pushes? The game developer, Riot Games, has done a great job in maintaining the game and listening to the community output as much as possible. Valorant is relatively easier to learn than the other counterparts and is a fun game overall.
