Best Free Games of 2021: Trailers & Reviews
We live in a time when free games are making more money for publishers than their paid alternatives. They attract a huge audience, and the donation system motivates you to make recurring payments and brings incomparable profits to the gaming industry. And this trend will continue in the future. It is no bad to pay money for a quality product, and the situation differs when you pay for one thing and then get something completely different.
Highly anticipated titles include Elyon, Roller Champions, and Scavengers. They all belong to different genres, so you will definitely find something to your taste. Some free download games on the site are still in development, and some are already in the public domain. Check out our list of the best free video games of 2021.
For several years now, the developers of TERA have been actively working on their new free multiplayer role-playing game. At first, the project was called Project W, then it was renamed to Ascent: Infinite Realm or A: IR. The dev company thought that this name was too complicated and changed it for the third time to Elyon. The game is created on Unreal Engine 3. It would seem that in 2021 you would like to see at least UE4 but do not rush to conclusions. The developers plan to attract attention not with the splendor of the graphics but with the content variety. Decorating Elyon in the steampunk style, they offer players to plunge into the atmosphere of endless battles, where technology and magic merged together.
It is a free competitive arcade game from Ubisoft, dedicated to 3v3 team battles on rollers. According to lore, players will travel to 2029 and find out that rollerball has become the most popular sport. This is not surprising at all -- athletes can accelerate up to 160 miles per hour and try to throw balls into the basket, constantly risking their lives. But do not worry, there will be no injuries in the game. It targets a wide audience, including children. Therefore, the cartoon graphics will not be overshadowed by bloody scenes and spectacular accidents.
It is a free online team-based third-person shooter with tactical and strategy elements. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic snowy world. And teams of three players will fight for survival in specially designed arenas. The gameplay at Scavengers combines the elements of PvP and PvE. The game can be called a battle royale with elements of survival. Twenty teams (up to 60 people) can be on the map simultaneously; each will try to get enough resources to get on the rescue ship.
All the games from this review have not been launched yet. They are expected to be available for free, and monetization will most likely be associated with hero customization. This is quite fair -- in free games, donations cannot affect the gameplay; otherwise, the game will crash.
