You can have various professions and activities including mining, harvesting, manufacturing, pirating and many more. Eve Online offers and extensive gameplay experience, a complex take on strategic planning and lots of hours of immersive enjoyment.
League of Legends
The online multiplayer battle arena everyone loves to play is also a worldwide famous eSport that has important championships and prizes. It can be played for free and the in-game champions can be bought with real life money or in-game currency, like in many MOBAs.
This game doesn’t need an extensive presentation since it’s so popular and it’s played by so many people that it’s virtually impossible to not have heard about it.
Path of Exile
Path of Exile presents itself as a completely free game that will never be “pay to win”. It’s set in the fantasy world of Wraeclast and it has a prominent item economy and character customization. It also offers complex PVP matches and ladder races.
If you are a Diablo fan and don’t want to invest money in a game, then Path of Exile is the best next thing you can try. It’s fun, it’s fast paced and it offers a great deal of gameplay variety.
Yet another competitive online game that involves action and strategy, Dota 2 is played by professionals and amateurs alike. It’s a well-known eSport and has dedicated championships all around the globe.
The player can choose from a number of over 100 champions and the gameplay is obviously MOBA oriented. The fact that it can be enjoyed entirely for free and it only requires skill and concentration, makes it a perfect addition to our list.
Team Fortress 2
Team Fortress 2 is an online first person shooter multiplayer and is the sequel of the 1996 mod for Quake and its 1999 remake. There are nine character classes that have a wide range of abilities and personalities.
Also, you will benefit from frequently updated game modes, weapons, maps and, of course, let’s not forget about the most important items from the game: hats! TF 2 is a fun to play community game and it surely warrants a try.
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
Known simply as Hearthstone, this game is one of Blizzard’s most popular title and it is an online collectible card video game. It also became a popular eSport and by April 2016, 50 million players were reportedly playing this game.
Hearthstone offers the chance to enjoy a virtual card game that is based on the Warcraft universe and that includes characters and powers inspired by it. The gameplay is not very fast paced, it requires thinking and it’s very methodical.
Heroes of the Storm
Blizzard chose to classify Heroes of the Storm as an online hero brawler, avoiding to name it a multiplayer battle arena or an action real-time strategy because they felt it doesn’t necessarily fall into these categories due to its broader gameplay stile.
This game includes characters from various franchises such as Diablo, Warcraft, StarCraft and Overwatch. It can be enjoyed by any type of gamer, being fairly simple to learn and play.
World of Tanks/Warplanes/Warships
We thought it would be a good idea to include all the titles from this series since they are pretty similar but offer different styles of gameplay. World of Tanks is an online massive multiplayer game that debuted as an eSports title at the World Cyber Games 2012.
In all the games, the player takes control of a single vehicle and is placed on a map in a battle against other players. The war vehicles can be customized and upgraded to reach the next tier. So depending on what historically accurate type of war machine you like, Wargaming has you covered.
