Best free games on Steam 2018
You dont have to pay a lot of money to play a good video game, because sometimes quality comes free of charge , and steam is usually the best place to find hidden treasures. There are quite a lot of free to play games on this platform and some of them are really complex titles with game play that can be enjoyed for hours or even days.
And this is why we thought it would be only fair to share with you our pick of best Steam games that should break the bank, but are actually totally free.
Everyone compare Paladins to Overwatch, and there’s a good reason for it: this free-to-play shooter does share some overt similarities, especially when it comes to character types. That dude up there, for example? You guessed it, he’s kinda like Reaper. What sets Paladins apart is that it is also heavily influenced by MOBAS. Once you pick a champion, you can’t change it. Each champion has a card loadout that influences abilities, and as you progress through a match, you gain currency to further upgrade your skills. You’ll still be capturing points and moving the payload, but Paladins offers more control over how you play. Worth noting: the game is in beta right now.

If you’re looking for a game to really sink your teeth into, Dota 2 is probably your best bet: I spent dozens of hours trying to master Valve’s MOBA, and barely scratched the surface. While your goal is straightforward—lead your creeps and team to the enemy base, so you can destroy a large structure known as the ancient—the depth and intensity that Dota 2 offers is staggering. It’s a great game for people with a competitive streak, provided you can keep your cool under pressure.
Warframe lets you play as a space ninja, and for a lot of you, that’s probably all that you need to know. Beyond that, it’s a third-person co-op affair that pits you against goons and other space ninjas, all wearing fancy ‘warframes’ that confer special abilities. It’s a slick action game with a hint of console gem Destiny about it, thanks to its buddy-up mission design and shared-world social environments. There may be a bit of grind involved if you want to craft the coolest gear, but you’ll be slicing people in half and powersliding around on your knees for most of that, so don’t be too concerned. It’s one of the most popular free games on Steam, meaning there’s always people to play with, and frequent big, expansion-like updates.
Team Fortress 2
What can one say about Team Fortress 2, Valve’s mega-popular, constantly evolving shooter? It has many hats. It’s also extremely refined, always full of players despite launching in 2007, and gets frequent updates to fatten the game up with even more hats, modes and maps. But despite how much the game has grown in the nine years since it launched, it remains easy to pick up, especially if you’ve got some chums to play with. The package itself now feels infinitely huge, with a great variety of game types, from the classic capture point team vs. team games, to co-op Mann vs. Machine, where players band together to keep waves of murderous robots at bay.
Free-to-play shooters in their more traditional, deathmatch-esque form are often a hit and miss affair, but despite all those polished triple-A offerings from the likes of Activision and EA, Crytek Kiev has managed to put together a robust little FPS that can be just as exciting and enjoyable as many other entries in the bullet-ridden genre.
Warface: Blackout offers four classes to choose from, with weapons, gear, attachments and specific skills tied to each one. Having the right balance of classes in your squad adds a more Battlefield-style teamwork ethic, especially when engineers can repair armour and snipers can pull of game-changing one-shot kills.
After four years of rotation on the field, Warface has also honed its online economy, neatly offering you the ability to spend in-game currency on a rental system that lets you test out guns and gear before investing time and cash into your own version.
