If 2016 was a year rich in video games, 2017 also promises to be well-supplied with quality titles, whatever the platform. Looking for a free game to spend time on your Pc?
Here is a selection of games that will not ask you to pay any penny, and you will quickly find a reason not to leave your house.
A game of cards in the universe of Albion expected on PC and Xbox One, with a release date set July 11, 2017. Currently, in closed beta, Fable Fortune proposes to embody a hero among six different characters, each with a unique power, in PvP games or in cooperation.
Alignment, the emblematic system of the saga, also allows you to choose between good or bad side during the fighting to modify the powers and effects of the cards. At launch, Fable Fortune will be available with a Founder’s Pack for € 12.99, which includes 20 decks of cards, an exclusive Chicken Vengeance Trophy card, and the Giant Egg card. Subsequently, the game will be offered in a free-to-play format.
In the massively multiplayer first-person shooter (MMOFPS), PlanetSide 2, three factions compete for the conquest of the world (the Terrane Republic, the New Conglomerate, and the Vanu Sovereignty).
The game takes place in a universe where the war is constantly raging and where the balance of power tilts as soon as a base or territory is captured or lost. PlanetSide 2 features six character classes and over one hundred unlockable weapons.
Join the other players in a merciless fight on land, in the air or in vehicles. In PlanetSide 2, fierce fighting for territorial conquest is not just a question of victory, but rather a matter of survival.
There are in Tribes: Ascend nine classes of characters, but only three are available to the newcomers, from the lightest to the heaviest: Scouts, Soldiers, and Juggernauts. Each class can carry two weapons, which it will be possible to change when new ones have been unlocked.
The game features six fairly standard game modes, such as Team Deathmatch or Arena. The most popular mode is the Capture the Flag, which is particularly interesting as the maps are large, the aerial game play and the game more generally adapted to Teamplay.
The Team Death match mode has a funny feature: from the first death, a flag appears, the team that recovers the latter gets twice as many points. While some vehicles may be operated, they are of limited interest.
League of Legends
The concept is quite simple: instead of building a base, collecting resources and creating units as in any real-time strategy game, we manage a single character, a Champion, that will advance in combat Either against enemy heroes incarnated by the players of the opposing team, or against the neutral units (or creeps) disseminated on the map and who wait peacefully to be provoked.
The last element of the puzzle is the henchmen, troops generated regularly and automatically by each side, and who dash as one man to the opposing base. Their only objective: to reach the heart, whose destruction will lead to the defeat of the team that owns it?
Each base is protected by turrets that slow down the influx of these minions, even though these defenses will not eternally resist the attacks of enemy units and heroes.
Star Wars: The Old Republic
So we find ourselves just after the signing of the treaty of Coruscant. A treaty that forced the Republic to cede control of several solar systems to the Sith Empire, which was becoming more and more powerful.
If a fragile peace was maintained through the treaty, strong tensions remain and it’s in this context of cold war that your adventure begins. Your adventure will be different depending on the class you choose to embody.
Indeed, each has its own scenario. For example, if the Sith warrior will have to complete his training and then investigate a mysterious padawan who would have the power to detect the dark side by meeting a person, the Imperial agent will have to convince a powerful Huth governing a planet To rally to the Empire.
Competitor and far superior to its cousin World Of Warplane, War Thunder is a free2play simulation game of multi-player air combat developed by Gaijin Entertainment currently in open beta test phase.
Although only planes are available, War Thunder should open up to land and naval combat. And where the World Of Warplane series, World OfTank and World Of Warship are 3 different games, War Thunder should allow the combination of the three elements.
It will thus be possible to take part in a battle either as a plane pilot, captain of a ship or tank commander.
The game takes place in the fantastic world of Telara. Gateways or rifts begin to open in these once peaceful lands and serve as gateways for several groups of monsters. As a hero, you must defend your world against these flaws. If no one deals with these flaws, the invading monsters will eventually occupy and destroy the surrounding area.
Moreover, these faults open dynamically throughout the world. Thus, the calmest places can become the most dangerous and stimulating areas of action at any time. These faults are all the more interesting because there are six different groups of monsters (earth, fire, air, water, life, and death).
Each group despises a rival group. You must use these dynamics wisely in the middle of the fight.

During the games sessions, you fight other players. The backdrop is an eternal battle between the gods themselves. Long walks include Odin, Ra, Arachne or Vamana. These gods are respectively from the Nordic, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Mayan, Chinese and Hindu Pantheons. Final matches are held in different arenas.

In the online game Smite, you must not only fight against other players, who represent their Gods on the battlefields. You must also fight against Non-Player Characters, from various mythologies.
A massively multiplayer online role-playing game on PC, WildStar takes its place in a cartoon and futuristic universe. Drawing expertly from the best mechanisms of the MMO, WildStar remains in fact quite classic but nonetheless complete. It finds its originality especially in the combat system, very dynamic and mainly based on skill shots.
