We all love playing online games and recently the online multiplayer gaming genre has switched over to the battle royale segment. Battle royale games have become so much popular that now we have more than 20+ battle royale games. Which are available as free or paid-to-play.
know about the history of battle royale games-
If you ask me, my first ever experience with battle royale was PUBG mobile and then Apex legends. Before this, I was used to playing counter-strike 1.6.
There is a video about the history of battle royal games which I will be pinning down below.
It’s a great video by GameSpot.
Back to the topic of free battle royale games to play. The games I am going to list here are available on PC and Xbox, I can’t perfectly say about other consoles, you have to check them.
Free battle royales to play are as follows-
Realm Royale or formerly known as Paladins: Battlegrounds. Is a free-to-play game which is available on steam and epic launcher. The game is a fantasy based where you can forge awesome weapons and craft powerful skills.
The game follows the same battle royale mechanism of surviving with a twist. The twist is once you are knocked down you became a chicken, so in your chickened version you have to survive for a time then you may be transformed back into the game.
Heroic Leap Games are the developer of the game. The game was first released in June 2018 and was a hit at that time with peak players of 100,000+.
Now Realm Royale has become Realm Royale Reforged and right now it’s in its early access stage. You can visit the steam store and try out the game.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt-
SharkMob presents Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt is a free-to-play battle royale game. Which is available on steam. The game is based on vampire-style roleplay.
Where the main storyline is that there is a war going on between vampire sects and you have to fight and exterminate other vampires. The game is good if you like the vampire genre.
The last vampire-style game I played was Vampyr which was a pretty good storytelling game where the main character was a doctor who becomes a vampire.
Vampire: The Masquerade was released in April 2022 for both windows and PS5 consoles. The player count on steam charts is not so massive but you should try this game if you find dark action games fun.

In rumbleverse you loot food and different-different energy drinks which can give you different abilities based on the drink. Like strength, stamina and health. The game is very fun to play once you understand how energy drink consumption works.
So you can build your character with a unique fighting style. In rumbleverse, there is a star-collecting thing. Which activates the superstar move. So if you are downed once you will be revived back again using those stars.
Or you can actually use a superstar move to fight the stronger opponent. You can use the superstar move again if you have enough stars collected. The game is available on the epic launcher.

The battle royale game exists after the storyline events of Titanfall. Characters are from the titanfall storyline and now they have become legends and fight in the game called apex legends.
When the game got first released there were only 6 characters and at present, the character number has grown to 23. Every character has unique powers which help them in the fight.
The abilities are divided into two segments one is passive which can be used again and again after a short recharge. Second is the ultimate ability which takes a longer time to charge on its own.
The ultimate abilities are different with each character some ultimate abilities are for the hunt or destroying enemy opponents and some are for relocating your squad. The game can be played in trios or duos mode only. There is no solo mode in this game.
