Ninjas and Space. Two of the coolest things you can think of normally. Now, think of a game which allows you to become an ultra-cool Space Ninja who fights off all sorts of evil enemies with a sprinkle of space magic for good measure. That game is Warframe and is currently one of the hottest free to play games on the console market. The Digital Extremes title allows players to control ancient warriors known as The Tenno, who use powerful combat suits called Warframes. These Warframes thrust players in adrenaline-fueled combat against various enemy factions in a third-person gameplay experience any looter-shooter fan will adore.

Warframe is currently available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

World of Tanks

The majority of historical war games consist of first-person shooters. However, if you are looking for something a bit…bigger in Calibur, World of Tanks is the perfect title for you to try. Thrusting players into large scale battles controlling authentic tanks from the mid 19th century, World of Tanks offers a unique gameplay experience that rewards strategy and tactical play. Roam large scale maps covering major battle points of the world and more. Rev up your engines, and get your crew ready!

Darwin Project

Fortnite, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, and Apex Legends are likely the games you think of when you are talking about the popular battle royale genre. However, the free to play battle royale title of the Darwin Project puts a unique spin on the last player surviving idea. Instead of a massive amount of players, the Darwin project focuses only on ten players who fight against each other in a post-apocalyptic Northern Canadian Rockies.  Only armed with a bow and ax, players must scavenge for resources to craft useful items and upgrade their weapons to defeat their opponents while surviving against the elements. These are also other significant differences that set the Darwin project apart. An 11th player plays the role of the Director who can influence various aspects of a match like telling players where other players are or perhaps deciding to launch a nuke on the map.

The Darwin Project is currently available on the Xbox One.

These five free to play console games are perfect ways for players to enjoy massive amounts of fun with their family and friends without having to break the bank to do so. They will keep you occupied well through until the next crop of big games, and even beyond!
