This time the title of the post is extremely clear: we have 3 free games to choose this week, 3 very engaging and also challenging games, which can be played for free on Windows PCs and which have in common the theme of war, experienced firsthand.
For two of them these are not pastime games but really high-level titles, where you play with a computer connected to the internet, against other players on the net.
The third, Duty Calls, is a parody of the famous Call Of Duty game, blockbuster and best war game of recent years.
The fact that they are free games for windows it is certainly an added value for videogames that would still have had their market even if they had been paid for.
1) The first one is World Of Tanks, a tank warfare very fun, which is played in multiplayer and which I think will involve new players for at least a couple of months. The game is a mix between simulation and arcade shooter, very easy to play but also very thorough. In fact, if you are able to play and make war already from the first game, only after a while you can realize the difficulties and possibilities of the game. Basically, to beat opponents and destroy their tanks, you need to use your brain and move rationally. For example, it is important to take advantage of the environment, plants, bushes and buildings to hide from the shots and the sight of enemy tanks. World Of Thank is a team play, where the coverage of companions and the environment counts a lot.
The dynamics are very lively and fun, with a fast but not frantic and random simulation. As an MMO game, you need to gain experience and upgrade your weapons to get stronger and have more destructive weapons. When the Tank is hit it takes damage which must then be repaired. World of Tanks is theoretically completely free to play, in the sense that it can be downloaded and played at any time. You accumulate experience and money during the game but to decisively upgrade the wagon you would have to spend real money with credit card micropayments. It is not necessary to pay to have fun and if you are good you can win even without spending a penny; certainly, however, money can make a difference.
2) World of Warship e Word of Airplane, from the same production company, are war games very similar to World of Thanks, always strategic action games and belic simulations, respectively with naval battles and aerial battles.
3) Arma 2 Free is the realistic first person military simulation which I described in another article. Arma 2 Free is similar to BattleField, it is a complete game without limitations and without micro transactions, not too easy to play for the less experienced.
Bonus) DutyCalls (no longer exists but can still be downloaded from uptodown) is a remake of the hugely popular Call Of Duty game, revived with an ironic and desecrating version of the war. The game is absolutely complete and playable on the Windows computer, after downloading and installing it. Despite being a limited version, it is a real Call Of Duty, with a very fun war simulation. DutyCalls is not multiplayer and just wants to be a parody (unfortunately only in English) but it is a game that Call Of Duty fans must absolutely play, also because it is completely free.
Bonus 2) KumaWar is a game now abandoned, which still deserves to be remembered and played because it is a shooter with missions based on real facts of modern warfare. KumaWar recreates real-world conflicts in video game format using information drawn from news reports, military experts and the US Department of Defense. For example, the game's first mission is based on the capture of Saddam Hussein while other significant episodes include the killing of Al Zarqawi, Bin Laden and the Fallujah operation.
