The 21 Best Free RPG And MMORPG Games For PC

The 21 Best Free RPG and MMORPG Games for PC

Today we bring you a list of the 21 best free RPGs and MMORPGs for PC. RPGs are traditional RPGs for PC, while MMORPGs are multiplayer online role-playing games, a genre that you can almost always play for free, but where there are also some micropayment options with which developers monetize them.

We have arranged the titles alphabetically so that there is no dispute about which ones are better or worse. We have tried to vary the genre as much as possible, and we have everything from big franchises to more experimental titles. We also included some open-source RPGs, which are the closest to the classic single-player gaming experience.

Albion Online

‘Albion Online’ is a multiplayer online role-playing game, an open-world MMORPG set in a medieval fantasy setting. Your objective is to explore, manufacture, trade, and conquer. Its economic system is based on the players themselves, who are the ones who make almost all the elements.

For the rest, the game allows you to combine pieces of armor and weapons to adapt your character to the way you play, with a unique character system without classes. You will have to explore, go into battle, conquer territories, build your fortresses, and get into player vs player zones and clan wars.

Bit Heroes

It is a game that pays homage to RPGs based on exploring dungeons, includes turn-based combat systems, and has a pixelated design that is also based on 8-bit and 16-bit consoles. Initially, it was intended as a game for mobile devices, but it has also ended up coming to PC.

The game has a total of 52 zones that are automatically generated, components that you must craft, recycle and use to improve pieces, and 100 creatures that you can capture and evolve to fight against you. It also has a cooperative game with friends and even PvP combat, with a guild system and online communities.


An online cooperative RPG for four people in which groups must join forces to face the powerful Behemoth. The only way to survive their ferocious attacks will be to become a true Slayer.

Created by Phoenix Labs, made up of former members of Capcom, BioWare, Riot Games, or Blizzard, another detail of this game is the fact that the protagonists will be able to improve and manufacture new pieces of armor and weapons to combat these creatures that inhabit Shattered Isles.

Dungeons & Dragons Online

Another free MMORPG game, or at least one that allows you to play for free until you reach level 20 with your character. In it, you will have to go through all kinds of dungeons going through all kinds of traps and being able to choose a character that can be a warrior, wizard, or rogue. You can make purchases to level up, have additional adventures, and experience boosters.

The game has all the mythical creatures of D&D, including dragons, mind flayers, and beholders. You can start the adventures on your own, but also by creating groups of friends. There is a guild system to meet new people, and when creating a character you can choose between 8 races, 13 classes, and all kinds of skills.

The Lord of the Rings Online

‘The Lord of the Rings Online’ is a game that has more than ten long years behind it, in which it has undergone many changes and has suffered setbacks from which it has been rising. But it is a live game that has already received several expansions.

The game offers you to explore Middle-earth with the most famous locations, including the Shire, the Mines of Moria, and Lothlórien. You can create heroes and advance in its free mode up to level 75, being able to choose between 4 races, nine classes, 10 professions, 7 vocations, and more than 1,000 titles, abilities, and traits. You can play solo with single-player skirmishes or with other people in its various multiplayer modes.


If something is clear to you at this point in the list, it is that, as we said at the beginning, if you want a good free RPG you have to bet on MMORPGs. But that’s not to say there aren’t any alternatives, and the open-source world has some interesting classic RPGs, albeit rather more basic in graphics and appearance.

Erebus is one of them, a simple game for lovers of dungeon exploration. Dungeons are randomly created, and you have multiple quests to complete. You have several characters to choose from, and it takes you right into the action without a first mission that involves looking for your neighbor’s lost pet.

Eve Online

‘EVE Online’ is an excellent science fiction massively multiplayer role-playing and strategy game released in 2003, with a business model based on a periodic subscription. However, in November 2016 it became free, although there is still a subscription for those who want to get more rewards.

In this game, you will be able to pilot different spaceships to travel through a galaxy with more than 7000 star systems, which are connected by jump gates. And in this great universe, it’s up to you to go exploring, collecting resources, facing other players, and ultimately, survive while you level up and improve your equipment.

Everquest ii

A fantastic medieval world with an impressive history, culture, and hundreds of places to explore. ‘EverQuest II’, set in the Destiny Age (500 years before EverQuest), allows players to enter this persistent world by creating their characters and being able to choose from 16 races and 48 classes using an advanced facial customization system.

It is a massively multiplayer online title, in which you can find a community of thousands of clans. In the game, you will be able to find more than 5,000 creatures to fight and more than 8,000 quests to complete. You can play solo, in a group, in raids, and in player vs player modes, with a dungeon finder system to join matches and seasonal events. You can also pay for potions, weapons, armor, classes, races, or mounts.


Flare is a 2D RPG and action game very similar to Diablo, and that stands out for being Open Source under the GPL3 license, and open to you being able to modify it and make improvements or a new game with it. Its main campaign is the Empyrean Campaign, created by the official development team.

Their story begins with the player being exiled from their Empyrean homeland, causing them to embark on a quest to regain their way in. On this journey, you will visit many regions, with many side quests and a wide variety of enemies. Another of the few RPGs not designed for the online world on the list.

Genshin Impact

‘Genshin Impact’ is one of the biggest hits of 2020, a free role-playing game with a graphic aesthetic strongly influenced by ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ but with more anime characters. As we said, it is a free game, but it contains a microtransaction system to be able to buy new characters or a battle pass to ensure a continuous flow of materials.

This open-world RPG puts us in the shoes of a traveler from another world who awakens in Teyvat, a fantasy world where the seven elements flow and converge. The game can be played solo or in cooperative mode and stands out for its action-packed combat system and its very beautiful appearance.

Guild Wars 2

‘Guild Wars 2’ is a mythical RPG that began as a paid game and ended up embracing the free-to-play model a couple of years ago. Of course, it is a bit strange, and while the base game is free, the expansions are paid. It is an MMORPG without quotas, with an excellent PVP aspect and a PVE that has many ingredients to please its fans.

Its developers are not going through a good run, but for now, the game is still standing and you can continue enjoying it, with its day and night cycles and all its interactions. You can choose between eight different classes, and go forging your path.

Heroes of Might and Magic Online

Ubisoft deconstructs the legendary RPG saga to transform it into an MMO in which epicness, fantastic creatures, and magic take control of the renewed turn-based combat system created for the occasion, with an extra incentive: cooperative games.

The game has a 2D main map through which you move just like the rest of the titles in the saga, only that you can also meet other players on it. You will also have the classic turn-based combat with the grid map. You can play by yourself, but there will be challenges for which the cooperation of other players suits you better, and as always in online games you will also have PvP to face others in single combat.

Lineage II

Lineage II is a fantasy MMORPG considered a proto-sequel of 150 years of Lineage, where Humans, White Elves, Dark Elves, and Kamael coexist in the kingdom of Aden, while Dwarves and Orcs start in the kingdom of Elmore. It is a game that is around 15 years old behind it, and that in 2012 leaped a free modality.

You have two possibilities when it comes to playing it, use the game as it is today with all the improvements it has experienced in more than a decade, or return to the classic Lineage II from the beginning. Depending on your choice you will have more or fewer races, and the adventures will be simpler or with more background.

Neverwinter: Uprising

Cryptic Studios, creators of titles such as ‘City of Heroes’, ‘Champions Online’ or ‘Star Trek Online’, sign this video game based on the Dungeons & Dragons universe. More specifically, ‘Neverwinter’ seeks with its title to be the heir to mythical RPG sagas such as ‘Neverwinter Nights’, although focusing more on the action RPG and multiplayer.

It is based on Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition, again focusing on the Forgotten Realms city of Neverwinter, translated as Noyvern in the Spanish books. It is free, and it has no limits in areas, accesses, or characters despite that. It has a clan system to give more juice to its multiplayer concept, as well as good mechanics and a well-designed difficulty curve.

NGU Idle

This is possibly the most peculiar game on the list by far, although ranked among the best RPGs according to Steam. It is a game without graphics in which you will not see your character evolve, and the only thing it offers you is an interface in inventory mode with graphics painted in Paint.

It is an Idle game, which means that everything will progress automatically. Your character will gain experience second by second, and all you have to do is train him or send him to explore. In your inventory then you will have to deal with the 350 unique items that you can obtain. All this with a sense of humor and classic RPG components such as having to train your character, level up your skills and go exploring.

Path of Exile

‘Path of Exile’ is a free-to-play game that will delight fans of the Diablo saga, as its isometric view and some interface elements such as life spheres have a similar style to the first games of the series The game is free with micropayments, although these will not help you improve your heroes.

In this game, you will have to face all kinds of challenges and fight against dozens of types of creatures. You will also have to get new pieces of equipment to improve your characters, runes that will modify the effects of magic, and a wide skill tree so that each one adapts it better to their way of playing.


Runescape has been with us for more than ten years, a time in which this popular free MMORPG has undergone many transformations. It is set in the fantastic world of Gielinor, and you will find many races, guilds, and gods fighting for dominance. The game has over 200 story-based missions, with plenty of skills to practice and hone.

Star trek online

A few years ago this game required fees and subscriptions, but in 2012 it changed its model to free-to-play. ‘Star Treck Online’ is an MMO based on the universe of the popular saga, in which you will take the role of a captain of the Federation of United Planets or the Klingon Empire, to face various missions of exploration, defense, and stellar combat.

It’s an MMO, a massive online player more focused on character interaction and joint quests than pure RPG, but it puts you inside a character where you have to play your role as you level up, so in some ways way also has elements of RPGs. It also has a high dose of customization, from your character to the ship.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

The Star Wars saga also has its massively multiplayer online role-playing game, ‘Star Wars: The Old Republic’ that this year has been revitalized by receiving a new free expansion three years after the previous one, and which places us in the middle of the war between the Sith and the Republic. Remember that the title is set more than 3,500 years before Luke Skywalker was born.

The game also places us 300 years after the events of ‘Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic’, just after the end of the second installment of one of the most acclaimed classic RPG franchises in history. As in those games, your actions will bring you closer to the dark side or the path of the Jedi, and you will face all kinds of challenges and game types, and you can also play accompanied like a good online game.

Valyria Tear

An open-source JRPG for a single player, with a medieval fantasy theme that is slightly reminiscent of those JRPGs we saw in the 16-bit era, and does not hide being inspired by them. In the title, we play Bronann, a young man forced to participate in the fight for the possession of a mysterious crystal.

The game has all the features you can expect from JRPG classics: entertaining story development, colorful map exploration, active side-view battles, character management, and puzzles… It is also translated into multiple languages.

World of Warcraft

The mythical WoW was released in 2004, and it is the mirror that any self-respecting online multiplayer RPG should look at since today it continues to be a reference played by millions of people. It’s so important that we’ve decided to make a small exception for it because it’s not strictly free.

WoW is paid, however, you can play until you reach level 20 free. This may not be much, but it helps you to take the first steps and try it without spending money. And then, if it convinces you, you already go through the box.
