Top 10 Free To Play RPGs of 2024

Let’s See Some Of The Best RPGs For Players On A Budget

Let’s be honest: the “Free-To-Play” label often implies low quality, or at least it can evoke that sentiment. However, as with all things in this world, it’s important not to generalize, especially when it comes to video games. So today, I’ve decided to put together a list of 10 of the most recent Turn-Based RPGs that are completely Free-To-Play and definitely worth your time.

In this list, I didn’t want to go too far back in time, so two important titles are missing that I should at least mention. Games like Battle For Wesnoth, which has been consistently releasing updates and new content since 2003, and Wakfu, which I loved in the past despite disliking all those in-game purchase options. With that said, let’s start with the Top 10 Free-To-Play Modern RPGs list.

Sefirot Shards

Let’s start with Sefirot Shards, a collectible card RPG from Team Game that immerses players in a rich fantasy world teeming with strategic turn-based PvP battles and expansive monster-filled locales. Released in July 2023, the game invites players to build and enhance their squads, level up their heroes, and uncover the secrets of Sefirot through a captivating story campaign and daily quests.

Broken Ranks

Broken Ranks is a free-to-play MMORPG that plunges players into a richly detailed dark fantasy world teeming with both epic adventures and gritty realism. This game offers a compelling, non-linear storyline filled with frequent plot twists and morally complex choices, requiring players to navigate through a war-torn kingdom in a quest to reclaim their lost homeland.

Regular updates and an engaged community, bolstered by annual player gatherings known as TaernCon, further enhance the game’s dynamic experience. Whether aiding a beaten prostitute or uncovering the mysteries of a haunted well, players will find themselves constantly surprised by the depth and complexity of the world of Broken Ranks.

It is one of my favorites on this Free To Play RPGs list. Developed and published by Fluttermind, which is an indie studio created by Dene Carter, one of the co-creators of Fable, Moonring is a retro-inspired traditional roguelike RPG that seamlessly blends dark fantasy elements with classic turn-based roguelike mechanics, all wrapped in a unique neon aesthetic.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The next game I’m introducing to you is a calling card for a series that is quite well-known among fans of the genre. Epic Battle Fantasy 3 is a whimsical turn-based JRPG crafted by Matt Roszak, filled with absurdities and comedic elements that define its charm. The game boasts an array of humorous and often nonsensical features, including useless NPCs, rabid cats, and oversized weapons, all wrapped up in a playful anime style.

Its humor is decidedly childish, with plenty of silly jokes and exaggerated anime aesthetics, including notably large weapons and anime boobs.
