RPG is my favorite genre. Is it your favorite genre also? Okay, I know many good ones but buying all of them might be costly. So, what are the best free RPG games to play on PC? I have the answer! On this page, you will find the 15 best free to play RPG games, created for PC.
There aren’t many single-player RPGs in this list though. Because most of them are not free. However, you can find many multiplayer RPG games to play for free below. Also as known as MMORPGs.
Here is the list of 15 fun free RPG games for pc:
1. Lost Ark
Right now, the best free RPG game for PC is Lost Ark.
Finally, Korean massive multiplayer role-playing game Lost Ark is released for western nations. It was first released in 2019 for Korean players only. But now, you can get it from platform Steam.
It is a great game with a large variety of locations to explore, many collectibles, and fun to have. Classes are really different and fun too. However, PVP balance is pretty bad. Some classes are really op in terms of player vs player combat. Still, PVE content is highly enjoyable. Especially raids.
2. Path of Exile
Say hello to the improved and expanded version of Diablo. Path of Exile is a hack & slash isometric RPG, pretty similar to Diablo series.
It is set in a dark fantasy world. Specifically created for hard-core gamers.
Best thing about Path of Exile is, it’s not a pay to win game. You can only buy cosmetic, nothing to give you advantage over other players.
A good story driven action RPG Warframe is number 3 on our list. It is a looter shooter game also, where you play as a space ninja. If you like your RPG with action elements, you will love Warframe.
It’s especially fun when you play it with your friends. In truth, Warframe is one of my personal favorite free PC RPG games.
After all, it is one of the most popular free to play games on steam platform.
- Explore a massive system.
- Discover an epic story.
- Master your arsenal.
- Customize endlessly.
- Play solo or with friends.
Oh, I know this game from somewhere. But where exactly? Ah, of course, I remember it from Youtube ads! I guess they don’t mind investing in marketing.
Albion online is a fantasy sandbox MMORPG with countless features. You can explore the vast open world of Albion either solo or with your friends.
No classes, no restrictions. So that you can become anything you want. Multiclass and multi-job option is always great in MMORPGs in my opinion.
5. Crusader Kings II
Here is one of the most interesting one of the free single player RPG games for pc. When its sequel released in 2020, Crusader Kings II became a free-to-play game. Thank you Paradox Interactive!
Crusader Kings is a grand strategy game set in medieval times. You take control of a historical figure such as a count, duke, king, or even an emperor. After that you write your own saga.
All in all, in single-player, best free RPG game on Steam is Crusader Kings II.
There are literally hundreds of things to do in this game. Here are some of the Crusader Kings II features:

9. The Lord of the Rings Online
The Lord of the Rings Online is a MMORPG where you can create your character and write your own legacy. It can be fun to play in 2022 considering the release of Amazon’s new Lord of The Ring series.
It is a captivating game, well, you get to visit renowned locations in middle-earth after all. Such as Shire, Mines of Moria, and Lothlorien. So, what are you waiting for? Immerse yourself in the re-creation of J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendary Middle-earth universe.
The game kinda reminds me of World of Warcraft. Perhaps you’ll feel the same after playing LOTRO.

Looking for a prison RPG? Prison Life is one of the most interesting prison role playing games.
First thing to know, this is not a single-player game. Available game modes are co-op and online PVP.
Play together with tree to eleven other players. Each player in Prison Life takes a random role and will work with his team-mates to win. Prisoners try to escape, and guards work to prevent it. In sum, this is an online Prison Break simulation game.
12. Game of Thrones Winter is Coming
Number twelve is a free to play MMO strategy RPG based on the famous HBO series Game of Thrones. It is licensed by Warner Bros and built by Unity engine. All that being said, the reviews are kind of of mixed… Probably because the game is using pay to win system.
Still, it is better than season 8… Anyway, in Game of Thrones Winter is Coming, you take control of an ambitious Westeros lord. Main purpose is saving people from war and ending the endless dispute between kingdoms of Westeros. All in all, it is a good way to re-live the story of Game of Thrones.
This is a game that released at 2012 December. It is extremely old, an ancient game. However, still fun to play in this day and age.
It didn’t stay dormant either. Now EverQuest has 25 expansions and countless updates.
Build your character through 110 levels, explore +500 zones, collect +50.000 items, and do much more. Either solo or with a group. But I recommend you to play EverQuest with a group because raids are immensely fun.
14. SpellForce 3: Versus Edition
SpellForce 3: Versus Edition is the perfect combination of RPG and Strategy. It is the online only version of regular SpellForce we know.
In this version, you can play skirmish or 1v1 multiplayer. What’s more, skirmish version can be players vs AI or players vs players. It is your choice.
