1. Fortnite: Battle Royale
Be the last player standing in this all-out first-person shooter pitted against 100 players where only one survives. Scavenge for weapons, first aid kits, and armor to stay alive and construct your own personal defenses to increase your chances of survival. This game takes skill and speed because your fighting other players while the map gets smaller. The best part about Fortnite is that it is free-to-play which is awesome if you get good and make the big bucks.
2. Apex Legends
This is a game that is closely reaching the same amount of competitors to its rival Fortnite. Play Apex Legends with a unique set of characters with special abilities, strengths, and weaknesses to form a co-operative three-person team. These teams of three must work together against 60 other players. Teams are flown over the game’s map in a random direction and land anywhere on the map. Teams look for weapons, ammo, other equipment while fighting to be the last team standing.
3. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
I’m a sucker for first-person shooters and the Counter-Strike series goes way back, but CSGO has still remained popular since its release. CSGO is one of the most popular competitive games in esports today. Two teams duke it out for thirty rounds in a classic deathmatch game or defuse a bomb within 16 games. You and your team will gain unique skill sets the more you game and earn.
4. Defense of the Ancients 2
Dota 2 is a multiplayer game similar to World of Warcraft. Play in a team of five on separate bases that each team will have to defend. These bases are called, “Ancients” and you have to keep them safe while trying to destroy your opponents base to win. Use “Creepers” as your main line of defense while killing off your opponents’ protective monsters and earn gold for every dead Creeper. Join the 1.5 million players and choose from 115 heroes to game with.
5. Rocket League
What happens when you get a soccer fan and car enthusiast together? You get Rocket League. Over 30 million players play this esport and the concept is simple. Players control a rocket-powered car and hit a comically large soccer ball towards the other team’s goal while trying to destroy each other like a demolition derby. This game is addictive and fun for anyone looking to mix sports and racing together.
