The glory of taking down an entire squad of heavily armed enemy soldiers while fleeing grenade blasts and taking cover from snipers… is even better when it’s free. Currently, there are two FPS war games that you can download and play right now, for free, on your PC: Wolfenstein: enemy territory and Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. But the gifts won’t last long.
Wolfenstein: enemy territory
If you grew up playing first-person shooters on your PC in the 90s, you might recognize the name Wolfenstein. It’s an old franchise that has amassed a loyal cult following since they launched their first 3D first-person shooter. Wolfenstein 3-D in 1992.
Wolfenstein: enemy territory is the fifth game in the Wolfenstein line of games. This is a WW2 shooter with multiple maps, unique objectives, and a variety of weapons and gadgets to choose from. The game accommodates a maximum of 32 players at a time, and you can choose to play as an engineer, medic, soldier, field ops, or covert ops.
It was originally released in 2003, but after 19 years of fans keeping the game alive with video game mods to allow for multiplayer games and custom maps, the game’s official developers, Splash Damage and Bethesda Softworks, have launched official servers in USA, Europe, Australia and UK to play the original game online with multiplayer option. The game can be downloaded via Steam here.
Rising Storm 2: Vietnam
Here’s another action-packed multiplayer FPS game, but this time you can choose up to six different armies fighting in Vietnam. This game is only available for free until 11 a.m. ET on Nov. 10 through the Epic Games Store.
Rising Storm 2: Vietnam can be played up to 64 multiplayer matches in over 20 unique maps, with over 50 weapons and four helicopters to choose from. You’ll have to navigate through enemy mines, traps, and tunnels to make sure you and your team make it out alive. Originally released in 2017 for PC, the game is also intended to be authentic as possible.
Both games are only available for Windows.
