2 Apex Legends
One more free game for your collection! This time a good Battle Royale, which emerged as a derivative of the Titanfall franchise. Apex focuses on teamwork, with each team having 3 components. You choose a character from among several Legends. And each Legend has unique skills and abilities.
Despite being a Battle Royale, it is quite different from other games of the genre, such as Fortnite. First, because in Apex players can be revived if their teammates do certain actions within a period of time. Also, there are 60 players maximum on the map, divided into 20 teams of 3 players.
3. Counter Strike: Global Offensive
Obviously, CS:GO couldn't be missing from our list. After all, for more than 10 years the game has had its own competitive scenario, being the first eSport. It came about as a modification of Half Life and was an absurd success. Today there are thousands or millions of players online taking control of terrorists and counter-terrorists.
Global Offensive kept everything that the classic versions of Lan Houses had, but with new weapons, improved graphics and new customization options. There's not much to say other than: go play this wonder!

4. Dota 2
Dota 2 needs no introduction. It is one of the most highly regarded and played MOBAs, although it is the most complex, difficult to understand and offers the least dynamism. It is no wonder that today it has dozens of championships spread across the planet.
Just like rival games, Dota 2 makes you choose a hero and head to the battle arenas to help your team defeat the opposing team. There are several missions to complete within each match so that there is a winner, and the fantasy-themed gameplay is great for those who are passionate about the theme.

5. GTA Online
Tired or finished the GTA V solo campaign? Then go to Online mode and have fun creating your avatar and exploring the game's huge map. The amount of content for this multiplayer is absurd, with exclusive and themed events.
With each new update, Rockstar makes this mode more robust and complete. You can create a gang with your friends or be a lone vigilante. Just be careful not to have a bounty on your head while playing. You don't want to be chased by dozens of other players...
6. League of Legends
League of Legends is another successful MOBA on our list, the great competitor of Dota 2. In fact, in general, both games have very similar mechanics. In LoL you are a summoner, who calls a champion who will be your avatar. From there, a fight is fought against an enemy team.
The game has achieved a very high status in the gaming community. It is already an eSport and has more and more international competitions. It's great for anyone who likes the genre. Or if you've always had that curiosity, but never gave it a chance.
