Runes of Magic

You can’t play Minecraft forever you know! If you’re looking for something new to play, there are loads of other PC games out there. Best of all, there are lots and lots of games that are free to play. We at BoxMash have picked a few of our favourites. Try a few… try them all!

World of Tanks

World of Tanks is a lot of fun and hugely popular. You get to drive over 240 World War II tanks and jump into massive battles. There’s vehicles from lots of the countries that fought in World War II, like Britain, America, Russia, Germany and France, so there’s plenty to keep you busy. Best of all it’s free – just sign up to try it out here.

World of Warplanes

If you’d rather try your luck in the sky then you should try World of Warplanes instead. It’s made by the same people as World of Tanks, but rather than being stuck on the ground you get to be a pilot flying over 200 different types of aircraft, testing your air combat skills in dogfights. It’s amazing good fun, and you can try it for free here.

Rise of Mythos

If you enjoy trading card games like Yu-Gi-Oh! or Pokémon then there’s no shortage of free PC games to try. Sign up and try fantasy game Rise of Mythos. It’s a little bit like Lord of the Rings with Elves, Goblins, and Humans, and you play as one of several different character classes like a hunter, a mage, or a warrior. You’ll have to protect the city of Silver Heron Ridge from enemies using your collection of cards.

There’s a great story to follow, and when you’re finished there you can fight against other players in the Challenge Hall! Why not give it a try right now?

Wizard 101

If you’ve been waiting for your Hogwarts invitation letter but no owls have turned up yet, perhaps you should try out Wizard101. You play as a student of the Spiral, a school for wizards and witches. There’s lots of places to explore and worlds to travel too, and of course a big, bad evil to defeat too! You’ll also learn lots of magic spells, which you collect as cards. The more spells you have, the better your card deck, and the more awesome abilities you can use in battle!

The Lord of the Rings Online

If The Hobbit is your favorite film at the moment, how about trying the Lord of the Rings Online? It’s a massive adventure game full of thousands of players, spanning from The Shire all the way to Gondor and beyond. The game is free and will keep you busy for hundreds of hours with it’s many many quests and dungeons to explore.


If you fancy the big multiplayer adventure but Lord of the Rings Online isn’t for you, then how about Aion? You can create your own character from any race or class you like, and head out on an adventure of a life time. And because it’s a MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) game, you can team up with you friends. Every journey is more fun with your mates.

Runes of Magic

Or could try Runes of Magic. It has a really good tutorial to help you get started and introduce you to it’s massive world. If you think playing a massive multiplayer game will be a bit difficult, perhaps Rune of Magic is the best place for you to start. It’s got all the great fantasy stuff from other MMOs, and of course your friends can still play with you too.

Remember, every one of these games are free to play, so you don’t need to buy anything to have any fun at all! Just get your mates to download them too, and you can be exploring a new world of fighting off enemies together in no time.
