FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best survival game for free?

Here's a few free survival games that may be worth checking out in no order:

1. PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS
2. Unturned
3. The Cycle: Frontier
4. Lost Light
5. Stay Out

Many sites aren't very particular when they recommend "survival" games as they may include battle royales, MOBAs, and games from other genres in the "survival" category.

Since we have separate lists here on MMOBomb for those genres, we'll stick to games where the main gameplay loop is going out into the wild to gather resources and advance your character or your character's house/belongings/equipment in our "survival" game recommendations, but we'll include a recommendation to PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS here since it is a bit more "survival" than typical battle royale titles.

Most survival games aren't very realistic at all since they often involve zombies, monsters, and other supernatural creatures. However, if by "realistic" you mean the graphics and the weaponry used then Will To Live, Stay Out, PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS and Lost Light are worth checking out.
