Entertainment At Home (LockDown)

Untitled (1)

 

This past little while has been difficult for many people healthy and chronically ill. Now the next little while is going to be a little bit more tough at home with trying to find things to do to keep you and your family entertained! We won’t talk about the shopping item crisis or anything negatively related to why we have to stay home as those who have to know why.

I was thinking earlier today it would be great to share some great online games you and most teens can play during the lockdown period. These are some games I love (some that are popular) and also many that are free to play through Xbox One, PS4, PC/Laptop and on the Nintendo Switch. I will also share some links on where you can get games straight to download through codes instead of having to wait however long for the game to arrive in the post!

  1. RuneScape – this is a great game to play on your computer or laptop! It does have a monthly fee of £6.99 but with great rewards. You can do a wide variety of things such as quests, scrolls, gaining XP in many skills and the game itself is beautiful. To view a beginners guide, you can watch ProtoxxGaming on youtube.
  2. League of Legends – this game is free to download on your computer, laptop or on your mobile (mobile is Team Fight Tactics only.) This is a PVP game with loads of champions to play! To start, you go through the training and then slowly unlock more champions. To watch some League of Legends game play, you can visit GrossGore who plays this ALOT or you can visit the Twitch website.
  3. Animal Crossing – this game can be played on various nintendo devices and on your mobile, however the mobile app is a slightly different version. You can get this on CDkeys.com for £8 less than it is on sale at anywhere else and the bonus is you don’t have to wait for the game to arrive in the post! Simply purchase through the website and it will send you a download code through to your email address!
  4. World of Warcraft – for this game, it works the same as RuneScape in how you pay monthly to access the game and it’s rewards. The download is free.
  5. Cards Against Humanity (online addition) – everyone has heard of this game and it started out as a board game, however now you can play it online with your friends or family for free by clicking here.
  6. Apex Legends – this is a multiplatform game that can be downloaded for free on Xbox One, PS4 and on you computer/laptop (through Origin.)
  7. Fortnite (similar to the game above) – another game that is free to download on multiple gaming devices.
  8. Neverwinter – again another free game to download on multi game devices which is very much like a mixture between Diablo and Skyrim and is great!
  9. SMITE – this game is also free on multi gaming platforms and I suppose you could say it is like a form of a League of Legends game but much more child friendly.

To view all free games to download for your gaming device, click each one below:

Hoping that one or some of these games are of use for your kids, teens or yourself!
