AssaultCube is a free first person shooter game for Windows with nice graphics and realistic environments. If you love playing Counter-Strike, then you will definitely like this one too. This game is pretty simple with two teams on a battlefield, and all you have to do is carry on and hunt down all the enemies. One team is “RVSF” which is a group of armed forces and another team is “CLA” which is a terrorist group. There are 8 different weapons available such as Swiss Tech Combat Blade DR-88, MTP-57 Assault Rifle, etc. for both the teams to use and kill enemies.
While playing the game, you can pick up many items floating on the maps such as health pack, ammo box, kevlar armor, etc. The best part is that it comes with more than 50+ game maps for you to play. It offers 8 single player game modes and 14 multiplayer game modes. Similar to the other first person shooter games, this one also lets you play in multiplayer mode. In multiplayer mode, you can play the game on low latency and without lagging.
