25 Best PS4 Multiplayer Games (Updated 2023)
These days, it would seem that you would only be able to communicate with a friend face-to-face if you wanted to. You could call them on the phone or meet up in person. Alternatively, you can play video games together using online connections instead of having to gather around a physical game console. Even though we sometimes feel like hanging out with people, we have compiled a list of the Best PS4 Multiplayer Games for when you do actually want to spend time with your friends.
25. Destiny 2
Destiny 2 is a game that you won’t be able to enjoy without friends. It’s set in the future where a huge sphere called “The Traveler” has been colonized by humans and hired as Guardians. These unkillable soldiers are constantly resurrected to fight off their enemies. The game features tons of PvE content, including playing it alone or with friends, as well as expansive open worlds for exploration and raids for joining other players. Additionally, there are competitive PvP matches available that test your shooting skills against others.
24. Star Wars Battlefront II
Meanwhile, in a far-off galaxy…
While the aesthetics of the game are top-notch, there is nothing wrong with it. There are many characters and vehicles taken directly from movies that players never get tired of seeing. You can play through the story mode or try out various cooperative missions. The major online modes include intense infantry combat, frantic hero duels, and Starfighter Assault which lets you fight in space.
23. ARK: Survival Evolved
We may have failed to explore the Earth or develop spaceflight, but we’ve arrived just in time for one of the most exciting new developments in video games: massive, open-world titles. This beautiful environment is home to mythical creatures like phoenixes, griffins, and wyverns alongside prehistoric plants and animals. You’ll need your intelligence as well as your strength to survive you’re merely a species competing with others at lower levels of the food chain. New patches are released frequently since 2017, so there’s never been a better time to get started playing ARK!
22. NBA 2K22
NBA 2K22 is one of the most popular basketball games on the market. It has high-quality visuals, gameplay that is close to being authentic, and a price tag that is well worth it. For those who are fans of the sport, or have had a few drinks, it can be hard to believe that this game isn’t actually based on reality. However, despite its flaws (which are mostly due to limitations in technology), NBA 2K22 remains one of the best basketball sims available.
21. Fall Guys
The easiest battle royale game is Fall Guys. It’s great fun, and the adorable creatures make it addictive. Mediatonic created a game that is easy to play thanks to the platforming, quick rounds, and luck – all of which add up to an excellent experience.
20. Red Dead Redemption
Multiplayer for Red Dead Redemption 2 is surprisingly fun if you can locate players who are not prone to sneaking up on you and tying ropes around your necks. Rockstar was able to successfully transform the game’s single-player world into a multiplayer adventure that is just as enjoyable.
19. Risk of Rain 2
In this action-packed game, you and your team of allies fight against waves of enemies while trying to collect power-ups. But the harder it gets, the longer you stay on a level. The challenge is balancing greediness with skill as mobs made up of some of your close friends are thrown at you. The graphics are incredibly vivid and eye-catching, making it hard not to return for more playtime.
18. Play Grand Theft Auto V
The multiplayer features of Grand Theft Auto V extended well beyond just driving people over. Idle server games now allow you to engage in a variety of other tasks and even climb adventuring in the sky! Craft and fly planes. Crack down on your enemy. Conduct suicide bombing attacks. But when you are finished you’ve covered the area in cult-like graffiti!
17. Racing Crash Team: Nitro-Fueled
Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled is a compilation of all the previous CTR games with additional material and fan service to make you cry. It’s the only kart racing game worth its weight, except for Mario Kart. We love it so much that Radical Entertainment was even willing to reveal their secret passion project–a new Crash game set in the world of Bandicoot! Additionally, I’m sure you’re looking for anything that can get your Bandicoot mood going because Crash 4 is coming soon.
I’ll pretend that I don’t love playing this baby game with my brother, and will instead insist it is nothing more than a trivial diversion. In reality, I have a lot of fun engaging in crossover battles and enjoying the captivating gameplay. If you’d like to meet up on the battle bus, that’s fine too.
15. Diablo III
Diablo is an important game for those who want to play something other than shooters. It has been released annually since 1997, and it continues to be a popular choice among the gaming community due to its class-based gameplay and loot system. Additionally, Diablo 4 is set to release soon which means that you should start organizing your inventory in preparation. There’s a reason this title has withstood the test of time – it provides value beyond what most shooter games can offer.
14. Overcooked! + Overcooked! 2
Although I don’t have any cooking experience, Overcooked! does a great job of describing what it’s like.
You and a friend will be working in a kitchen together while taking orders. This simulation game can leave you exhausted after an hour due to the high level of activity it requires. First, have something to eat before playing.
13. Shadowbringers: Final Fantasy XIV
Back in high school, I remember being impressed by the fact that you could create your own character and play with them in RuneScape. Well now, thanks to Final Fantasy XIV’s online version, you can do just that! FF14 is one of the most expansive MMOs out there—it offers hours upon hours of content for players. It’s a great game and an incredibly immersive world to explore.
12. Monster Hunter World
Monster hunting is an exciting and action-packed game that involves fighting against large, free-spirited monsters. There are a lot of great single-player content and multiplayer modes available which make the experience unique for each player. For example, You can dress up as Alloy from Horizon Zero Dawn or Geralt from The Witcher in crossover appearances in Street Fighter, Mega Man, and Final Fantasy games on PS4.
11. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
Although it has fallen out of favor, Modern Warfare and Warzone have allowed COD to recover its crown, with nearly free-to-play Warzone being particularly attractive to many players. Nevertheless, the competitive community still remains intense, and competitive players tend to gravitate towards free-to-play Modern Warfare. It is a pleasant way to be destroyed in COD once more. It feels comfortable to be destroyed in COD once more. I am looking forward to the recently teased Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War. However, it seems like the Russian zombie-themed game will play a significant role in the upcoming COD battle.
Overwatch is one of the most popular and well-loved video games on this list. It’s a first-person shooter that is both entertaining and difficult to master, making it unsuitable for professional gamers. Esquire magazine isn’t up there competing against pro players in an arena setting any time soon.
9. Rainbow Six Siege by Tom Clancy
I am never going to gain XP in this game again if I keep shooting my team. They’re always telling me, but as a few good friends constantly remind me, I have poor trigger discipline. Rainbow Six Siege is the new game that’s been out for what feels like forever, and it will continue to be popular because of its different mode compared to shooters’ typical death match. The game differs from traditional shooter modes by having teams of five players complete predetermined objectives. In order to keep things interesting for players, Rainbow Six consistently releases new operatives and content updates.
8. The Elder Scrolls Online
Skyrim is a popular MMORPG that’s been around for many years. While it isn’t quite the same as an MMO anymore, it’s still a great game set in the same world. The Elder Scrolls Online captures all of the fun and excitement we experienced back in the early 2000s, only it’s much better now due to its polished design. MMORPGs are no longer what they used to be – thank goodness!
7. Rocket League
There is no game in this list that is stranger, more nerve-wracking, or more addictive than Rocket League. This popular combination of soccer and automobiles offers players a unique experience not found in any other game. For those unfamiliar with it, Rocket League consists of two teams of five players each competing to score goals by using their cars to hit balls into the opposing team’s goal. The challenge for LilJimmy232 was only compounded because he had to listen to three hours worth of insults from my friend due to his loss.
6. Shovel Knight
Shovel Knight is the perfect replacement for all those Super Nintendo platformers you loved playing with friends. Now that it’s available to everyone, Shovel Knight is aimed squarely at retro gaming enthusiasts who love games that offer cooperative play. The game adjusts its difficulty levels based on your partner’s skill level, ensuring a satisfying experience no matter how much they challenge you. There are so many heartwarming and imaginative elements throughout Shovel Knight that remembering the first time you traveled together would be unforgettable.
5. Borderlands 3
Borderlands is a popular action role-playing game that was released in 2009. It shares many similarities to the upcoming title Destiny but features an absurd plot and a convenient multiplayer system. Borderlands 3 builds on these foundations and expands upon them further, providing players with an enjoyable experience that is perfect for those who enjoy class-based shooters.
4. Fourth Streets of Rage
Streets of Rage 4, a retro arcade game with online multiplayer, provides an updated experience over its predecessors. In my opinion, it’s the perfect successor to the quarter-eater ambiance found in earlier entries in the series. So there you have it–all you need to know is that I’m done now.
Minecraft is all about mining and creating, so it would seem straightforward. But the game has a hidden depth that lies beyond its simple facade. In creative modes you can build anything without restrictions or in survival mode where resources are scarce, Minecraft becomes an essential tool for both teaching and learning. I imagine that this versatility makes Minecraft well-suited for hosting graduation parties as well as constructing replicas of Death Stars.
2. FIFA 22
Hey, here is an implant that you should not be doing now: holding a soccer ball by the dirty and in-game soccer ball. FIFA 2022 is a soccer simulation in which the player redeems his friends from the game that warns them to not do a certain action.
1. Marvel’s Avengers
If you’re familiar with the video game Avengers, then you know how much fun it is to play as a superhero. Yes, there are some problems with this title–everyone seems happy to point them out. This action-packed game features thrilling squad-based fights with many of your favorite heroes from Marvel Comics. Plus, if you have a PlayStation console attached to your computer, Spider-Man himself can be played in the game. Even more, surprises may be in store for fans of Marvel’s Avengers saga!
