The 30 Best Online Games You Can Play Right Now With Your Friends (or Enemies)



The best online games give you space to experience new worlds, new challenges and extremely rare loot, and do it all with friends. Meet an old friend for some virtual exploration even when you are away from each other, or make new friends and start your own clan without having to walk out your door. Thanks to better internet speeds and the rise of live service games, there are more multiplayer games than ever before, but - whisper it - not all of them are great. Fortunately, we've put together a countdown to the 30 best online games you can play right now. 

Here is the method we chose: First, we decided to include only real online games, which means that online communication is a major feature. This excludes some single games with great multiplayer modes, such as Uncharted 4. We also don't include the best MMORPGs because this is a very specific genre that deserves its own list. Other than these two strict regulations, everything else from shooting games to story games was eligible for a slot in the top 30 online games. Keep reading to see what games I made, then check out our list of the best co-op games for more fun online, but working together!

30. Dead by Daylight

Interactive behavior format(s): PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS 

Back when asymmetric multiplayer games were the rage (remember Evolve?), a clever developer wondered: What if we recreated classic slash movies, with a team of defenseless teens and one unstoppable killer? The result is Dead by Daylight, which is basically Friday the 13th: The Game (if, you know, this wasn't really her own game either). But where Friday the 13th focuses solely on Jason Voorhees, Dead by Daylight has a diverse cast of killers, from original creations to familiar foes like Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, and the Jigsaw Killer. Not for the faint of heart, this one. 

29. PUBG

 PUBG Company Format(s): PC, Xbox One, PS4, iOS, Android

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, or PUBG for short, helped unleash the frenzy of battle royale, spreading some basic rules like shrinking safe zone, big map, and setting up 100 players. While other battle royale games have morphed into a cartoonish aesthetic, PUBG is still grounded in realism (or at least as realistic as 100 people dying with exploding cars and sometimes shaky physics). Expect a bullet to fall and kill a single shot. 

28. Tetris 99

Arika Format(s): Nintendo Switch

What in the name of all those mosaics is the free-to-play Tetris game on this list? You might well ask - but if you did, you surely haven't played Tetris 99, one of the most intense and exciting multiplayer games of recent years. The concept is genius: it's basically Tetris Battle Royale, and every two lines you clear is sent to one of your 99 competitors, either randomly, those closest to death, players currently attacking you or those closest to victory. It's a completely original game that debuted nearly 40 years ago, and it's free if you buy a Nintendo Online card (which you should definitely do, if you only play the other Switch games on this list).

27. Red Dead Online

Rockstar game format(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a masterpiece. The multiplayer segment, Red Dead Online, hasn't captured quite the same audience as its equivalent Grand Theft Auto 5 (see #18), but it's still a fun time. You can do everything you can in the extended single-player campaign, like hunting, stopping buses, and getting a haircut at the back of the salon, but the multiplayer brings with it unique activities. There is a full story to play through, pop-up events, races, and team-based competitive encounters. Gather some friends and clicker in. 

26. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Developer: Valve, Hidden Path Entertainment

Format (s): PC، Xbox One، Xbox 360، PS3

There's a reason Counter-Strike has been around for as long as it has been. A fast-paced, highly lethal depiction of modern military commitments, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (or CS: GO just for short) is all about being fast in the draw and a faster thinker. Tactics and teamwork win the day here, as you begin eliminating other players or engaging in more goal-focused modes such as disarming a bomb.

25. Overcooked 2


Ghost Town Games Format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

How much do you value your friends? This is the question you should ask yourself before launching Overcooked 2, because this game will fully test the limits of your camaraderie. As in the first game, you and many other players take on the role of chef in some of the least acceptable kitchens ever. Think you can cook on an iceberg? How about while speeding on the highway? You will need to be quick, accurate, and coordinated with your teammates to delight your customers, so try not to lose your mind.

24. Diablo 3


Blizzard Format(s): PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch

Many games, from Torchlight to Path of Exile, owe their existence to the Diablo series, and the hack-and-slash grandfather still survives. Diablo 3 is eight years old, but its intense and exhilarating combat still feels as responsive as anything else we've played. It's addictive in the single player, but even better when you play in a group of online adventurers with complementary skills. Each player gets their own loot quota so you don't have to fight for Legendary items, but you can share everything you pick up among your friends, making it easier than ever to create compositions to clear the screen. Its seven chapters offer brand new mechanics to master, and it's worth playing through the campaign with each one of them. Just make sure you hit the difficulty of using it solo, because you and your crew will soon rip demons at a frightening pace.

23. Phasmaphobia


Action game format(s) : PC

There are many horror games out there, but very few of them can really feel intimidating when playing with others online. Phasmophobia deals with this type of literature simply: a group of up to four people heads to homes, schools, and even prison to investigate paranormal activities. Your only goal is to monitor and document what is happening, following a checklist of tasks that reward you with more money while using a variety of tools to get the job done.

But she is incredibly tense. Ghosts can be scary when you can see them as if they are hiding in plain sight, flashing with light switches, throwing objects in the air, or even sneaking up on you to leave you off duty for the rest of the session. This terrifying experience has the potential to sneak up on you even after you think you've seen it all, and the fact that it's still in Early Access means it's only going to get better from now on.

22. Portal 2


LED format(s): PC

If Portal is the perfect puzzle game, Portal 2 is the perfect, delicious meal. In online co-op, you and your friend solve mind-boggling puzzles using portals as you laugh along to a narrative from GLaDOS, the eternal portal's friend. Having four Gates between you means Valve had to make the challenges harder than usual, and trust us, they're tough. You'll really have to brainstorm and coordinate the timing as you hit the keys, jump off the edges, and bounce off the brightly colored gel strips. The game is divided into themed areas, each of which flips the formula in a new way. It is a marvel of co-op game, and it works perfectly online

21. Risk of Rain 2


Hopoo game format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch

You may have skipped the first Risk of Rain when it came out back in 2013, but the sequel is bigger and brighter, while retaining what made the original so special, in quite the literal way. The change from a 2D perspective to a full 3D perspective was surprising, but it perfectly translates to the frantic movement of an extremely bizarre rogolike. Up to four players (or just solo) can team up together to defeat wave after wave of enemies by choosing from an array of unique characters, each with their own weapons and abilities. As you progress through the levels you earn coin to exchange items and this is where the magic of Rain Hazard 2 lies.

If you've ever wondered what it feels like to be a hybrid between a plant and a robot that can crawl on the ground with its roots while releasing seeds simultaneously, or rather a standard commando that becomes progressively faster and more agile with the right items, then this is the game for you. With its procedurally generated nature and "another game" sharing nature, it's a must-have for long co-op nights with friends online.

20. League of Legends


Riot Games Format(s): PC

 At one time the most popular game in the world, League of Legends helped spark the MOBA craze, and it continued to excel by constantly testing and experimenting with new ideas. Although there is the standard 5v5, three-track map, there is also a 3v3 two-track map, a single-track map where players are randomly assigned heroes, and special time-limited events that elicit surprises. The wide range of characters (more than 130!) means that you will definitely find a character to suit your playing style. And if you get tired of one, just switch to the other. 

19. Spellbreak


Digital Extremes format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch (November 20)

Warframe started as a relatively simple online hack game, but has since transformed into an action-packed adventure that stretches across the galaxy with an embarrassment of riches for players to dig into, all for free. You play as Tenno - a space ninja magician, or halfway between Guyver and Jedi, if you prefer - and your mission is to rid the universe of an oppressive regime of villains. While this doesn't sound original, it's the smooth, buttery combat, fluid movement, and exciting visual flourishes that help Warframe stand out. Developer Digital Extremes is also good at communicating with his fans, which has resulted in a supportive player base. You must become one of them. 

18. GTA Online


Rockstar game format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

 It's technically set in GTA 5 rather than the game itself, but GTA Online deserves to be recognized as its own monster. It is an illegal playground for you to live the fantasy life of a super criminal. In real life, you may be an accountant, a teacher, a fast-food worker or a mediocre doctor, but GTA Online allows you to complete serious thefts, illegal operations, and expensive (and illegal) luxuries. All the things that could get you to prison in the real world, basically.  

17. Path of Exile

Developed by: Grinding Gear Games

Format (s): PC ، PS4 ، Xbox One

If you're looking for an alternative to Diablo 3 or the Torchlight series, or better yet, you're looking for a massive new experience that's also free, Path of Exile is the game for you. It's rare to see ARPGs, especially live-action ones, that last for many years, and developer Grinding Gear Games has been feeding its online ecosystem with several updates since its launch.

With the choice of playing as standard and taking your time with the game, or diving into seasonal updates called Leagues for challenges, there's no shortage of variety. We recommend researching builds beforehand if you want a more serious gaming experience, but if not, just jumping in and participating in events with people online will automatically put you on the right track.

16. Forza Horizon 4


Playground games format(s): PC, Xbox One

If we had to recommend one racing game for you to play right now, it's Forza Horizon 4. Colorful and luxurious, it can be played offline, but it's basically a perpetual online racer, and you'll see other players scurry around the map pretty quickly. - Ab Motors. The racing year is divided into seasons, each of which influences circuit conditions and shows the landscape of the British countryside in a stunning new light. We recommend getting the first year as quickly as possible, because after that the gameplay really opens up online, with races and challenges scattered over the map. You can join impromptu caravanserais with friends or strangers, and half the fun is slipping around tight corners outside of the events. 

15. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate


Nintendo Format(s): Nintendo Switch

Play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate like the greatest songs in a legendary series. It takes old levels and characters and makes them feel fresh again, with fast animations and visuals that look better than ever. Online, you can create a private room with your friends and settle decade-long debates about who is the best Smash player, or test your skills against strangers, build your own Global Smash Power (name inferno) and defeat all comers. It's the most polished version of Smash you can play, and with over 70 characters to choose from, there's a champion for every playstyle.

14. Divinity: Original Sin 2 


Capcom format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is probably the best RPG ever, and it's even better with friends. You get Larian's great writing and imaginative storytelling on top of an intuitive tactical combat system. Battles depend on rotation, and coordination is critical. By combining abilities, weapons, spells, and items, you can outsmart your opponent and create battle combos. Interesting multi-part missions hide behind every door and every corner, and the world of Rivellon is full of unforgettable characters. 

13. Call of Duty: Warzone


Infinity Ward Format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was a solid if not amazing entry into the series, but its popularity has been eroded by the newer Call of Duty: Warzone, which is a standalone battle royale mode. It's not a comprehensive reinvention of the genre, but it's the most original and ambitious spin on the well-invented formula to date. Instead of 100 players, there are 150 players. Instead of just focusing on killing players for loot, you can complete goal-based contracts scattered around the map, which save you cash to spend on better gear. And in our favorite feature, your first death sends you to the Gulag, where you can win a 1v1 gun battle to parachute down to the ground. Warzone has a slower, more stealthy solo mode as well as a three-player team mode, both of which are great. 

12. Rocket League


Psyonix Format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

No one expected how big a Rocket League game would be — after all, RC cars playing soccer (soccer, if you insist) aren't the most attractive problem. But as soon as you grab the console and launch yourself into the air at a giant ball, while other toy cars are spinning around, you'll immediately realize why so many fans are obsessed. Matches are fast and rewards are generously distributed, making it easy to waste hours lying to yourself: "Only one match." 

11. Animal Crossing: New Horizons


Nintendo Format(s): Nintendo Switch

For many players, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has kept hope and joy alive during the coronavirus pandemic. It is a useful and charming life simulation about catching butterflies, trading turnips and decorating your home. You can play everything solo, but you will lose. You can visit Friends' Islands to browse their shops, fish in their ponds, mingle with their visitors, and walk around a new island to see how your friends laid out their endlessly relaxing new town. Make sure to call the other players your "close friends" if you want them to get the most out of your island.

10. Final Fantasy 14


Square Enix format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

MMO games haven't gone anywhere - they've expanded narratively in their own way, increasing intensity and complexity without compromising the social aspects one would expect from the genre. Final Fantasy 14 is a testament to this, as it distinguishes itself as one of the most exciting titles in the series, and for good reason. The expansions focused not only on adding more content as usual, but also on completely new events and areas to explore.

If you've been waiting for an opportunity to jump into it, this might be the perfect time. The free trial includes not only the basic experience, called A Realm Reborn (which has been reworked to be more welcoming to new players), but also the first expansion, Heavensward. There are no time restrictions and you won't have to sign up for even more than dozens of hours, with jobs upgrading up to level 60 as well, which act as specialized character classes that impact your playing styles in a big way.

9. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe


Nintendo Format(s): Nintendo Switch

Is it the best Mario Kart ever? Anyone who grew up might not think of Mario Kart 64, but Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, an enhanced version of the Wii U racing game, is definitely the best Mario Kart game online so far. By connecting with up to 11 friends or random people online, you can play Grand Prix, VS Race and Battle modes over WiFi. If you thought matching with the CPU was exciting, wait until you beat a real opponent in first place (and if you thought losing to AI racers was heartbreaking, wait until you got a blue bombardment just before the finish line and watch the wagon drift pass that player controlled).

8. Fall Guys


Mediatonic Format: PC, PS4

It's impossible to talk about online games without mentioning Fall Guys, one of the most creative and welcoming battle royale experiences. Instead of focusing on combat or hitting specific goals, developer Mediatonic threw all of that away and instead opted for a more breezy route. Dozens of players are still competing with each other, sure, but they do so on obstacle courses that can be as funny as they are frustrating, but aren't tiring.

Fall Guys work best when you meet your friends in a group, but they also get involved when you're alone, slowly learning the obstacle courses and trying to get to first place to grab that elusive crown. With an aesthetic curve that is friendly and quick to learn, it is one of those games that we can recommend to anyone.

7. Fortnite


Epic Games format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android

fortnite. He is. Everywhere. It's all. Everyone has heard of it. For good reason, because it's really, really fun. Yes, it's a battle royale game with all the trimmings: 100 players fall on a large map, a constantly shrinking safe zone, and 1 player is left standing. But Fortnite is also a craft game, where not only the best players are direct shooters, but those who can build huge structures and forts with just a few clicks of a button. Its seasonal structure adds new and exciting mechanics every few months, giving players an added incentive to come back and check things out. It is also very accessible, free to play and available on almost every device. Well, Fortnite is all over the place, including this list. 

6. Monster Hunter World


Capcom format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

Grind? Yeah. confusing? Absolutely. But once you hit your step, Monster Hunter World is one of the most rewarding action games out there, and playing with friends makes finding and crafting the best equipment more satisfying. Fighting is the star here. You track monsters through a dense and wonderful world, before facing them in fights to the death. Enemies are smart and agile and react realistically to your actions, but if you coordinate as a team, you will take down even the most ferocious monsters. The constant sense of progress, and the influx of new elements, prevents the grind from becoming overwhelming.

5. Minecraft

Developer: Mojang, Microsoft Studios

Format (s): PC، PS4، Xbox One، Nintendo Switch، iOS، Android

All that dying and killing - wouldn't it be nice to have a game that is all about being constructive and creative while fostering a sense of community and collaboration? Well, that's exactly what Minecraft is. Don't let the simple graphics fool you: Minecraft is a complex beast in a survival game where you'll need to harvest resources to tame the wilderness and create a home. Or, just enter the free creation mode and create whatever you can imagine; Gamers have already made everything from King's Landing to working PCs. And yes, you can do all this on your own, but where's the fun in that? 

4. Apex Legends


Respawn Entertainment Format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

Apex Legends was a launch bomb; An unspoken feeling changed the way we think about the Battle of Kings. Teams of three can communicate seamlessly without a headset, using a "ping" system to identify items, flag enemies, and suggest regrouping locations. It still looks like the ultimate co-op battle royale, with class abilities that combine with lethal effect - hide a Bloodhound smoke bomb to hide your enemy's view while the Bloodhound tracks them through the fog, for example. If you haven't played it in a while, it's time to jump back in and see how the maps have changed.

3. Sea of Thieves

Developer: Rare Formats

: PC ، Xbox One

Sail the seven seas in the best pirate game. Sea of ​​Thieves draws you and your friends as a crew of scallywags, and the open hull leaves you free to roam the ocean. You may perform faction missions and transport goods between ports. You may collect treasure maps and go looking for loot. You might be walking around on the deck, each one playing a great tune on one of the many instruments. Or, if you're feeling brave, you can load up your cannons, climb up the mast, and use your periscope to scavenge for other crews to sink. Just make sure you don't run into the Kraken. These things will tear your boat to shreds.

2. Among Us


InnerSloth LLC format(s): PC, Switch, Xbox One, Android, iOS

If Zoom calls are starting to seem old to you, Binna might be the perfect alternative to catching up with friends and family. That is, if the scenario of up to 10 people trapped in the same airship with one or more hidden crooks does not frighten anyone. This concept seems fairly simple on paper, but it takes a lot of skill to either survive, or be a big liar when it comes to determining who the culprit might be.

Developer InnerSloth LLC was planning to come up with a completely new sequel, but instead it will focus on the same version as ever, adding new maps, cosmetics, and improving what makes Between Us one of the most surprising titles in 2020, which will surely follow in the coming years. Also.

1. Destiny 2


Bungie Format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

Bungie's not-an-an-MMO's Destiny 2 has faced some snags over the years, but since the 2018 Destiny 2: Forsaken expansion, things have been improving, and 2019's generous free offering has introduced Destiny 2: New Light into a host of new players. There is a lot to do with friends in Destiny 2: farming for the next piece of cool equipment; Mix it in the crucible for some PvP; Or learn the ins and outs of the latest Uber-Challenge Raid game. At the heart of all of this is Bungie's great use of firearms, which just feels like that. the curse. Satisfying.
