#20 Friday the 13th: The Game
  • Developer: IllFonic
  • Publisher: Gun Media
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: May 26, 2017

Friday the 13th: The Game can support up to eight players, seven of which are camp counselors while one will take on the role of Jason Voorhees. There are two end goals of the game, the players will work together in order to defeat Jason while the main enemy player will search and slaughter the hidden camp counselors.

Intended for players to use their microphones within the game to communicate, camp counselors are only able to hear each other when they are nearby or through the use of a walkie talkie. This system helps add some suspense especially with Jason capable of moving around the map quickly as well as adding some suspense throughout the match. Unfortunately, the game was hit with some legal issues and it’s really unclear at this point if the game will continue to thrive. As of right now, the original creator behind the character won the battle. While the original development team stepped away from the project, Black Tower Studios stepped up to continue maintenance for the title.

Even if this game doesn’t offer new content in the future, players can still get plenty of enjoyment whether playing with friends or other players around the world. Of course, we’re hoping new content is pushed out for the title and hopefully, the IP owners can work out a mutually beneficial deal with the original creator, Victor Miller.


#19 Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
  • Developer: Crystal Dynamics
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: December 9, 2014

The sequel to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris offers a new action-adventure for a group of friends to go through. This title plays out similar to its predecessor which is a non-linear arcade style action-adventure where Lara Croft, Carter, Isis, and Horus who are set off to defeat an evil deity known as Set.

Played in an isometric camera view, up to four players can join in to go through the narrative campaign which involves combat and puzzle solving. Will you find an in-depth experience like Crystal Dynamics other Tomb Raider titles such as the 2013 reboot Tomb Raider or its follow up Rise of the Tomb Raider? No, but it’s not trying to be that in-depth Lara Croft focused experience. Instead, this is an arcade style experience for gamers and it’s got plenty of positive feedback from both critics and fans alike.


#18 Fortnite
  • Developer: Epic Games
  • Publisher: Epic Games
  • Platforms: PC, NS, PS4, XBO, iOS, Android
  • Release: 2017

Fortnite is developed between Epic Games and People Can Fly where players are tossed into a co-op sandbox world with a goal of surviving waves of undead hordes. In the story, Fortnite unveils a tale in which most of the world’s population was suddenly taken away leaving the remaining few to deal with zombies that have dropped from the skies. Fornite really shines with its multiplayer as players will gather together to build up their fort.

Overall, your goal is to build up a base during the day and prepare for a long battle at night. However, most will find themselves going head-to-head where players attempt to be the last man standing in the popular battle royale mode. Honestly, we really don’t need to go any further than that do we? Fortnite has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to the gameplay and the countless dances. There are a few free battle royale titles out there right now and this is certainly one of the biggest at the moment across all the major current platforms.


#17 A Way Out

A Way Out is an action-adventure journey from Hazelight Studios. This will be the second video game to be directed by Josef Fares who you may be familiar with from his previous title, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

The A Way Out video game is an unique action-adventure title when compared to other selections on this list as it will require two players at all times. Regardless if you play locally or online, the display will be split to showcase both players as you work together to successfully escape your incarceration. Both character stories will be told simultaneously and while one character may be in a cutscene, the other will be able to freely move and execute their tasks making it a game that heavily focuses on teamwork.


#16 Call of Duty Zombies

A number of Call of Duty installments offer a fantastic co-op multiplayer game mode which is often referred to as zombies. Players are often tasked with surviving a wave of zombies and must work together in order to complete tasks or unlock new areas of the map.

Currently, the latest installment within the franchise, Call of Duty: WWII, offers the zombies game mode which can be enjoyed online or through local couch co-op, but the next main installment, Call of Duty: Black Ops IV, is in the works and slated for a release in October of this year. We expect the latest release to be the game to purchase if you wish to enjoy the zombies mode with a friend or two.
