The 33 Best Multiplayer Video Games Of This Generation So Far

#30 Ghost Recon Wildlands
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is the tenth installment in the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise. This time around, the game is set in Bolivia, where the rising power of drug cartels has become a concern to the United States Government.

To deal with this concern, the Government has sent in an elite special operations unit called “the Ghosts” to destroy the cartels in question. Unlike previous installments within the franchise, players will be set in an open world environment to explore along with more freedom in how they accomplish their goals.


#29 Payday 2
  • Developer: Overkill Software
  • Publisher: Sumo Digital (NS)

Overall within Payday 2, players can work together in a cooperative FPS as they go through elaborate heists.

Within these heists, players may have to rob banks, shops and armored cars. In the main hub, players will find various contracts to take on which will showcase the job details and while the game offers AI to help you along the heists, most will find it more entertaining to join up with friends online.

Jobs are meant to be done in a more stealth like matter where players are avoiding the attention of security or police. With that said, if players trip the alarm, the gameplay will become difficult where focus shifts from gathering loot to escaping with your life.


#28 Warframe
  • Developer: Digital Extremes
  • Publisher: Digital Extremes

Developed by Digital Extremes, Warframe is a cooperative free-to-play third person shooter that puts players in teams of four highly sophisticated Tenno commandos to take on a host of enemies throughout the solar system. Players can engage foes in melee and ranged combat through a variety of weapons.

The game is as mentioned earlier a free-to-play title which can give players a similar gameplay experience to something such as the Destiny franchise from developers Bungie. With that said, players don’t have to rely on friends to jump on and play through the campaign as you can enjoy the game alone or with other online gamers.


#27 Killing Floor 2
  • Developer: Tripwire Interactive
  • Publisher: Tripwire Interactive

Tripwire Interactive recently launched Killing Floor 2 into the market and it’s a massively fun FPS to enjoy with some friends though the game can be played as a singleplayer experience. Within Killing Floor 2, players will be forced into fighting off waves off creatures known as Zeds.

If you’re familiar with the older Zombies game mode from the Call of Duty franchise, Killing Floor 2 is pretty similar. Players will have to gather weapons to use against the enemies along with the end boss.


#26 Dying Light
  • Developer: Techland
  • Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

Dying Light was created under Techland, who was also the developers behind Dead Island and as such there are some clear similarities between the two. However, between the two video game titles, Dying Light certainly carries a more mature tone and bleak world.

The video game follows an agent named Kyle Crane who is tasked with infiltrating a quarantine zone city of Harran which has become infested with a virus turning civilians into ruthless zombies. Interestingly enough, there’s a twist on the day and night cycle in Dying Light. During the day, the zombies are more lethargic and easier to deal with, though once the sun set’s they become more aggressive and harder to escape from.

Developers have also tossed in some parkour elements within the game allowing players to easily traverse the city and its obstacles when fleeing the undead hordes. Combat as well has been changed from the melee focus from what we seen within Dead Island to gunplay, giving players an action-adventure experience.
