Co-op story games


Recommended Posts

So I’m looking for recommendations for games which can be played through in online co-op. 
Recently we’ve done both of the recent ghost recon games and no mans sky.
We gave far cry 5 a shot but it hasn’t held our interest. 

PS5 games would also be welcome but due to the lack of games there I thought it was best to ask here.

Dead Nation
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
Defense Grid 2
Dragon Quest Builders 2
Dungeon Defenders 2 (free)
Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades
God Eater 3
God Eater Resurrection
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
LittleBigPlanet 3
Mercenary Kings
Monster Hunter World
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4
Path of Exile (MMO)
Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville
Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2
Portal Knights
Remnant: From the Ashes (PS+ March)
Saints Row: The Third
Saints Row IV
Saints Row: Gat out of Hell
Samurai Warriors 4
Sniper Elite 3
Sniper Elite 4
Stardew Valley
Tom Clancy's The Division
Tom Clancy's The Division 2
The Elder Scrolls Online (MMO)
The Escapists 2
The Forest

Zombie Army Trilogy
Zombie Army 4 (PS+ April)


Bit shooter heavy, but there's decent variety in there.

Borderlands 2, Defense Grid 2, Dungeon Defenders 2, PvZ Garden Warfare 2, Saints Row 3 and 4, Sniper Elite 4, Stardew Valley, and Escapists 2 have been favorites.

My spouse and I have a set-up with two big-screen TVs side by side, with each one having a Nintendo Switch and a PS4 (Soon to be PS5's I hope!)


As such, I can certainly recommend a few games that are fun to play online through and through with a partner - I'm sure you've heard of most of them, but I'll list my favorites below:

  • The "Borderlands" series - All of them are amazing, with the "Pre-Sequel" being my least favorite. 
  • Rayman Legends - Fun platformer if that's your thing.
  • Outriders - This one just launched April 1st. It still has a few bugs, but I'm enjoying it.
  • Diablo 3 - Great ARPG, decent story, great replay value, and a classic.
  • FFXIV - If you're into MMORPGs - this game takes the cake. Absolutely amazing story, great graphics, combat system, and much more.
  • Divinity: Original Sin II - Basically the D&D of gaming. The acolades it's recieved speak for itself, but the combat style isn't for everyone.


Hope this helps a bit! There's a lot more out there, but really it depends on what styles/genres you're looking for!

I’d also highly recommend Remnant from the Ashes for co-op. It’s basically like Dark Souls but with guns, and it was free on PS+ recently. My friend and I just finished it yesterday and we absolutely loved it. The entire game and all trophies can be earned with your partner.
