We have recently experienced two adventures that have fully committed to online cooperative mode, so, as we did a few years ago to review the party masters locally, we now have the perfect excuse to watch the best cooperative online video games today.
Action, adventures, puzzles, sports. Virtually any genre has the option to play cooperatively with more people via the Internet, and today we’re going to see some of those who best exploit that facet.
- A Way Out
We started, as it could not be otherwise, by a Way Out, the last indie genius of the creators of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. The incorrigible Josef Fares has taken out of the hat an adventure that cannot be played alone, but that gives us many facilities to find someone else. As if it was a game of Nintendo DS it was, so it is only necessary, a copy of the game to play with two people online. Olé!
- Army of TWO
Army of TWO was one of the first video games of the past generation of consoles to exploit the cooperative facet within a shooter. Although he did not have a truly epic moment in his (in itself short) history, he did know how to take advantage of the cooperation between Salem and Rios and to foster different roles of play against the enemy thanks to the aggro meter.
The MOBA genre is one of the most dedicated to the player, so AwesomeNauts is the ideal choice for those looking for something more accessible and addictive. Also, since May 2017 it is free-to-play on Steam.
- Castle Crashers
Castle Crashers remains the beat them up’s current best exponent, and one of the best to take advantage of their cooperative status by splashing it with a small component of pick after each boss to see who gets the kiss.
- Full Metal Furies
Without leaving the beat them up genre, we have the latest Full Metal Furies run by the creators of the highly addictive Rogue Legacy. Its peculiarity is that we can alternate between two characters, each with very different abilities and with certain enemies that can only be damaged with some.
- Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
Gears of War is still one of the largest flagship ships of Xbox 360, and through its ‘Gears of War: Ultimate Edition’ we have been able to see that it is still preserved to the utmost, being another of the tremendous cooperative experiences left by the last generation of consoles. That first separation between Marcus and Dom against the Boomers isn’t easily forgotten.
- Ghost Recon Wildlands
Ghost Recon Wildlands is the typical case of title with specific faults with the AI that you forgive playing with colleagues, and where we have game for a while, besides. Because his world is vast, just like the things to do. Not to forget that from time to time interesting free content, such as the fearsome predator, or then Sam Fisher, is coming in through unique missions.
- Grand Theft Auto V
Although for almost eternal play and that does not stop receiving more and more content, GTA V. O, for the case that places us, the blows of Grand Theft Auto Online, like the explosive final judgment blow, with many hours of guaranteed play.
- Dark Souls III
The Dark Souls saga is immersive to unhealthy levels if we play alone, in part because of that very high demand because of its universe full of dangers at every corner. Hence playing in the company of colleagues helps not to be so tense every second. Or at least in part. Because if we play with more people, we don’t get rid of other players ‘ invasions. Here the best option is to enjoy Dark Souls III, the perfect finale.
- Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
Above and beyond its sequel, Temple of Osiris, we find the proposal of the first Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light far more appropriate, making better use of the cooperative experience. Its sequel only exceeds it in duration and in extending the offer up to four people, but it does not shine equally in the face of the puzzles.
