Best Multiplayer Games

Gaming is one of the best sources of entertainment out there and that’s one of the reasons why the gaming industry has witnessed a quantum leap in the number of new users joining the gaming community each year.

With the passage of time, many new game developers have joined the industry and independent gamers have been busy creating mods of popular games for others to enjoy. The gaming community is bigger than movie buffs and music aficionados put together.

Gamers are spoilt for choice today because there are so many games in the market that it becomes difficult to choose one. Out of all the games, online multiplayer games have become sought-after among tech-obsessed gamers. This is because multiplayer games allow us to socialize with our friends and relatives. In fact, you can also connect with new people and make the online gaming experience more fun and interesting. You can also play with expert gamers. It is a great way to learn from the masters of the game and improve your gaming skills.

So we decided to compile a list of the best multiplayer games to play with anyone you like. Take a look:

Dota 2

1. Dota 2

Genre: MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena)

Cost: The game is available to download for free.

Platform Availability: Windows, OS X and Linux

Developer: Valve Corporation, an American game developer company, is the developer and publisher of Dota 2. The company was founded by Mike Harrington and Gabe Newell, former Microsoft employees. It has developed some of the world’s most popular games of all time, including Counter Strike and Half Life. Dota 2 is the 30th game developed by the company.

The Game

One of the biggest MOBA games of all time, Dota 2 is the sequel to Warcraft 3 mod Defense of Ancients (DotA) created by Blizzard Entertainment. Dota 2 was created by Valve Corporation in 2013 and it became the most-played game on Steam. This free-to-play MOBA game is played by two teams of five players each. You have to play as a team to occupy and protect your base camp on the game map. You will get to control a character called hero, who possesses certain unique powers and abilities.

Dota 2 is one of the most competitive multiplayer games available online. But the game requires players to practice to become successful.

Play: Dota 2 is an extremely simple game. There are two participating teams of 5 players each. Players have to destroy things to collect gold and experience. They battle against each other to destroy a large structure called ‘Ancient,’ which is protected by the opponent’s team. The players get to control one of the 119 characters called heroes. Each hero has certain abilities, powers, strengths and weaknesses. Heroes are divided into two primary roles: core and support.

Players will be a part of one of the two teams: Radiant or Dire. Both the teams are settled in the base camps located at the opposite corners of the map. The fortified bases are connected by three paths called lanes. These lanes are shielded by defensive towers that block the opposing team’s units and help to ambush them. Also, there are creeps, a small group of AI creatures, who travel along the lanes and try to attack the opposing team’s heroes, buildings and creeps on their way. The creeps emerge time and again throughout the game from barracks, two buildings located at the teams’ bases. Players may also encounter ‘neutral creeps,’ who can harm either team and reside in camps on particular locations on the map.

The map in Dota 2 is covered by fog that prevents a team from directly seeing the opposing team’s heroes and creeps. Since there is a day-night cycle, some of the game mechanics and heroes’ abilities may be altered.

Quick Tips

  1. There are over 119 heroes in the game, but it is difficult to work with every hero, especially when you are a beginner. Characters like Invokers, Visage and Plague may seem friendly at first, but they can be difficult to handle. Nevertheless, you can start with someone like Lich who possesses high movement speed and causes high damage to your opponent.
  2. Believe it or not, the fog on the map is your best friend throughout the game. It will help you stay hidden from your enemy for a long period of time. On the other hand, there are ways to see your opponents through the fog and kill them.
  3. Teamwork can take you ahead in the game. So it is important to communicate with your teammates and understand their game plan and strategies as well as present yours. It is also a great way to improve your rank in the game.
  4. If you want to become a skilled DOTA 2 player, you need to understand every aspect of the game, including the map. Learn everything about the map as it will help you guide your hero and plan strategies to avoid any surprise attacks.
League of Legends

2. League of Legends

Genre: MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena)

Cost: There are no costs involved in downloading the game. However, you need to sign up on their official website to download the game.

Platform Availability: Windows and macOS

Developer: League of Legends is developed and published by Riot Games, an American video game developer, publisher and esports organizer. The company was founded back in 2016 by USC graduates. In 2011, the company was acquired by Tencent, a Chinese corporation. Some of the games developed by Riot Games include TeamFight Tactics, League of Legends series, Legends of Runeterra and Valorant.

The Game

Another MOBA game on the list, League of Legends is one of the most popular multiplayer games for PCs. The game was released back in 2009 and there hasn’t been a game that was able to achieve the level of the popularity of LoL. The game has a very vibrant community of players who are loyal to the game even after 11 years of its release. This is because the game features over 120 champions and there are new updates every season, which make fans come back for more. LoL combines real-time strategy with RPG elements. A game usually lasts for 35-45 minutes or for a maximum of one hour.

There is a mobile version of the game called League of Legends: Wild Rift, which was released in 2020.

Play: The game premise is similar to that of Wildcraft 3 mod Defense of Ancients (DotA). Two teams of five players each play against each other. They have to destroy the opposing team’s structure called a nexus, located at the team’s base. Both the nexuses are located on the opposite sides of the map. Also, some unique creatures called minions come out of the nexus and attack the other team’s base. On killing a minion, the player earns a gold item.

Each player gets to control a character called the Champion. There are over 120 champions and new characters get added with every new season. Each champion starts at Level 1 and rises till Level 8. They gain experience and new abilities at every new level.

LoL offers three game modes:

Summoner’s Rift: This is the basic game mode. The objective is to destroy the enemy’s nexus and other structures called turrets.

ARAM: In this mode, the champions are randomly chosen. The map is a single narrow lane of nexuses, turrets and inhibitors.

Teamfight Tactics: Two teams of four players each are pitted against each other. The last one standing is the winner.

Quick Tips

  1. You have to select a champion at the beginning of the game. Select a character that helps maintain a balance in the team. Also, do not forbid any character from the game.
  2. You should have a good understanding of the map to connect with your teammates. There are a few LoL terminologies that you must know and it is possible to learn them using the general structure of the map.
  3. The game has an in-built voice chat feature that is useful to communicate with your teammates. Make sure to use a headset for better communication.
  4. Try playing with a different character every week to improve your understanding of each champion.

Play: Just like previous games, Counter Strike: GO puts two teams against each other: terrorists and counter-terrorists. Whichever team eliminates the opposition team wins the game. The terrorists must either plant a bomb or protect the captives. On the other hand, the counter-terrorists must prevent the terrorists from planting the bomb, deactivate it if planted or rescue the captives. After every round, you will get rewarded with in-game currency on the basis of your performance. You can utilize the in-game currency to buy new weapons like rifles, SMGs (sub-machine guns), pistols, and grenades.

There are nine game modes in Counter Strike:

  1. Competitive: Here, two teams of five players each compete with each other in a 45-minute match
  2. Casual and Deathmatch: They are more useful for playing practice games
  3. Arms Race: It is similar to the ‘Gun Game’ mode in other CS series. Here, players race to upgrade their guns while killing their enemies
  4. Demolition: It’s similar to the ‘Gun Game’ mode except that players can plant and defuse bombs
  5. Wingman: It is a fifteen-round game mode where players have to defuse bombs in pairs
  6. Flying Soutsman: The players have SSG 08 and a knife to defend themselves and play in low gravity
  7. Danger Zone: It’s similar to a battle royale mode where 16 to 18 players play against each other
  8. Weapons Course: This is a practice mode that is available offline. Here, players can learn how to use the weapons and improve their skills

Quick Tips

  2. Practice aiming and shooting your opponents before entering the arena. There are three ways to practice aiming and shooting:
    1. Play the game on community-created maps. You can find the map on Steam Workshop and practice aiming.
    2. Play with bots to practice shooting.
    3. For fast shooting, play the game in the Deathmatch mode.
  3. Headshots are difficult to master. They require precision, timing and accuracy. If you are a beginner, you can use burst fire. In this shooting mode, you will fire a few bullets to keep the gun accurate.
  4. Keep enough ammos in the magazine to kill your enemies anywhere and anytime. However, reloading the gun takes time, which makes you vulnerable. So wait for some time to reload the guns.
Call of Duty: Warzone

4. Call of Duty: Warzone

Genre: Battle Royale/First-person Shooter

Cost: You can download both free and paid versions from the official website.

Platform Availability: Windows, Xbox One and PlayStation 4

Developer: Call of Duty: Warzone has been developed by Infinity Ward, TreyArch and Raven Software. All the three developing companies have been associated with the Call of Duty series. The publisher of the game is Activision, an American game publisher. Some of the top games published by Activision include Madagascar, X-Men, Shrek, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.

The Game

Call of Duty: Warzone is the latest addition to the COD series. Just like its predecessors, it is a first-person shooter battle royale game that was released in March 2020. It is a part of COD: Modern Warfare (2019) and COD: Black Ops Cold War (2020). The game premise remains the same. Players fight for survival on a map that features various locations. They have several options to battle across land, sea and air with the help of various vehicles while finding and equipping themselves with gear and weapons. But instead of 100 players, the game allows 150 players to participate in a battle. The plot is set in Verdansk, a fictional city that resembles the Donetsk city in Eastern Ukraine. Also, a new in-app currency cash is introduced in the game and it can be used at the Buy Stations around Verdansk.

Apart from battling with random players, one can also access a private room, invite their friends and battle only with them. This can be done in both Multiplayer and Battle Royale modes. So download this interesting mobile game and get gaming with your friends or any random players.

Play: Call of Duty: Warzone has two game modes: Battle Royale and Plunder.

Battle Royale: It is similar to the previous battle royale modes of the game. Players travel to their preferred destinations on the map via plane with other participants and team members. They collect the required weapons and protective gear to protect themselves from the enemies. The map is continuously shrinking and players have to play in the safe zone to stay alive. As the map shrinks, the players are forced to play in close proximity to their enemies. The players who survive until the end of the game are the ultimate winner. In Warzone, non-playable areas are contaminated by green gas that affects players’ health and eventually kills them.

Plunder: It is completely different from the Battle Royale mode. The objective of the game is to collect the in-game currency cash and deposit a certain amount during a combat in Verdansk. The players who deposit the biggest amount are the winner of the battle. Even though collective cash is of highest importance, killing enemy players is very advantageous during the game.

Quick Tips

  1. In Warzone, a parachute can be opened and cut in the air multiple times. You can take advantage of this feature and deploy the parachute to reach the battlefield quickly. If you reach the land quickly, you will be able to find better weapons and equipment. Also, it will save you from players who spray bullets right after the parachute drops.
  2. As there are 150 players in the Battle Royale mode, start killing enemies right after landing. Some players might open fire and kill their enemies before landing on the map. You can use this trick too. Simply cut the parachute while landing and use the gun to shoot your enemies. However, don’t forget to deploy the parachute again to avoid falling on the land.
  3. If you get killed in the game, your teammates can get you back in the game by purchasing certain items from the BuyStation. So if you have good resources at your disposal, don’t hesitate to share them with your teammates.
  4. When you fix your gun to a base, you can reduce recoil while shooting your enemies. In fact, you can aim with more accuracy and precision.

Play: Playing rummy on Junglee Rummy is as simple as ABC. But you need to have a clear understanding of the game before joining a cash game. Basically two to six players participate in a game. One or two card decks including Jokers are used. The number of cards distributed to each player is 13. The goal is to arrange these cards in sequences and sets and make a valid declaration.

Sequence: It is a group of three or more successive cards of the same suit. A minimum of two sequences are required to make a valid declaration, at least one of which must be pure. There are two types of sequences:

Pure: A pure sequence does not contain a Joker. Examples: 2-3-4-5; 7-8-9.
Impure: A Joker is used to replace a missing card. Examples: Q-K-5 (WJ); A -3 -PJ.

Set: It is a group of three or more cards of the same rank but different suits. Jokers can also be used in a set. A valid declaration cannot have more than two sets in it.

Example: 1. Without Joker: Q-Q-Q-Q ; 3-3-3
2. With Joker: 6-6-PJ; 8-8 -4

Each player has to pick and discard cards from the closed and open decks. The discarded cards are accumulated in the open deck. The value of each card is as follows:

Cards Points
Face cards (Ks, Qs, Js) and A’s 10 points each
Numbered cards (2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s) Same as the face value
Jokers Zero points each

After arranging your cards, you have to discard the 14th card and click on the “Finish” button. If the declared cards are valid, you are the winner. The winner’s score is zero.

If the declared cards are invalid, there is a penalty of 80 points.

Quick Tips

  1. When cards are dealt, focus on creating a pure sequence first.
  2. Do not discard middle cards as they can be easily used in sequences.
  3. Discard unused high-value cards to avoid the burden of points, in case your opponent declares first.
  4. Jokers should be used wisely. If you have too many Jokers and are still struggling to make a pure sequence, don’t hesitate to discard one or two Jokers.
Rocket League

6. Rocket League

Genre: Sports

Cost: The game is available for free download. You have to sign up on the publisher’s official website to download the game.

Platform Availability: Windows, MacOS, Linux. PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch

The Game

Ever tried playing soccer with cars? Though it is impossible in the real world, you can play a game with a similar concept in the virtual world. Yes, you read that right! This concept was adopted by Psyonix, a game developer company, and it came up with a unique game called Rocket League. Released in 2015, Rocket League allows you to play soccer with rocket-powered cars. You will be playing against other players in a fantasy soccer arena. Since its launch in 2015, the game has improved a lot and added many new features like new modes and DLC options. If you are an arcade game fan, you will surely love this game.

Play: Rocket League has similar gameplay as its predecessor: supersonic acrobatic rocket-powered battle-cars. Using a rocket-powered car, you have to hit the ball (which is larger than the cars) towards the goalpost and score goals. You will have full control of the cars. The game resembles the real-world soccer game where soccer players are replaced by rocket-powered cars. While playing the game, you can jump and hit the ball in the air. You can use a speed boost to cross the field quickly and use the force to hit the ball or destroy the opponent’s car. You can also use the boost to thrust yourself in the flight and hit the ball in the air.

In Rocket League, the match duration is usually 5 minutes. You can play 1v1 up to 4v4 matches and casual and ranked playlists. Also, there is a single-player mode where you can compete with robots.

Quick Tips

  1. Rocket League is an exciting game and after downloading the game, you would want to play it right away. However, before entering a match, there are a few settings and adjustments you need to take care of. The default camera settings are not very useful. The camera is close to the back of the car and offers a very confined field of view. This is not an ideal setting to play the game. Therefore, move the camera back and widen the field of view to improve the line of sight in the game.
  2. There are many movement mechanics in Rocket League that make the game even more interesting. They include turning, boosting, jumping and dodging, and after mastering each movement, you can zip around the field, dribble the ball and even pull off wall shots.

Capture the Flag: In this mode, the opposing teams, i.e. the Red and Blue teams, try to steal each other’s flags, which are represented as an intelligence briefcase. Simultaneously the two teams have to defend their own flags. The first team to capture three flags is the winner.

Payload: In this mode, the Blu team has to push an explosive cart towards the Red team base and the Red team has to prevent them from doing it. Whichever team succeeds in achieving its goal is the winner.

King of the Hill: This game mode is played for a fixed time. The objective is to capture the control point located at the middle of the point.
