5 online games best enjoyed with friends

Online gaming is a popular pastime for most people these days and a lot of people are enjoying the social interaction with families or friends across the globe! Nothing beats the thrill of working together to defeat that high-level enemy boss or accomplish a difficult level. The animation of some games are so advanced, even for a non-gamer they can be amazing to watch!

On the flip side, some cliques compete against each other in multiplayer modes for bragging rights. Thanks to co-op modes in online games, friends can stay connected in both the virtual world and the real one. Here are some enjoyable online games for solo and multiple players.


 1. Fortnite

Developed by video game company Epic Games, Fortnite is known for its three distinct game versions: the free-to-play “Save the World” and “Battle Royale” games, and the pay-to-play “Creative.” Friends can work together to fight zombies in the “Save the World” campaign” or duke it out online with others in the “Battle Royale” variation.

2. Minecraft

Minecraft lets players “create” their own world using elements they find within the game. The game’s multiplayer function lets players from all around interact with each other on different servers. Minecraft’s nonlinear gameplay lets groups of friends work on creating their own in-game community or compete against each other with player-versus-player modes (if the server allows.)

3. League of Legends

In League of Legends, players can choose a champion they control to defeat the enemy’s forces. But this is no easy feat as there are monsters and structures to vanquish as well as the other team’s chosen heroes. Play with friends on the same team or on opposing sides, making their champion stronger with every victory!

4. Overwatch

Overwatch is an online multiplayer game from Blizzard Entertainment — the developer behind successful titles Starcraft and Warcraft. Players can choose from more than 30 characters with different abilities that are useful in completing in-game missions. Game types that can be played in Overwatch by both solo players and groups include last man standing and capture the flag, guaranteeing hours of fun!

5. Red Dead Redemption 2

A popular title in Australia, Red Dead Redemption 2 lets players assume the roles of Arthur Morgan, John Marston, and the rest of the Van Der Linde gang. The online multiplayer mode lets groups of friends explore the wide expanse of the American West whilst fulfilling different objectives.
