Playing online in cooperative is a contemporary pleasure, one of those qualitative jumps given by the video game over the last decade in a massive way. It was in the previous generation that the concept of the co-op was moved massively to the titles and we discovered significant proposals that allowed us to enjoy in the company of hours and hours of fun. The cooperative was installed in the market next to the competitive game by inventing a new way of playing.
There are many cooperative games on consoles and PC. When a study tries to offer collaborative in its proposal, two things can happen. The first is that it is a correct addition; the second is that it is made by mere inertia and not finished. We are not here to talk about the latter, but about those games that have squeezed the cooperative to the fullest. Here is a selection of the best co-op experiences of recent years.
- Gears of War 4
The Gears of War saga has always been a guarantee of success when it comes to the cooperative. Practically all of your deliveries are enjoyable in online company, but if we have to keep one, we select the fourth episode not only because it is a visual spectacle, but because it has an undeniable quality: the crossover game with PC. The bullets we fired in the company in the title of the Coalition are of the best in Xbox One and Windows.
- A Way Out (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
In our list of the best cooperative games, there is also space for innovation and that space is occupied by Way Out, Electronic Arts and Hazelight Studios. Josef Fares ‘ bet plunges us into a story capable of catching players both for their narrative and for their gameplay. It also has an essential strong point: you only need one copy to play online, a detail that we cannot thank enough.
- Helldivers (PS4, PS3, PS Vita, PC)
Another indie that deserves to be part of this list is Helldivers; Arrowhead’s demanding cooperative action proposal. Up to four players can go to distant planets to meet targets while trying to prevent dozens of waves of enemies from tearing their characters apart. It is like a game of quality stem from Starship Troopers that can play on computers and consoles.
- The Division (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
Ubisoft has also captivated us with Tom Clancy’s The Division, a long-lived saga of this generation that already has its second part on its way. Traveling around this New York City affected by money sickness and full of rebellion while being part of this Special Forces Division is a visual experience that, also, convinces by its role-playing aspects within the third-person action games. Highly recommended.
- Destiny 2 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
In the section on cooperative action games, it is undeniable that Destiny 2 must occupy a privileged position. Bungie and Activision’s bet has improved as seen in the first part, offering more content and captivating players who enjoyed the original delivery. With its campaign, its challenges and all the content it brings, Destiny 2 is one of the best cooperative experiences we can enjoy.

In this universe of AAA games with a cooperative component, we should highlight the Grand Theft Auto heist with GTA Online, the multiplayer section of GTA V that catches millions of players every month and is the new golden goose of Rockstar Games. Your community of huge players and those who enjoy cooperative ways like punches know what it’s like to feel part of it. A whole revolution within the successful study.
- Ghost Recon Wildlands (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
Ubisoft’s open-world video game is an ideal title to enjoy in Co-operative and, in fact, loses part of its essence when we enjoy it alone, being a much better experience when we formed a group of four friends and started doing missions on a gigantic map full of adventures, drug traffickers and, above all, a lot of action.
- Is of Thieves (PC, Xbox One)
Rare’s new work is designed to be enjoyed in Co-operative and has already seduced millions of pirates around the world.
