The 10 best 2 player PS4 games

By Aaron Potter | | 136740 |

Looking for a good excuse to jump into the best 2 player PS4 games currently out there? We can’t say we blame you. The PlayStation 4 has quickly grown to become the fastest-selling console across the globe for a reason, full of great first- and third-party experiences that pretty much everyone will love – why wouldn’t you want to experience them with a friend? . The PS4 controller is officially called the Dualshock 4, and while you only get one of them out of the box, any of the 2 player PS4 games listed below are a great reason to pick up a second!

Whether you’re in the mood for cel-shaded loot shooting or want to smash through a familiar world entirely made of LEGO bricks together, the PS4 has plenty of co-operative multiplayer games sure to whet your appetite. Here are the 10 best 2 player PS4 games (both online and local) that let you go at it as a pair.

10. Wolfenstein Youngblood

Wolfenstein Youngblood 2 player ps4

A semi sequel to the Nazi-slaying stories we got to experience in Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein II: The New Order, Wolfenstein: Youngblood is the first entry in MachineGames’ beloved series to dedicate itself entirely to co-op. It’s one of the best 2 player games on PS4 because you and a friend are able to gear up and roll out as BJ Blazkowicz’s daughters, Jess and Sophie, who descend into an alternate history version of 1980s Paris in search of their missing father. The result is a balls-to-the-wall first-person shooter that is the perfect excuse to blast through Nazis.

Every gun you pick up can be equipped with bigger, better attachments – all of which help to make you and your teammate a much more effective killing-machine duo. Open-ended levels, meanwhile, allow you to approach missions however you see fit, whether you want to sneak up on enemies stealthily or go all guns blazing. One of the best ways Wolfenstein: Youngblood manages to scratch that 2 Player PS4 itch is in that only one person need purchase it, that person can then invite anyone on their friends list that has downloaded the demo to enjoy the full experience.

    9. LittleBigPlanet 3

    LittleBigPlanet 3

    Side-scrolling puzzle-platformers simply don’t get more charming than LittleBigPlanet 3. It expanded on the previous two games by adding in another three cute characters in the mix, each of which combine with the abilities of Sackboy to make sitting on the sofa and playing this with friends even more fun. OddSock, Swoop and Toggle all play differently, jumping, swimming, swinging, grabbing across an endless collection of player-created levels.

    All previous user-generated stages from LittleBigPlanet  and LittleBigPlanet 2 carry over into this one, meaning you’ll never be at a loss for things to do. This is in addition to a carefully crafted single-player mode that includes the voice talents of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, made using the same tools available to players. Whether you want to get in and create together or just play through other’s inventions with friends, LittleBigPlanet 3 is one of the best 2 player PS4 games that can’t be played anywhere else.

    8. Diablo III Eternal Collection

    Diablo 3 ps4

    Developed by Blizzard Entertainment, Diablo III is quite rightly considered by many to be the magnum opus of dungeon-crawling games. You and up to three friends can make a personalised character out of a decent number of classes, taking the fight to the devil himself in glorious top-down fashion. No dungeon crawler is complete without its fair share of loot, and that’s exactly what keeps players coming back for more in Diablo III. Everything you pick up and equip while playing makes your character a stronger, more formidable warrior.

    The Eternal Collection is the only one available on PS4, and this is a good thing considering that it bundles the original Diablo III characters and campaign with the new Reaper of Souls expansion. The result is a feature-complete package that’ll have you and friends busy for potentially hundreds of hours, especially considering the post-campaign adventure mode which ensures the slashing and loot never need come to an end.

    7. Journey to the Savage Planet

    The newest entry on this list is one of the most colourful, fun and appropriately silly 2 player PS4 games you’ll find. Journey to the Savage Planet sends you and a friend to the hostile world of AR-Y 26, documenting the local fauna, environments and alien wildlife to determine whether or not the planet is safe for human habitation in future. You are your friend spend a lot of time exploring because of this, acquiring useful upgrades that let you access areas that were previously unreachable.

    The one catch is that only 2 player online co-op is possible in Journey to the Savage Planet, so those looking to cosy up on a couch may want to pass. Still, if you and a friend or loved one are lucky enough to have two PS4 consoles in the same house, this pulpy space exploration game has a lot to offer, including a satirical sense of humour, colourful scenery and a general sense of not taking it so seriously.

    6. LEGO DC Super Villains

    It was always inevitable that a LEGO game would end up on this list. While we indeed had many to choose from, few offer as much freedom and fun as LEGO DC Super-Villains, originally released for PS4 in 2018. It makes full use of the split-screen co-op action you’ve come to expect from TT Games’ beloved franchise and includes well over 100 characters from the DC comics rogues’ gallery to play as – most of them rather deep cuts. Playing as the bad guys is what makes this brick-based spin-off all the more exciting, compared to other Batman focussed entries.

    It won’t take long for players to realise that LEGO DC Super-Villains is one of the best 2 player PS4 games, if only for the amount of joy both kids and kids at heart will have. Roaming around LEGO versions of Gotham, Metropolis and more as the Joker and his cronies never stops being fun. Once settling down on the sofa and loading it up, any comic book fan won’t be able to resist this more villainous take on the LEGO platformer format.

    5. Monster Hunter World

    Monster Hunter World 2 player ps4 gameplay

    The Monster Hunter series had previously only been able to be enjoyed by a cult following before the release of World, largely because a lot of entries were stranded on underpowered handheld consoles. Monster Hunter World, however, marked a significant step up for anyone who likes slaying giant beasties, boasting incredible graphics, fun gameplay and myriad monsters to hunt down. Almost every mission is playable with up to four players, making Monster Hunter World one of the best 2 Player PS4 games.

    Prior entries struggled with how mechanics-heavy getting to grips with the Monster Hunter combat could be, but World streamlines the entire experience to make stabbing giant creatures more accessible than ever. It’s an experience that can only be improved by fighting alongside a friend, with most late game monsters requiring explicit strategy and in-depth strategy. No wodner Monster Hunter World has since become one of Capcom’s best-selling games ever.

    4. Far Cry New Dawn

    The Far Cry series has made a name for itself as being an excuse for players to go an what is perhaps best described as a chaotic holiday. Every game since Far Cry 3 centres around you and a buddy taking down a maniacal dictator that is holding a local community at ransom, being a good enough excuse for you to shoot, parachute and infiltrate against legions of faceless enemies. Far Cry New Dawn marked a a significant change to this formula by spinning out from Far Cry 5 to let you roam a glitzy take on the post-apocalypse, but the 2 player fun remains intact.

    The highwaymen act as the big bads in this Mad Max-style world, with you having stepped into the shoes of an entirely new character tasked with taking down the tribe of organized bandits. Being set in the near future and at the end of the world gives Far Cry: New Dawn a notably more anarchic vibe than the mainline entries, gifting you and a co-op partner a suite of makeshift weapons such as the Saw blade launcher, which shoots out saw discs at rapid pace to let you make light work of the crazy inhabitants.

    3. Dying Light: The Following

    Dying Light 2 zombies

    From the makers of the Dead Island games came Dying Light in 2015, setting players off within a fully explorable depiction of South Africa, which just so happens to have been overtaken by the undead. The beauty of this zombie-ravaged world, however, is that it’s entirely playable in two-player co-op, allowing you and a friend to complete side missions and play through an engaging story. You’ll do so as you both craft new weapons and fight to survive, leaping over the hordes if you must.

    Dying Light may have initially released close to five years ago, but in 2016 the game received a substantial update that rebranded the game Dying Light: The Following. It introduced a new story campaign, controllable vehicles and an entirely new section of South Africa to explore. Dying Light 2 might finally make its way to PS4 in 2020, but until that time there’s so much content for you and a friend to jump into in the original. That’s why Dying Light: The Following is one of the best 2 player PS4 games.

    2. Call of Duty: WWII

    As the most popular first-person shooting series in the world, Call of Duty had found itself stuck in a creative rut up until recently. Call of Duty: WWII was the entry to bring it back on course, doing away with all the glitzy spectacle of futuristic weaponry and instead return the series to its World War II roots with pure, boots on the ground gameplay. While the campaign unfortunately doesn’t support 2-player co-operative play, the horde-focused zombies mode has never been better.

    You and up to three of your friends are tasked with facing wave after wave of the undead, seeing how long you can survive by keeping your wits about you and your aim true. Every new wave of zombies becomes more challenging, forcing your team to constantly shake up your tactics and not get caught on the backfoot. Co-ordination is key in Call of Duty: WWII, and that’s why it makes our list of the 10 best 2 player games.

    1. Borderlands 3

    Some looter-shooters may come and go, but for many, the uncontested king of the genre is the madcap Borderlands franchise. Having stayed dormant since 2014’s Pre-sequel on PS3, Borderlands 3 exploded back onto the scene earlier this year – bringing with it more guns, four new vault hunter classes and several cool ways for players to make this FPS adventure their own. What’s more, it retains split-screen co-op play as well as the ability to do so online.

    It doesn’t take long for Borderlands 3 to immerse you within a beautiful cell-shaded world, where every mission you play with friends makes you feel like you’re flicking through the pages of a real-life comic book. New villains The Calypso Twins will taunt you to no end throughout the story campaign, giving you all the motivation you need to take them down. Loot as many guns as possible and have fun doing it, all while having up to three other players fighting by your side.
